Why not get someone Blu-ray and HD-DVD's??? They would WANT THEM!!!

@1 i hope you're being sarcastic... LINUX FTMFW!!

Anyways, almost all of these items except for a few weren't really geeky don't cha think? Some of them that are on there shouldn't even be on there. Perfect example, BluRay's and HDDVD's... And also... those USB devices are great :( I even asked for some for christmas... I already have a USB powered desklamp(i must say it gave me space for my N64 that's over here now, since I got a new HDTV that I can use for my TV, PS3, and now N64!!:P So yeah... those USB powered devices are quite useful!
