Five Gadgets that’ll keep you company on a lonely Valentine’s day.


Valentine can be a cruel day for the citizens of geekdom. Your colleagues and friends conveniently ignore invitations to your Lord of the Rings or Matrix Trilogy parties. They would rather indulge in a super expensive meal for two followed by things that us geeks might not know much about.

Fear not for your friends at t-break have put together a list of five gadgets that can keep you company on a lonely valentine. Best of all these gadgets will not consume themselves once the night is over- you’ll have a full year to play with them before its time to upgrade and you would have probably paid the same as colleagues did for a night.

Toshiba NB200 – AED 1,299 (US$ 350)

The iPad is still a few months away and until that revolutionizes the netbook market [/sarcasm], you can get yourself a nice little netbook to tweet every little action such as “Whistling to the tune of Dr. Who.” The Toshiba N200 is a nice and light netbook with Windows 7 to install Seesmic’s desktop client and Google’s Chrome browser. Plus you can RDP into your BES server at work and find out who messaged who.

LG 42″ LED SL90 TV – AED 6,999 (US$ 1,900)

So what if your friends couldn’t make it to your Matrix Trilogy party. You can experience Trinity kicking ass in full 1080p resolution on a razor thin display that’ll make you forget about anyone else being or not being in the room. Yes, this is quite expensive but it has Bluetooth and DivX playback through USB along with the razor think and ultra sharp LED screen.

Blackberry Bold 9700 – AED 2,399 (US$ 650)

The Blackberry Messenger or BBM is the perfect platform to chat with other geeks that are alone this Valentine’s day. Along with chatting, you can also send them pictures of your new Graphics cards modification and voice notes to podcast a step-by-step. The Blackberry Bold 9700 is a super fast device along with a 3.2MP camera to help you do just that.

iPod Touch – AED 1,199 (US$ 326)

The iPod touch will let you listen to “All by myself” from Celine Dion as many times as you would want to followed by a session of Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars. And we prefer the “o” to the “a” any day.

Samsung ST550 Dual LCD Camera – AED 1,299 (US$ 350)

Last but certainly not the least, we have a gadget that no blogger that likes to put every picture of theirs on their website should be without. With the Samsung ST500 digital camera, you will never be out of the frame with its front facing LCD screen.
