It's that time of year again, which means there will be crazy traffic on the roads and high prices in department stores. If you're in a bind trying to find that special gift this holiday season, here's a gift guide to help you out.
Its a lot more than just a phone, and we're being little modest when we call it a 'milestone'. Set to be launched as part of Digicel's 'The Next Generation' campaign, the Motorola Milestone comes to Jamaica – the first country in the region to have it on the marketplace – ready to change how we view and use smartphones. In fact, its the "phone without compromise".
MOBILE phone service provider Digicel (Jamaica) announced that it will be offering 4G broadband service in Jamaica as of next year, having secured a licence in the 2.5Ghz spectrum for the deployment of wireless broadband services.
Back in 2004, four years after first launching thePlayStation 2, Sony brought out a new, much more compact PS2. Timed to come out just as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was hitting stores, the redesigned console helped breath new life into the PS2 franchise. It remains on store shelves today--you can pick one up for just $99.
The advantages of the iPhone are mostly immediately visible. Its differentiating characteristics are extroverted, shouting them right into your face. For the casual observer, these iPhone advantages are very compelling when comparing it to its main rival to date, the Blackberry. However, Blackberry also has numerous advantages, almost all of which are “behind the scenes” and therefore often beyond the comprehension or attention span of most consumers to fully analyze before a purchase decision is made.
Dub Siren is an IPhone App that allows you to stream reggae music from internet radio stations (see link to full list below). What's so great about this app is that you can interactively mix the music being streamed with reggae sound effects right on your Iphone. The app is available in two modes "Dub Mode" modeled primarily off of 1970s analog synth and "Dancehall Mode" which includes reggae sound effects used by popular sound systems today.
Released by Handmark, Tweetcaster is the newest of many twitter blackberry clients to hit the market. What does Tweetcaster provide that's better than other apps such Twitterberry or Ubertwitter? The ability to toggle between multiple accounts twitter account. For instance if you have a twitter account for your business and one for personal use. Additionally, you can also shorten URLs which can use a major portion of your 140 character limit microblogging space... so that's a big plus, as well as GPS, picture sharing and the ability to view the current trending topics list.

Wii-obsessors this post is for you. Nintendo is just a few days away from releasing its next official game for your wrist waving pleasure Wii Sports Resort. Set to be released on July 26, 2009 Wii Sports Resort is the next level to the Wii Sports released with the seventh generation game console when it debuted back in 2006. The game features sporting moves in different types of competition including waterskiing, skydiving, sword play & "disc dogging" aka playing frisbee much like its predecessor but with the addition of Wii Motion Plus. What is Wii Motion Plus? Well it's a small attachment that is placed at the bottom of your current Wii remote that will add to your experience by providing greater precision when executing your sporting moves. Nintendo has single handedly revolutionized gaming with the creation of the Wii and the company is set to release even more games that are compatible with the Wii Motion Plus in the coming months.

Activision ups the ante with another full band game. It’s even more than full band – it’s got an 8 player battle of the bands mode that is guaranteed to turn anyone into a fierce musical competitor. A new guitar controller (how many of these things do I need in my living room?) and microphone are joined by an authentic electronic drum kit with three drum pads, two raised cymbals and a bass kick pedal. The game boasts a huge selection of classic and modern rock and a huge downloadable library even on the Wii. Check out the FREE downloadable reggae pack which includes Slightly Stoopid's "Jimi", Pepper's "Your Face", and "Sacrifice" from The Expendables.

With more instruments and a killer online battle of the bands modes that lets you shred eardrums worldwide, Rock Band 2 totally kicks ass. Create your rocker, form your band, and hit the road seeking fame, fortune, and groupie sex, while learning to master lead or bass guitar, drums, and vocals, or at least the toy versions of the instruments compatible with the game. Create your own songs and share them online. The 84 track setlist includes AC/DC, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Pearl Jam, and Sonic Youth, And yes, it is backwards compatible with Rock Band downloadable music content. Plus there's the new AC/DC pack if you want your dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
Sony's got a winner for karaoke lovers. Every song is like stepping into a music video. There are a lot of different versions so there's one for everyone. In addition to Volumes 1 and 2, there's also Legends (my favorite) which includes The Police, The Jackson 5, Nirvana and Marvin Gaye, while Country includes Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, and more. And there's even more - Pop, ABBA, 90's, 80's, Rocks, Amped, and other band specific track packs like Queen. If you've got the EyeToy camera you can watch your own video instead of the artist's.
Wii Music is an enigma because, unlike other music games, it sets out to have you play over 60 different instruments. Because of this it is hit or miss with whether people enjoy it. You use the Wii remote and nunchuk to "play" guitar, horns, keyboards, drums, sitar, xylophone - you name it. Play alone or form a band either on one Wii or online. You can shoot your own videos as you jam out. This is the easiest music game to play so if you're playing it with or giving it to a kid this is the right fit.
