I was asked what I wanted for Christmas, and when I answered with 'money', my proposal was turned down. I suppose in some ways asking for money can be a bit selfish. Parents don't get the thrill of seeing their children's' faces on Christmas morning as they rip into their presents, the parents...

Apple like to advertise their ‘new generation’ iPods, but I’d like to point out that a 2nd Gen. iPod touch is just as good. Granted, it doesn’t have a camera or the newest processors, but having compared it to the 4th Gen. iPods some of my friends own, I can safely say that the difference is...
