The crew from ANC came by this afternoon to do another shoot about Christmas Gadget Gift Ideas. Was at the studio of Future Perfect last week to tape this same segment so this is more like a continuation.
Actually, I almost missed that taping because of the heavy traffic (took the MRT in the middle of the drive to ABS) and since I was in a hurry, I forgot my bag of goodies in the car. The ones that I brought were already shown by @artsamaniego in the previous gap (Galaxy Note, iPhone 4S, Huawei E586).
The re-shoot was done at home and it was going to be a longer one — more like a show-and-tell segment. And since I have more than 3 dozen gadgets at home, it took us more than 2 hours to cover most of them.
The ones we did in more detail were smartphones — we got 13 handsets on display this afternoon, 3 of them are review units while the rest are mine. The Galaxy Note is there, the iPhone 4S, the Droid Razr, the Sensation XL and HTC Rhyme which were launched this evening were on the table too. So is the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9790 which will be released in the Philippines next year.
We did cover a little bit of the tablets, ultrabooks as well as some media players (Noontec, Mede8er and AC Ryan). We also did some of the unique routers I’m using at home and on the road and the Drobo that was recently given to me by the folks from JT Photoworld. That’s like just half of the items I had and if we had to cover everything I don’t think I might eat the airtime of the entire show so we’re leaving it a bit open-ended.
Anyway, if you can’t catch that segment (runs on Thursdays at 7PM with replays at 10PM), I’m also finishing up my own gadget gift guide this week (to be published soon). Hopefully, it will help you decide on the gadgets you want to buy for yourself or loved ones this Christmas.
