2013 ESPN/ABC Holiday Gift Guide



2013 was a great year for tech lovers and I’ve finally found a moment to post a link to my Technology Holiday Gift Guide showing all the gadgets I recommended and ran last month on ESPN and a few ABC Owned television stations.   Even though the Holidays are over these gift ideas are still relevant for upcoming birthdays or heck, even a well deserved gift for yourself.  Also, if you ever find a cool tech product please let me know about it as I’m always compiling a list of ideas for the next gift guide.

RC10 is back as limited edition release!

RC10 Classic 3Q L_Body On_lg

When I was a kid I always had my eye on the Team Associated RC10 but it was very expensive.  I was however still lucky to get my hands on a Tamiya Grasshopper (also recently rereleased), but it was never a RC10 replacement.    I come to find out that Team Associated has rereleased the RC10 Classic kit for a limited time.   Still made in the U.S.A. (or “a good portion of it is”) with the same basic parts (full list of changes here) — I believe the tooling has changed but for the most part they are identical (read about it more here).   Even the most iconic component, the gold anodized aluminum tub chassis, is included except it has been updated to fit either a 6-cell NiMh or 2S LiPo battery packs.
