Christmas will soon be upon us and for most of is it’s time to hit the shops and bag those choice gifts for your loved ones. It can be tough to know what to choose from the plethora of equally exciting (or not) trinkets, so I’ve put together a range of gifts to suit your that Tech obsessed person in your life.
The panic button, the only key that’s missing from modern keyboards and you can add that special key to any keyboard, phone, TV, controller, Boss or Mother-in-Law you like with the cheap and cheerful Panic Button! OK, the button doesn’t actually do anything but it’s comedic value is enough to bring a smile to any keyboard jockey’s face, so if you know of someone who’s just a little glued to their keyboard, bring a little hilarity to the holiday season for the bargain price of $5 (£2.99) from IWOOT.com.
What’s the worst thing about dropping your phone in the river or having it pinched by some miscrent? The loss of your phone of course, it’s a pain in the neck to be without a phone these days and what happens if you’re stranded in the middle of no where with no functioning phone? Well that’s where a cheap, pre-paid backup phone comes in. These days you can get a PAYG phone for next to nothing so why not put a backup phone in someone’s stocking this Christmas?
You can pick up the Motorola W260g for the bargain price of just $17.99. OK, it doesn’t do much, but it’s got great battery life, looks pretty cool and will be there if you need it, after all you’re hoping they’re not going to need it. So help ease someone’s loss and stick one of these beauties in their stocking.
File storage could never be described as sexy or cool, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. That’s where these Sculpted Star Wars flash drives come in. Ranging from 4 to 16Gbs in capacity and available in the shape of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda or my personal favourite the iconic Storm Trooper, what’s not to love. So spice up someone special’s mundane for the bargain price of $29.99 +s&h. Available from TymeMachines.com.
Fancy one of these little beauties, totally gratis on us? Thought you might. We’ve got 7 of the little blighters to give away, so check back all next week from Monday to Sunday for your chance to win your choice of character, one per day, from Pixelated Geek in partnership with Tyme Machines.
In many countries like the the UK, talking on the phone whilst driving is illegal unless you’re using a hands-free system. Fair enough, talking on the phone is a major distraction, so if you’re on the hunt for a gadget for that special someone that not only looks great and fulfils that gadget lust but is actually useful you can’t go wrong with a Bluetooth headset.
The Jabra JX10 features exquisite styling, a compact design and the Jabra workings that have made them the worlds No. 1 BT headset manufacturer. After a bit of hunting I managed to find the diminutive and stylish little beauty for $40.49 (+s&h) from Overstock.com, a real bargain if you ask me. So don’t miss out head on over there right away and make someone safe, happy and gadget fulfilled.
If you’re the kind of person who’s got limitless cash then why not indulge your special person of choice with what’s possibly the coolest gadget on the street at the moment: The Tesla Roadster Sport? How does 0-60 in 3.7 seconds sound? Yeah, thought you might like that. The Roadster Sport takes the already pretty impressive Roadster and turns it into an animal. Custom suspension setup on your preference and 100% of torque right from the get go, I’m not sure I can think of a more fun gadget that actually serves some sort of purpose. OK, you might not be able to take the family to the cinema in it (you’ll need a Tesla S for that) but who cares when you’re flying round the streets like a bat out of hell and helping reduce your carbon footprint. Starting at the eye-popping price of $128,500 (£101,900) it’s not for your average geek, but if you’ve got money to burn, what better way to blast around the streets in style, comfort and all electric. If you happen to have one already, get in touch and we’ll be sure to feature your ugly mug on PG.
