Federated Media’s annual Holiday Gadget Guide

Federated Media, the networked blog advertising agency and publisher (that reps makezine.com, boingboing.com, and streettech.com, among many others) has put together another one of their Holiday Gadget Guides (the first appeared last year). The Guide includes reviews of recommended gadgets and fine geekery from bloggers in the FM network, including three of your MAKE editors: Phillip Torrone, myself, and Mark Frauenfelder. Our reviews thus far:
