Gadget Gift Guide for the Business Outsider

3. Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G mobile hotspot ($50 with a plan and web discount).

The secret to going your own way technologically is to go your own way connecting to the Web. So, instead of having several pricey cellular Web data plans, one for your phone and PC and car, get one data link that connects them all.

My pick is the Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G portable hotspot. Excellent connectivity, great speed and access to the country's largest 4G network. Be wary, Verizon (VZ - Get Report) is rolling out its own 4G network next year. So Sprint's dominance may fade. But, for now, the Overdrive is the best way to get online on your terms.

4. Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones ($300).

While the mob upgrades their iPhones with in-ear buds or active-noise-reduction headphones, you are too smart to stick things in your ears or pay for headphones with all sorts of fancy features you don't need. Instead go with the simple, fabulous-looking P5s from legendary audio shop Bowers & Wilkins. These fabulous-looking headphones lovingly recreate every note of your favorite music and block out the noisy, crass world the old-fashioned way: They physically seal your ears.

The result is a fantastic set of cans that are as unique as you are. Now, this is the way to listen to music.
