Best gifts for Apple Mac fans - Creative Inspire T12 Speakers
I was looking for nice looking speakers that did not take up a lot space on my desk. Something that didn't look funky. I know the Creative brand and thought to give these a try. I have two kids so that means I can't play my music when they're sleeping. But the T12s have a headphone jack in the front, and when I plug in my headphones it directs all the sound out of the headphone jack and not the speakers. When I unplug the headphones, the sound comes back out from the speakers.

Can't believe how well it works. Now I can record movies from my HD channels and the EyeTV transfers them automatically to iTunes for my iPad.
Best gifts for Apple Mac fans - Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB SDHC Wi-Fi Memory Card
The Eye-Fi card and its ability to transfer images wirelessly to your computer, iPad, or a web service is one of my favorite things to come along in years!

I took over 1200 photos in Rome, Herculanem, Naples, Florence and Venice, this little card is probably the best thing I have purchased for my camera. My pictures actually make it from the camera to the computer now for everyone to be able to enjoy.
