Surely everybody likes receiving gifts. Sadly, many of us don’t receive gifts very often, meaning those we do receive have extra meaning to them. It’s these extra special gifts we’re interested in hearing about in this week’s We Ask You. Assuming, of course, they’re gifts related to technology.
Gratitude For The Greatest Gifts Given
We want to know, What’s The Best Tech-Related Gift You Have Received? It doesn’t matter what the occasion was, as long as you were given something as a gift, it was related to technology in some way, and you were so happy that you remember the occasion to this day.
As you may have already noticed, it’s the holidays in some parts of the world right now. People are therefore preparing to exchange gifts with the people they love unconditionally, mildly like, and (in the the case of co-workers) openly despise. But we have readers from all around the world, so this question is open to everybody.
Whether you received an Atari 800XL computer on your fifth birthday, or a Game Boy for Christmas 1990, we want to hear the details. Perhaps a loved one ignored the tradition of buying flowers or chocolate for Valentine’s Day and instead recognized your geekiness by giving you an iPod. If so, that’s an anecdote worth sharing with the rest of the MakeUseOf readership.
Perhaps, like the slightly overexcited
spawn of Satan child in the video embedded below, you were given a Nintendo 64 as a gift. You know, back when Nintendo consoles were the first choice on wishlists rather than the booby prize bought purely because parents are too ignorant to know anyone else actually makes games consoles.
Whatever tech-related gift you vividly remember receiving, we want to hear all about it. Simply tell us what the gift was, the circumstances under which you received it, and why the memory has stuck with you through the years. We will then use your comments as the basis for an article published on MakeUseOf next week.
We Need You!
All comments will be read and most will be replied to, before the responses are turned into a full article detailing your responses to the question. Those readers providing the best comments will thanked by name, receiving our extreme and everlasting gratitude for their efforts.
We Ask You is a column dedicated to crowdsourcing the wisdom of MakeUseOf readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
