TiPb asks: What tech gift do you want for the holidays?

iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox Kinnect, PlayStation Move, Jambox, Nexus S, MacBook Air -- there seems to be so much wonderful tech out there that I am finding it increasingly difficult to figure out what I would really like to receive this holiday season!

What type of tech gifts are you hoping to find under the tree? Is there something cool you really want from that someone special in your life? Help me out, TiPb community, and let me know what you want!

TiPb asks: What tech gift do you want for the holidays?


A new camera and Google willing a free CR48..maybe some kind of ihome alarm clock. There are too many options for them, its hard to pick which I like best.

I need an awesome speaker dock for my ipad. Nothing better than watching my ipad while cooking and cleaning in the kitchen.

I want Georgia for Christmas, failing that HP e-print printer for Air-Print (which I'm getting!) and some new SLR lenses!

Ah, I would like Magic Piano. And a device upon which to play it. Please. :) Oh, and iPhone Live on one of my nights off...

I'd like a MacBook Pro, but I'm not getting that. I'd also like an AppleTV, but I'm not getting that. I used up my Christmas wish on the iPhone 4.

Google tv... So I can surf the web in bed and watch tv at the same time. I love my new apple tv, but it's missing a lot of features.
I want an iPad... But I'm going to wait until iPad 2. I'm afraid 256ram is a bottleneck for what I want to use it for.

Actually, I have my fill for this calendar year of tech items. Thus far, I have upgraded to an iPhone 4, bought an iPad, ATV, and a brand spankin' new iMac 21.5.
The one semi-relative tech gift (which should have already shipped) that I am waiting for is the Isotoner SmarTgloves so I can use my iPhone in the cold.

My dad already told me he got me a Kindle, and I'm buying myself a new MacBook haha.

New iMac, gift card for an iPad 2, and a Synology Disk Station. That's it. I don't think this is too much to ask for.

All I want is to be alive again on Earth writing songs and playing for my fans. One Love.
Georgia would be nice too, but ain't gonna happen.

An iPad with a 1920x1440 pixel display, 64 GB + of storage, and the superfast guts and superefficient battery to power it all.

A simple unteathered 4.2 jailbreak is all I really need. Got an iPhone and an iPad but they feel handicapped.

I got a Nokia N8 last week and it is a perfect companion to my iPhone 4. I can't believe you would list the Nexus 2 as a tech gift.

I would like a new HP printer, so I can airprint. A new MacBook Air would be great also. Maybe an Apple TV not sure what I'll use it for, but it seems Kewl. And a new camera the Canon SD1400. I like the compactness of it. I got my iPhone 4, and my iPad. I would also like some gift certificates for iTunes. And a jailbreak for 4.2 wouldn't be bad either.

I'd love an iPad but can't afford one. I was hoping to win the one ye had up for grabs a few weeks back but obviously didn't :( Happy Christmas everyone at Tipb.com :D

I avoided gadgets for the first time in years (got a puppy this week, which is more rewarding and more work), but in a weird set of circumstances, it will be our most gadgety Xmas ever, as it looks like a kindle, a wifi ipad, and an AppleTV are all making it to our tree. The kids and I love the puppy, but I can't help a nerdy little happydance. :D

Yellow Santa (DHL) is going to bring me Photoshop Elemnts 9 + Premiere Elements 9. For the other stuff, hopefully familly will also gift me Inception and Pillars Of The Earth, both on DVD. iTunes gift cards are also allways appreciated.
Allreaddy got my fair share of tech this year with an iMac 27", software for it (Office 2011, iLife 11, etc, etc), an iPod Touch 32GB and a new camera.

I'd love a new Macbook Pro but won't be getting it anytime soon because I've been told giving is better than receiving :(

Great post! I myself think that finding the right gift can sometimes be difficult. What I think is that people tend to like unique gifts that are hard to find and not sold in stores. People like the gifts more this way since they cannot be replaced. I have been buying a few items from www.thinkfuntoys.com and giving it away to friends and family. They all love it. There are a few quite interesting tech items there. The stuff there are pretty cheap and unique and they deliver fast.
