A thread where people would expect you to have owned something common, but actually, you haven't.

For example:

I have never owned a football.

Mobile phone. Actually nobody would expect me to own one so probably doesn’t count.

Any jewellery other than a wrist watch.

Do you own a smartphone? If so, it's fair to say you own a computer. They have more memory, processing power and capabilities than the computers I started working on back in 1981, that were bigger than a phone box. A smartphone is most definitely a computer :)
No it isn’t, it’s a phone with computer capability.
I’ve never owned a pc or laptop

Aargh, I've bitten..... I'd put it the other way round nowadays, that a smartphone is a computer with the ability to make calls :). The technical definition of a computer is an electronic device that manipulates information, or data. It has the ability to store, retrieve, and process data. Smartphones very much are computers, and listed as such on many resources
