Tech Culture: Brian Cooley's holiday wish list

2:16 /

Brian Cooley shows you some of the gifts that he looks forward to getting this year.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:10 >> Brian: Hello everybody, Brian Cooley here with my own personal wish list for the holiday season. Sounds kind of greedy but what the hell, they've asked us to do one. First, I guess I want a Zune HD. Not because I'm overly enthused about any of its new features or have any more tolerance for that Kluge [assumed spelling] software that I had the last 2 holiday seasons but because I recently lost my original 30 gigabyte brown terd Zune, and the HD is, basically, the heir apparent, that's why. I dearly love the Country Squire, you know that, but you also know me in the cars so here are a couple I'd like to find under my tree. Yeah, this 1970 Mura over at Fantasy Junction, that's killin' me. The uncharacteristically serious color and that clean but drivable condition, those really speak to me. Of course, it's sniffing around the half million dollar mark, which brings me to the other car I'd like to find under the tree and it would actually fit under the tree. It's the Honda Fit Sport. At about the price of a really good watch and with the best daily econobox DNA out there it also speaks to me. And frankly I wouldn't mind finding a Ford Fusion Hybrid tucked under the old Spruce but wow, am I that boring? Here's what I'd like you to give your cat or dog a microchip and a spay or neuter if you haven't already. And if you're giving a pet this holiday please adopt from a shelter and don't buy from a store or a breeder. Now, Tom and Molly set the bar really high with their earnest wishes for a better year ahead than this tough one and that we can enjoy the continued patronage of you, our fantastic CNET users. I can only echo that. Since 1995 you guys have made what we do much more than reviewing and recommending tech stuff. You've made it about helping people use electronics and the Internet to live better and enjoy the stuff that matters. So thanks for making our work valuable. By the way, I want to see your holiday wish list. Go over to CNET.com and search Wish List, make one and let us know about it. Happy holidays. ^E00:02:10
