Once upon a time, people who loved technology and gadgets were considered geeks. It’s weird to think about just how recently that era was, particularly since the general public now sits in rapt attention whenever Apple unveils a new product in California. Now everyone’s a gadget person, and meeting someone who’s not is a jarring experience.

With so many of us leading gadget-centric lives (I have an iPhone, an iPad, a MacBook Pro and an iMac. All in my tiny apartment. For no reason. They’re like a little family that I live with.), technology is a natural source of great holiday gifts.
