NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – First out of the stocking a streaming video player. Amazon’s Fire Stick is a great way to watch movies and TV shows without cable or satellite.
It plugs into a TV and offers a wide variety of movies and shows from Amazon Prime, Netflix and others.
Control what you want to watch with an included remote, a smartphone app, or Alexa. Be aware though that after the first of the year, Google won’t allow YouTube to be played with a Fire Stick.
One of the new Google Home minis will fit in here too. This is Google’s version of an Amazon Echo Dot.
A personal assistant that plays music, answers questions and controls many smart home devices just by asking.
This smartphone keyboard, the iClever, connects to any smartphone through Bluetooth.
It’s about the size of a smartphone but folds out to a fairly decent sized keyboard to make typing out notes or emails easier.
It has a trackpad and can connect to 3 devices at once.
Most everyone runs out of space on their smartphone because of photos.
The iXpand USB drive from SanDisk connects to a phone or tablets firewire port where you can download every photo from your phone.
Save them on the iXpand and delete the photos on the phone to make room for more.
The photos can be moved to a computer through an app.
No one would expect a toothbrush in the stocking. The Kolibree Ara “smart” toothbrush monitors how well the kids are brushing.
The device tracks how long they brushed, which teeth they missed, and has games to encourage them to brush longer and better.
A stocking is the best place to hide the best gift because they won’t suspect it, and you don’t necessarily have to wrap it.
