Weekend Open Forum: What's on your Christmas wish list?

By on November 9, 2012, 6:30 PM

The holiday season is fast approaching and chances are some of you are already scrambling to find the perfect gift for that special person in your life -- including yourselves, of course. As usual, we’ll have our annual holiday gift guide ready in the next few days to ease the process, but in the meantime how about we pick your collective brain for some ideas we might be overlooking?

This week we’d like to hear about what’s on your personal Christmas wish list -- whether that’s an upgrade for your trustworthy desktop, a brand new tablet, or any other of today's coolest gadgets and electronics. If expensive gift giving is not on your agenda we’d still love to know about any special plans you have for the festivities.

I can’t say I have set my mind on a particular item but perhaps I'll get an audio receiver or a Boxee-like media streamer for the new place I just moved into.

I'd like my medical bills paid for. I was shot recently in the chest by a gunman and don't have any insurance. Besides that I'd take all the parts for me to assemble a new computer.

The new 1Gbps wireless router, 27 inch ASUS or Acer 3D monitor or HP 30 inch at 2560 x 1600. Why can't they make a 30 inch 3D monitor with 2560 x 1600 resolution and Guild Wars 2.

After buying a 42" LED I'm eying up a new TV stand with a new amp and speaker set to go with it.

Hopefully I'm not on the naughty list this year

I want to buy myself a new laptop this holiday season. Been looking long and hard at a lenovo y580. Too bad the deal I wanted showed up but was sold out in a few hours before I ever saw it. It was $800 for a win 7 clearance y580 with ivy bridge I7, 1080P, 8gb ram, 660m 2 gb graphics, and an msata mssd. I cried.

Me? very simple, but impossible..

I hope Apple stop suing Samsung or other company

2013 Carrera 4S. That's probably not going to happen, so I'd be happy to settle for a 2TB external drive to store my videos on.

Am sorry but I find the first part of your comment to be funny. I don't want to give the impression that am not sympathetic regarding your circumstances but That's what those Movie goers that were shot at during the Batman opening In Aurora,Colo are facing !

It's sad that we think and believe that that so-called INSURANCE, protects us from the stupidity of others.

Get well and wish you a Merry Christmas !

Sadly, It seems Obama is now the New Santa Claus for many except me !

I still think he's much like the Pied Piper or Yosemite Sam.

Hopefully, I'll DIE before he completes his 2nd term.

Be able to purchase Google Nexus 4 "AT" $299 or $349 plus taxes

Nexus 7 maybe as I've already had BlackBerry Playbook tablet which I'm more than happy with it.

Consider getting an Acer Liquid Glow out of curiosity, after all the praising from reviewers everywhere. Not that I need another smartphone though.

You do know we pay a lot more tax and the wait for our "free" healthcare is 6 - 9 hours for an emergency and 9 - 12 months for surgery.

Yeah, I recently heard about the extra tax, but maybe they don't they care about that if Obama is such a nightmare for them :P
