In what he called "true geek fashion," Andrews--who writes the blog "geek i 4 the tech guy (or girl)"--engraved the wedding proposal to his girlfriend (now fiancee) on the back of a new black 4GB iPod Nano.

"I was more worried that I would have to return the Nano than the ring. Also, I was very nervous that the right message was there since I didn't open it ahead of time," he wrote. "It would have been a shame if there was a mix up and she got the one that read 'Congrats crazy Jim on the big 5-0.' She was very surprised and said 'yes,' by the way. Hey she was getting a new Nano AND a diamond ring. What more could a geek wife-to-be want?"

Congrats to Andrews, whose big day is Dec. 2 in Colorado. Wonder if he'll have an iPod wedding.
