Techno Life: On the move - Tom Tom go satnav

I've had this for a year - it's great. It is entirely portable and self-contained. There's no aerial or anything else to plug in, it just sits on the dashboard of my Aston (Martin DB7 convertible) and does its stuff. Having this to give me directions is really useful. King of Shaves made only £300 in its first year; now we are second only to Gillette in our market. At first, I didn't see myself as an entrepreneur; I just did what I had to do to sell my product.
