    Yeah Dyson should be up there IMHO!

    I think we're all looking at the list in different ways. Some of these things are brands and some are single items made by a brand. Some are known top items owned by some and others are just general things owned by many.

    Are we looking for a certain brand that consistently produces top goods or for a specific item which has become an icon regardless of the other products made by that company?

    The 'Airblade' thingy? First saw one at Alton towers a couple of years ago, and I agree, immense!

    An air-hand-dryer thingy that actually dries hands, the same day as you first switch it on?

    Had the basic upright Dyson, in fact `upright` isnt the best description as the feckin thing would topple over if if you just looked at it

    Hence the handle broke, then the flexipipe split, and we were never blown (sucked) away by it hooverability, was a bit cack really.
    I presume the new ones are better.


    What was the question again?

    Gentleman please!!!....a vacuum cleaner, are we really a bunch of women!? I leave you alone to develop the list for a 24 hours and look what's become of you! A Dyson in my opinion doesn't make it to the list, and the reason is not because it's a good product, but the revolution was the Hoover in my opinion, and we all recognise that in the way we refer to vacuum cleaners as the "hoover" or "doing the hoovering".

    Stanley Knife, Chevy V8, Thermos, all contenders as far as i'm concerned, nice and manly. iPod too actually, it's too young to be iconic yet, but it will be one day.

    Mr Oir has a point `oovers` are a bit girlie like.

    Thermos in there or what?

    Mr Cox goes offline and the whole thing goes tits.

    Talking of which, are Boobs on the list yet?

    My long term ASN subscription depends on it.

    I think you could be right Staz, i seem to be going off on an "iconic" trip too, and I haven't got a clue why! I think brand is important actually, I got the hump about the computer mouse being removed, but actually it's not iconic, it was revolutionary, but a mouse is still a mouse, you dont go out and buy the "Logitech Mouse", or the "Microsoft Mouse", you just go and buy a mouse, it's like the saying the "car" should be on the list. Coca Cola would be a good one perhaps.

    Perhaps the list needs to be defined further. Seeing as I started the ball rolling, Warren has added further parameters, feel free to add your mark chief.

    Like I said earlier, I don't think Stanley knife should be on this list, it would be on the other type of list i.e. a single iconic item. Stanley products are cheap and nasty so as a BRAND they shouldn't be anywhere near this list.

    The original Playstation, it made gaming cool.



    I spent 600 on importing one, was a lot of money for me, was a lot of money for the time too but was worth it when that sonic boom hit after booting it up.

    Good to see the list progressing. A hair cut and a long night working for an unexpected Monday presentation have been keeping me honest.

    Dyson Airblade hand cleaner is a great evolution product, so I'm all for that being on the list.

    Does the VW camper stack up, or does it fall under the umbrella of van??

    I think the Dyson is an evolutionary product, it's taken a necessity product and reinvented it. However I've just replaced mine with a Sebo X4. It's not beautiful, its not bagless, but the hose doesn't split. It still falls over BUT no-one seems to be able to cure that.

    Hands free evolution, for your beer. I know Newcastle Brown has been mentioned (beer is as old as the dawn of time), but surprised that it's not been mentioned more on here:

    Is this an iconic brand list?
    Thought it was about particular items. i.e....

    2. Trainer:Converse Chuck Taylor Allstars
    3. Camera: Nikon D3X D-SLR
    4: Sauce: Tabasco (Red)
    7. Heinz Baked beans
    8. Thermos Flask


    If an item is that good then it doesn't really matter how crap the rest of the stuff the manufacturer produces. Does it?
    They're a one hit wonder... so! Doesn't make that one good item they've produced any less good.

    Technics SL1200 mk2



    If your into DJing, or maybe dance music in general, then you'll know what one of these is. If not chances are you perhaps pulled your missus in a cheesey nightclub where the DJ was using a pair of these.

    Pretty much revolutionary design, released in 1972. It gets slight updates roughly every 5 years, pretty much bomb proof. A friend has had his for 18 years and they have been all around the world with him from Goa to some dodgy London Squat parties, you can even have them sent away to Technics to be serviced, if you look after them and keep the boxes they tend to retain their value for quite a few years.

    3. Camera: Nikon D3X D-SLR
    4: Sauce: Tabasco (Red)
    7. Heinz Baked beans
    8. Thermos Flask


    If an item is that good then it doesn't really matter how crap the rest of the stuff the manufacturer produces. Does it?
    They're a one hit wonder... so! Doesn't make that one good item they've produced any less good.
    That's how it started and yeah it does matter because otherwise the list doesn't make sense! It's either a brand OR an object, not both.

    The way I look at the list it should be the brand and then a product in particular like this:

    1. Toaster: Dualit (4 slice)
    2. Trainer: Converse (Chuck Taylor Allstars)
    3. Camera: Nikon (D3X D-SLR)
    4: Sauce: Tabasco (Red)
    5. Torch: Maglite (4D cell)
    6. Multitool: Leatherman (Wave)
    7. Staple food: Heinz (Baked beans)
    8. Travel Product: Thermos (Flask)

    If it's about an iconic item then it's be something like:

    1. Stanley Knife
    2. Walkman
    3. Ipod
    etc etc

    How about Nokia? They pretty much made the mobile phone mass market. Think of a Nokia ring tone and we will all think of the same one!

    Oh, and Google? You don't search for something on the internet, you google it. If someone is asking you something they should just be googling you tell them to www.f***inggoogleit.com (apologies mods, but I love suggesting that site to people). And they weren't the incumbent in the search engine world, they came along with a better way of doing it.

    Yep Google are awesome. Have you seen the Google Wave video?

    EDIT: Coincidentally my Wave account went live today, been waiting 3 months! /EDIT

    I remember when we first got a Dyson. We had a dog at the time and it just picked up thousands of hairs that we never knew were there!

    Hmmm, greasy donjay!

    Technics SL-1200/1210 turntable ges my vote as an iconic product. Even my Dad had one as his home turntable, so it spanned from DJ weapon of choice to average Joe plastic disc spinner.

    AND, DON'T FORGET: TOP GEAR (the iconic car show) IS SHOWING IN HIGH DEFINITION ON BBC HD AT 9PM TONIGHT - DON'T MISS IT (I'm shouting)
