Linux.com holiday gift guide

Misc

The holiday season is approaching rapidly, and if you're like us, you probably still have some holiday shopping left to do. In the spirit of crass consumerism, we've compiled a list of gifts you may want to add to your wishlist, or for the other geeks in your life.

Have a geek friend who really gets into the Christmas spirit, or a Scrooge who needs a hefty dose of holiday cheer? Hook him up with a USB snowglobe mouse.

The snowglobe mouse also cycles between seven cheery colors, making holiday decorating as easy as plugging in a peripheral. You won't find a mouse with more Christmas cheer anywhere.

Full Story.
