postheadericon So, what’d you get?

Let’s just call it what it is: the best Christmas ever. Why? Well, for starters, it’s December 25th. Secondly, it’s a Saturday in much of the world. How often does that happen? The technology outfits ’round the globe have managed to deliver a rather insane stack of wares to consider this year — from terrifically desirable goods to rubbish that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy’s enemies — and now it’s our turn to pry into your business and find out what Santa Claus dumped (or didn’t dump) under your tree overnight. Hit us up with your scores in comments below, and be sure to cast your vote as to whether or not the kid on the right is feigning excitement over his newfound laptop. Oh, the kid in the video just past the break — that’s probably useful information.

When you’re done, check out what people got jazzed about in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

postheadericon Google’s 2010 holiday doodle: its ‘most ambitious one yet’

Taken a look at Google’s homepage recently? If not, we’d recommend you do so, STAT. The image you see here will only be an active doodle — a name given to Google’s “special” logos used to commemorate certain events and holidays — for a few more hours. According to a lengthy report over at the Wall Street Journal, the Holiday 2010 Doodle is El Goog’s “most ambitious one yet,” taking five artists some 250 hours to create. Google estimates that it has crafted some 900 doodles since 1998, with a whopping 270 of ’em running in 2010. This particular one relies on 17 interactive portraits of holiday scenes from around the globe, and it took the team a number of months to finally whip up a finished product that everyone was stoked on. We’d encourage you to click around on it to discover what the tiles actually mean, and if you’re hungry to learn about the shockingly interesting backstory that surrounds it, the source link has a URL with your name on it.
