The holidays are coming and everyone wants a new tech gadget, but the economy makes things tough. What cool devices offer a lot of functionality and the most bang for the buck?

Eric Wethington of Dodd Camera (www.doddcamera.com) will make his second appearance and share with us a few of the new digital cameras for the season. Eric will show the Nikon Coolpix S1000 PJ with bulit-in projector (http://tinyurl.com/yz5yo56) and the Nikon Coolpix P6000 with GPS. He'll also have an assortment of suggested Stocking Stuffers for the photo enthusiast in your family.

Stephen Wilson of The Coolest Geek will demonstrate the Novatel Wireless Mifi 2200 (http://tinyurl.com/ygc2c89), a portable wireless router that will make owners the envy of their geek friends.
