Holiday Shopping Guide 2001

Reader rating: 2 out of 10


What's popular this year? What gifts should you purchase for the Holidays?

This How-To Article is a guide to the year's most popular electronic gifts.

Holiday Shopping Guide 2001

MP3 Players

MP3 Players are very popular items this Holiday season. Not only are the prices going down, but they are also becoming easier to use. The idea of not needing to carry around your entire CD collection with you is also another reason for MP3 Players being so popular this year.

Digital Cameras

Digital Cameras are changing the way that we take and store photographs. Instead of needing film developed and then purchasing more film, pictures are either stored directly on the camera, or on memory cards.

Once the pictures are transferred onto your computer, you can modify them in many ways: increase/decrease brightness, add pictures effects and more. You can also save your pictures on your computer, therefore creating "digital photo archives".

Don't expect professional photo-shop quality when you print pictures out of your typical ink-jet printer. However, many printer companies are working on affordable photo printers, allowing you to print near professional quality from your digital camera.

Handheld PCs

How would you like to be able to carry around your E-mail, calendar, address book, and more in the palm of your hand? Handheld PCs are designed to help you do just that.

The two main types of handheld PCs are Microsoft Pocket PC and Palm handhelds. The Palm is geared towards the user who wants simplicity, and Pocket PC is geared at the user who wants the most powerful mobile computing experience available.

DVD Players

With DVD Player prices dropping to as low as $99 this year, they are very popular gifts.

Compared to the typical VCR, DVDs provide superior video and audio quality. If you've never experienced the quality of a DVD, a good comparison is CDs to Cassettes.

Eventually, all video will be moved to DVDs, just as almost all music is on CD. With prices so low this year, now's the best time to purchase a DVD Player.
