A Geeks Guide 2 Christmas In true geek style we will be wrapping up the fourth and final part of our trilogy. Covering a wide range of books, this week’s GG2 will provide you with the very best titles for Christmas shopping, from Superfreakonomics to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, World of Warcraft Cataclysm to golf. …
Real geeks don't use iPhones
You can't do anything "geeky" with an iPhone, all you can do is use it as Apple intend. Nothing wrong with that in itself as it makes the device, essentially, bomb-proof, which is great for most users.
But unless you can mod it to hell and back, it ain't a Geek Gadget.
A trilogy in four parts
Five parts, surely? Six if you count the recent one by Eoin Colfer
Geeks, don't bother with the sex guide, you'll only get confused when you see it's not like the internets say it is.
Stick with the Warcraft book, that'll make far more sense
I've always found the best way to be familiar with the plots of books is to, well, read them?
Great stuff right there!
Now I know the Reg is larey of Apple but...
"The portable genius guides are brilliant and essential reading for all Apple lovers. With the iPhone 4 still in huge demand, iPhone 4 Portable Genius is the perfect Christmas present to help users understand and use new features such as Facetime, as well as syncing their iPhone with their PC."

Geek wannabees, you mean.
Aside possibly from the superfreakonomics book, I can see no way in hell any true geek would want to buy any of the other titles for it implies lack of basic knowledge (ie the guide to HHGTG and WoW book) or irrelevant knowledge (ie the sex one)
