Oddball gifts for uber geeks

These Christmas gift ideas may surprise even the most hardened geeks in your life

Samsung CL65 Camera with Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth

Who to give it to: The camera geek

If your geek travels a lot and takes a lot of pictures along the way, the Samsung CL65 Camera ($US399, Samsung.com) might be the perfect gift. This 12-megapixel model is the first digital camera equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS/Geo-tagging.

The Samsung CL65 allows photo-geeks to upload pictures and videos directly from their camera to Flickr, Facebook, Photobox, Picasa, and YouTube, as well as via e-mail, over unprotected wireless networks. The built-in GPS tags photos with the locations where they were taken. And Bluetooth capabilities allow you to stream photos and videos or send them to other Bluetooth-enabled devices: phones, computers, and even HDTVs. The Samsung CL65 features Smart Face recognition, scene recognition, 5X optical zoom, and a 3.5-inch touchscreen display. It's a great gift for anyone who's geeky enough to want Wi-Fi in a camera…or for anyone who tends to forget where they took this or that awesome picture.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
