Generation Next

Throw away those Apple ear-duds and elevate your sound courtesy of Sony’s Triqii headphones. Headphones are back in a big way, but with a modern twist. These feature 30MM drivers that pack a big bass boost with sound quality so crisp it could crack. Better yet, the simple and flexible design means they’re resilient enough so you can play rough, but remember to be nice – Santa’s watching. ($39.99,


Flash Forward

Become the Sartorialist – or gift the next Annie Leibovitz – with Sony’s Cyber-shot T99. Compact and oh-so-sleek, it’s reinvented with an LCD touchscreen and movie mode so you can redefine the words “amateur photographer.” Create sweet panoramic shots with a stunning 14.1-megapixel lens, or switch to Intelligent Auto (iAuto), designed to think for you, recognizing lighting conditions and adjusting settings for clearer images, natural skin tones, and less blur. ($269.99,

Dock Yourself

“Express yourself, don’t repress yourself.” If the Sony TRiK docking station had a theme song, that would be it. The ultimate outlet for expression – and we’re not just talking musically here – the TRiK lets you customize your own skins online to bring your music to life. Better yet, all graphic skins are reusable and interchangeable. Made for the iPod or iPhone. ($199.99,
