Birthday Present Ideas

As most of you will no doubt know I'm a geek through and through and have been one for over 30 years now so I'd like something Apple/tech related.
I'd love any ideas that forum members might have.

I'm assuming that's an inkjet printer Ken? Cost per page on those is terrible (around 25c/page) compared to a laser at approx. 4c a page - assuming you don't need colour lasers are the way to go.

I've bought some funky stuff from these guys, lots of toys and novelties to keep any geek happy

On the note of using it to plug in an external hard drive and use it as a time machine backup wirelessly, well I tried that and I only wanted to back up 350GB of data and I woke up in the morning and it said it would take 72 days to back that up initially via time machine.
I asked in the Apple Store and they said the Extreme isn't recommended for time machine backups.... I can see why now. That's what the Time Capsule is for. So I just plug my external drive in like normal and do my time machine backups.
Also if you look on Apples site under the Extreme product page, it doesn't mention anywhere to plug in an external drive and do time machine backups.
Still it's a great product!
