How was your Christmas? Did you get what you wanted/wished/hoped for this year? I got that and them some! Hubby spoiled me rotten and I think I must have been a very good girl this year. Did you receive any kind of gizmo or gadget this year or do you just not do the electronics thing for one reason or another? Here at our house we love all electronics and tend to ask for at least one each at Christmas & sometimes we get more!
This year my BIG wish was for the 27-inch desktop iMac. My Gateway laptop that I’ve had for a few years was starting to act funny this year and it is not it’s normal self, although still functions, not sure for how much longer. I do a lot with photo’s & web design among other things. We’ve talked about a Mac for a while but held back for a few reasons in the past such as money & me being accustomed to Windows PC’s.
I did get it for Christmas! I love it. Although a little bit of a challenge, I am always up for those and love to learn. Here I am opening it on Christmas morning!
I really am enjoying it! Like I said, very different for me since I’ve been a Windows kinda gal for a LONG time. I am sure it will soon be second nature to me! Do you own an iMac? What do you love about it or any Mac?
When I first heard about Amazon coming out with a new Kindle, the Kindle Touch I did not put much thought into it and wrote it off as something not of interest to me. I’ve upgraded every time a new one has come out for various reasons and because I wanted to. The last upgrade was a need though because I wanted the 3G as well as Wifi being & living overseas and I do not regret that. I ended up falling in-love with it and the idea of a touch screen and since I own and love my iPad & iPod Touch, I knew it would be something I would take to easily. Here I am after opening the package on Christmas!
I love it and have already registered it, all my books are on there and a new 1st book to read on it this weekend! I love Touch technology. I take no issue with it having no back light. It is meant to be an ereader. Paper books don’t come with a built in light either folks! I like using my ereader as just that…an ereader!
My next electronic gift was something I had no idea at all I was going to get. Did not even talk about wanting it/getting it for Christmas. I am thrilled though because I did want it but did not voice it to hubby! We talked about how much fun it could/would be & we tried it out at a Target before we moved to Japan. The Nintendo 3DS! Yes, I love video gaming of all sorts from the computer to PC to consoles and handheld ones! It really is cool, you should check it out! Here I am, really surprised!
Such fun gifts!
Daniel asked for what I consider an interesting gift this year. A shortwave Transceiver. He has been wanting one for a few years but really really wanted it this year, so I got it for him and he is happy!
