Zoë Fos­ter Blake gets techy (and con­fesses her on­line sins).

1. THE iphone X CAM­ERA IS PHE­NOM­E­NAL: it may as well be in­tra­venously at­tached. We still lug our beloved Canon 6D around the world, but most of our travel photos are taken with the phone. On por­trait mode, specif­i­cally. From $1,579, AP­PLE, ap­ple.com/au 2. MY SON’S In­stax Mini 9 Instant Cam­era cre­ates rad, flash-based fash­ion ed­i­to­rial-level po­laroids. They’re amaz­ingly ’80s and I stick them all over the kitchen. $99, FU­JI­FILM, jb­hifi.com.au 3. MY HUS­BAND bought me a Dyson Su­per­sonic hair dryer for Christ­mas 2016 but I was so at­tached to my Par­lux I ig­nored it for a year. I’m evan­gel­i­cal about it now that I wear my curls nat­u­rally: the dif­fuser is mag­nif­i­cent. $499, DYSON, dyson.com.au 4. WE RE­CENTLY IN­VESTED in a cou­ple of Bang & Olufsen P6 Beo­play speak­ers – they’re breath­tak­ing. I play DJ from morn­ing un­til our Net­flix binge once the kids are asleep, so qual­ity speak­ers are im­por­tant. Mu­sic. Is. Life. $599, BANG & OLUFSEN, beo­store.com.au 5. I JUST TREATED MY­SELF to a glo­ri­ous new beast, the Macbook Pro and, for the first time, I spared no ex­pense on mem­ory or speed. Ev­ery sin­gle piece of work I do spews out of this ma­chine. It should be flaw­less. From $1,899 for a 13-inch, AP­PLE, ap­ple.com/au 6. ON FLIGHTS, I smash through emails with a blue­tooth mini Keys-to-go Ul­tra Slim Key­board, and it means I can check in my heavy lap­top. $99.95, LOGITECH, ap­ple.com/au 7. BABY IN ARM + STIR­RING DIN­NER + PHONE CALL = SORCERY! Airpods, $229, AP­PLE, ap­ple.com/au 8. I POP MY PHONE on the Boost Up Wire­less Charg­ing Pad when I get home from the of­fice – a gen­tle re­minder to leave it alone for a few hours. $109, BELKIN, har­veynor­man.com.au
