Target, Best Buy Turn Gift Cards Into Literal Entertainment Devices

Instead of making giftcards worthless once they're emptied, Target and Best Buy have opted for the other extreme: With enough micro electronics, the gift cards themselves might be worth more than the merchandise they can buy.

Target's gift card is available as a tiny digital camera while Best Buy's card sings loud and clear as a speaker, complete with a 3.5mm jack to connect with an iPod, according to this Gearlog story.
