If you prefer your speakers to be on the adorable side, you'll be pleased to see the direction Aluratek's gone with their new Bump line. They're (mostly) wireless, (fairly) affordable, and offer a nice range of audiophilic options.
Ereaders are still at the point where the price is slightly too high and the functionality is slightly too low to purchase on a whim. Aluratek's LCD-based reader, however, offers a damn low price but sacrifices functionality in return.
The Libre eBook Reader PRO has a 2GB SD card with a monochrome reflective light LCD instead of an e-Ink display, which puts into a different bucket than the other eBook readers shipping recently. Plus, it's only $179.
The Gadget: A Wi-Fi internet radio alarm clock from Aluratek, with over 11,000 free stations worldwide.
