It’s Dangerous Wanting a Thing

Here are the material possessions I am obsessing over.

Nexus One phone with Verizon compatibility. Any day now, waiting for Google to update that page so it has the Verizon plans and prices. I am expecting sticker shock. If I don’t like the plans/prices, I can wait for the Evo… the first 4G phone. Problem with the EVO? Sprint only network.

Zotac Z-Box. A barebones diminutive computer that you attach to the back of your LCD monitor via VESA wall mounting bracket. The other drool worthy features include a dual-core 1.66GHz Atom D510 CPU, NVIDIA Ion 2 graphics subsystem that includes 512MB of dedicated DDR3 memory. HDMI 1.3a, six USB ports, integrated 802.11n WiFi, dual-link DVI, and a 6-in-1 media card reader. Should be out any day now.

The latest processors from AMD should be trickling out shortly as well. Some of the 8 and 12-core Opterons made it to some retailers, and they quickly sold out. The Phenom II 6 core CPUs also should be out shortly. Waiting for ASUS to release a new bios so I can plop one of these into my existing computer.
