It was a nice and sunny day so rode my bicycle to Akihabara. I used to go there almost every weekend at one time to look around for new computer parts and check out prices for RAM, CPU etc, but realised that this was my first visit in months.
The only reason I went there was to buy my last toy for this year. A digital camera. I have had my eye on the Canon IXY 320 because of its small size and thats what I got. Its small enough to fit in my jacket’s pocket and would be ideal for the Hokkaido snowboard trip next month. 3.2 Megapixels, rechargable Lithium ion battery and a multi-lingual menu. Included with the camera was a 64MB Compact Flash card and an aluminium carrying case though I would have preferred a smaller, more portable cover.
