Roku HD Media Player
$79.99 to $129.99
We like to call this media player “the magical box of infinite happiness.” The device connects your television to the Internet, giving you access to thousands of streamable movies and TV shows from Amazon Video on Demand and Netflix. The latest versions (HD and HD-X) play high-definition video.

Kindle DX
A case where bigger is actually better: The latest version of Amazon’s e-book gadget has more display space with a 9.7-inch screen and more than three gigs of memory, reads PDF documents, and is about as light as its predecessors.

Sonos ZonePlayer S5
A wireless five-speaker music system that allows you to stream music from free Internet stations such as Pandora, Last FM, and Napster. You can also hook up an external audio device, such as an iPod, TV, or DVD. If you have an iPhone, you can download the free Sonos Controller application for remote control of the system.
