I’m on vacation from my day job until January 2nd. Yay! During my time off, I plan to work with Rob to implement some of the comments and ideas that you all gave me in The Gadgeteer turns 10 years old post. I will also be doing some shopping in order to spend some money before the end of the year, so that Uncle Sam won’t get it come tax day next April! So, I’m asking you guys for your help. Reply to this post with your ideas of products that you want to see me review here on The Gadgeteer or on my other review site Ukulele Review. Then on 12/27/07, I’ll pick a random winner to receive a Gadgeteer t-shirt and the Spire Endo courier laptop bag that I recently reviewed. Good luck and get posting :o)
I’m going to list your suggestions and comment on them here in the post…
Roomba – I actually bought one of these last winter and never got around to writing the review. So I gave it to a co-worker who has a larger house than I and will have a review very soon!
Forbidden LEGO – Can you elaborate?
Media center extender, wireless speakers, HD radio – I have an HD radio here now in my queue
Watcom Fun – I’ll think about this one
Asus EEE PC – On my list to order
Apple TV – I have and use one, but haven’t reviewed it yet. I’ll put it on the list
Nokia E90 – I’ve thought about this one, but can’t imagine using it as an actual phone given the size.
Vulcan Flipstart – I’m seriously considering this one
Samsung Upstage – I probably will not buy this one since I’m not a Sprint customer. I will try to get an eval though
Korg SP-250 – Nice keyboard. Probably not something I would buy to review though as it’s doesn’t quite fit the definition of a gadget
Julie – Hmmmmmm, I’m really afraid of the squeeze test ;o) Cute idea tho!
Fly Fusion pentop computer or Logitech’s IO2 – I have the Fly Fusion right here… Review soon
Zune (2nd gen) – Good idea!
3rd party mapping software for smartphones – Good idea for my contributing software reviewers
Amazon Kindle – Already reviewed
PLEO – I’m thinking about this one…
Nokia N810 – Considering this one too
Livescribe SmartPen – This would be a great one to do with the Fly Fusion pentop computer. It’s only pre-order right now though, but adding to my list.
Callpod Dragon bluetooth headset – Interesting design. Adding it to my list to consider
Sony PRS-505 – I’m no sure that there’s a big difference between the Sony Reader PRS-500 that we already reviewed and this new version. I’ll have to look into it
Windjammer folding messenger bike – Reviewing that sounds too much like exercise! ;o)
Sony Mylo – Kinda old to buy with my own cash…
