Crave makes a holiday wish list

Contributors to CNET's Crave gadgets blog make a holiday wish list and check it way more than twice (hey, we're a bunch of compulsive writer-editor types; what do you want?).

We Crave contributors see (and touch) hundreds of products over the course of a given year. Picking just one tech-related item to top our holiday wish lists, therefore, can be a bit daunting.

Will it be a new phone, laptop, e-reader, television, digicam? What about a house-cleaning robot , biometric bracelet , secret-knock door lock , or Boba Fett USB drive ? And what of our more amorphous desires, like finally getting our moms off of AOL or collecting 100 feathers in Assassin's Creed 2 ? How, oh how, to decide?

Well, in the spirit of the holidays (and consumerism), we managed to narrow our wishes to one apiece. Some of our picks are practical, others less so (I'm talking to you, Eric Franklin). In any case, we at Crave made a list and checked it way more than twice (hey, we're a bunch of compulsive writer-editor types; what do you want?).

Scroll through the gallery to see what we're hoping for as 2009 winds down. Then come back to this page and tell us in TalkBack what tops your own tech-related holiday list.
