A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

What's a tool, gadget, or gizmo you purchased genuinely believing that it would be really useful and you'd get a lot of mileage out of it...only to have it sit on a shelf, unused, for most of its duration in your ownership?

A blender. I forget exactly when we bought it but we kept it for many years, moving it around never using it. We finally threw it out a couple of years ago when we re-modeled the kitchen and even then I was going to keep it. I couldn't stand to throw it away. What finally decided the matter was that I couldn't find a place to put it.

Coffee maker, which we asked for on our wedding list, because we thought we'd entertain coffee drinkers - I don't drink it, and the Wife seldom does - but we used it once in a decade before we gave it away.

My ASUS Transformer, a 10" Android tablet. It's a perfectly good piece of hardware, and I thought I would be using it for web surfing in bed, reading books whose illustrations don't display well on a smaller reader, showing photos to people...

I do those things, but much less often than I expected.
