Product Round-up Two days from today falls Halloween - the last day of October and the time when ghouls and ghosts, witches and demons are said to haunt the land, chilly fingers reach out to you as you climb the wooden hill, and Apple fans go out dressed up as iPhones.

To help you celebrate this most spooky of seasons, we've gathered together a selection of Halloween themed and colour-schemed gizmos and gadgets to bright - or darken - your day, and make your party go with a bang. And prove popular with your guests.

Fire Orange Apple iPod Nano 8GB

Tarnished only by its lack of video playback - no watching blood-curdling horror films while your partner lies a-slumber beside you - but lifted by its shrunken head-like compact size and tap, tap tap touchscreen, the metal-cased iPod Nano has to be the ideal music player for the Halloween season. Especially when you have a choice of seasonal green, orange and Product (blood) Red. The inclusion of a dock connector means the Nano is compatible with a host of speaker sets, readying the Nano to play out loud spooky sound effects all night long to scare the Trick-or-Treaters away...

Jack O' Lantern Orange Sony Vaio P

P for 'pumpkin'? This mini laptop certainly comes in a suitably lurid orange hue, though a particularly fluorescent green is also an option if your Halloween colour scheme favours the slimy.

Highlights include built-in 3G HSDPA connectivity and support for the PlayStation 3's remote play technology - ideal to engage in a little zombie decapitation at a distance.

The Vaio P comes with 64GB of hard drive storage, 2GB of DDR 2 storage and an old-style Atom Z530 processor clocked to 1.86GHz - so the spec is suitably cobwebby even if the P's outer shell isn't. The P's Quick Web key, however, has nothing arachnid about it...
