TechRepublic's 2011 Geek Gift Guide: 12 items for your holiday shopping list

Nintendo 3DS

TechRepublic Senior Editor Sonja Thompson is a self-proclaimed Nintendo DS junkie, so she jumped at the chance to review the Nintendo 3DS. In her review, she writes: "Perhaps I'm still a kid at heart, but the 3D capability - without having to wear special glasses - was very cool. The price point and portability also help make it an easy contender for one of the top handheld gaming devices on the market."

Be sure to take a look at Bill Detwiler's Nintendo 3DS teardown photo gallery.

That way they get to present the ads in the right column no one looks at 13 times instead of just once....

These slide shows are a pain in the .... to start with. This one is a complete waste of time. Did not finish it because I do not need the BS of a weirdo

Totally agree Lynn. These slideshows are an absolute pita. A real turnoff.

NO MORE SLIDE SHOWS! Give me an article with pertinent links and a choice to view as a slide show. Please.

Why in the world do you make everybody have to go click on page after page to see these things. This is as far as I'm going on this miscegenation.

While some are logical or probably [Star Wars Blu-ray box set, nook] because they are in a decent gift giving price range, I don't see too many people giving that chair [and even the tablet]. Very few give $500+ gifts for Xmas unless it's your spouse or you have money to blow.

And I think I must be becoming more mainstream. Many of these geek gifts are too weird for me. BTW, who needs a Nook and a Kindle? No indication of any preference, or side by side comparison, so why bother?

I know that I spend more than 500 on the wife and I certainly I know I spend more than that when I buy a Gift for me. :D Col
