The Free Software Foundation has updated its annual "Ethical Tech Giving Guide" for buying technology products their holiday season.

If you're expecting shiny new, latest-generation hardware to be on the list, sadly we're not really there nor with any products to appeal to general (non-FLOSS advocate) consumers. It's just the usual endorsements of FSF's list of refuribhsed laptops with running the Coreboot-derived Libreboot and their endorsed Trisquel Linux distribution, a smart-phone running the blob-free Replicant Android OS, getting classic free ebooks from Project Gutenberg, etc.
