Exercise 3
LISTENING 25 

Tamsin My favourite device was always my MP3 player. I took it everywhere with me so that I could listen to music. I had a mobile too, so I could make calls and send and receive texts. But when my mobile contract ran out, I upgraded to a smartphone, and it's the best gadget I've ever had. I don't need an MP3 player any more as I can store all my songs on the phone. Not only that, I can surf the Net, pick up my emails, and it's got a video camera.

Henry I'm crazy about sci-fi stories. I've probably got about 50 on the shelf in my bedroom. The problem is they take up a lot of space, so I asked Mum and Dad to get me an ebookreader for Christmas. It's really amazing. You just go to a website that sells ebooks and download them. It only takes about a minute to download a book. And they're a bit cheaper than real books. My ebookreader can store about 1,500 books - but it's the same size as a single book. If you're into reading, you should get one.

I'm not a big fan of gadgets - I've got a mobile, and my dad's old PC in my bedroom. But I really like the hard disk recorder that we've got at home. You can watch one programme while you're recording another, and it's got a huge memory so you can record loads of programmes. The other great thing is that you can pause a TV programme, if you have to answer the phone or something, and you can also rewind a programme and watch a bit of it again. It's really cool.
