Bit early, I know, but post what superb Apple related kit you got in here.

Wonder what's the most random thing anybody gets...

I think we're going for a small-ish Samsung LED for the Kitchen, so an AppleTV might well be on the cards in the next few days.

I reckon nitro1471 has won the 'Best Christmas Prize' so far unless someone gets a MBP and iMac!

May be going for the geekiest Apple-related pressie lineup, but I got a Bluetooth 4 Low Energy (aka BLE) development kit from Texas.



Quite impressed seeing my iPhone 4S app talk to it. No special Apple accessory approval or jailbreaking needed to do that (over Bluetooth 4). It's a regular app using official existing APIs and can be put on the official app store . The range is excellent too, covers as much as my wifi network.

As this can be added to devices with a single chip costing about £2 in large quantities and essentially no setup is required (not even the old Bluetooth pairing) I reckon we'll see a lot of bluetooth-enabled things talking to apps in the coming year.

Might turn out somewhat of a little surprise from a often ignored new feature of the 4S.

I think this gets the prize of best Christmas gift IMHO! MacBook Pro is good, but this trumps it!

What you got planned for it? What App are you creating?

No worries if you don't want to say!

I have an iMac on its way, ordered boxing day so I still class it as a Christmas present!

Technically Santa didn't bring it so doesn't count! ;-)

Enjoy it when it arrives fella.

Oh well in that case all I got was money and jewellery, nice but nothing exciting!
 
Nothing for me, but I got my daughter an apple battery charger for her iMac wireless keyboard and mouse.
