25 <h2> Are you giving your loved ones holiday gifts they can use freely, or gifts which put someone else </h2>
26
27 <p>
28 Electronics are popular gifts for the holidays, but
29 people often overlook the restrictions that
30 manufacturers slip under the wrapping paper. Companies
31 like Microsoft and Apple can and will use Digital
32 Restrictions Management (DRM) to
33 prevent your loved ones from sharing apps on the
34 laptop you got them or remixing the songs on their
35 expensive new iPad. If the recipient of your gift
36 is as unlucky as one woman last year,
37
38 <a href="http://www.defectivebydesign.org/node/2250">
39 Amazon might even block all the books on their
40 Kindle and refuse to explain why
41 </a>.
42
43 Companies want us to accept this kind of intrusive
44 control, but when you think about, it's unethical
45 (and annoying!).
46 </p>

48 <h2>Give freely</h2>
49
50 <p>
51 The good news is, for every device that uses DRM or
52 has a remote "kill switch" like the Kindle, ethical
53 companies have made a better one that doesn't, one
54 that your loved ones will be free to enjoy however
55 they wish. Here's a list of these smarter gifts,
56 compared with their more well-known, but more
57 restrictive alternatives. While you're reading, please
58 remember that donating to a charity in your friend or
59 family member's name is at least as meaningful as
60 buying them an electronic device. Some of our favorite
61 charities are the
