I develop electronic projects using Basic Stamp microcontrollers from Parallax, the open source Arduino platform and the mbed platform. Parallax has an excellent sensor suite that I use with almost all projects. SparkFun Electronics has amazing components and sensors as well. If you're looking to go dirt-cheap, order from DealExtreme in Hong Kong and hack sensors from their products.
The Raspberry Pi is the best thing I've seen recently. Made for education but super powerful for hobbyists, this $35 PC is unbelievable. It runs Debian and Arch Linux officially but there are other distros out there too. HTPC's, webservers, asterix phone server, almost anything is possible with this system. It's great for robotics and electronics projects also.
I'm a fan of low power consumption and hate graphics so the Intel Atom and AMD Fusion E-350 systems are my favorite. I've built an entire Atom system with monitor into the cardboard box the Atom shipped in - just so small! Passive cooling on these little boards is pretty amazing, although I admit I'm too scared to go without a fan - must be from the old PC maintenance days.
When it comes to smartphones and tablets I am full Android. I was an Apple person back in the iPhone 3G and 3GS days but the limited development and paid apps brought me to Android permanently. I like the Motorola smartphones but am open to any manufacture really. I love the Samsung Galaxy S Tab also. I still stick with the iPod Touch for MP3 players.
I'm a huge fan of Hack A Day. I've read every post for over 2 years now. A few of my projects have been posted which I'm extremely proud of. They've got everything from hacked products to tutorials and a forum. Excellent resource.
As far as tech news, product reviews and general amazing stuff I stick with The Verge. The guys there are awesome - Josh Topolsky, Nilay Patel and Paul Miller are the best tech journalists I've ever read and very entertaining people.
