Day 8:

Bryan’s Tech deal of the day – Want a way to liven up that boring Christmas party (besides putting on that rockin’ santa sweater)? Take a look at the Shock Ball (13.99). It’s like hot potato, but with electricity! How “shocking” 😉 ;)! In the description of this next one it says for adults to put this on a kid’s cake, but I’d love to see these on my birthday cake. They’re colored birthday candles (2.99). No, not the boring ones that are just colored wax. The flames are colored! :O. These next three are gifts for those people who are really smart. It’s a way to say, “Yeah, you’re smart, but my gift is smarter.” Put that brainiac in your life in their place. First is the Irregular IQ Cube (9.99). Basically a Rubik’s Cube with a couple of triangles thrown in. Think about that for a second. Now the Megaminx Duodecahedron Puzzle (10.99). Is your brain sizzling yet? Try the V-Cube 7 Supercube (44.99). At that price it’s honestly more of an investment than a toy, but just look at it. Ow. I think I just popped some neurons. Now for mind blowing. The 12 Surface IQ Pentagon (59.99). The picture speaks for itself. That’s what you’ll have to solve in hell.
Bryan’s Tech website of the day – Happy Hanukkah!! Here’s a Dreidel website. Hours of spinning fun!

Greg’s Teacher Deal of the Day – Nostalgic toys – remember electronic football? Not the Mattel handheld game but the Coleco vibrating football board? The one where when you turn it on, the plastic players are supposed to move forward but usually end up spinning in circles? And the quarterback’s arm has a rubber band in it so it can fling the football which you lost after playing the game twice and ended up using a spit wad? What a great toy. Here’s a video if you don’t remember – Coleco football

You can relive your glory days for only $40 – Excalibur Vibrating Football
