150-200 dollar gift

we’re doin a white elephant party with about 7 guys. all have pretty good money and pretty much everything they want, were on the computer 24/7 and we work together, what’s a good gift in that price range to give to a bunch of 22-24 year olds ???
I thought white elephant parties were for gag gifts, that’s one fucking expensive gag gift.
My suggestion would be something off of thinkgeek.com but I can’t see any way that it would get there in time.

Little help with flash drive

So my OTSS gave me a 16g SanDisk flashdrive. I’ve never really used flashdrives other than for storage. So bear with me if I sound like a retard. I’ve installed firefox on my flashdrive and I’m able to load it up and surf the web, but I’m not able to get flash 10.0.? so that I can watch Hulu. Everytime I try and update the flash player it tries to update it on my PC. (I’m at work and don’t have admin rights to download it on the PC)

Any suggestions, or should I just wait till I get home? It’s a really slow day and I’d love to watch some TV

iPhone questions

I don’t really know a lot about Apple’s products, iTunes, etc. Got an iPhone. Only way I can figure out to copy music to it is syncing. But whenever I sync it wants to copy EVERYTHING from my phone onto my computer to "back up" my phone. It also always wants to update my contact list and do stupid shit like that.

How can I make it so when I sync only music is updated but nothing else? Or how can I copy music without syncing?

T-Mobile G1

Does anyone have any experience with unlocking the G1 and getting it to work on AT&T? I unlocked the phone, now when I use every tutorial online, they say to put in the APN settings, however I don’t have any options to edit the APN settings. When I hit the menu button, I get "Wireless Settings" but no way to enter in the APN stuff. Let me know if anyone has any ideas. Thanks a lot.

So i’m prolly 10yrs too late here but…

i’m just getting into the Apple ipod and that whole line of gadgets.

Anyway, I saw the iphone and the itouch and I’m wondering whats the difference between the two cause they look the same?
iTouch is skinnier and doesn’t support phone calling, is available in up to 64gb, and connects to internet via wifi.

iPhone does phone calls, has gps, (3gs) has compass, is available up to 32gb (3gs), connects to internet via 3G, Edge or wifi network. Also costs a minimum of $30 for the data package on AT&T…over whatever your normal cell costs are. (I have family messaging on my family plan so I didn’t count that $)

Should i get an iPhone?

so i was gonna get an iPod for my car, But i need a new phone as well, so i was intially considering a black berry and an iPod but i saw the iPhone and got to thinking how convient it would be to have a iPhone-3Gs so i would always have my music and always have a phone in hand with a charger in my car.

My question is this i currently pay 80 bucks a month for my phone how much would my bill go up with the the basic plan(450 anytime minutes, 500 night and weekend I never talk on my phone anyways, with unlimited text messaging) and im keeping my number. also does the iPhone work in in korea seeing as it takes a sim card?

Verizon bandwidth caps?

I know all the advertised "unlimited" data plans actually cap out at 5gb, but I’ve been reading about how its supposedly only for certain data types.

I’ve been starting to steam a shit ton of music on Slacker from my Droid while I at work, and I noticed it seems to chew up about 200+mb of bandwidth a day, which will throw me over the cap before my monthly cycle resets.

Does anybody have experience with Verizon cutting them off for exceeding their limit for streaming media? I dont want to get nailed with a giant bill for going over or even a nasty ETF and having them shut down my account entirely.

Developing a PCB

I have an idea for game and I am looking into developing a prototype. I have no idea how much it would cost to develop the schematics and engineer the printed circuit board. Anyone have any idea? The electronic portion could be compared to the scoring system of a cheap electronic dartboard.
