When it comes to tech, every passing year seems to outdo the last, and certainly, 2016 is no exception. This year, we’ve got everything from tablets, smart phones and computers to fancy head phones and cozy tech for your home. Let’s get started.
Streaming Gadgets Smart TVs
These days, few people have actual cable contracts for their TVs, and instead, they rely on streaming outlets, such as Amazon Video and Netflix. But to be able to watch these outlets on your television instead of just on your smart phone, tablet or computer, you’ve got to have another gadget. Roku is out with a new version this year and so is Amazon Fire. By far, these are the newest and most popular streaming devices on the market this year.
Computers and Tablets
Of course, you can’t have a tech guide for the new year without talking about computers, and we’ve got lots to talk about. We’ve also got some new tablets on the horizon as well. If you’re not familiar with the world of tablets, these are like large smart phones, but they’re almost as big as regular laptops for computers.
This year, the big thing is the computer and tablet hybrid. In this case, you can touch the screen of the hybrid and maneuver with it like it’s a smart phone or tablet, but you also have a keyboard, USB connectors and other classic features that you would normally see on a full-blown computer or laptop.
Head phones are important for us all. Whether we need them while walking to the store or when working on music or editing, the bigger and nicer, the better. This year, wireless headphones that cover the ear are all the rage. You’ll also see that the wireless head phones you’re used to will have better battery power than ever too.
Home audio has gotten way more up to date as well. It used to be that you had to make tons of money to be able to have a music or streaming system in your house, but today, it’s easier than ever. With new streaming techniques, you can listen to music as soon as you walk in the door as a movement activated system, and you can even program the music in an entirely different room.
Finally, don’t forget that with all of these brand new tech items, you’ve surely got to shop around in order to find the best deals. For most people, the best deals are going to be online, but you can certainly find most of the items listed in this article in brick and mortar stores as well. You just might have to do a little shopping around.
