One thing I have a love/hate relationship with are vacuum cleaners. I hate vacuuming but I love shopping for vacuums. It's interesting to see what sort of new technology there is for vacuums. I mean, you're basically sucking up dirt. How many different ways can you invent something that will suck up dirt? By the way, Dyson is very pretty and, from what I hear, works wonders but they are SO expensive! Not all of us are rich Dyson people!
