Cool PC Geek gift ideas for Christmas

In the past couple of days a few new PC products have been appearing on the shelf just in time for Christmas. If you are wondering what to buy that computer geek in your life then below are a few gift ideas:

Bamboo Input Device

This is a really good way to touch enabled you desktop computer with out having to replace your monitor. I recently bought a Dell 21.5” Multi-touch monitor and while the screen it self is very nice having a touch interface on a traditional sit down desktop computer is just not very practical as you quicker get tired arms and you are forever pressing in the wrong sport because you can see where you are touching because your finger in are in the way. Well i reckon this is a much better (and cheaper way) to touchify your computer… The Bamboo Touch does supports Windows 7 but also support Vista and XP so this should please pretty much any Windows PC user. However to really take advantage of the touch input Windows 7 is recommended.

Also this is a limited time offer so definitely buy it soon as they have just stopped selling it in the USA so i expect this offer will only last until January at the latest.

    Instead of using a Bamboo Touch why not just use a mouse to interface with your computer? It’s old fashioned and been around for ages but it still pretty good :)Like the idea of the HD webcam. That’s pretty cool!"NOT a DISCLAIMER"? It looks like a disclaimer to me.

    Ah… You can use gestures on the touch pad so that things like kenetic scrolling and pinch to zoom will work… As for the Disclaimer… you are right… only thing to disclaim is that i have nothing to disclaim…
