Okay okay, you have one, your neighbor has one, and it’s now the gift de rigueur in goodie bags at parties. I’m referring to the Apple iPod, of course, but unlike the stark white mini music-players from before, Apple has recently introduced the new iPod mini. It’s an updated version of the original that boasts a range of five flavorful colors from blueberry to lime. In addition to looking delicious, the new mini can contain up to 1,000 songs, weighs an itsy 3.6 oz (smaller than any cell phone), and has games, a calendar, contacts, and notes. Functional and plain fun, the new iPod series works just as good as they look, and finishes The Style Group’s Top 10 Tech Toys List at number 10. $300
