- Fun Stuff
Everyone loves a new toy now and then, even big “kids.” Whether it’s a new car, a new television, or a new phone, there is probably something out there that could be just what you need to make life easier and more fun. Just because the holiday shopping season is over doesn’t mean you can’t get yourself a little something. Here are a few new and improved gadgets you have to see to believe:
Not Just a Regular Phone
Smartphones are amazing. Everything is at your fingertips. What makes our cool phones even more desirable are the accessories you can get for them. There are classy, vintage, or modern docking stations, speakers, skins and covers, or headphones that promote your personal style.
Phones can be used for so much, the scary thing would be losing your phone. Be sure to set up a phone finder online (there are a number of apps available for all smartphones) that uses GPS or the phone’s data network to locate where you lost your precious phone. In addition, you may want to invest in an emergency phone that runs on a double “A” battery, just in case.
Versatility of Laptops
Not only are laptops the best in powerful portability, but they are also becoming more functional, sleek, and light. A laptop is perfect for the office. If you’re not quite finished with work, you can conveniently take it all home. You could also create a profile for every member of your family on your business laptop, so that they can easily go to their favorite sites without getting into your work.
Laptops are also a comfortable option with their large screens and full keyboards. They make it easy to work from wherever you feel comfortable. They also are a good choice for a new college student. So depending on your specific needs, a laptop could be a great bet.
A Keyboard for the Clumsy
Who doesn’t work or surf the web with a snack in hand these days? We’re all bound to have an accident with our keyboard at least once in our lives. If you always have to have a drink at your desk at work then you need to look into getting a washable keyboard. Even stay-at-home moms need not worry if the kids have liquid nearby.
It’s a wonderful thing to be able to watch a movie no matter where you are. You can easily set up a portable streaming movie projector and get comfortable with your favorite television series or blockbuster movie. The options are endless because of linking capabilities. Other great features are long battery life and good sound quality. And, best of all, depending on what model you want, some of them are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Tablets and Beyond
Whether you want a new Ereader or you’re interested in a 10 in. tablet for movie watching on your long commute, do your homework before you buy. There are so many different brands out there and you need to decide what you will use it for the most. Invest in a case for protection. There are styles and colors, not to mention contraptions that let you position it in several different ways. Some protective cases come with handle or strap, which is helpful for the kiddies.
