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
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
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.
