I need a new laptop and that's about it. I've learnt from hard lessons that it's best to really wait for about 3 or 4 years when tech comes out.

I’m vaguely interested in whatever stereo components play hi resolution digital music or however it is that Hugh is listening to stuff nowadays. But that’s years away.

Otherwise, I’m not eyeballing new tech. Technology has gone so far past my expectations and needs, I’ve found it suits me just fine to be a late adapter.

Wood stove technology has come a long way! They burn super clean nowadays.

I'm sorry Jimbo that looks horrific. Imagine someone on the bus with one of those? Headphones are still the ultimate invention.

The bus is probably not the place for them as you'd upset people around you but I see me using them as I ride my bicycle. All the reviews I've seen say they sound good like a bubble of sound around your head. I'd also use them chilling here by my computer listening to tunes at a good volume and not disturbing my wife - - too much.

I've got Media Monkey on my computer for all my music files but like to transfer that to an external system as my computer is not always reliable.

Build yourself an audio streamer using a raspberry pi computer and an Allo Boss DAC (Google them). It is dead easy to do (no soldering or techy knowledge required) and will cost you less than £100.

Transfer all your audio files to an external hard drive and plug that into the streamer. Plug the streamer into your hifi. Control the playback from a tablet or smartphone. Sorted.
