A tech pick for Sarah Palin: Leapfrog's Crammer

Leapfrog's pocket digital flashcard reader is now available for $59.99. It plays digital music as well.

Leapfrog's Crammer comes in multiple colors.

There's been a lot of talk about cramming for presidential and vice presidential debates these days, and now there's a device to help all the candidates out: Leapfrog's digital flashcard gizmo, the Crammer, is officially available now.

True, the Crammer ($59.99) is being targeted toward kids between the ages of 8 and 13 (3rd to 8th grade), but I say you're never too old to use a cramming aid. Oh, and it has a headphone jack, plays music (there's 8GB of built-in memory), and has a couple of basic games onboard.

The Crammer is both Mac and Windows compatible and you upload content to the pocket-size device via its USB port using the LeapFrog Connect Application. According to Leapfrog, "more than 16,000 mathematics, social studies, and science questions, based on leading textbooks, are only a touch away using Crammer's sleek click-screen--at no additional cost." And, as an added bonus, LeapFrog throws in a Spanish translator. Not bad for $60.
