Batteries not Included

I'm seeing at least one effect of the slowing economy...
This year, when purchasing Christmas gifts, I noticed that none of the gadgets came with replaceable batteries.

Last year, all the toys were "Batteries Included." That makes sense since many toys have demo modes that can be activated on the store shelves.

I don't think I'm buying significantly different sorts of gifts this year, but they all had the "Batteries not Included" label.

Personally, I use rechargeable batteries for pretty much everything, so I had to make a special trip for disposable batteries so that all the toys will function when unwrapped.
