If you had to think of a single small gadget that every computer user should have in his arsenal what would you go for? I don’t know what you would choose, but I would go for an All-in-1 Card Reader. It’s one of the little gadgets I’ve been using most to tell you the truth and I don’t know how I would live with out it.
I’ll be perfectly honest, my laptop bag has a pretty vast selection of different bits and pieces in there. I have a couple of webcams, a mouse that turns into a Skype phone, a USB-powered fan and all sorts of other peripherals. But the one I use most has to be my multi-card reader. Most of the time it’s for transfering photos from different cameras, but I have also used it to transfer data to my phone SD card when I was missing the correct cable.
And they’re not particularly expensive either, if you look at the sale page on Buy.com you’ll see that you can get one for just $7 (that’s $13 with a $6 rebate), which is really peanuts. (Actually, the last time I bought peanuts from a hotel they cost more than that).
So, if you’re looking for something small to fill someone’s stocking and you know they have a computer, check if they have a multi-card reader. If they don’t I would get them one of those.
