Top Electronic Holiday Gifts
Electronics are always a popular gift during the holidays and never disappoint. And there’s no shortage of options. Should you buy a tablet the kids? 4k TV for your man? New smartphone for your lady?
To help out, here are my favorite electronic gifts!
Let’s first start with my number 1 top pick: the Amazon Echo and Amazon Tap.
The Amazon Echo has been out now for a little while. Considering the price, its feature list is impressive. Basically, it’s a bluetooth speaker and voice activated computer all in one. Yes. Mind. Blown.
- Bluetooth speaker with great sound
- Voice controlled, even from across the room
- Also plays from Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, and more
- Can control smart home electronics and power outlets
- Able to provide a variety of online information via voice command
After initially using the mobile app to configure it, you can use voice commands to have Echo control any lighting, electronics, or other smart home devices that you have installed. It also plays music from Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, and of course any bluetooth device.
It really is amazing. To fully appreciate it, you just need to go to Amazon’s page and read about it yourself.
A mobile option with a rechargeable batter is the Echo’s cousin the Amazon Tap. It has the same great features but it also adds the mobility as most bluetooth speakers have.
There are also a variety of cases that you can buy to protect it, and the design seems to be a little more rugged to handle the frequent moving.
The Amazon Dot is the Voice Activated part of the Echo, minus the speaker. I enjoy having the Amazon Dot to connect to my surround sound stereo system and make it voice controlled.
