Jonathan: My favourite item of technology is my camera. Here it is! It's a really nice camera. It's quite small and quite light. It's kind of pocket-sized, so it's easy to carry around everywhere, and the picture quality is really good. It's better than my phone camera.
Jo G: I never had a TV before, at home, but now I'm injured and I can't run, I can't walk very well. So I've treated myself to this beauty. And it's just changed my life.
Jo B: One of my favourite items of technology – apart from the washing machine, which is just brilliant – is this little portable speaker. The quality's really great, so to listen to music or podcasts, you can go out and about, and it's much better than just listening straight off the phone, I find.
Kirk: Bluetooth headphones with noise-cancelling technology come in really handy on the train or in train stations.
Tina: So my favourite piece of technology – it's a bit tricky because I'm not really a technology sort of person, not really much of a techie either – but, I have to say, is my most recent present that I got. It is my retro-radio. Can you see that? It's so cool, isn't it? It's really jazzy! I guess that's why I like it. It's very neat. But it's also an alarm clock. It's also a speaker, so I can listen to my podcasts from my phone and it uses Bluetooth into the radio. And also I've got all my favourite radio channels preset, so I can just pick and choose which one I want. [I] always like a bit of disco music. So, I'm not sure how much that is technical or not, but that's my piece.
