Tech Question: What is your next technology purchase?

You have seen my 2012 Gift Guide suggestions over the last week. Now I am going to ask what YOUR SUGGESTIONS might be?

What is your next technology purchase? What device, game, software, or hardware has you itching to buy? What technology would help you be more productive -- or just give you a chance to have a great time?

For me, I am looking at the new iPhone 5 as my next purchase. I am ready to upgrade from my iPhone 4 and pass it along to my wife, who has yet to own a smartphone. I think it is time she entered the modern world and I get the latest, greatest phone in the bargain. You can't really beat that. (LAUGH) I also want to buy a new LCD TV with at least a 46" screen. We are currently using a hand-me-down TV that was graciously offered to us, but it is projection HD monitor with fairly limited inputs and capabilities -- it doesn't' even have an HDMI port. So, that is also near the top of my list.

So, tell me, and the other TechIQ readers, what is next on your technology to-buy list? Share your thoughts, and comments below and let's see what neat ideas turn up. It might just change my own list.

For me it will be the Nexus 10.

I moved from iPhone 4S to Galaxy SIII 3 months ago and it was the best decision I ever made. Android 4.1+ and the play store has finally made the switch from Apple easy. I can do everything that I did on Apple and more with Android devices and most importantly I get to keep more of my hard earned money as I move forward.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
