Fancy Tools

Peter Cripps and Hugh MacLeod say it all:

The sad fact is, if you like buying shiny new gadgets that is, whether they be cameras, laptops or even the latest silver Mont Blanc pen (or “writing instrument” as they prefer it to be known), there is no correlation between creativity and equipment cost or quantity. As Hugh MacLeod says in his book Ignore Everybody, ‘A fancy tool just gives the second-rater one more pillar to hide behind.'
