Top tech for Christmas 2018
With Thanksgiving done for the year, the holiday season is spicing up – Christmas is right around the corner! Have you decided what gifts you are getting yet? Or have you told friends and family what gift you would like to receive? Here is a list of the top tech we think you may be interested in for this upcoming holiday season. Whether you’re a tech lover or shopping for someone who enjoys tech, this list may help you find the perfect gift.
More than likely you probably already have a smartphone (but maybe you know someone who needs a new one?). However, full screen smartphones are taking the market and the iPhone X and the Google Pixel are amazing phones for their camera, speed, and smooth, high-tech appearance.
If you're like me, you use your computer for more than coding. Playing games on a laptop gives the advantage of both worlds, whether you’re a Fortnite player or playing Minecraft. Additionally, the mobility of a laptop is a massive plus for me.
Tablets are nice for coffee table Internet searches, small gaming devices, or just on-the-go Internet usage with a larger screen then your phone. Both Apple iPad and Android tablets are great, and if you're looking for a cheaper but powerful tablet, I would suggest an Amazon Fire HD.
Smart speakers are nice if you're in the kitchen and need some quick recipe help, want to change the thermostat setting of your home’s heating system, and/or you just need someone to speak to. There are a few to choose from, and offer particular features depending on the device, but ultimately, they offer the convenience of hand-free voice feedback.
Smart TVs have been around for a while now but are a nice convenience for those who want the whole package in one. Smart TVs are meant to be connected to the internet and provide services like Netflix, Pandora and event Skype for conferences/voice calls, all from your TV.
With the rise of gaming desktops/laptops, gaming consoles are slowly fading. However, gaming devices will always be among the most favorable for Christmas gifts. Regardless of gaming console, most consoles play the same games. And a lot of consoles now allow cross platform game play.
Smart watches are a nice way of checking notifications, messages, and calls without having your phone close by or having that extra added weight to the pocket. It may be just a fad, but the conveniences and look-ability of a smart watch make it totally worth it.
