I would ask for time away from all of the gadgets and noise. I am going to spend some time with my wife, some time in solitude ice fishing and some time in church comtemplating what is important this time of year.

Merry Christmas,
Scott

I thought about the Samsung watch/phone, but you have to have carry around the smart phone. At least that is what I understood. I just want the watch to work as a phone like they show in the commercials and not have to carry anything else around.

I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!

Sorry, had to be said.

Seriously though, my netbook just died, so I have been looking for a tablet as a replacement. If Santa saw his way clear to bring me a 256 GB Surface 2 Pro, with Power Cover and SQL 2012 Express and all the updates already installed, I would be a very happy nerd. Even without the software, I would be a pretty happy nerd with just the tablet and dock.

I want some reasonable winter temperatures. We have snow but it''s been to cold to ski(Around the -30C).

Other than that, I'm not a gadget person, but I would love a new turntable. One that plays at 33&1/3 consistently. Not the 25-40 range that I get with my current one. There's nothing like trying to play guitar along a record when the pitch keeps changing. :-P

I have a Raspberry Pi on my Christmas list.
I already have a bunch of Arduino stuff but wouldn't mind have some more random sensors or maybe a robot chassis and motors to go with it.

After holding out long enough, I'm finally going to be getting a Blu-Ray player. The studios have won. Crying

I love watching the bonus material that often comes with movies (behind the scenes, gag reels, etc.), but they have slowly been leaving them off of the DVD versions and only adding them to the Blu-Ray editions. So, I'm caving in, breaking down, giving up, and getting a Blu-Ray.....Sigh.

Maybe some kind of electrical shock device, like a tazer, I could use on the plane when the person in front of me decides to lean their seat back into my face. Or how about the airlines either give more room between seats or prevent them from reclining in the first place.

Well said, Scott! Enjoy!

Me - I too like to move away from the computer and phone which seem to follow me withersoever I go. More tools for the wood shop would be nice. Quiet time with family is always a blessing as well.

Merry Christmas to all!

David
