Technology Gift Guide for the Holidays


During the holiday season it's always so hard to pick out those right presents for your family and friends. CNET.com has compiled a great list of technology gifts that won't break the bank! Check it out here!


I've also gone through the list and picked out which ones I think are the Top Four Must-Haves this year: 

1.     Amazon Fire TV Stick – My favorite!


    Fire TV Stick connects to your TV's HDMI port. It's an easy way to enjoy Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, YouTube.com, music, and much more
    ·         Powerful performance—4x the storage and 2x the memory of Chromecast, plus a dual-core processor and 1 GB of memory. Learn more
    ·         Massive selection—Over 200,000 TV episodes and movies, millions of songs, and hundreds of games. Learn more
    ·          Your partner in Prime—Enjoy unlimited access to more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video, including The HBO Collection, and original shows like Transparent and Alpha House, plus new Prime Music.
    ·         Instant streaming with ASAP—No more waiting for your movies and shows to buffer—ASAP learns what movies and shows you like so they start instantly.
    ·         Dedicated remote and app for easy use—With the Amazon Fire TV Remote that comes in the box or the free app on your Android device (iOS coming soon), you have all the controls you need to easily search, navigate, and play games.
    ·         Voice search that actually works—Simply say what you want to watch and start enjoying in seconds with the free app or Amazon Fire TV Voice Remote (sold separately).
    ·         Connect your small screen to your big screen— Fire TV Stick lets you fling your favorite apps to your TV to free up your small screen for other uses. Or mirror your phone or tablet to your TV. Learn more
    ·         Great for gaming, too—Play favorite titles like Flappy Birds Family, Toy Story: Smash It!, Monsters University, and more great games.
