Bob Tomalski is a self-confessed 'early adopter'. "Whether its recordable CD, a digital camera or a DVD player, I'm a sucker for buying them first" he says. "I frequently buy gadgets when I am off on my travels to Japan and Hong Kong". I often have samples of equipment, long before UK distributors. It's the only way to stay ahead in the competitive world of consumer electronics".
