Earlier this week, NPR's Day to Day featured something we hope to get in our Christmas stocking this year: the TrafficGauge.

A PDA-sized real time wireless traffic map? As Xeni Jardin said during her piece, "It's like having a psychic friend." How lovely would it be to know whether or not it's going to take you twenty minutes or an hour and a half to go from the west side to Hollywood? Or to know if you can brave the 405 to get to and from work today?

At only $79.95 for the unit and $7 for the monthly data service, it seems like the perfect gift for your friends, family and neighbors prone to road rage.
