Usually people ask me every year if there is something I wish for for my birthday and usually I answer no, I'm happy and have everything I need or want. This year I asked myself this question early in advance and put together some things I want to have but didn't get yet. Mostly because I'm blank right now

For my baby, my Lenovo X61, I need a bag to put it in. Mostly to protect it while resting in my backpack. So it needs to be small and no extra fancy, big stuff. But a handle would be nice. I really like this model from Grumpler for €50.EDIT: €39,90 at Amazon.
Sometimes I need to handle some files. Like copying from computer to computer without network connection and stuff. I usually run around until I find someone I can borrow a USB thumbdrive from. To stop this annoyance I want a USB thumbdrive which is as small as possible while having as much GBs as possible so I can take it around with me wherever I go. Like on my keychain. The 16GB SuperTalent Pico Mini-A USB Stick is the best combination of size and capacity I found and still affordable at €32.
I spend so much time riding trains and busses, waiting at the doctors and public authorities or being stuck at an internet free place for a weekend or something. It would be a perfect time to do my emails and look up stuff I always wanted to check out and so on. So I want UMTS. First I need a device to do so and found the Sierra 875 Aircard to be working well for my needs. It's sold in the US, but works fine here and costs only €21.72. Don't worry about a mobile data plan, I'll take care of that myself.
Our router at home is getting old. In fact we use two routers, one for a wireless you can only log in shortly after rebooting it but doesn't have ethernet ports and another one which does have some ethernet ports but only totally insecure WEP wireless. Anyway, there is a new router out there with a fair price of €89 which has all the features we need here plus some really cool other features I love like torrent downloading, upload handling for dozens of services like flickr, works as a network attachable storage, can work as a UMTS router and if there is anything I want missing I can just hack it in there myself because it's open source! It's the Fonera 2.0n!
Big laptop harddrive
I love my laptop, but it's not perfect, I admit. For example is the harddrive with 160GB a little bit too small to hold the excessive photo collections my girlfriend creates during every holiday or to extend my little (legal) music collection. And te harddrive isn't the fastest either. But the Seagate Momentus 7200.4 G-Force 500GB SATA II (ST9500420ASG) is a nice harddrive at €104.99.
I might add some more things to that list in the future. So don't get me chocolate and tell me you didn't know what else to get me
Just an idea, but if you're getting something write an anonymous comment to this post (I'll edit the article accordingly) so people know and I won't end up with the same thing five times.
