Just because I write about gadgets doesn't mean I'll get all the cool ones I want for Christmas.
Unfortunately, one of the toys topping my wish list - the Barnes and Noble 'nook' e-book reader - is out of stock. But you can still get (and give) a specially made 'nook' e-coupon (at least it will save on wrapping paper!).
At Amazon, some of the big deals of the day include 40 percent off the EyeClops Mini Projector, Sennheiser RS 130 Wireless Surround Sound Headphones for $199.68 (normally $380.61) and the 2G Apple iPod touch 8 GB for $158.
And at Buy.com, the $82 pricetag on the TomTom One 130 Portable GPS with Preloaded Maps and a 3.5" Touchscreen is certainly enticing (as I always get lost driving around my new home state of Connecticut).
Then again, I should probably get in the true spirit of the holiday and shop for someone else, like my fiancé, who really wants the new Beatles Rock Band for Wii (on sale for $40). At least that's a gift that'll benefit the both of us.
