my first Dyson

Unlike Don, the poor Antony waited and waited for the bargain, and he finally bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner.

Dyson DC26

Dyson is famous for its vacuum cleaners that use cyclonic separation and does not lose suction. Despite I bought the smallest non-handheld version, it is the most powerful vacuum cleaner I've ever used.

Unlike Don's beautiful Boston or picturesque Quincy, Sydney is unfortunately very dusty. I've vacuumed a few loads of dust, and like what it is best known of, it really does not lose suction, and it is very easy to empty the dust (no mess).

What was wrong with the vacuum cleaner we bought a while back? Well, it was a bag-less version, but horrible to empty it. And the worst part, it has lost suction.

Again, this Dyson vacuum cleaner was bought following Don's shopping principle, Antony decided on Dyson for its powerfulness (Don usually demands the best of the bests) and reliability (Don's very important longevity factor).

Once you tried Dyson vacuum cleaner, you don't want to go back to a regular one.

I would like thank thank Rev. Dr. Wu Yi's Myer Gift Card, it (and other gift cards) helped quite a fair bit towards the purchase of this Dyson vacuum cleaner. And I bought it on Boxing Day - the day of Australia's biggest sale.

I am surprised, that for someone whose first thoughts are not for tidiness or order, you got such a machine!
Maybe while playing with it, you can put your place in order? I mean that in the nicest possible way...LOL!!

I always tidy up before taking any photos. Well, getting rid of dust is far more important than tidying up.

Why is it "unlike Don ... Antony waited and waited for the bargain"? First, I always wait for bargains, second, I don't have a Dyson vacuum cleaner to begin with. I'm afraid your statement doesn't make much sense in this context.
You refuse to listen to me when I say Boston is very dusty, but you expect me to just trust you that Sydney is dusty - seems a bit unfair, if I may say so.
I don't usually demand the best of the best; I have to compromise because (unlike you) money is a big concern for me.

You probably have an even better vacuum cleaner than Dyson, which forgive my lack of knowledge, I don't know any.
Because I live in Sydney, and I know how dusty it is. Unlike beautiful Boston, Sydney does not snow, which we all know that snow does not create much dust. As for the gadgets, you have a very high demand on the specifications.
Posted by Antony on 31 December 2010 12:25 PM.
No, we don't, sorry. In fact, our vacuum cleaner is starting to break.
What does snow have to do with dust? And what do my ancient gadgets have to do with high specification demands?

Because a place that has beautiful snow is usually not dusty at all, in fact, pretty clean.
When you decide to get any gadgets, you usually have very very high requirement on specifications. Remember the powerful Nokia N900 you want(ed)?

And how, may I ask, would you know whether a snowy place is "pretty clean"? I can assure you it's not - salt and sand trucks leave some pretty nasty stuff on the roads, that gets tracked indoors along with the snow, which melts on the floors.
I never decided on an N900. I merely said that if I could afford one, I would get one. Of course, I couldn't afford an N900, so I had to settle on a 6-year-old phone instead.

Because, the snow resorts I visited were all very clean, hardly any dust.
Just like what I said, you only really want the very top model (e.g. N900). For comparison, I don't demand (not even dream) about those top models.
Posted by Antony on 1 January 2011 1:27 AM.
You were comparing professionally-cleaned ski resorts to the real world?
There's a big difference between demanding and dreaming that you seem to miss.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 1 January 2011 8:25 AM.
Well, they don't professionally clean streets and any public areas.
What salt and sand trucks? We don't just have dust on the floors, but also on top of all furnitures.
Posted by Antony on 1 January 2011 12:34 PM.
Therefore your comparison does not work.
The salt and sand trucks they use to make the snow driveable. See, since you guys don't have to put up with terrible snow, you don't need to have sand trucks.
It is dusty here, not just on the floors, but on the furniture as well. I don't know why that's so hard to accept.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 4 January 2011 6:44 AM.
Still, it is beyond imagination that beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy would be dusty at all.
Posted by Antony on 4 January 2011 8:51 PM.
Only to you, since you're the one with unrealistically high expectations of the two cities.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 5 January 2011 1:21 AM.
Everybody (including those who haven't been to Boston and Quincy) knows that Boston and Quincy are indeed beautiful and picturesque.
