Happy Holidays from 40Tech — and the Star Wars Cat

Happy Holidays

It’s that time again, folks. A time of laughter, a time of cheer — a time of the gifting and receipt of fun tech toys. Oddly, I don’t have any on my list this year. I just want a toolbox. Well… Skyrim wouldn’t hurt, either. And a new computer. Maybe an iPad 2 upgrade — or maybe for my PS3 60GB to stop with the stupid yellow light of death stuff. Yeah, I’d like that one for sure.

Enough about me, though. What fun tech toys do you hope for this holiday season? What do you plan on gifting? Sky’s the limit here — and no tech is too small, either. If you want to give or get a personalized, full-sized Transformer, that’s cool. If you have your heart set on an archaic (but still awesome) calculator watch, hey, who am I to judge? It’s all gravy, here on 40Tech, so have at it!

In the meantime, I leave you with this incredibly hilarious image. It has almost nothing to do with tech, has everything to do with geek awesome, and if it doesn’t make you smile through the also-inevitable holiday stress, then… well… I got nothin’.

Happy holidays — whatever they may mean to you! And please… be safe.

  1. Love it! Happy Holidays Bobby & 40Tech gang.

  2. Interestingly, I never give or receive any tech gifts. Of course, most of my family is fairly tech-adverse, so that makes some sense.

    As long as I get Ron Shandler’s Baseball Forecaster, I’ll be happy :)

    Great cat photo.
