Plan on being in the car with the little ones on Christmas Eve? If so, are you an OnStar subscriber? Then you’ll want to hit that blue OnStar button and ask for a Santa update, because OnStar is teaming up with NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) to keep tabs on Santa’s location as all times through the evening. Oh, what’s that? You find that to be almost as ridiculous as the Necky?
Hey, we agree, but let’s not let the silliness of this promotion get in the way of…no, you’re right. It’s silly. Silly enough that we want to try it.
Kids are fairly sophisticated these days, but even the oldest still believes in the Claus. Since 1996, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense) has been tracking Santa online. Last year the site received over 10 million visitors worldwide. Now you can follow his journey on your iPhone, T-Mobile G1, BlackBerry, Nokia or Windows Mobile Phone by using Google Maps for mobile by searching “norad santa” beginning 6 a.m. Eastern time December 24. Put the official Santa site on your favorites to keep track of the countdown.

Ever wonder what Santa does in his spare time (which, let’s face it, he has lots of)? Well apparently, he’s been taking drumming lessons, allegedly from the Little Drummer Boy, but we digress. Anyway, his enviable talents are finally on display via the USB Drumming Santa Claus. Just plug the cord into your USB port and…you guessed it…he starts drumming away to one of 5 built-in Christmas tunes. Plus, blue LED lights flash away to the beat of his drums. Love it! An adorable holiday gift or get one for yourself to decorate your cubicle and
entertain your co-workers. Available for $18 USD. If Santa’s not your cup of cocoa, check out the equally talented USB Drumming Snowman instead….
