•    Encryption security keys
•    Supports common access cards and the DateKey/Safenet 330 cards

2) Bluetooth Headset

 Active Image

If you like your stocking fillers on the petite side, check out the Jabra JX10 headset. Using Bluetooth technology, this little beauty is Jabra’s smallest and lightest (a mere 10 grams) on the market. And to appeal to the style conscious, it’s designed by Danish designer Jacob Jensen. But get yours fast, as only 1,000 units are available in Australia.


•    Choice of three colours
•    Charger and dock
•    Limited edition

Product: Jabra JX10
RRP: $249*

3) Sony Digital Notetaker

 While we hope you’re not working over the holidays, get prepared for when that next big idea hits with Sony’s new U Series Notetaker ICDU70. With capabilities to store up to 500 hours of recordings and powered by one AAA battery, you’ll get up to about nine hours worth of playback. And if you get tired of the sound of your own voice, add your favourite MP3 tracks for playback.

•    1GB capacity
•    MP3 player
•    Direct USB connection

Product: Sony digital notetaker ICDU70
RRP: $299*

4) GelSprinter Printer

Active ImageFor help printing anything from Christmas cards to your January sale catalogues, the BERTL innovation award-winning GelSprinter range from Ricoh might hit the spot. Rather than using traditional laser or inkjet technology, GelSprinter uses a viscous liquid gel that dries to paper almost instantly, and with the Level Colour mode, it’s costs almost the same to print in colour as black-and-white. Not too sure if it will fit in your Christmas stocking, though…


•    Prints up to 30ppm
•    Network-ready (GX3050N and GX5050N models)
•    Multi-sheet bypass tray
•    Prints to 3600 x 1200dpi

Product: GelSprinter range
RRP: from $319*

5) Toshiba Gigabeat

The new Gigabeat S (in 30GB and 60GB models) uses Microsoft Windows Portable Media Center software so you can store, listen to and view your favourite music, TV programs, videos and photos. Wanna use it throughout the holidays? Its extended battery life means you can listen to up to 12 hours of music or watch 2.5 hours of video.

•    FM Radio tuner
•    2.4-inch LCD screen
•    Landscape or portrait view

Product: Toshiba Gigabeat S
