Marina Gomes, director of Mprove IT and database developer at Mighty River Power in Hamilton, tells Chris Gardner it's hard to choose her favourite gadget.

What's your favourite gadget?

Well, I have many favourites.

My Asus Android tablet (TF101 not prime) and My Cisco Mino HD video camera are my latest cool stuff.

Oh, I actually got a 23-inch Samsung LED monitor recently too.

And the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Headset – I use it every day for music and as a headset for soft phone.

In my handbag, I have a TF101 tablet, a LG P500 smartphone, Plantronics 360 Bluetooth earpiece, Lumix compact digital camera, Flip video camera, pen drive and portable drive!

My Plantronics 360 Bluetooth earpiece is the oldest device, but is still a high performer. I have had four Bluetooth earpiece devices before finding this one.

Therefore I can say that this is a good one! It fits nicely in your ear not bulgy or uncomfortable.

You can actually hear properly and whoever you are talking to can hear you too. You would think that these are pretty basic requirements, but you would be surprised how many reputable brand devices fail them.

What do you mainly use it for?

Well, its main use is while I'm driving, normally running late and having to let people know. It easily pairs with my Nokia work phone. As well as my Android.

How would you change it to make it better?

I don't actually know I like it just as it is.
