First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Let the Christmas holiday nightmares begin
- — 08 September, 2006 08:27
Spring has barely made its way into the chilly Australian air -- so it's obviously time to start thinking about the Christmas holiday! It's never too early to start planning for gift-giving, surreptitious gift-exchanging, seeing the relatives you usually try to keep at arm's length, and Christmas carols emanating from places you didn't even know you could put speakers in.
Case in point: Brando's USB Music Santa Claus, an 11''-tall, microphone-wielding, hip-shaking Kris Kringle that happily busts out "Jingle Bells" when he's plugged into your USB port. The jury's out on Brando's claim that it's the "perfect gift for the holidays," but if you're planning on showing this off at work I'd suggest you don't leave Santa repeating the song while you're out for lunch; you may find him in an, um, uncomfortable position when you get back.
