There’s less than a month to go before Christmas arrives, which, for those of us who celebrate it, means spending time with family and friends, eating and drinking too much, and exchanging gifts. If you do give and receive presents at this time of year, I would hope you’ve already written out your list. Unless you want to force your loved ones to go out shopping on Christmas Eve.
We’re not interested in how many pairs of socks you want, or which celebrity fragrance you desire. Instead we want to know which gadgets you’re hoping to receive for Christmas this year. Those who don’t celebrate Christmas are not excluded from this discussion. Just let us know which gadgets are on your wishlist at the moment. whether you’re hoping someone else will buy them for you or whether you’re looking to buy them for yourself.
This Week’s Question…
What Gadgets Are On Your Christmas List?
Black Friday has already come and gone, with the U.S. and other countries kicking off the holiday season with a massive blowout of spectacular savings and carnivorous consumerism. Whether you go shopping on Black Friday or not you’re invited to vote in the poll concerning this epic day for bricks-and-mortar retailers.
Now that we’re in the holiday season and the number of shopping days to Christmas is declining fast, we want to know what gadget or gadgets are at the top of your list. I cannot promise that revealing your innermost desires means you’ll end up receiving said gadget, but you never know who is reading MakeUseOf, and perhaps someone you know will take the hint.
The range of gadgets you could ask for is vast. Would you like a new Windows 8 computer or a better-than-ever Mac? Does Apple feature heavily on your list, with the latest iPad or iPhone calling out to you? How about a Wii U from Nintendo, or do you have your eye on a Raspberry Pi? How about a new television, which seem to be getting larger, smarter, and clearer with every month that passes?
You can even go off the well-trodden path and tell us about a gadget that isn’t as mainstream as those mentioned above. As long as the gadget or gadgets you mention are actually on your wishlist — and I will be asking for proof — then we’d like to hear from you. Feel free to embellish your answer with the reasoning behind your choice of gadget. And perhaps tell us what the likelihood is that you’ll receive one before the end of 2012.
All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week where we will detail what You Told Us. One reader will be chosen for the coveted Comment Of The Week, getting their name up in lights, the respect of other readers, and 150 MakeUseOf points to use for MakeUseOf Rewards. What more motivation than that do you need to respond?
We Ask You is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. The questions asked are usually open-ended and likely to necessitate a discussion. Some are opinion-based, while others see you sharing tips and advice, or advocating tools and apps to fellow MakeUseOf Readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
