Tech thankfulness

What, in the tech realm, are you most thankful for this year?

So it's Black Friday, and we're sure you're going crazy pushing through insane lines while digesting lots and lots of turkey. But while this time of year is about snagging deals, it's also about gratitude, and in the spirit of yesterday's holiday, we're going to talk about things we're thankful for.

I, of course, am grateful for family, friends, and writing for Crave, but my favorite tech turn of the year is my iPad . Yes, we've dedicated many pixels of text to Apple's device, but that's because many of us think it's that good. I use mine about 80 percent of the time, which gives my MacBook a rest. This week's iOS 4.2 update makes the gadget that much better (though there are still some things the OS can't do on the iPad that we wish it could).

In any case, not everyone's giving thanks for the iPad this year. Many are stoked about the coming of the Windows Phone 7 devices. Others are stoked about Android-based tablets. Still more are into the Google TV. But what about you?

We'd like to know what you, Crave readers, are thankful for. Vote in the poll, and be sure to share additional thoughts in the comments section. Then get back to shopping!
