Holiday Gift Ideas – Choosing A Droid Docking Station

It is always a struggle to pick out a gift for that someone who has everything. One of the latest cell phone models on the market are the Motorola Droid phones. In my opinion, they are just as much a toy as they are an indispensable tool. One suggestion for that hard to get friend, is a Droid docking station. Before you head out to the store or go online to buy one, there are a few details you need to know so you choose the right one.

What is a docking station?

If you are not familiar with a Droid docking station, here are a few details. Also referred to as a multimedia station, this incredible accessories takes your Droid phone and turns it into a full-blow multimedia experience. Once seated in the station, here are a few of the uses of this great accessory:

Turns the phone into a bedside alarm clock that displays the time and local weather.
In landscape position, it allows you to conveniently view videos and listen to your favorite music.
Doubles as a recharger so you do not have to ever think about your Droid power running low.

Are the Droid’s all the same?

Each model of the Droid phones are slightly different. Size and shape do matter when considering a Droid docking station. Each particular phone has its on special model and getting the wrong one will have you giving an absolutely useless gift! Make sure you know what type of Droid phone they have first before making your purchase.

Will their cell phone fit?

Along with the type of Droid phone they have, you also need to consider whether they have a special protective case for their phone. If they do, then a Droid docking station is not going to work. Most of the protective cases out there make the cell phone too big to fit in a station. However, there is a very easy solution to this problem. If you still want to consider getting them a Droid docking station, you might want to also get them one of the special protective products that allow a phone to fit. A couple of examples of inexpensive super slim protection come from Zagg and Realook.

Personally I have two docking stations – one for my bedroom and one for my office. I was very impressed with the quality and durability, confident that they will last. By having two, it allows me to keep my phone fully charged the day through and I have a very cool way to listen music and watch videos at work! You might want to consider getting a second one as a gift as well, providing the with the toys they want at home and work.

Getting a Droid docking station as a gift is a great idea and will prove to be useful for a long time. They will love all the features it has to offer. If you are stumped what to get that special person, a docking station might just be what you are looking for.

Hadimba Devi is the patron deity of Manali. According to legends, Hadimba was a demoness who married the Pandava brother, Bhima. When Pandavas returned from exile, she chose not to accompany them and stay back. It was then that she meditated and attained the status of goddess.

These springs are hot water springs and have medicinal properties. The area has a number of ancient temples dedicated to Lord Ram and his Kala Guru, Vashisht.


Old Manali is the older part of the town which now forms the entire Manali. It is distinctly impressive and lures tourists with its old world charm. With its old bungalows, small-time cafes and modest inns, this is a nice place to stay for those who look for a good yet economical option.

WBEZ gift bag with matches & buttons

Image by TheeErin
Once inside the station, a table of gift bags awaited the Flickr group. Upstairs we discovered an even nicer table of snacky treats!

Vocolo is a project by WBEZ to get the community involved in production. A " creative free-for-all, with no shows and no stuffy time slots" if you will.

Sounds a lot like what college radio used to be.

I’m all for this new outreach, except the overt shout-out to the test-marketed lower-income listeners with buttons and matches reveals a little too much about the staff at WBEZ.

Come on guys. You are above using these unhealthy pandering tactics.

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.
