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.

Wowwee Cinemin Swivel Pico Projector (Gadget Head, Under $500) Despite being a strong candidate for worst product name hall of fame, Wowwee (also a candidate for worst company name) did a swell job with the Cinemin Swivel ($300), a mini video projector that lets you plug in a video source -- iPod, iPhone, PSP, Flip Video, digital camera, netbook, whatever -- and then throw it up on a wall at...
