Last-Minute Gift Ideas That Promise to Save Time and Energy in 2009

There are only a few days left before Christmas and many people are blitzing local shopping malls in search of last-minute gifts. If you are one of these people, you might want to consider these neat little "stocking stuffer" ideas.

The first suggested item is the Clickfree Portable Backup HD325.

Clickfree has made the hassle of backing up our data virtually fool-proof. All a user has to do is open the package, plug it into a USB port and watch the small device store data instantly! It has a capacity of 320 GB, sells for around $179.99 and is available at most retail stores nationwide. (Source:

Clickfree has targeted the 85-90 percent of computer users who fail to backup their important files because of time and computer literacy limitations.

Have someone on your list that is always on the move with their laptop? Pick up the Microsoft Explorer Mouse with BlueTrack Technology. Its biggest selling point: this mouse can move turbulence-free on almost any surface. Now your "special someone" can get their work done whether gliding over a concrete park bench or the carpet of their living room floor.

Its blue light emitting from the base sets it apart from the other "mice on the market" and it also comes with a snap-in mini transceiver for a wireless connection of up to 30 feet away. The Explorer mouse sells for around $89.95.

Think giving a new computer mouse is a good idea but the price is a little "steep for Santa"? Pick up the Microsoft Arc Mouse.

The Arc is shaped like a crescent moon and reduces by half of its normal size when folded shut. Another interesting feature: it automatically turns itself off after a few idle minutes, thus conserving power. Like the Explorer, the Arc also comes with a snap-in mini transceiver for wireless connection and sells for around $69.99.(Source:

We hope these suggestions help alleviate some "stresses of the season". Happy Holidays from all of us at Infopackets.
