My kids never know what to get me for birthdays or Christmas, so they get me gift cards to <insert electronics chain here> and <insert bookstore chain here>, which frankly is fine with me. So the question for our faithful readers is what should I use these gift cards to buy this year? I've read 4 of the 7 books on Richard Bejtlich's Digital Security Postgraduate School, 4 of the 7 on his Digital Security War College, and 6 of the 7 on his Digital Security Bootcamp lists, but what other ones should I look at? How about cool new gadgets? I've got a friend who has a USB HDTV receiver/tuner to watch over-the-air HDTV, he thinks I should look at one of those, what do you think? I'll collect responses and post your thoughts next week.
