Dear Santa...Random Gadgets Wishlist
Further to my note this past Saturday (thanks for the chocolate BTW), following is the addendum to the list:
- One get out of Facebook free forever card
- A comments or suggestions box tied to home addresses or license plates that allows you to leave comments like “please move your sprinkler off the sidewalk”, “nice Christmas lights” or “nice driving…”
- An auto white paper function that allows me to type in a thesis and click “write paper” - based on past thoughts, random notes, charts and files on my hard drive and blackberry
- A spam sensor that acts as a taser when detected on my blog comments rendering spammers’ fingers paralyzed for 12 hours (If these are out of stock, a reverse look up on spam plug-in would do)
- An on/off switch that allows me to disappear completely online or stream me like I’m Vegas on good days (mobile access please)
- A UPC scanning device that manages ingredient inventory by weight in my fridge and pantry and streams up to my recipe database as promised in 1999 (for blackberry please) - OR a Mac fridge
- One-week pass that allows me to think up a start-up, build it, launch it and live it for one year (in compressed time) within 7 days so that I can see if it works out.
- A time machine – doesn’t have to be the most expensive, will settle for middle range but please, please make it come assembled.
- Unlimited device account from my carrier that gives me unlimited toys tied to one account that I can log into and use for different events/purposes ie. iPhone for fun, Blackberry Bold while working, Pearl Flip for cocktail dresses etc.
- One of those camera do-hickies that takes pictures of people and auto-references them to LinkedIn, Facebook and MySpace profiles. Just because it can...
- A one-year subscription to HELLO! Facebook that shows profiles and updates in big glossy format...I miss print
Stocking Stuffer suggestions:
- Heated driveway (solar powered of course)
- A water cooler in my car’s dashboard
- Peace on earth
