#5 Electronic Newspaper
It’s not secret that the newspaper industry is struggling. Even still there seems to be hope. It’s called the Electronic Newspaper and it’s gaining popularity. Currently there are a variety of different models being developed. Even though some models are on the market we wouldn’t recommend buying them. Since, electronic newspapers worth buying aren’t currently one the market we’ll discuss a concept model that we found.
The concept model consists of a material that can display news electronically while being able to be bent without breaking. The news will display on the screen that can be refreshed simple by shaking the material. On top of that on the back of the screen is going to be advertisements. Every time you turn the newspaper over it changes the page. It’s an interesting concept and we hope to see more of it soon. Keep in mind that there is also an eReader that’s available that downloads the latest news from feeds. We’re going to be discussing eReaders later on.
#4 Apple Television
This little toy is small on size but big on entertainment. It allows you to rent television shows or movies without commercial interruption. With Apple television you can choose from thousands of titles and stream them directly to your television. Once you rent a movie you have thirty days to press play. After playing the video you can watch the show as much as you want for forty eight hours. The only problem is that you can accrue cost quickly. However if you want to watch a specific episode of your favorite season then this toy comes in handy. It’s not a great replacement for cable television.
The Apple Television can also connect to your home computer. Which means you’ll be able to stream all of your purchased music, your favorite YouTube videos, pod casts, movies, and more. As far as entertainment goes we think that Apple Television is going to be a big thing. The only thing we didn’t like about this gift suggestion is that it cost a few bucks. If you’re interested in learning more then you can find tons of information on the official Apple website.
#3 Global Positional Satellite Navigators
GPS systems are fast becoming a standard in all cars. The reason being is that they help people navigate a lot easier. Let’s face it, men never want to pull over there cars to ask for directions. Which is exactly why this makes the perfect gift. All you have to do is plug-in the directions of where you want to go then you’ll be given directions on your way there.

All you have to do is decide on which restaurant that you want. Hungry for Chinese? BBQ? It doesn’t matter you’ll be able to find anything at anytime.
#2 Smart Phones
If you don’t know what a smart phone is it’s simple. It’s a mobile phone that offers advanced computing ability and connectivity that a basic feature phone. Most of the time Smart Phones can be thought of as handheld computers. There are a variety of different Smart Phones like the Android, Apple iPhone, and Symbian. Smart Phones typically allow users to install and run advanced applications that you won’t find on basic phones.
Growth and demand for Smartphone technology has steadily grown over the years. One great example of a Smart Phone is the Apple iPhone. The iPhone allows people to download up to 4 Gigabytes of music, applications, and movies. On top of that some of the applications are entirely free. The Apple community has thousands of developers developing thousands of applications. After buying my iPhone I was able to download thousands of free game titles. It’s like the iPhone pays for itself.
EReaders are quickly becoming popular. Here’s why we wanted to recommend buying one. In our personal opinion we like eReaders because they’re reducing demand for pulp products. Which means they’re an environmental friendly source of information. If you don’t know what an eReader is it’s just a device that allows you to read publications in both an image and text form.
There are a variety of different eReaders available link the Nook and the Kindle. Out of all the models the Kindle seems to be the most popular. Depending on the model that you buy you can get free Wi-Fi access. Which means you’ll be able to connect to the internet and read news publications. The best thing about eReaders is that they can help you save on book titles. EBooks are usually priced a lot lower than their count part paperback publications.
