This season I'm replacing my Toshiba laptop with the Microsoft Surface RT and my HTC HD7 with the Nokia Lumia 920. I'm a big Windows fan. If the PPI were higher on the Surface, somebody else would be getting my Kindle Keyboard for Christmas themselves!

As we head into the darker nights of winter, a front-lit ereader is becoming more attractive to me..... but as long as my Kindle 3 keeps working, I'll probably be waiting until sometime next year to buy either a Kindle PW or Kobo Glo. So nothing for me.

I have to replace my Windows XP box which is obsolete and making funny noises so I am getting an Ultrabook. Also my Android phone is getting long in the tooth and exhibiting some annoying bugs.

Thanks. Will check it out

I said I wasn't going to buy something, and then I decided maybe I'd get a new e-ink Kindle, and I bought a refurb Nook Color for my younger kid.

I love opening presents but can't see the point in waiting to use something just because it's not Christmas yet. So, I usually don't, and then I have nothing to open on Christmas day. Oh well...

I plan to buy my husband an iPad mini (he has a Kindle Fire that he hardly ever uses)--and I'm hoping he buys me an iPod.

I just found that when I moved my Roku from the TV in my kitchen to the TV in my bedroom. We have a wall unit A/C just to make the bedroom extra cold without making the entire house too cold. When it's on, it's hard to hear the TV without blasting it, and well... that defeats the purpose of watching a little tv before falling to sleep. So I keep it at a normal level and turn on the CC. It's way more relaxing.

I started using bluetooth receiver w/ sound isolating headphones whenever I was doing dishes, or vacuuming and watching TV. I don't like loud noises and this way I eliminate the bad sound, and don't have the blast the good sound, just to hear it. I have Sony transmitter/receiver that I hook up to my TVs, then use a bluetooth receiver and my fav. earbuds to listen.
