Gadgets Dominate Online Holiday Shopping

Posted by: Rob Hof on November 27, 2005

When it comes to holiday shopping online, it looks like electronics rules this year. No wonder, I suppose, with the iPod Nano and the Xbox 360 in the lineup. Still, the top searches at eBay’s comparison site, for one, were utterly dominated by gadgets:

* Apple iPod Nano
* Microsoft Xbox 360
* Canon PowerShot A510
* Leapfrog Leapster Learning System
* Marlo Glazed Leather Hobo Bag
* Garmin GPSMAP GPS Receiver, Dyson DCO7 Bagless Upright Vacuum
* Humax T800 TiVo Video Recorder (80-hour)
* Casio Triple Sensor Pathfinder
* Panasonic 42 inch HDTV Plasma TV
* Women’s UGG boots
* Men’s Wrestling Shoes
* Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer
* Youniverse Teller Machine

Just one question: Men’s wrestling shoes: What’s up with that?

Interesting to me that the nano is number one, and the iPod video is nowhere in sight. Also, I hadn't considered buying a Marlo Glazed Leather Hobo Bag, but now that I see that it ranks higher than a plasma TV or the 80-hour TiVo, I'll have to give it a look.

Those Dysons rock! Bright colored and specially designed attachments for pets, I have heard people say a lot of good things about them.

There's a cool demo at

I dont know if any Garmin GPSMAP GPS Receiver is good. I like the Garmin NUVI but the older models are just bulky. I looked up all the Garmins here in tthis website and I only like the Nuvi.
