Our Holiday Gadget Gift Guide

Thursday, December 05, 2013
If you're looking for a few gift ideas, we've once again put together our staff picks for the best gadgets of the season.

Tile: The world's largest lost and found. This is a Bluetooth device you attach to items you may lose such as keys, a bike, a laptop case, backpack, etc. It uses sound to alert if you’re nearby and gives you the last known location. If you’re out of range, it uses crowdsourcing (other people who have the app on their device and are within 150’ of your tile) to help you locate it.

Google Chromecast: Everything you love. Now on your tv. Only $35 and allows iPhone, iPad, Android, and Chrome to send media to a TV with an HDMI port. It supports Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and other services.

Innergie PocketCell Rechargeable Portable Battery or HALO 2800mAH Pocket Power Charger: Universal mobile batteries. Both provide power to all USB powered devices such as phones and tablets on the go so that a wall cord is not needed while traveling.

FitBit: Small gift. Big impact. This is a wireless tracker that tracks steps and calories burned and syncs to any smartphone automatically - an effortless way to keep track of your activity and calories burned.

BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Earbud Headphones: These headphones by Plantronics feature Bluetooth technology which allows for audio streaming from any Bluetooth device. Wireless ear buds are a great gift for someone who stays active and enjoys listening to music but does not want to deal with the hassle of plugging in or untangling headphones. 

Mophie Powerstation: This power station is similar to the portable batteries mentioned however this option is more heavy duty with a battery capacity of 4000mAh. This product is slightly larger than most other portable power chargers but work great for power hungry tablets or any USB device. 

Nest Protect: This device tells you when there is a problem in your home. It uses human voices to tell you what the problem is and what you should do. Problems that it detects are smoke, carbon monoxide, heat sensor, ambient light, humidity and three activity sensors. The Nest Protect also alerts you via the Nest app, available on any smartphone.

Epic Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard: This virtual keyboard laser projects a full size keyboard onto any flat surface. This compact device even simulates key click sounds as you type. It is Bluetooth enabled and is compatible with tablets and smartphones.

Slingbox: Never miss live tv again. This gives you the ability to watch and control your own TV from anywhere with any smartphone, tablet, or TV. Even when you’re not home, Slingbox lets you watch live and local channels right from your tablet or smartphone. This is a perfect gift for a sports fan, a frequent traveler, or anyone on the go.
So tell us, what's on your holiday wish list this year?
