Deletion discussion[edit]

This article has been listed on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion in the past. See /deletion for the discussion archive.

I'd like to know what "gadget" means, but I'd also like to know what "to have multiple issues" means. Wikipedia should set a standard for English usage, and using this catchall bullshit euphemism should be discouraged as a matter of editorial policy. In other words, I have an issue with "issue" and "multiple issues" should be replaced with "multiple problems" or "multiple shortcomings," or else "there are multiple criticisms of this article" or "this article may not be up to Wikipedia standards for multiple reasons," etc.

Saat ini tak dapat dipungkiri jika dunia gadget sudah semakin berkembang. Kalau jaman dulu kita sangat kebingungan jika saat dalam perjalanan ponsel kita kehabisan batrei dan disaat yang bersamaan kita juga sangat sedang membutuhkan ponsel tersebut, mesti buru-buru cari rumah makan, warung atau tempat lain hanya untuk sekedar mengisi ulang batrei ponsel kita. Nmun dengan perkembangan teknologi sekarang hal itu tidak perlu kita alami lagi. Ya, sekarang sudah ada yang namanya "Power Bank" .Anda tentu sudah sangat paham apa itu power bank jadi tidak perlu saya jelaskan lagi di sini. Sudah banyak juga produk-produk power bank yang ditawarkan oleh perusahaan-perusahaan ternama, dan mereka juga berlomba lomba memngeluarkan produk power bank terbaik mereka untuk menarik perhatian konsumennya. dan tentunya juga konsumen yang yang akan jadi kebingungan dengan produk yang para produsen tersebut tawarkan. namun walau bagaimanapun keberadaan power bank saat ini sangat membantu dalam aktifitas kita sehari hari, tinggal bagaimana kita harus pandai-pandai dalam memilih produk power bank yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan kita.

Rv[edit]

I couldn't find any other classification of gadgets anywhere, so I placed my own classification back. The site I linked to the article is my reference source, I hope you will not see it as a commercial again, as it is not. If you still wish to delete everything I contribute to the community, please give me reasons for that, because I do it for everyone and not for me. I don't benefit from this...

2 years later and it is still basically a definition page[edit]

Perhaps this needs to be revisited. This article, by the nature of its topic, will not progress further than giving a definition of gadget and a few weak examples (which imo violate pov since what you think is a gadget I might not). Fully 1/2 of this entry is a definition/entymology and the other half can be taken care of by a list. KsprayDad 18:49, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Why is iPhone a "gadget"?[edit]

The page says gadgets are often thought of as a "novelty". That infers that the iPhone is a novelty. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.17.80.165 (talk) 14:15, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Intuition for Amiga[edit]

Not sure if it is notable enough to include in the main article, but if I rembember correctly from my Amiga days, gadgets was a rather central concept in Intuition (Amiga). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.228.208.145 (talk) 06:56, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
