Christmas Gadgets: Beyond The iPad
Consumer electronics are increasingly popular gifts. This Christmas, you have lots of options–not just the iPad or Xbox 360 Kinect hands-free console controller.
Here we take you through some other gadgets that may be high on your loved-ones’ wish lists.
Ultimate Ears 350
You can use these noise-isolating earphones from Logitech with iPods, portable music players, laptops and DVD players. They’re advertised as ideal for hip-hop, house and electronic music.
Nikon COOLPIX S1000pj
This is a new digital camera that comes equipped with a large touch-panel monitor as well as its own projector. A great option for those who like to share slideshows while they’re on-the-go.
This new offering – which you can use with Sony and Logitech hardware – is an exciting look at the future. It brings the web to your TV. Note: not all reviews have been favorable.
The newest generation of the iPod has a touch screen and access to thousands of fun applications. That makes it akin to a laptop you can carry in your pocket.
DeLonghi 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker
This gift offers a different type of entertainment: One you can taste. It is advertised as “simple” and “convenient,” and “mixes steam and milk to create a rich creamy froth” for your cappuccino.
