The team at BYTE had the unique challenge of finding the top business-worthy consumer tech gifts for the holidays. There are lots of top 10 lists out there, but our challenge was finding cool consumer stuff that will also work well in the enterprise. Of course, many consumer products can be brought into the enterprise--that's the raison d'etre for BYTE--but there aren't a lot of them that also make great gifts. We skipped the obvious--the iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire--because we bet whoever wants those gadgets has them already. Our goal: gifts that would surprise, yet also function at work.
The concept of consumerization is not waiting for IT to help you with a project; if you need to make a video to show the sales team how your department's new product works, just do it with your iPhone. Now, to make your videos pop, attach a Photojojo iPhone Lens Dial
and add a wide angle, fish-eye, or telephoto effect to the project just by rotating the dial. $249
