If you think a compilation of your Mp3 songs is just a bit too lame as a gift you could give it a nice extra personal touch with this talking CD case. For about $5,- you can record a personal message on pre.vu
that will be integrated in a CD case. It's also possible to record your message with a phone call. Your message can be up to 60 seconds so use them wisely. With a push of a button on the front of the CD case the message will be played and it's supposedly good for hundreds of uses. Don't expect the battery to last for years though but it's the thought, or in this case the message, that counts.
