14 Must-Have Gadgets for the Geek in Your Life


Here’s a link to my 2012 list

Let’s face it. For many of my readers I am the geek in their life.

I’m the nerdy friend you tell your IT guy about when you don’t know what else to talk about because you want to talk about the latest political news about Herman Cain or what happened on SNL and all he is knowledgeable about is Leo Laporte’s ugly shirt in his last episode of This Week in Tech.

You don’t even know who Leo Laporte is. And that’s OK.

So what do geeks want for Christmas? What are the things that will make us shout “sleigh ride” on December 25th? I’m glad you asked. Here’s my list of 14 geek toys that I will happily tweet about when the UPS man drops them off.

    Great post. Thanks for the ideas for me and a few other geeks I know. The table dolly is probably the coolest idea, though I don’t do enough videos to make it worth it.

      I tried to have some realistic ones in there, cost wise. I think 3-4 are under $15. What would you add?
