High-Tech Stocking Stuffers

Now that the holiday shopping season is coming down to the wire, why settle for tube socks or Old Spice when you can give the gift of technology -- at budget prices?

Low-priced domain registrars GoDaddy and DirectNIC offer domain name registration, basic websites and web-based e-mail accounts for as little as $10 a year. Best of all, you don't have to fight the crowds at the malls. If you want to spend a little more, check out this tech gift guide, which suggests games and MP3 player accessories as choice stocking stuffers, as well as many pricier items.

Procrastinators, however, risk losing out this season unless they start shopping now. Some of the hot items -- gadgets and high-tech toys especially -- are starting to sell out and are becoming increasingly hard to find.
