I'm one of those greenies that drive you all crazy so I'm pretty condensed in my technological items. I carry one phone that doubles up as music (thank you spotify) and a low quality camera as my main day to day hands on product. I do have a laptop and camera, however I've also condensed them down as light and small as I can make them. I need to ensure I can carry all my tech on me so if I loose my bag, nothing of any real cost is gone. Lets face it I can replace clothes almost anywhere.
Phone & PC
HTC One M8:
This is my second phone in 6 years and they have both been HTC's. That should tell you something.
I don't replace my phones on a whim. I try and buy something that is really advanced and then hang on to it until its either completely obsolete or it dies. I've had 3 Nokia's and then got my first HTC 6 years ago. That lasted 5 years and then I upgraded just over a year ago. I really like this phone. I love Android and I've found the phone to be really easy to use, the battery life is great and even though the screen is really clear, it seems really compact in my bag or pocket. It also seems to be pretty bullet proof so far!

Surface Pro 3 512 GB:
Is it a tablet? is it a laptop? - Its both!
While I'm sure its not for everyone, I am so impressed with my Surface Pro. I got the 512 GB version and also the magnetic keyboard and Microsoft mouse which I 100% would recommend. I can run the full Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator versions along with Visual Studio 2010 with no challenge at all. Its light, its easy to use, it seems to be really durable and I'm not limited to trying to edit photos on a tablet. It really is a PC. I thought the fact that it was only Wi-Fi would be a challenge but it never has been. There is wi-fi everywhere now and I've only had to use my phone as a wi-fi hotspot maybe twice since I've had it. Very impressed.

Accessories and Faves
Kobo Aura H2O:
An e-reader that is water resistant for those beach side lazy days.
I couldn't believe my luck when I found a reader that was water resistant. I literally couldn't get my money out quick enough. I was more thinking of the dust when I saw the water resistant quality of this reader but I must say its pretty cool to be able to read poolside and not worry if your hair drips water on it. The battery life is great and it takes about 30 seconds to get a new book if you've run out (provided there is wi-fi of course), but the best thing is because you just get books straight onto your reader you don't have to bother with syncing it to your PC.

BlueAnt Pump - Wireless HD Sportbuds:
These bluetooth waterproof earbuds are designed well, amazing quality and above all comfortable. They work with my phone and my surface pro.
You can have your phone up to 100 feet away from them and they still get clear signal. You can rinse them under the tap and they come with 3 different sets of rubber plugs so they should fit everyone. I've actually done laps with these in (although I'm pretty sure that's not what they are made for) and they are still going strong months later. Its so convenient not having chords everywhere when you exercise and you can also ensure that your phone is safe and not expose to the elements.
