Sunday 26 November 2006
1. Tivoli DAB Classic Radio This digital radio is simple, robust and good looking. I use it as my alarm - it makes getting up just a little bit easier. £229, John Lewis, tel: 08456 049 049,
2. Dyson DC16 Root 6 handheld cleaner Yes, it's one of ours, but it's perfect for tackling crumbs or picking up pine needles. It doesn't clog and lose suction - ideal for those spot cleaning jobs. £100, Dyson, tel: 0800 279 5127, www.dyson.co.uk
3. Canon Digital Ixus 900 Ti This digital camera has a 10-megapixel CCD sensor and retains a high resolution when you zoom in on small details. £299, Canon, tel: 08705 143 723, www.canon.co.uk
4. Epson EMP-TW700 projector I'm not keen on how televisions dominate living rooms. Projectors like this one are far more discreet. £1,299, Epson, tel: 08702 416 900, www.epson.co.uk
5. Mondaine Swiss Railways watch I'm a stickler for punctuality. This watch is very clear and based on the clocks found in Swiss railway stations. £98, tel: 0116 234 4655, www.mondaine.com
6. Philips Sonicare 9500 toothbrush A smart toothbrush that uses sonic vibrations to replicate the satisfying clean you get at the dentist's. £130, tel: 0845 601 03554, www.sonicare.co.uk
7. Monopoly Here & Now Electronic Banking With this new version of the classic game, players use "credit cards" and an electronic terminal to transfer money. £25, www.iwantoneofthose.com
8. Sony Micro Vault with Fingerprint Access This Sony USB key drive lets you keep your information secure by using fingerprint identification. £59, Sony, tel: 08705 111 999, www.sony.co.uk
