Dreaming of Gadgets…

I love toys and gadgets and every once in a while I like to get my wishlist down on paper. So, all this week I went about writing down my top 10. I’m sorry I can’t help it…I love these kind of lists.

I also sent out the bat signal in my social network to see what everyone else wanted. Here you go:

  1. Slingbox may be the best invention ever. I use it on my Q every day and love it when I am traveling abroad.

    Do you have a preference between HD-DVD or Blu Ray? Personally I think I might just stick to aiming for an upscaling DVD player for now and wait out the war.
