Top tech Christmas gifts
Trying to select a best tech Christmas gift was never easy. Maybe these few suggestions will help you find the right tech gadget as a Christmas gift.
Tech Christmas gifts are usually bought for men but we are living in a 21st century and a nice tech gadget can be a great present for ladies too. Here is my selection of top tech gifts you can buy this Christmas.
Although Fire has lower technical specs than competing Nook, it is $50 cheaper, actually faster, and more responsive in everyday use. 7-inch diagonal and full color is perfect for all your e-Book reading and Amazon silk is perfect for all your internet-browsing needs. Multimedia capabilities of Fire are great and combined with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and more you will never exhaust its endless supply of movies, apps, games and music. Kindle Fire is simply one of the best tech holiday gifts you can imagine.
Roku LT Streaming Player
Buying a new HD TV set might be a little too much, but this small gadget can bring you a completely new world of entertainment to your home. Supporting hundreds of channels with movies, TV shows, music, all in high-definition streaming will keep you glued to your TV for hours on an end. Roku’s built-in wireless allows you to easily use services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO GO, Crackle, EPIX and even Amazon Instant Video. Roku LT is one of the best multimedia tech gifts under $50 you can find.
How does 24x optical zoom sound to you? With 12.1 mega-pixels sensor and integrated optical image stabilization, this digital camera will perfectly capture those fun Christmas moments. Not only will you be able to capture perfect photos, this camera is able to record full HD (1080p) video with up to 60 frames per second. If you love slow motion, you can record some crazy videos with up to 220 frames per second (although in QVGA resolution). Thanks to the Panasonic’s Venus Engine, you will be able to take great high-speed action photos with a minimum of noise and blurring. Capability of taking 3D photos is one feature you might not really need, however it is present in this camera. I have been a great fan of Panasonic cameras from the first moment they implemented a POWER O.I.S. (optical image stabilization) in their cameras. Whoever manages to get hold of this excellent sub-$500 camera will never regret it.
Celestron NexStar 130 SLT Computerized Telescope
Want a big gift? Well this one is both big and certain to bring out the inner child in everybody. How many times have you looked up at the stars above? Well, now you can both look up and figure out what are you actually looking at. Perfect for clear nights, this computerized telescope will find over 4,000 stars, planets, and galaxies with a push of a button. Although this little gadget first appeared in 2005, it is still perfect for viewing deep space objects like star clusters like M13 or Orion Nebula. Of course, moon looks just surreal when viewed through this telescope. For this small price, you will not be able to find any scope with better optics and software.
Nike+ SportWatch GPS Powered by TomTom
If you are looking for a present for anybody who is fun of watches and tech gadgets, you can really go no wrong with this little marvel. Nike, in a partnership with TomTom, brings the latest Nike Plus system that weighs only 2.33 ounces. This great watch can track your run and download that information using USB port built into the watchband.

Nike+ SportWatch tracks your time, distance, pace, heart rate and calories burned. It also features a great option to remind you that you are slacking and have not run in a long time. A rechargeable battery provides eight hours of run time with both the GPS and sensor turned on. This is one great looking gift with many great features.
