CNET Top 5
Tech gifts for MomMother's Day is right around the corner and Molly Wood is filling in on a very special episode of Top 5.
Hello, everyone, and welcome ME to Top 5, where every time you and Tom meet, he counts down another hot CNET list. I'm Molly Wood, though, and I'm taking over for a very special Top 5, Mother's Day edition. I asked you on Twitter and Facebook to tell me what you thought your tech-savvy moms would like to get for Mother's Day this year. Now, with your suggestions and a couple of mine, let's count down the top 5 tech gifts for Mom. Coming in at Number 5, GPS. Apparently your moms have a tendency to get a little turned around while driving. I'm not saying I do that, but I do travel with at least two GPS devices all the time. Good idea. At number 4, everyone is in favor of a Flip Video MinoHD camcorder! Digital cameras are so last year -- this year mom is all about uploading her HD video clips straight to YouTube. Obviously. Coming in at number 3, the iPod Touch. Your moms have expensive taste, but it is a pretty perfect gadget for entertaining both moms AND, say, toddlers. Trust me on this one. At Number 2, the Kindle 2 was a major mom suggestion. In fact, one of you even said, "you mean, there's something OTHER than a Kindle 2?" Just make sure you also give her a coupon for several hours of uninterrupted reading time. Ok, but before you find out what else there is, besides a Kindle, let's check out the best of the rest of the ideas you suggested for mom: Ok, it's time to find out what you suggested as the number one tech gift for mom. At number one ... a digital picture frame. Awww. I agree, this is a great gift for moms -- as long as you load it up with photos before you give it to her. That's the key. Trust me. And that's it for this edition of Top 5! Tom Merritt will be back next week with another list and a prize to give away. For this week, your prize is your mother's love. I'm Molly Wood, thanks for watching, everyone.
