Gift Guide: Galileo EGS-1 Golf Scope and Rangefinder

Galileo EGS-1 Golf Scope and Rangefinder (Sports Fan, Under $50) One of the key skills to the game of golf is being able to accurately gauge the distance needed for your next swat and then picking the right club for the job accordingly. Since you or your loved one are presumably hopeless at it, there's the Galileo EGS_1, a monocular for sighting and then instantly measuring the distance to the...

Gift Guide: Peek Pronto Mobile Messaging Device

Peek Pronto Mobile Messaging Device (Novice, Under $50) While the makers of the Pronto may cringe at the comparison, consider it a welcome companion to the elder-friendly Jitterbug cellphone. The Pronto is a $50 dedicated e-mail- and text-messaging device for those who either can't get their heads around the intricacies of using a multifunction smartphone or simply don't want to (and the origi...

Gift Guide: FujiFilm Instax Mini 7

FujiFilm Instax Mini 7 (Style-o-Phile, under $100) Polaroid may come and Polaroid may go (and then come right back again), but there will always be a place in our hearts for instant film. Especially when it's as easy, foolproof, and cheap as Fuji's $85 Instax Mini 7. For the uninitiated in this digital age, the idea is that you snap a shot and a full-color 2 x 3-inch print pops out and is de...

Gift Guide: Nikon Camera S640

No one wants to purchase just a 'point-and-click,' and for those who fancy themselves an amateur photographer (with emphasis on amateur), the Coolpix S640 is a solid intro that can help trigger-happy shooters grow into themselves. Shiny features like four sharp colors, a 'skin softening' feature, and in-camera red-eye adjustments appeal to the fashionable or self-conscious, as does the feathery...

Gift Guide: Barnes & Noble Nook eBook Reader

Earth Lover, Best Under $500 Barnes & Noble Nook eBook Reader With the endless flow of eReaders hitting the streets every few hours now, the market has gotten thick real quick. The Kindle is obviously the iPod of the bunch so far, but we think Barnes & Noble's Nook is a real contender for the title. It's gorgeous, fun to use, extremely versatile, small enough for a big pocket (7.7 x...

Gift Guide: Pioneer Elite KURO PRO 60-inch TV

Homebody, Cost No Object Pioneer Elite KURO PRO-151FD 60-inch Plasma HDTV For devout videophiles who don't go the projector route, there's still nothing that satisfies like plasma, and for plasmas, there's nothing that compares to a Pioneer Elite. The top-of-the-line KURO PRO-151FD represents the highest quality TV-watching experience possible (and a price tag to match it, at 6,500 clams). Natu...

Gift Guide: Areaware Vanmoof Cruiser Bicycle

Areaware Vanmoof Bike (Earth Lover, Under $1,000) If the hipster trend of sleek, lightweight fixed gear-bikes leaves you cold (or with a concussion, as the case very well may be), then a less-aggressive cruiser might be more your speed. Leave it to the Dutch, who are perhaps the world's most devout users of two-wheelers, to make the most of the ordinarily drab cruiser. Areaware's Vanmoof ($60...

Holiday Shipping Deadlines Make Sure You Don't Ruin the Holidays

The holiday season has officially started, and if you're anything like us you do the vast majority of your shopping online these days. You get a broader selection, often better prices, and, most importantly, you avoid the crowds. The only problem is knowing when to order if you want to make sure your gifts show up on time for dispersal. That's where this handy cheat sheet from Dealnews comes t...

Classic Gadgets Still for Sale

Share In an era when fanboys start throwing tantrums if the iPod hasn't been updated in a couple months, and new cellphone models hit the store every week, we find comfort in tech that is made to last long enough to get a little dusty. Granted, that's increasingly harder to do, what with the explosion of new digital technologies in the past few decades and that pesky Moore's Law breathing down...

Send a Free Snail Mail Card, Courtesy of the All-Mighty Google

Even though Google is supplying airports with free Wi-Fi, the Big G has one more trick up its all-encompassing sleeve. Despite being the e-mail program of plenty of Americans, Gmail acknowledges that, while an e-card is easy, nothing is more charming than a snail-mail greeting. So, if you and a beloved other share a love for that simple red Gmail "M", head on over and create a free card to be sen...

Is the Leica M9 Worth the Hype?

HYPE CHECK Leica M9 Digital Rangefinder Camera What it is: The cult of Leica originated in the '40s, when Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Magnum photographers first brought the so-called "decisive moment" into the cultural consciousness. Their startlingly immediate images of street life, war, and people are as fresh today as they were the day they were snapped. The weapon of choice for this sch...

Gift Guide: Music Hall MMF-5.1SE Turntable

Music Hall MMF-5.1SE Turntable (Style-O-Phile, Under $1,000) Much to the delight of Baby Boomers and pedantic audiophile soothsayers, vinyl is back in a big way. Which means two things: your husband/boyfriend/son/whoever was right about keeping those stacks of wax instead of selling them at a garage sale, and; he's going to need something to play them on. If budget isn't an issue but top-shelf...

Gift Guide: 27-inch Apple iMac

27-inch Apple iMac (Creative, Under $2500) We generally agree that Mac users get hit with the legendary Apple Tax for some models, but the recently updated iMacs have us buzzing about bargains. Overall the 27-inchers are very respectably spec-ed out for starting at $1700, with a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (or 2.66Ghz quad-core Intel Core i5), 4 gigabytes of memory, a 1 terabyte hard drive and a...

Gift Guide: Dark Blade Mini Remote Control Helicopter

Dark Blade 3-Channel R/C Helicopter (Gadget Head, Under $50) A perennial winner for the holiday-gift satisfaction sweepstakes, remote control helicopters are the gift that says: "I know you're a textbook arrested development case, but everyone deserves to be happy -- so go fly your geek flag." Dark Blade's mini-chopper is a standout precisely because of its extreme mini-ness and excellent ha...
