It's almost Christmas, haven't you heard? And if you aren't quite ready for the holidays, there's really no better way to get there than by picking up a new Kindle Fire and a set of iGloLEDset lights. Basically, these wireless Christmas tree lights can be wirelessly controlled through Amazon's white-hot new e-reader / tablet hybrid, enabling you to pause after Chapter 14 and adjust the tree mood. It's better shown in video, and thankfully, we have one of those just below. The lights are $299, but if that sounds a little pricey, just wait until the 26th to see what happens on the MSRP.

In fact Id argue that it was horrible. Why would I pay that much for LED lights?

That's cool but not really that useful.

That pretty neat, despite what was said above... Have you seen how much some people put in to Christmas decorations? I would love to have this if i can afford it but i also don't have a kindle :D

The interesting thing to me is that I can now control something as I would with a full size PC from something 1/4" thick and relatively handheld with relative ease and generally inexpensively. Whereas say 4 years ago something like this would have been relatively expensive and therefore out of the reach of many. Now it is what $199.00, I mean "REALLY" that is incredible really, as is or are the speeds at which technology moves today.
