I can remeber some years where it was Monday before I felt like eating again.....lol.....We went to our son's house Thursday night and I didn't eat that much must be my age....lol

And because of my age I can see how people make the Holidays so much more stressful than they should be. I wouldn't go back to having to do that for anything....

Kim Komando, in her newsletter told about some things that should not be on your Christmas lists to buy this year. Such as GPS systems and cam corders...

The reason is that any smart phone can get Google maps which are updated more than the GPS systems are. We were looking to get one but thought we really didn't want to put out over $150 for a good one.....now those same ones we were looking at have been on sale for under $70..... And the movie cameras are on a lot of things like your still camera and other mobile divices...seems silly to buy one now it seems and those too I have seen on the internet for a fraction of what they were a year ago.....

Feature phones was another one if they aren't a smart phone they are dumbphones I guess.....but when I tried to buy one from HSN yesterday I found it couldn't be activated in my area, so I am stuck with the dumb one I already have...lol.....

Net books, I didn't think those would last to long.....since the ipad and Android came out the little Netbook is going by the way also......a friend of mine bought a new computer and they gave him a netbook......lol

She also says that portable media players except for those tiny musing things like the ipod shuffle everything else you can use your smart phone for I guess.....

And she says digital still cameras and I saw that one too because phones are going from the 1 mega pixel cameras I saw one with 3 so before long when they get maybe up to about 8MP for casual photos they are going to be just fine.....some take some nice photos already.....but you would have to pry my DSLR out of my cold dead hands cause it ain't going nowhere..lol
