Rent Test Equipment
Screw the body lotions and Christmas socks -- I want some real toys. Nothing excites me more than looking through the ads in the morning paper at what new electronics I can add to my Christmas list. I may never receive any of those wonderful technie wonders, but it's always cool to see what the new year is able to offer. Like the GPS navigation systems and digital photo frames of years past, this year brings tiny netbooks and print to digital photo scanners to the top of everyone's must-have radar. Hopefully Santa thinks you've been good this year, because with gadgets this cool, no manicure or votive set would make you happy after seeing these impressive devices.

Finally -- an alarm clock for the sleeper who really doesn't want to get up. Since my alarm isn't within arm's reach, I always have to physically haul myself out of bed every time I want to smack the snooze button! The techie braniacs at Moshi clearly had everyone's lazy-bum side in mind when they invented the Voice Control Alarm Clock. Now you can shut your alarm clock off (or set the time, or check the temperature, or even set your next alarm time) by simply telling it off -- with its trusty voice control technology. I'm kind of thinking this device is dangerous for those who sleep like the dead (or those who talk in their sleep), but it does sound awfully convenient for us anti-morning people!Price: $24.99Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Moshi Voice Control Alarm Clock to the Hive.
