Wayback in the 80’s, there were no PS3 and Nintendo DSi. All I had was a couple of Game & Watch and an Atari. Oh and a Gameboy of course! But those were all bought from abroad by my father who had worked in Saudi Arabia for more than 26 years.

These days I’ve noticed a quick turn over of gadgets. PSP1 to PSP3, Nintendo Lite to Nintendo DSi, iPhone to iPad, Desktop to Laptop. Sometimes I wonder what would be the in demand gadgets come Derelle and Erchelle’s time. I just wish we can still afford to give whatever they want as how my husband showers us with gadgets today. Not to forget the mobile phones. Now this makes me think what is the best age to give kids a mobile phone?
