Option Two: E-Readers
This is a no brainer when you need to buy a gift for a techy nerd who is an avid reader. The question of how the person prefers to read comes to play. However, once you can ascertain their love for reading from any source then you have the perfect gift. Even though this is generally more expensive than the average book but the millions of free e-books available online and the incredibly low prices of electronic books makes it worth the price. If you are spoilt for choice, then go for an Amazon Kindle.
Option Three: 3-D TV
For a lot of people who did not see the need to buy a high definition TV, the 3-D feature was the final push needed to close the sale. Before you buy a 3-D TV for anyone, consider; Does it adversely have effect on them? You do not want to buy this for a person with motion sickness. Is this for a whole family or one person? Then you want to consider getting 3-D glasses to go with it and make sure the brand of glasses works with the TV you are considering. Which brand of TV is the best and most affordable for you?
Option Four: Smartphones
Almost everyone has caught the smartphone bug and they are updated every day with new versions always hitting the market. Before you buy a smartphone as a gift, you might want to consider the version the person has already and if their choice of mobile network supports that brand of phone.
Option Five: Video On-Demand
Whether you have a HD, LCD, LED or Plasma TV, is your TV connected to your internet connection at home? You can connect to stream live on YouTube or Netflix and other apps right there on your big screen.
It's that time of the year and you need to shop for gifts for everyone dear to you or not. Scrolling through your list, one person stands out. She is that one nerdy niece of yours whom you bought an iphone for last year only to discover, she was using three versions ahead.
Your techy game needs to be spot on this year and these are a few ideas of what and what not to buy. Option One: Tablet Computer This is basically an improved version or let me say a more functional version of an IPAD or a Samsung Galaxy Tab.
It is a computer that doesn't have a keyboard and instead of a mouse has a touch screen. The advantage it has over the regular IPAD, Tab or other computers is the ease with which you can carry out basic functions like typing on Microsoft Office and its portability.
For those people that still need the familiarity of having a keyboard to type especially writers like myself, detachable keyboards are now available to buy as accessories to the tablet computer.Read More
