5 gifts for the Techie In Your Life

ImagesI'll admit it:  I'm not the easiest person to shop for at Christmas.  The things I like are either hard to find, expensive,  or both.  So when the holiday rolls around, my friends and family always seem to be stumped when it comes to Xmas shopping.

Maybe you know someone that fits this profile too.  Well, you're in luck this holiday season.  Here are five gift ideas sure to please the Geek in your life:

1) Self Powered Radio with Cell phone Charger (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001QTXKCE)

With a solar panel, a hand crank, flash light, four radio bands, and a plug to charge your cell phone, this little radio is a must-have addition to any emergency kit.

2)USB Audio Interface (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KW2YEI)

For under $30, you can finally transfer that awesome mix tape you made Freshmen year to CD!

 3) Cell Phone Hip Flask (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000MELSJQ)

Tired of the Man telling you where and when drinking hard liquor is socially acceptable?  With this surreptitious little beauty, you--HIC!--make your own rules.

4) Webcam Missle Launcher (http://www.x-tremegeek.com/usb-webcam-missile-launcher.html)

Actually, this would be way more fun if you had one on each end of your webcam.  However, it's still a blast to launch missiles at unsuspecting callers.

5) Apple TV (http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/apple_tv)

Coming in as the most expensive item on the list ($99), the Apple TV box brings Netflix, iTunes content, and a slew of other internet-related entertainment to your TV, courtesy of your home wireless network.

Unfortunately my awesome mix tape was on reel to reel, which is probably beyond help.
