The things Veronica is hoping to find under her tree, or in a stocking this holiday season.
1) MacBook Air. Specifically, I want the 13" 1.8Ghz dual core i7 with the 256GB SSD.
2) A New Gaming PC to take on the challenges of next year's PC gaming releases.
3) A New Macro Lens for her camera. Specifically the Sony - SAL-30M28.
4) A Lytro Camera. A nifty rethink in digital cameras were you can focus after the picture has already been taken. It's a light field camera, which means it apparently captures all the planes of light in the entire field, so you can go back and edit focus later.
5) A really sweet Swiss Army Knife.
Robert has a modest list this year, but it's still packed with some really cool gear.
1) iPad 3/iPhone 5. Sure they're not out yet or even announced, but why wait?
2) It's not just Home Theaters that need quality displays. For critical applications where color accuracy is a must, you can't go wrong with NEC's 30" MultiSync PA301W.
3) For the PC gamer, the right keyboard is a must. For Robert it's the Logitech G19 Keyboard.
4) Of course, every gaming keyboard needs a gaming mouse like the Logitech G9x Laser Mouse.
5) Because not everything can be accomplished online, Robert wants a new set of wheels. His pick? Nissan's 2012 Z Coupe NISMO 370Z.
8) Get SCUBA certified: Rob found a local dive shop that has some awesome reviews.
9) Rob could take his first pilot lesson.
10) A new JVC DLA-RS65 4K front projector for the living room.
11) And a Panasonic AE7000 front projector.
12) Travel to a country he has yet to visit.
13) A new Pioneer Elite SC-57 AVR for his new surround sound setup.
14) A sweet set of 5.1/7.1 speakers.

What Roger hopes Santa will bring on Christmas Eve:
2) Canon's EF 35mm 1.4/f USM lens.
2) iPhone 4S
3) An upgraded iPod using Toshiba's 250GB 1.8" hard drive.
4) HeadRoom Total BitHead headphone amp/DAC to replace the one he loaned out but never got returned.
5) Sonos Play:3 for the bedroom.
6) A 27 inch monitor in 2560x1440... a 30" would be bettah if Santa's drunk!
7) Pat normally rolls with plain great champion hoodies, but lusts after the Captain America Hoodie.
8) Always the gearhead, Pat wants a Carli Performance 2.5 long travel suspension for his truck.
9) A Jewell Trigger for his Remington 700, and Leupold Mark 4 scope to replace the Nikon that ain't holding up so well.
