Well, have a look at your local store and you can’t miss that it is Christmas time. It’s the biggest gift buying season so I have prepared a list of techy goodies for you. Well these aren’t goodies more like baddies – stuff I couldn’t imagine anyone would want. (I know – I only have six bits of crap – I am sure you can add another four in the comments 🙂 ) . But seriously, just buy some gift cards for your family and friends, it’s easy and they will love them.
G-Mouse: The G-Mouse is the ultimate gadget for all those who want to add a little fun to their boring life. You can play your favourite games, surf the net or use all your office applications with the G-Mouse computer gun shaped mouse. Crap!
PC EZ-Bake Oven: Now the computer savvy among us can relive the fun of having your very own personal mini-oven with the PC Ez-Bake oven! It fits in a 5 1/4″ drive bay and plugs right into your power supply with the included Molex connector. Also included is “PC Ez-Cook”, the open-source oven controller software with a fuzzy-logic cooking control system to precisely measure the doneness of your cake or cookie. Crap!
Electronic Rock Paper Scissors: Based upon the traditional “rock, paper, scissors” game, this electronic version will randomly display one of four pre-set patterns. It’s an ideal gift for the extremely lazy or indecisive. Crap!
USB fan cooled seat cushion: Just what people need on hot Summer days (well, Christmas time is Summer over here in Australia) … a USB powered, fan cooled seat cushion. USB powered anything is getting to new heights (or lows) with this I think. Looks like it’s the new 2007 model – that’s a bonus! Crap!
USB pole dancer: The USB pole dancer is designed to be plugged into any pc USB port, of course, and comes complete with her own silver pole to dance around, as well as multi-coloured lights and disco music to “recreate an authentic nightclub atmosphere”. Once she is switched on she goes through a gyrating routine with the help of a pre-installed backing track. Just lovely. Crap!
Bad breath meter: Measure how stinky someones breath is. What ever you do don’t give this as a present – it may give the person a hint to take some mints butI guarantee you won’t be on the receiving end of a thank you kiss – maybe a slap on the face but not a kiss. Crap!
