gift guide: under $50
tri as you might, you might not find a better affordable audio gift for your ipod owning friends this year. the tripod mp3 speaker is only $40 and acts as a super light (2 oz!) portable speaker for your mp3 player, cd player or camera. i'm not sure about it's blow-you-away sound quality, but for those on the go, it's a fun idea. more details are right here (adjustable legs, rubber footing, powered by one "aaa" battery). enjoy!
