Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? If not, we’ve made it a little bit easier with some gift ideas or maybe, just a present for yourself.
Do you frequently watch streaming videos from Amazon, Netflix, MLB.TV, and other services? If you do, the Roku HD-XR ($129.99) is an ideal product for you. The RokU HD-XR is compact media player that streams high-definition content from these and other Internet services to your television. Unfortunately, the player does not stream videos from YouTube, Hulu, and Vudu, but does offer its own channel store.
Jelfin Ball Mouse
Are you bored with your ordinary mouse? Well, the Jelfin Mouse ($34.95) is here to solve that problem. Ball-shaped and gel-covered, the Jelfin mouse is supposedly more comfortable than your typical mouse and comes in an array of colors. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac and has a sensitivity of 1000 dpi. And when things get hectic, this little mouse comes in handy with its stress ball-like design.
Kensington Car Mount with Sound Amplified Cradle for iPhone
As more and more GPS apps become available on the iPhone, a sturdy cradle to mount your iPhone is certainly a necessity. The Kensington Car Mount with Sound Amplified Cradle for iPhone (starting at $29.95) is sturdy, easily rotated, and allows you to plug in your iPhone’s charger. This cradle does not come equipped with the latest and greatest features (built-in charging and high-volume sound amplification), but it certainly provides a durable and simple mount.
Logitech Squeezebox Radio

Additionally, this radio can be integrated with Facebook and Flickr allowing you to update your status or browse photos from any room in your home.
In case you were wondering, yes this is a keyboard just for Gmail.
