2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Techy

Dec 18, 2012

Sometimes it can be hard to find the right gift, especially for tech enthusiasts who often go out and get everything for themselves before you can even ask what they want for Christmas! Here are some techy gift ideas, at various price ranges to suit your need.

Avengers DVD

The feel good action movie this summer was definitely The Avengers. The movie pleased the old geek crowd while also make new fans. Also, there is nothing more techy than Ironman's awesome suit!

Wii U

It's not every year that we a new video game console. The last one was the PlayStation 3, which came out in 2006! The Wii U kicks off a new generation of gaming with a cool gamepad that has a built-in touch screen that you can use to play certain games without a TV! It doesn't hurt that there are lots of great games already out for it, including Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendo Land.

Digital Camera

Cameras are one of those electronic devices that keep getting better with each passing year. Almost anyone could do with an upgrade. For under $100, you can pick up a Canon Powershot A2300 or A800, which are some of the better point and shoot cameras at that price range. If you are willing to spend more, take a look at the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14, which gives you the best bang for buck.

eReader

If there is one thing that techies love to do, it's read and browse the internet. The Nook HD and the Kindle Fire HD are the newest eReaders on the market and they will let you do both. The Nook HD also lets you watch videos while the Kindle Fire HD has great Bluetooth support.

iPad Mini

As the newest device coming out of the Apple labs, every techy is dying to get their hands on the iPad Mini. This tablet can do everything that the iPad can, but is smaller and more convenient to carry around.

Explanation: Hoshi was best friends with the moon girl, Sina who secretly loved him but they drifted apart when Hoshi met Dimitre, a Russian boy. He hung out with Dimitre more and they both fell in love with each other. However, Sina was jealous and so she got Cira, the sun girl, who was in love with Dimitre to distract him and hang out with him. Dimitre was too kind to reject her so he just hung out with her. In the shadows, Sina was bullying and threatening Hoshi not to meet with Dimitre because if he did she would hurt Dimitre. One day Hoshi couldn't handle it and so he ran to find Dimitre after school. He saw Dimitre and went towards him only to get hit by a car. Dimitre saw Hoshi lying on the floor and rushed towards him and hugged him while Hoshi slowly died in his arms. Dimitre never got over his death after that point.

There once was a boy named Hoshi. Just like his name his smile was as bright as the stars in the sky. One day he met another boy who's eyes were a mixture of the aqua ocean and green land, Earth. His name was Dimitre and he came from a far away land. They fell hard for each other. Their love stronger than anything in the galaxy. The star left the moon's side to join hands with the earth in their journey of love. But a girl carrying a name that meant the moon felt jealous. Jealous of the stars love for the Earth. She wanted to make it so that Hoshi could never meet Dimitre again, and with the help of another girl with her sun-kissed hair, the star could never see the Earth. The sun would blind the Earth so much that he couldn't see Hoshi who would shine brightly with teary eyes, and then when the sun would go to sleep so did the Earth, and only the stars would feel pain. Months went by and Hoshi's heart only broke harder and harder until a plan popped in his brain. The star, lost and all alone, cut off the wings that allowed him to shine and he fell out of the sky with hot fiery pain. Dimitre saw Hoshi in his hurt and painful state and embraced him. They could finally be together. Only for a brief moment, until Hoshi could feel himself slip into a deep sleep wrapped in Dimitre's arms. The star had gone out, and had left a gaping hole in the Earth's heart that could never be filled.

I appreciate it, but that doesn't help my conscience.  To me, you're practically saying "if one of us dies, that's okay because there are still plenty of other humans all around the world".  I don't put other animals above us, of course, but they still exist.  Anyway, good day.  Enjoy this egg's before  [s:p/1n9v] and after  [s:p/1n7e] because I'm not sure how to say "good day" without sounding sarcastic.

That's because of our own human nature. We often value ourselves more than anyone else. Everybody affects everybody indirectly. People value progress over everything. One day the world will come crashing down, and with this crumbling and twisted society with it. Want to make a difference? Well, it's not too late to start.

I really hate how society is built. I really hate how unaccepting people are and how we have gotten this far due to sacrifices and inflicting pain on others. Why do we do this to our own kind? ​We are just destroying ourselves because we are unable to understand why some people do what they do. Why can't we just accept people for how they are? They're heart and their soul. I know the world can't be perfect but honestly right now the world isn't okay. Of course I'm just a kid so whatever I say won't matter but anyways that's just what has been on my mind lately :)
