Looking For Last Minute Techie Gifts?
As you may know I have an Amazon fire TV stick, a Roku Ultra, a Google Chromecast, and the generic Android video streamer. So, I’m not hurting when it comes to video streaming devices! I can highly recommend both the Roku and the Fire TV stick! For most folks either one of these will be a good choice for Christmas presents if you have folks that don’t yet have these technologies. If you’re looking for a good price on a casual streamer I would recommend the Google Chromecast… It doesn’t have all the options of the Roku or the FireTV stick, but it works really well to cast video from your laptop or computer, or even your phone or tablet, to your TV!
Either way, as last-minute gifts, a streaming device is a good choice!
Engadget – “Unless the person on your list already owns a smart TV, media streamers are almost fool-proof as far as gift ideas go, and they’re reasonably affordable too. We put several in our holiday gift guide, including the Apple TV 4K at the high end and the Roku Ultra, which is nearly half the price. Rounding out the list, we recommend this universal remote from Logitech (though the company’s cheaper models are solid, too). And, if you have the means to gift a TV (whether to yourself or someone else), we included two models in different price ranges.”
