Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Geek Gifts 2010 | Other Reco’s | It’s Saturday Again

Tech Republic has published their 2010 Gifts For Geeks Guide, which is a download-able PDF for members (available here). Seeing as how the percentage of you who might be geeks (or.. shopping for geeks) yet not be Tech Republic members might be kinda .. um, HUGE, I have provided a synopsis…

۰ The Apple iPad
۰ Alienware M11x gaming notebook
۰ Parrot AR.Drone Wi-Fi quadricopter
۰ LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0
۰ Roku XDS streaming media player
۰ VIZIO M470NV 47-Inch 1080p LED LCD HDTV
۰ Amazon Kindle Graphite 3G + Wi-Fi 2010
۰ Microsoft Kinect sensor for Xbox 360
۰ Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse
۰ Personal Soundtrack Shirt (seen on The Big Bang Theory)

* Shopping reco: That last is found in the ThinkGeek Holiday Gift Center, which may not be a Black Friday/Cyber Monday bargain seeker’s mecca, but there sure are some .. um, interesting things there!

* Shopping Advice reco: Though there’s no doubt that the iPad is this year’s “hot item”, and top’s Tech Republic’s list, but I would advise you to read and consider these two articles:
۰ Deb Shindler’s 10 reasons I’m dumping my iPad for a Galaxy Tab
۰ And my I weigh in on the iPad

* Expand Your Brain Reading reco: Online Fraud – How to avoid being a participant…

* General Purpose reco: Please remember — we are now in prime Cybercrime Season. Let’s be careful and cautious out there.

* Just Because It’s Saturday reco(s):
۰ Tech Republic is a site Über Geeks and other “power users” should be aware of, and very little is “members only”.. take a peek and see what I mean, here.
۰ Saturday? Duct Tape! (A ‘fun’ post of mine..)
۰ Recent Reports Outline Our Lack Of Security

And now a video:

* Quote of the week:What seems like the right thing to do could also be the hardest thing you have ever done in your life.”

Let’s do the Right Thing, people.

[note: We here at T4E Headquarters (me, myself, and I) use “geek” as a compliment.]
