That question, of course, is a trick 'em, dick 'em way of telling you - psst! - here's what's on my list.
What I don't want in my stocking this Christmas: Coal. A Snuggie. Tiger Woods' sloppy seconds. Swine Flu. Wade Phillips' resume.
What has caught me eye this season - other than a copy of the new Tiger's Wood porn - is something I saw last night called the PowerMat. It's basically this rubbbery mat that just lays there. Anywhere. And when you place your phone on it - presto, charge-oh.
(UPDATE: A caller to 105.3 The Fan just told me it's a joke. Have to buy a special case, which isn't compatible with iPhone accessories and chargers, etc. Slump shoulders. Yanking down stocking.)
I suck at cords and charges and cigarette lighters and this seems like one of those "why didn't I think of that" ideas every dork shouldn't be without. Or am I missing something?
