Here are a few of my favorite things this year.  I love checking out the tech toys.  I spent a bit of time working on this list, so enjoy!

1. LaCie iamaKey Flash Drive


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love this durable, metal-housed flash drive  keychain. Not only is it essentially loseable, it’s tough enough to rattle around in my pocket all day long. Think about how awesome it would be to have this keychain.  I don’t know how many thumb drives I have lost in the past year. Available in 32 GB16 GB, and smaller on Amazon.

2. ION Audio IPA17 TAILGATER AM/FM Lightweight Speaker System for iPod

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I saw this speaker system at costco back in the summer and I am still kicking myself for not purchasing it.  The battery lasts for 8 hours…yes, 8 hours!  Here are more tech specs on it: Dock for iPod fits most docking models, Inputs for microphone and other audio sources, Built-in eight hour battery with level indicator, Heavy-duty construction with carry handle.  Perfect for days at the beach, or for a skateboard ministry or if you are outside.  Get it on Amazon!(the reviews are gold!)

 

3. Iomega SuperHero Backup and Charger for iPhone

Its better to be safe than sorry.  When I installed os5 I was sweating bullets.  What if I lost everything?  My iphone has all my info on it.  Why not back it up on a memory stick.  I also love the brushed aluminum look.  Get it on Amazon.

 

4. Griffin GC17116 WindowSeat Mobile HandsFree Car Kit

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I talk on my bluetooth head set all the time.  This device would be so handy.  It sticks on the glass of your car, and charges it all at the same. Here it is on Amazon.

 

5. ipad 

 

I would love an ipad.  You could do it all with this device.  You could study your Bible, set up a photo booth with it for an event, or take weekly attendance.  Here are some features that you already know about: Apple’s newest generation of iPads, 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology. 1 GHz dual-core Apple A5 custom-designed processor, Forward facing and rear facing cameras, Apple’s iOS 4 and access to Apple’s app store.  Again check it out on Amazon.

 

6. Batman Arkham City

 

I don’t play video games a lot anymore, but this is one game I want to play over Christmas.  The first game,Batman Arkham Asylum, was game of the year.  I still enjoy the odd video game.  Check it out on Amazon.

 

7. PanasonicLumix DMC-GF1 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One day I will use video’s on the site.  Until I get this camera I won’t be vloging.  I want it to look the best possible and this camera is so impressive.  I have seen videos of this in use and it is mind blowing.  Here are some of the features:

  • Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 aspherical lens
  • Capture 1280 x 720 HD video in AVCHD Lite format for longer recording time
  • Full-time Live View; new My Color mode
  • Capture images to SD/SDHC memory cards (not included)
  • Full-time Live View and new My Color mode
  • Elegant, compact design and it includes Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 aspherical lens
  • 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor , clear images even when taken at high ISO sensitivity

Check out the camera on Amazon.

 

8. Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 4/4S

Finding a great iphone case is a difficult thing.  I can’t believe how many junky cases are out there.  Here is one great case.  Keep your phone and your cards all in one place.  Check it on Amazon.

 

9. Wacom Cintiq 12WX 12-Inch Pen Display

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are serious about design you will need a wacom.  These are fun things to have.  Its worth the investment.  Here it is on Amazon.

 

10. Dwight Bobble Head

 

Every office would be complete with this bobble head.  For $20 it could be a great stocking stuffer.  Amazon.

 

What else would you add?
