Gadgets for the holidays

The holiday season is here, and today is Cyber Monday so it’s time to go searching for deals. There are a ton of gadget gift guides out there, and has a gadget section in their 2011 Holiday Gift Guide. The WOWee One Slim Portable Speaker is one of the featured products.

You’ll be amazed when you plug this tiny gadget into your MP3 player or phone and turn on some music. Of all the gadgets we’ve tested recently, the WOWee ONE Slim Portable Speaker is one of our favorites. It’s about the size of a deck of cards and easily plugs into any device with an audio jack. All of a sudden you can have a party. The WOWee turns flat, solid surfaces like tables, counters, bumpers, hoods and truck beds into bass-filled sound systems using patented gel technology. The sound changes depending on the type of surface and you can really feel the base on some surfaces. It’s perfect for events like tailgates as it provides about 10 hours of tunes and can turn your grill/cooler/hood into a high-end sound system for the whole parking lot. It’s also great for impromptu parties as it can fit in your pocket, computer bag or glove compartment. Take it on a trip and have parties in your hotel room or by the pool. The possibilities are endless and kids will love it as well. It seems like everyone listens to music alone these days with their headphones, so the WOWee makes it easier for everyone to share and enjoy music.

There are a ton of gadget gift guides out there, so do your research and you’ll find some great stuff. You can start with the ones from USA Today and CNET.


Vitamin MP3 Player Just Begs to be Swallowed

The Vitamin.This is easily the most shocking mp3 player I’ve seen in a long time, mostly because of the ridiculous feature list for such a small device.

Dubbed “The Vitamin,” this little pill is just 2.7 inches long and about an inch in diameter, making it the easiest device for a dog or small child to swallow. There is no listed storage size yet, but The Vitamin is set to enter production (and couch cushions, drains, washing machines, your grandma’s mouth) in late 2009 with the following specs:

    MP3 and WMA support
    30-channel FM tuner and recording support
    7 preset equalizer settings
    USB 2.0 connectivity

Not the longest spec list in the world, but look how tiny that thing is! FM tuner support? An equalizer? All of that and they managed to keep the controls on the device. How do you like them apples, Apple?
