    The Top Tech Gifts for Every Type

     

    Ultimate Tech Gift Guide for 2012

    There are great tech gifts out there for every type of person you can imagine.  Here at RepairLabs.com, we thought we’d make out a list of our favorites for your approval just in time for Cyber Monday. If you're sick of the same old gift ideas, you've come to the right place. Everybody knows an iPad mini or a Nexus 7 tablet would be an awesome gift. But sometimes that's just not the right gift, the perfect gift, the magical rainbow unicorn of gifts.  Actually a tablet is a pretty personal choice. Instead give them a tech gift that they're certain to love, no matter what type of person they are. Here's where you can get your creative juices revving:  you’ll find gifts from $8.00 - $800, and something that certain to tickle the techie fancy of someone you love. We’re sure you’ll find an idea that you love.

  • Geek Fuel: Seriously the biggest “Monster Energy Drink” We’ve EVAR Seen.

    Monster Energy Drink 32 oz, gift from the caffeine fairy caffine

    because she loves us

    The minions here at RepairLabs tinker away all day and night, fixing broken logic boards, rusted and corroded casings, and shattered device screens. With near-magic precision, we manage to bring dead devices back to life, and it takes a special kind of rocket fuel to power a machine this well-oiled and precise. That’s right, kids.  We couldn’t do it without Caffeine.  And lots and lots of it.

    The Caffeine Fairy dropped this Mega 32 ouncer off at our offices this morning. (I would have gotten a photo of her for you, but she’s quick. And jittery.)  Just look at how this Monster Energy Drink dwarfs that Sharpie highlighter. How could we fix your iPhones and Blackberry and Samsung Galaxy III without it? It keeps our little fingers flying across the keyboards, and soldering away at minuscule logic boards and computer components.   So in the spirit of loving caffeine, we quote the venerable and awesome Mr. Steve Jobs saying:

    "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."

    And may we add, they do it on caffeine. And ya gotta be just a little bit crazy to drink a Monster that big.

    Horsehead nebula 'Heres to the crazy ones' Steve Jobs quote

    everybody raise your glass... of Monster
