Does the gift at the top of your personal Christmas wish-list require batteries/electricity to work?

One hardly needs batteries to operate "The Complete Works of John Donne" :)

Technically yes. Bass guitar plugs into an amp, but it kinda isn't necessary.

Not unless i get an amp which isn't necessary. I want drums

@SoloPocono I don't know about third parties, but if you go to a local Apple Store or Apple Store online you'll know that you're getting what you want. You could also try 1 (800) MYA-PPLE and ask what they think, try searching by serial number, or *maybe* try Best Buy or Radio Shack.

The thing on the top of my list is the Encyclopedia Britanica. It is so sad to see books and encyclopedias becoming more and more scarse...

Already got a new iPod 2 days ago. Thats my gift. Its all I wanted

Quick question, (since some were commenting on headphones):
I lost my Apple mic/earphones & I want to order another headphone/earphone with a mic. I saw 5-6 on Amazon and eBay last night-but they didn't say if they're compatible with Apple devices. ANYONE know of a "generic" set that's compatible?

I want a car, but I don't think I'm gonna get it... But the only other things on my list are clothes, shoes, jewelry, a purse, and a Betsey Johnson wallet!

@fiat yes it is. I know that they use electricity and probably batteries but giving to them does not.

must remember that you can still hear outside noises, just not as loud. If you can make a custom adapter, that HS-1 can be used for audio in as well. Probably those refurbished HS-1s are gone now though, so it'd be a HS-1A now retailing for somewhere from $100-$180.

So, as an example, because this also has about 24 db of sound blocking, I'll plug it into my iPod Touch when I vacuum! ;) You'd have to try them out to see if they're worth your money, but there are also active noise blocking headphones for probably about $200 that work pretty nicely. However, you…

@danni what market? Dow, S&P 500, NASDAQ, or what?

@icematthew well, here are some ideas. I got a HS-1 headset from ASA for $75 a year ago, designed for airplanes (and this was refurbished btw), though with a little adapter (probably $10) you can use it with your iPod, computer etc for audio out…

Icematthew I love my beats by dre. I have the solo beats. I hate things inside my ears and these are a cooler version of the old school headphones my grandfather used to have. Check them out at best buy.
