Tech gift guide

In Business & Technology /

Just in time for the holidays, the Eyeopener brings you our annual round-up of the best gifts for the special geeks in your life

FOR THE TECH-SAVVY BOOKWORM:
The Kindle Fire — $199
This is possibly the best (moderately priced) tablet on the market. The Kindle Fire gives you access to books, games, movies, apps and the web as well as magazines, a colour touchscreen with a dual core processor. So basically, it rocks. Find it at amazon.com.

FOR YOUR FAVOURITE INNER CHILD:
Protocol Accelerator RC Helicopter — $39.99
We all like remote control vehicles and flying ones are even more awesome. This toy helicopter is cheap, boasts multiple propellers, and will kick you back into your happy childish years after a long-ass semester. Aside from that, parts have a 90 day warranty in case you fuck up and break it. Find it at Future Shop, online or in-store.

FOR THE REALITY CHALLENGED:
Big Foam Eight-Bit Cursor — $13
Ok, so this is where we get a little too geeky for some of you, and a little too awesome for others. This is a foam finger, and as the name promises, shaped like an eight-bit cursor. You know you want one. Get it at bustedtees.com
