Christmas Gift Ideas 2010: Techie Toys

It is time for my annual posting of the latest in technology gadgets for Christmas. So, let’s get the shopping started.

The XBox 360 Kinect is receiving big buzz this year due to the ability to play games with no controller. Sounds fun to me. Cost is ranging in the $299. Great way to get up and moving during the long winter!

Read, read, read. Hot tickets are the electronic book readers. Amazon has the Kindle ranging from $139-189. Barnes and Noble is sporting the Nook from $149-199. Perfect for the person on the go.
You knew I would include the iPad. Yes, it is gaining popularity all the time. You know, they’ve got an App for that. Prices start at $499. It does everything and folks love the touch technology.

 For those who just can’t give up writing with a pencil… the Boogie Board by Amazon may be for you. It looks like a portable chalkboard and has a stylus to write. The cost is $45 and it is like having a digital notepad with you, but you write instead of type.

Watch your favorite shows. Search the Internet. Find an App… all on Google TV. Logitech Revue works with your computer and tv to provide you access to the Web on your television. Your Smart Phone can work as a remote. The cost is $299.

For all the Paula Deen wannabe’s Here is the Digital Recipe Reader. I gotta say, I am pretty stoked about this one myself. It stores your recipes, gives you access to more recipes, has a timer, as a conversion chart feature and information for alternate ingredients. It is kitchen safe also. Right now it is $199.99 on most online sites. Definitely one to consider!
