Fashionably Techy: Dear Santa, I’ve Been Good This Year.

[Like a magpie, you gravitate towards things that are shiny: cell phones, TVs, anything that allows you to play Rock Band. But just because you love ‘em doesn’t mean you know much about ‘em. That’s where we come in. Every week we will be highlighting the best, coolest and shiniest in technology. Consider us your personal Geek Squad.
And let us tell ya; with CC on your side, geek has never looked so chic.]
When I was young I used to sit in my room late at night and go through the toy catalogue page by page, writing down everything I wanted in a handy, easy-to-use list for my mom. She was a busy woman; I was only trying to help her out. Well, she didn’t buy me anything that was on my ten page list and, although this list is quite a bit shorter, I don’t think she’s going to buy anything from this one either. But I can try.
Below is my Holiday Wish List. I know this season is all about the giving, but this is what I want to be getting. So, if you are in the mood to give, I am definitely in the mood to recieve any and all of these electronics.
I still want the Ipod Touch. It’s so much fun. Touch screens are just great on their own; they make anything ten times better and boat loads more fun. But this little machine is loaded with the awesome. Not just for music but for games and videos as well. I need at least 16 GB because I do a lot (what? I get bored!), but the 8 GB should be ample (and cheaper!) for your Average Joe. Of course, if you get even more bored than me there’s always the 32 GB option. . .
Speaking of getting bored, I’m pretty bored with my phone. I’d love a new one. In fact I want the G1. Everything you love about Google in a phone. Since everyone in the world is already plugged into Google (hello, Gmail!) this phone is just an extension of your everyday. It’s like your laptop but small and with phone capabilities. The G1 is a hot little piece of equipment and makes an excellent stocking stuffer.
But sometimes I like to unplug from the world (which is what I call the internet) and just game mindlessly. I like to do this in new and different locations. Like the mall, the library, or the bus. For this, the Nintendo DS is my pick. I’ve been down with Nintendo since it was a gray box of 8 bit goodness. Nintendo is the King of handheld gaming. PSP ain’t got nothing on them. The DS has a wide array of games, handles well, and is extremely fun. Animal Crossing? I’m set.
I really need a new TV (for when I am bored of internet and gaming). I want to 32” HDTV. Not just because my old TV totally died on me, but because tube sets are on their way out. Not only that, but all the new gen systems (which are really current gen systems) like the Wii just look better on HDTV. And they save major space in small quarters.
So my laptop is clunking along pretty slowly these days. She’s an old girl and seen some better days. I’m loyal to her but I think its getting time to trade up. I don’t really use my laptop for anything other than a glorified typewriter, but it would be nice to be able to do other things. Like watch movies. Dell has some sweet deals and are easily customizable for whatever you need. Like loading up all that music for your sweet new iPod.
That’s my list. What do you guys want?
