Top Christmas tech 2011

What do you think the best technology of 2011 has been?

What is your favourite bit of tech from 2011 that will be making its way onto your Christmas list? That is if you don’t already have it!

This year has been a really busy one for the tech industry, it would seem that every year, the technology industry gains more pace and steams on ahead. For a great example of this look at cloud computing, this is an industry that has been around and major for less than 5 years, yet it is also an industry that has exploded.

Out of this industry, new firms like SugarSync and Rackspace have emerged, proving to be very profitable. In addition to this, existing firms like Google and Amazon have widened their inventory with the likes of the Chromebook and Amazon’s Web Services.

So, back to the topic in hand…

This year has seen the launch of the iPhone 4 and later the iPhone 4S, LG’s and Panasonic’s new HD and 3D TV sets, the iPad 2, Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Chromebooks, Nintendo’s 3DS, the 6th generation of theΒ iPod Nano, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the HTC Sensation 4G, and many many more bits of cool tech.

Google Chromebook, Amazon Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Apple iPhone 4, Nintendo 3DSThe thing is which is the best? Which tops your Christmas list?

Given the chance I would love to at least try all of the above, but that’s not going to happen for one simple reason: money. The value of all the new bits of tech released this year mentioned above, is probably around the Β£5,000 mark, meaning that the average Joe is not going to be able to afford them all. This leads me onto another question, which is best value for money?

I have heard a lot of praise for the Kindle, as being very good value for money, whilst a lot of bad PR surrounding the 3D TV’s mentioned.

So, the questions. What’s your favourite, and why? Which do you think best value for money and do you want any for Christmas?

Hopefully next year with a bit of growth, we will be able to have a competition to win some/all of the above! Stick with it πŸ˜‰

Peter,

I have been wondering about the Macbook Air. I have a few friends who picked one up and love it. It’s the speed and lightweight that are appealing to me, even though I like Macs in general so I’m probably not all that hard to convince.

I will check out your Top Gadgets article as well!

Thanks Christopher for a nice wrap-up post πŸ˜€

My favorite are iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as it reminds me of Steve “the legend” Jobs. And cloud-computing is an interesting topic as well. I can see it’s expanding its branches quick!

A good choice Daniela πŸ™‚

I think the best tech this year has been the Kindle Fire. Say what you want about the uninspiring look of the thing, it’s been a pretty solid hit for Amazon. If it does what Amazon is hoping for it’s going to keep them selling ebooks for years. For $200 you get an almost iPad like device with books, games, internet surfing, and connection to one of the worlds largest ebook, music, and merchandise sellers. I bought my wife one of these and she loves it. I’d still rather have an iPad if given the choice but i wouldn’t give a Kindle Fire back if someone gave it to me for free. It’s a lot of fun.

The Kindle Fire has made a big impact on many people, and as you say John, they can make great gifts!
