Lust and Gas

For one reason or another, I've been suffering from a bad case of GAS lately (, I don't have the farts). G.A.S, or gear acquisition syndrome is an unfortunate malady that affects geeks of all ages, shapes and sizes wherein the afflicted geek has an inclination to spend his monthly rent on a gadget or two of choice.

For the past couple of days, I have been lusting over several gadgets that would render my credit card useless for a good few months. Because of GAS, they're now more of a need rather than a want. I feel like I'd explode like Harry's Aunt Marge if I don't get at least one of these gadgets soon.

NEED/WANT #1- Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G + WiFi

Ain't it purdy?

This is absolutely a thing of beauty, isn't it? I've been lusting over this for the longest time. In fact, as soon as it was anounced early this year, I knew would get it. I love iOS for it's simplicity and class but Android has claimed my heart for its customizability and flexibility. Add the fact that this is the slimmest tablet to date and I'm good as sold.

NEED/WANT #2- Canon EOS 1100D Red

I let go of my SLR when I found out I was going to be assigned out of the country for several months because I didn't want to lug a chunky camera abroad. Although it was a sensible choice, I've been itching to take pretentious photos with a larger sensor. I was a Nikon user, and although I have no complaints, I want to jump ship to Canon for a while to learn their quirks. This one caught my eye admittedly because of its looks.

The red finish is just gorgeous.
NEED/WANT #3- Nescafe Dolce Gusto Circolo

Found out about this genius invention from BuhayKuneho's review. Wouldn't you want a perfect cup of coffee as soon as you wake up in the morning? With this neat little gadget, you can have better-than-coffee-shop-coffee coffee anytime you want it in the comfort of your own home. The coffee refills are in nice little convenient packets. They're affordable enough too, I've half a mind to get one for here and just bring it home next year.

I think I'm in love.
I started writing this post in the hopes of tempering this unhealthy lust over these gadgets. It didn't work. Lock up my credit cards for me, will you?
