Steve Jobs will definitely be missed, and today's 2011 Holiday Gift Guide entry honors his memory, while also helping a great cause. What you see above is the GeeksRiot Steve Jobs Tribute t-shirt. All proceeds from the $25 purchase go towards Movember and the fight against cancer. Aside from all that, though, the shirt looks ridiculously cool. Seriously, we've seen 'em in person, and they're high quality. Go check them out, and grab a couple for the Apple fans in your life!
I know, the title is a little mundane; it was either that or ‘how to torture others with your terrible taste in music’ but that wasn’t very product-descriptive. Not only can you use this shirt, complete with embedded speaker and pocket-remote, as an attempt to turn yourself into Jack Spade from ‘I’m Gonna Get You, Sucka!’ but you can also use their pre-loaded sound-effects to pepper your work-day with fart noises and boing-boings. It’s all your choice. Only $30 and 4AAA batteries and you’re off to the very annoying races.

Based on research from the Univ. of Connecticut and Under Armour, the suit could be available by July for ~$200.00 for both pieces.

If you already own a T-Equalizer shirt, then you will be pleased to know that it is now available in a baseball cap. Powered by two included 2 CR2032 batteries, they are hidden away in the lining of the back of the head wear. In a one size fits all, a sensor allows adjustment for loud and soft environments. While we expect that the hat will be more popular with those who can actually see it, take comfort in the fact that for £12.95 (~$21.00) you were the one who was smart enough to purchase it first.
