So from a very weary and more than slightly sleepy Foodie by Night here is another fun gift guide. Quick update on the foodie and Pup- I’m moving home next week for the holidays and then heading out to San Francisco after New Years. In the midst of all this moving: I’ve been showing my apartment, finishing up my master’s degree (finals are next week-Eek!), finishing an internship, buying christmas gifts (that’s a fun one) and trying to pull together a web app, an eBook, and build a website. It certainly is a busy time! But without further ado- the list!
Gift Guide:Tech Treats
1. RichNeeleyDesigns Booksi smartphone docks ($50-$80)- every year I buy someone one of these clever contraptions. The Booksi is a book that has been repurposed into a smartphone or iPad dock. Set the booksi atop a stack of books and no one will realize its true purpose until the notice that your iPhone is mysteriously standing itself up on top of it… These Booksi come in many flavors Classics like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice are available as well as new hits such as Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. Don’t see the Booksi of your dreams? Not a problem! The lovely folks at Rich Neeley will make you a custom booksi!
2. Teksure Computer and iPhone skins ($25 for Macbook Pro skin pictured)- One look at the Parudao wood teksure skin and I was in love. Durable and high in image quality these nifty skins add character to any Apple product!
3. The Fit Bit Zip ($60)- This little device plays well with others. Track exercise and calories burned with this tiny piece of tech and have it automatically update some of your favorite health apps. Apps that can work with Fit Bit include “My Fitness Pal”, “Endomondo”, and “Spark People” as well as several other major apps. The fit bit computer program awards you badges when you accomplish goals and even lets you compete with friends and family. How’s that for motivation to keep off that holiday weight!
4. eBook Reader (and iPad) covers from Out of Print ($45)- These covers are designed to look like your favorite classic books. You can find covers from Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice and even Le Voyage de Babar!
5. “Crust be Dreaming” USB drive on Modcloth ($25)- 4gb of adorable space for your digital files.
6. The Kindle Paperwhite ($120-$140)- A big ticket item but I couldn’t resist including an ereader! The paperwhite will glow on demand and supports the new file format KF8 which much to us eBook developers’ happiness makes ebooks look and act far better. It’s $120 with ads and $140 without ads!
Until next time!
