Matrix Group’s Gift List for the Techies In Your Life

Techie opening a giftIt’s the holiday season and if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the techie in your life, have no fear. I polled the Matrix Group staff and they came through with these terrific suggestions:

  • Mini USB Monitor – Need a little more real estate on your monitor? You’ll love these mini monitors.
  • Lego Death Star – If you have a little one who loves Legos and you love Star Wars, you’ll enjoy making the Death Star together.
  • Our Network Administrators say that NetBooks are super hot this season.  NetBooks are a class of laptops that are super small, lightweight and inexpensive.  You can get them from Dell, Acer, HP and Sony.
  • WikiReader – This little device puts the 3 million+ articles from Wikipedia in the palm of your hand, along with regular updates.
  • PS3 Rock Band Precision Bass – If you love Rock Band, you’ll love this upgraded bass.
  • The Geek Handbook – This handy little reference is a great user guide and documentation for the geek in your life.
  • A Slashdot Cap – If you get the reference, you’ll love this cap. If you don’t, don’t worry about it.
  • HD Flipcams – It was bound to happen. Now you can take HD videos with a teeny device.
  • Portable Solar Charger – This universal charger will keep your portable electronics charged anywhere there’s sun. So you can go camping and still keep your phone and iPod fully charged. Sweet!
  • Simon Game – This is a through-hole soldering kit for the true geek in your life who needs a little soldering practice.
  • Dragon Age – This is the latest video game from Bioware and it is hot, hot, hot.

  1. My Mom, who is super non-techie, has a netbook and she LOVES it. She’s a professor, and she uses it to run her slideshows for each lecture. It’s great that she doesn’t have to lug a huge laptop around just to hook up to a projector. It also has wireless, and she loves how little it is that she can be connected anywhere in the house, whereas with a laptop she feels the need to be near a desk or table.

    One caveat – the screen is so short, that some software installers / websites have action buttons that fall BELOW the bottom of the screen, making the action item unclickable. Ooops!

  2. Even the non-techies will love a USB Flash Drive. Prices are plummeting and you can’t beat the convenience. 4GB for $10 or even cheaper. Easy to carry documents around to meetings, for display on a conference room computer, good for getting photos at their original high resolution from a family gathering while still at the gathering, etc. Just a good piece of equipment to have on your keychain.
