GIZMOHOLIC...

Oct 13, 2003, 9:10am

As you can probably tell by reading my ranties around here, I'm a bit of a Gizmoholic...

I think it all started in earnest when I was in an Eatons department store in suburban Ottawa back in 1983, and I saw the wonder of wonders: a Seiko TV Watch. For 1983, that was nothing short of revolutionary, and my lust for gizmos seemed to just flourish from that point onward.

I stumbled upon a dude actually wearing this watch just a day ago. I wish I had my smartphone camera ready to snap (uh… GIZMO!) but I didn't. I chatted with him briefly, and had a look see. The TV area was black, but the watch looked in great shape and was telling time. He said when he plugs in the pocket-receiver, the display lights up and still works, drawing in about four VHF channels in high points around Vancouver.

Just...  too... cool.
