Tom Merritt's Holiday Wish List
As part of the whole holiday gift guide here at CNET we've all been ask to let you
know what WE would put on our own wish lists.
And frankly I've no idea if you'll care. It's not like I want you to get me these things.
At first I thought of being all smarmy and saying that all I want is an end to world
hunger and war. Not that I don't, I do. But I also want to ask for things I think I'll get.
So honestly, I need a new microphone. Maybe a nice Heil PR40, oh and a good boom
On the more practical front, I'd also like a wireless charging mat. Since it;'s a WISH
listI want one in several places, like my desk the coffee table, you know. Wherever I
may need to lay down my phone.
And while I'm wishing, how about a real simple networking protocol that allows all
kinds of machines, no matter the OS or manufacturer, to talk to each other. Like
WiFi Direct but better!
Now we're in danger of me asking for all the things I want to be invented. I'll save
that for an episode of top 5.
You know the gift I really want, the one you can give me is easy. Keep on being the
smartest most fun audience in the world.
SHLOCKY I know. But I mean it. The folks who write and call and chat are
invaluable. You make our shows and our jobs the best.
Thank you. And happy holidays!
