Quote of the Day - I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up - they have no holidays.
With a caveat or two, here goes. All right, not so fast. Here are the caveats. I'm a tech head. A regular gadget freak. So, that means I already have some toys.
Therefore, this list won't include those toys. But then again, if you're reading this, you probably have most of them too, so you can be a bit voyeuristic.
My other caveat is that I want to put things on my list that I've seen in the movies but haven't been invented yet. You know, like that holographic projection thing that R2D2 sported in Star Wars.
Earth to Craig. Come back, please.
All right, here it is:
A Projection keyboard for my Pocket PC.
Video conferencing for my law firm's conference room. OK, this one isn't realistic. It's almost $20,000. But I can still lust after it, can't I?
An external backup hard drive. Much more realistic, and much more practical.
Now here's one that's just plain cool, but I don't necessarily need (who's into spying?): a wireless video camera and microphone, packed into a pen.
And just in case you wanted to make sure you passed along your high-tech genes to your offspring, they've updated Etch-a-sketch, so your kids won't be left without at least one toy that requires batteries.
A 1 gig flash drive, preferably in a pen.
A good underwater digital camera.
An iRiver MP3 player.
Shure headphones, but with a microphone hooked into them, too.
Finally, a wireless remote.
Some are expensive, and some are cheap. But it all depends on how you want to spend your money (take the "Facilities Tour").
