Another Christmas Gift done (almost)

I put a lot of thought into my gifts. So finding the perfect gift for everyone takes a bit of work. I think I figured out the bf's gift though. When I wrote about my U3 enabled USB stick, I thought of him. He’s been talking about looking for an USB with similar functionalities, but is too busy to do the research.

Today I went to Amazon.com and found the even better version of my USB. Mine is a SanDisk 2GB Micro Cruzer , which by the way is now half the price I bought it for. $16.89 for 2GB! I wish I waited.

The one that I’m looking at for the bf is the SanDisk 4GB Cruzer Titanium USB or the SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Titanium USB .

The 4GB is $47.99 and the 2GB is only $19.99. Obviously, 4GB is a better price range for a Christmas gift. However, the 2GB is quite enough memory and limits possible loss of data in case it gets lost, corrupted, or broken. The latter situation may be quite unlikely since the Titanium case can take quite a beating (perfect for him). I don’t know. I can’t ask him because then he’d figure out what my gift is. I’ll sleep on it.

Notice that even though I’m in Canada, I am shopping on Amazon.com? Well, the price differences are quite big and the selection is limited. Of the three I listed, I can only find one on amazon.ca - the 2GB Titanium is $59.99! I’m going to send it to a friend in New York, who will bring it back with him when he comes back for the holidays.
