Everyone has a bucket list, a succinct summation of all the things they’d love to do before they shuffle off this mortal coil. Here at PCWorld, however, we’re nerds, so we put our own spin on the idea.
Instead of climbing Everest, we try for the world record on Donkey Kong. Instead of seeing Machu Picchu, we build our own PCs.
We asked around the PCWorld office and polled our Facebook friends to assemble a list of the 50 best tech-oriented things to do before one’s final hour. And some of the biggest geeks on the staff compiled the list’s five categories: PCs, Mobile, Gaming, Hacking, and Tech Tourism.
Tell us what you would add or delete from the list in the comments area below, or on the PCWorld Facebook page.
