Season's Greeting, marine electronics style

I do enjoy the odd array of holiday cards, digital and otherwise, that I receive from the marine electronics industry each year. An image of animated snow (you may have to click on thumbnail above) seen on a beautiful KEP Marine monitor is joyful...

And so is the thought of a Christmas tree decorated with AMEC AIS devices...

And no enthusiast should miss the extravagant art work and satire EchoPilot puts into its annual holiday card, as seen below (fortunately the detailed description of the Punishment 72 was also captured in high res). I've had fun with marine electronics holiday cards in the past, but never thought to invite submissions. If there's an electronics-themed card that caught your fancy, please send an image I might add to this entry (contact info on the recently revised About Page). 
    And of course here's wishing a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Joeux Noel, Happy Kwanzaa,  Happy Festivus, and/or a wonderful Christmakkah (as we call it here at HQ).  Be well, and may visions of marine electronics dance in your heads.

Don't forget our Christmas present of DragQueen in the Apple app store for free. Android and source is coming in early 2012!

DragQueen looks neat, Jeff. Thanks!

Maybe also worth noting is that Woot has declared today "Jobsmas Eve" and is offering the 21.5-inch iMac i5 at a bit of a discount: http://goo.gl/HvtfU
