Let's make this thing simple: if your loved one is on AT&T, get him/her an iPhone. If he/she is on Verizon, go with the Motorola Droid. Both are the hottest phones on the market right now. The Droid is the newest entrant challenging the incumbent iPhone. Both have oodles of features that will make any gadget freak drool. Perfect gifts for the holidays.
Good news for residents in West Lancaster, Gamestop has finally opened its doors on Valley Central Way, next to Chuck E. Cheese. No more driving to Palmdale or across town to the East side.

After deciding what TV I was going to um...buy my daughter at Amazon, I kept surfing and came across some great black friday haul maybaby on external media storage devices at the site! The Western Digital 750GB USB 2.0 external hard drive is 38% off at $105.99 (normally $169.99)! That's right, that's less than a quarter a gigabyte! Western Digital has incorporated 'green features' into this hard drive by having it turn off when your computer goes to sleep (or suspend itself) vice continuing to run (and burn power) when the computer is offline. A great gift for your teen or tween (computer savy significant other) who is into electronic movies, music, and pictures! This cyber Monday gift will keep the family computer hard drive a little more open this coming year.
If you'd like a kindle paperwhite deals without Special Offers, it is $139, and it costs $189 for the eReader with 3G cellular connectivity. Interestingly, the sixth-generation Amazon eReader looks almost the same as the one released last year. However, it weighs two-tenths of an ounce less. This could make a bit of difference for users who have trouble holding things for long periods of time. On the back, the kindle paperwhite deals will have an Amazon logo, which replaces the Kindle logo.
The Paperwhite also has the ability to accommodate books with pictures; yes, the pictures are in black and white, but with the Paperwhite's crisp display, I really don't mind that the illustrations are not in color.
