Default What Did You Get For Christmas This Year?

My gifts came this year a bit early in the form of a <a href="http://hansberry.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/OurBikes" target="_blank">brace of Harley Davidsons</a> for me and the misses (after the break). The kids got some new gadgets though, some of which haven't been unwrapped yet, so I'll hold off on the details for now.

Unfortunately no gadgets

I asked for a Zune HD and even said I'd settle for an iPod Touch, but my wife felt I didn't need either...

So I got a new wallet, some nice clothes, and my gadget lust is left unfufilled for another year.

Default What I Got for Christmas

I got a Touch Pro 2 and in spite of all the marvelous reviews I read about it, I am not impressed. In fact, I'm going back to my Touch Pro 1. The only thing I liked about it was the tilt keyboard.

Things I hated:

1. No D pad
2. Clicking on items was slow and sometimes needed repeated taps.
3. When I went into "settings" and then "all settings" I never did find where to set up a password or enter owner information.

I thought the transiton would be a breeze but I found it to frustrating to try and navigate and set it up like my Touch Pro 1.

It was described as chunky, but I felt it had a slim feel and felt good in hand.

I'm thouroughly convinced that "new" is not always "best."

Canon Rebel. But the absolute best thing I got was a handmade version of Jayne's Cunning Hat from Firefly!

A custom-made t-shirt from my wife with a picture of a pig on it and all the cuts of pork written out in spanish. Awesome.

Early present was a Digital Storm Win 7 - 3.3 quad core with a gts 250 card
So with that we got the game Avatar for the pc (my son and I love the movie and the game)
An eye-fi card for my digital camera
A pair of Asolo FSN 95 hiking boots (love them)

Nope, the XS. This is my first foray into the DSLR arena.
