The holiday shopping rush is already in full gear, and who better to get some high-tech hints from than Daybreak's gadget guru Steve Greenberg.

Greenberg tipped us off on places to find unbelievable deals for Cyber Monday, and now he's back to prove that good things can come in small packages.


My Appy Petz: My Appy Petz are the most expressive, huggable pets you can have. Collect all four: Appy Monster, Appy Puppy, Appy Pony and Appy Bear. On their own, they are fun and cuddly, but add the magic of your iTouch or iPhone, and they come to life right before your very eyes. There's so much you can do and share with your My Appy Petz, including sing a song, feed them, speak silly phrases, give them kisses, play games, make them dizzy and take care of them morning, noon, and night. Enjoy and explore the world of My Appy Petz everywhere you go, and know that your favorite Petz is with you all the time. $19.99

The information is captured in a tiny device that is wirelessly synced to your FitBit web account so that you can track your trends and set fitness goals online or on the Fitbit App. Fitbit also has a lot of tools to keep you on track such as logging food, connecting with friends and family for a little friendly competition, and even earning fitness badges. $99.95
