Outsmarting The Boy is one of my hobbies.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Yamaha. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every year, The Boy thinks that he knows exactly what he's getting for Christmas. That's usually because every year The Boy knows exactly what he's getting for Christmas, which happens as a result of The Boy asking for very few items, and Sweetie being unable to keep a secret for even a few microseconds.

This year, The Boy THINKS he's getting a few small things -- some movies on DVD and games and a couple of shirts -- and is feeling smug because he's got the idea that he's figured us out.

But I've got a surprise in store for him: The Yamaha PDX-60.

No, that's not a new 'droid in the latest Star Wars cartoon; it's the best way to play movies on iPods and get high-quality sound from anywhere in the room.

The Yamaha PDX-60 Speaker Dock uses the "yAired" (tm) wireless technology to give no-delay high quality, deep bass sound from any iPod (or iPhone) located anywhere in the room. It's a speaker system like no other, making it feel like you're there, live, in concert with Pink Floyd or Nine Inch Nails or whoever it is The Boy is listening to these days.

The Boy uses his iPod incessantly: he buys digital movies and watches them on it, and he's got it loaded up with all the music I can't stand but which he loves -- like the aformentioned Pink Floyd, which I USED TO like before he played it nonstop. But that means that he'll get a kick out of the PDX-60, because he can enjoy sound quality that blows away the tinny computer speakers we have, or his headphones; it even comes with a remote, so he can skip through or replay songs and parts of movies without getting up and going to the iPod itself.

As for me, I get TWO thrills out of it: I get to surprise The Boy, who only THINKS he knows what he's getting, and also, I get to have him go back to listening to his music in his room rather than on my computer.
