The [email protected] VP325

By David Ponce

The Holidays are coming. You know that, right?

Now, I’m sure that if you think hard enough, you’ll realize you’ve got some kid in your life who’s constantly lusting after all your gadgets. He plays with them, presses all the buttons, while you hold your breath and smile politely. Now, you could buy that kid some phony Fisher Price piece of crap simili-gadget. But kids are smart, man. They’ll see right through it. So, be nice, and shell out a very reasonable $50 to purchase this: the [email protected] 256MB MP3 Player.

For that amount, you’re getting a truckload of features:
• 256mb flash memory
• MP3/WMA/OGG playback
• Game Function
• JPEG Picture Display
• 1.9-inch CSTN color LCD
• Text to Speech 2.0
• Line-in MP3 Encoding
• FM Radio Tuner
• Voice Recording
• Phone Book Function
• Text View Function
• Stop Watch Function
• Calculator Function
• Built-in rechargeable battery, up to 15 hours playback
• SRS WOW sound effect
• USB Flash Drive
• Includes protective case

With that, he’ll be the coolest nine year old in class, and he’ll adore you forever. Or, maybe he’ll curse you and kick you in the shin for not buying him a nano instead. Who knows with kids these days.
