    I was just curious about what people are set to get for themselves or family and friends this christmas with all these shopping craze going on.

    In my family, we dont really do the gift exchange thing. Its more like buy what you want when you want, that way, there are no dissapointments. It works. We do however give gifts to friends and relatives.

    The entire family then gathers for the christmas dinner on christmas day and exchange cards.

    Anyways, my list is quite simple and i've done most of it.

    1. MBP (to replace my PB) (gotten)
    2. Bose in-ear headphones (to replace iPod earbuds) (on its way to me)

    Thats it. Actually no, there is one other one that *maybe* happening

    4. Treo 680 (to somewhat replace my 650). Someone made an offer for my treo that gets me a 680 in essence when included with a promo code. However this isnt final yet.

    I said this was the last but there's one final one.

    5. Next gen console. Still torn between an X360 or a Wii. Waiting for the Wii to debut in the UK before i make any decisions though. No PS3 though £470?, yeah not gonna happen.

    Thats it!

    What about you guys?

    I am in the same situation as you.I am really debating whether an XBOX 360 or a Wii or a PS3 would be better. Although, I am starting to lean toward XBOX 360. Wii is new, and there probably is bugs. X360 has been out for about a year, and they have fixed all the bugs. Of course, there is the aspect of it that it is Microsoft. :D

    All I want for Christmas is a new cell phone because my current one is slowly dying. It's been burned, drowned, and dropped 328327849023 times for 2 years.

    I'm hoping to get these:

    Wii
    Zelda: TP
    Madden '07
    Another game, not sure what though.
    Classic Controller

    -------

    But that's not it. :D I'm probably getting a refurb iMac whenever the C2D iMac refurbs come out.

    I've heard that starting in January, Nintendo in USA is giving out Wii Play with each wiimote you buy. So I'm not buying another wiimote until then.

    I'm finishing grad school on the first, it's my birthday on the sixth, and then it's Christmas...

    ...'tis the season to be greedy! :D

    I already bought myself the insert to my NorthFace jacket. I don't know why I have all of that gear living in Mississippi. It's only cold for about three weeks here.

    The wife and I are going to Cancun in February. That's a butt load of cash right there. I'm going sailing all day while we are there. Never sailed before, I can't wait. Never got a chance to visit iGary (yet).

    I want some Shure e2c's. I don' think that's gonna happen, though. The iPod headphones never have worked for me.

    A book on the Spanish Civil War.
    Maybe a camera connector for my iPod.

    That's it, really, that's all I really want. I see no point in going nuts on presents when I have most of what I need.

    I could do with some pillow speakers or a bedside stereo that'll connect to my iPod.

    I think a cell phone is not what you need if you dropped it 10,411 times per second continuously for 2 years.

    luv ya bunches! xoxoxo

    A raise

    so I can buy something nice with it, though it would probably all end up in my 401k anyway....
