Did You Get Want You Wanted for Xmas?

Video iPod? 20 years ago you might have gotten a walkman, the #1 gadget of the past fifty years. At least according to PC World. But I'm biased. 80's toys rule. Personally, I would have moved Atari up the list, the Game Boy WAY up, and not even included the Razr. But that's just me. What else was on the list? View the Video Report here.

(Puts on quavery old-woman voice) When I was a kid, I saved up for a Walkman very much like that one, you know, with the TWO headphone jacks so my friends could plug into my set and listen to Bob Marley/The Specials/UB-40 (Rat in the Kitchen, aiiight?) with me at the beach. It took me like 9 months. And than some bastid STOLE it! But I loved it whilst I had it! Yeah for Walkmans! and iPods! esp. the Nano!

OK. You obviously had good solid taste at a young age. My walkman had ABBA when I was 9, Beastie Boys when I was 12, Paula Abdul when I was 14, A Tribe Called Quest when I was 17, and Primus when I was 19. Which is probably why I think all music sucks and rocks at the same time. I constantly defy myself. I even like Shania Twain's "Gonna Getcha" and have no problem with that.
