Xbox One

Xbox One

I'm looking forward to sitting in my pants on Christmas day barking voice commands at the new Xbox. I've sworn to get into telly shows such as Breaking Bad, so I'm going to compliment it with a Netflix subscription.

And then there's the games - Forza 5, Battlefield 4 and Dead Rising 3 top my list - and I'm intrigued as to how the new Kinect has turned out. Not to mention the rumble bumpers...

Western Digital MyCloud 2TB


I've just bought the 2013 MacBook Air, which comes with a not exactly huge 128GB HDD. As such, I'm hoping to find WD's new MyCloud under the tree as it would come in massively handy in storing my movies, songs, photos and videos.

I recently tried out the company's mobile MyCloud app and it's a pleasant experience. Having my own personal Spotify / video streaming cloud with no monthly fees is hugely attractive for me.

Adidas's Springblade trainers could get me back into jogging in the new year, which will give me an excuse to splash out on a jogging app or fitness band - perhaps the Fitbit or Nike Fuelband SE.

I used to run at least one 10k every year but fell out of the habit two years ago, so these blade-fitted shoes could offer just enough of that new tech 'pizzaz' feel to make me jog on.

And one app for Boxing Day


Minecraft Pocket Edition: I've been on the hunt for a new game for some time, and this 'honey I shrunk the blocks' version of Minecraft looks just the ticket. I've dabbled in the desktop version - not long enough to become addicted, mind - but enough to develop an interest in what it has to offer.

I was addicted to Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 in the 90s, so I'm looking forward to flexing my creative chops come Boxing Day.
