Hot gadgets paired with the perfect accessories and “noobie-friendly” support make gifts they’ll use and love

November 15, 2008 (Greenwood, Ind.)—Consumers can save time on gift buying, and returning, this holiday season by choosing all-inclusive bundles featuring some of the season’s hottest gadgets and gear. Noobie Bundles include popular technology gifts, like digital cameras, iPods and GPS navigators that come with all the noobie-friendly accessories and support recipients will need to enjoy their gifts right out of the box. Shoppers can learn more about the bundles and get free shipping at http://www.noobie.com/bundles.

“Product manuals have so much detail and information that it’s often impossible to find the instructions you need to get started now,” said Patric Welch, owner and founder of Noobie. “That’s why Noobie Bundles come with simple, step-by-step guides to doing the basics with your new gift.”

Quick Start Guides that come with Noobie Bundles will help eliminate frustration and prevent post-holiday gift returns because a product was “too confusing.”

“When you give technology gadgets as a gift, the real value to the recipient is in how they are able to use it to enhance their everyday life,” said Welch. “You want them to enjoy the gift right away without a lot of hassle.”

In addition to Quick Start Guides, Noobie Bundles also include up to one hour of free telephone support with a Noobie Coach. Gift recipients can use this time to get one-on-one help with their new gadget or explore more advanced features and set-up options.

“When you receive a new digital camera, you want to point and shoot before precious moments pass,” said Welch. “Next, and equally important, you want to quickly and easily share those images by posting, printing or e-mailing them. You’re not going to get that kind of help from a camera manufacturer or a big box retailer.”
