    With it being the Holiday season there's quite a few! But I will say the most recent Bowers and Wilkins P7s I got during Black Friday for $270 are amazing. Also have a Dragonfly Red (Digital to Analog Converter) on order to go with them!

    Although most will say this is nutso, my wife and I decided to get our 16 month old his own 32GB iPod Touch. Obviously it will be given to him by us just for small video watching/learning/playing times. It's not really "his" as it would be for a older child. Mainly we were just tired of our iPhone batteries being held hostage lol. We also got him a kid case for it.

    Just got an iPhone 7 Plus, 128 GB, Black (not Jet Black).

    Incredibly happy to have 128 GB of storage. Ecstatic, even.

    The incredibly minuscule 16 GB storage (on my iPhone 6s Plus) sure did suck!

    Installed one of those little Clash of Clans ripoffs. Turns out to be a mix of Faster Than Light. $100 in micro credit later... yeah. That's my spending money gone for the month.

    Have fun Napoleon! It's very satisfying to build your own machine. I've done that with my last two computers. You get what you want in a computer for about 1/2 the cost of a store bought machine. Not to mention the satisfaction of building your own.

    I've been doing it since the early 90s. It started with my Cyrix P166+ CPU setup. I was in the Air Force Band at the time and we were to stay at a single motel in Maine for a few days during an upcoming tour. One of the guys in the band worked part-time at Circuit City and procured us all network cards. Five or six of us hung out in one room all night for several nights playing Doom. It was awesome and my PC was blowing everyone else's away speed-wise. Those were the days. :)

    My current computer is my best effort so far. An Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard with an AMD FX-8320 Eight-Core 3.50 gigahertz processor, 5 TB of storage on 3 Hard Drives and 16 GB of memory. I don't do any gaming or Processor/Memory intensive work other than some video processing occasionally and rarely exceed 50% processor usage so I should be set for a few years. I do like playing with a couple older Dell machines I have, one running Linux Black Lab and one that runs Linux OpenSuse 42.2. I've still got a lot of learning to do with Linux but like what I'm finding so far. Enjoy your new "Toy"!

    I decided to increase my Apple "fanboy-ness" buy getting an Apple Watch. 42mm Series 2, Space Grey. Immediately had to get a different band - nylon strap band. I dislike all the Apple bands that I have looked at. Also bought a case because I am worried about smacking the watch into a doorframe or something.

    Exchanged the aforementioned case for the Lian-Li Ebonsteel PC-K6. Love it.

    Also popped one of these bad boys in there. Hard drive read and writes in the GBs.

    Like the SSD's but they're still a little expensive for my budget. Like all tech though, the price will eventually come down even while the performance gets better.
