My Gadgetriffic 2010!


Enough talk about death! Let's talk about toys!

Here is the short list of shit I'm going to be getting with my tax return in what I like to call Gadgetriffic 2010!

Nexus One (the Google phone) $180.oo for T-Mobile customers like me.


Just introduced today! I'm finally going to bite the bullet and get a 3G phone. I'm especially intrigued by the voice recognition and the integration of built in GPS with Google Maps. Just tell it where you want to go and using your current GPS position it will map out a route for you. Fucker will even show you the Google Maps street view of your destination when you get close. Email, Internet, 5 mega pixel camera, MP3 player, all kinds of shit. Rumor has it, you can even make phone calls with it! Fuckin', sweet! I'm gettin' one.

I originally just wanted a Blu-Ray DVD player, but my friends convinced me that I would get more digital bang for my buck with a PS3.

voice recognition doesn't work for me.it just keeps mocking me.good luck with your gadgets, to be honest the phone is the only one I'd go for.I suck at games and boxee doesn't seem very useful, I never find a need to move any content to a TV, I own a netflix roku box and it does what I need.

Whoa! Cliff is needing a phone and we're Tmobile. Only trouble is, he's not very techie. He'd probably get lost with that phone.
The Boxie box looks interesting, too.
