Still using same architects drafting table from 1995. Twin 23" cinema displays, two logitech 518 laser mice (the mouse is really hard to evolve around), blackberry (killer product, extortionate phone company rates and shitty service), 8GB Red iPod (this docks to car, kitchen Tivoli, and Roland digital drum kit), same Sharp solar powered calculator from 1989 ('s still the best, best ROI of any purchase ever), ari hart fly fishing reel (traingle model, reminder of elegant, simple, just slightly innovative design), Panasonic phone and answering machine out of frame to left from 1995 (both suck, but after 3 tries including a multi-hundred dollar Meridian set up, can't find better). Underneath desk: Mac G5 (1st model, sucky firewire, sucky core-midi bugs, cool iChat AV, cool iTunes, cool video editing, although FinalCut was UI was created by morons), Dell Precision 330 (the EverReady bunny of computers, although Win2000 is having compatibility problems with everything lately). Brother MFC 8840-D printer, fax, scanner, xerox (very satisfying $300 product, mainly b/c it prints 2 pages on both sides of a single sheet which means compression of 4:1 when printing drafts of long docs.), Toshiba Satellite Laptop M350s320 (stable, portable, does everything). Note: I own no computing device that runs north of 2GHz. That will be changing soon as I upgrade both Mac and PC. >1TB of external disc storage in various Lacie drives (this will be going up to 5TB in near future). Sony Powershot s110 camera (will soon be upgrading this trusty workhorse to the new 7 series for movie-shots, IS, bigger viewing screen), Zoom H-4 handy recorder (amazing product! - a hand held $300 24bit/96Khz recording studio with built in stereo mics that records on SD cards - "you are there" recordings anytime u want 'em...a high res audio "camera"), variousnetworking gizmos.
