Worry not, as MAKE's got you and your nerdy friends covered. Their gift guide lists such cool open source-friendly gadgets as the Qtopia Greenphone (a Linux phone with an SDK), the Neuros OSD media player, an Open Source wireless router, and MAKE's own Daisy MP3 player. Your buddies will thank you. Then fix your computer.
