Oh yes, today is the Oscars. I must have been so excited that I completely forgot about it. Every year the Oscar nominees are awards with bags of swag usually full of tech and other goodies. Don't fret, there are some rules to these gift bags. The individual items cannot be valued below $500. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the gift bags have an estimated value of $100,000.

This year, the highlight of the swag bags is the "Gunmetal" Motorola PEBL that we mentioned last month. The tech items make up the cheaper pieces of the swag bag including are a $600 expresso maker and a $550 VTech broadband phone system.
