Number five on your list of the of the top tech toys -- for this time of the year.
So what is -- top tech toys may be the most important.
Tech toys also so Microsoft rolling out their surface which is -- answer to the iPad so here it is a Microsoft surface and if you really consider -- it's.
A mobile operating system what you see here on this Nokia Lumia 920 their windows eight operating system on a tablet device and it just shows me that Microsoft is serious about getting into this space.
They sold okay.
I think this is a first generation product.
But what it shows to me is now there's a viable alternative -- some other alternatives out there in the marketplace it has -- kick stand it has a keyboard to it so it's not an iPad rip off.
It's and -- who thought.
It really is they're spending a fortune you see advertising everywhere right you'd go buy a mall they're out there were special kiosk trying to get people get hands on -- -- are they betting the company on this thing I think they are betting the company on windows eight.
And so windows -- on any device it's a new version of the east high old interface which.
I'm a little worried that people like my dad aren't wanted gonna want to see that start menu.
I'm always a scary your dad Clayton and I gotta tell you I'm looking at the I'd love my iPhone the touch screen out everything else but I'm looking at the ads for this and it's all about.
News he can videos on going non wanna use a proposed.
Yes it is it for the kids have so is Microsoft betting that this is something that the kids are gonna wanna use and yes if you need to use excel and you use Microsoft Office -- simply hit that start but you go to desktop that you're used to.
I still think they have one foot in one camp and one foot in and other.
So I'm not convinced that this is going to be a huge success -- Enterprise companies just are now moving to Windows 7.
If you ask the folks here fox in the -- department and we moved to windows -- anytime -- that it -- well but -- excited about it it -- -- Microsoft -- forward -- debt and they've invented something really special and unique all right what is net number four on your -- number for -- let's -- let me tell you what -- this is something your -- -- say we get -- now -- can save -- hundreds of dollars a -- okay.

And the guy Tony Fidel who created the iPod left apple created -- -- it's the Smart learning thermostat.
You ensure room on the screen automatically lights up when you are way it knows her way it learns Tom Sullivan's habits and patterns to know that you go downing -- coffee -- 5 AM.
And that it better -- on a little heat for you.
When you're away.
We saved by installing it 300 dollars a month.
We -- bill went from 500 dollars down to 200 do you do you need all kinds of adapters around the house think.
IPods simplicity you open up the box it's got two little cables little stickers on there with your existing home thermostat put those stickers on it you plug it right in.
You shouldn't need to call electrician I'm gonna be without a sort of -- thing I didn't call electrician and I got -- up.
Plus you can control with the -- -- -- off a flight you land.
You're gonna be home in twenty minutes you wanna turn on the heat your house before -- only been away for a week -- fire -- the -- did it doesn't know that.
Different battered but I can I can yes under the message and they do that leaves them this is the first generation one they launched it last year the second generation just came out it's at -- it's been a huge success for.
Perfect number three on the list.
Google we I don't -- -- -- Google glasses it's still exists in the ether and a few journalists have gotten their hands on this Google rolling this out here's what you're looking at one of the executives from Google piece on now.

It's high definition now.
And now you've got this game pad controller over here which is all brand news so I can control -- touching the screen like a tablet interface I've got the controls like usual plus I can now play hard core games like call of duty so Nintendo.
