Techies And Their Holiday Gadgets

from the what-are-you-getting? dept

CNET’s Tech Republic went out and asked a bunch of techies what they were going to give or were hoping to get for the holidays as gifts. Not surprisingly, things like PCs, digital cameras, PDAs, DVD players, CD writers, and MP3 players show up on the various lists. One of the more interesting findings: only executives were interested in getting an Xbox. I have no idea what that means. Also, about 30% of the responses said they were “unsure” what they would get people. These are probably the true geeks because either (1) they don’t plan on getting anyone anything for the holidays or (2) buy for the holidays now?!? There’s still plenty of time!

Cuz they’re wonks! hehehe.

Side note, not that I want the XBox to fail, I can’t wait till it comes out and experiences its’ first fit of crashes – mostly just because it always happens! And its’ ammusing.

Like when they tried convert the HotMail servers after they aquired them.

Like the recent Stability marketing campaign and their own site servers crashing in the same week.

Like when…
