    Zelda for best of E3 :P

    Tech... I only got a Bluray player last year, as a present. I only took it out of the box and plugged it in a couple of weeks ago. It still hasn't been used. DVDs get far more use from us, though I don't even usually watch them at all myself. I'm super bad at tech. If it's old and it works then it's fine, the only stuff I keep up to date with is my Nintendo gear :P

    Ha, phones. My smartphone is now about three and a half years old (and four years since release I think). I can't foresee when I'll upgrade, there's nothing more I need it to do. I'm more concerned about it somehow breaking, and then being stuck trying to find something to replace it with. But then I have a second unit here now, just in case. Should be right though.

    Longest gadgets... well, my phone before this one was a Nokia 6100 which I used from 2009 through to early 2013. If it weren't for a holiday that made me decide I needed a new more compact camera (cue the 808), I probably would still be using the 6100. And I only upgraded to that one in the first place because the mic on my 8250 died, and I'd been using that since maybe 2003 or so.

    ...brand loyalty's probably showing there a bit, isn't it?
