Go With 4G
Nothing but the best
The latest phones out are 4G gadgets. 3G is so yesterday (even though it's ultra cool and way beyond what anyone ever dreamed possible!). They can do everything from taking High Definition movies to video texting. There's no end to the technology these Smartphones have inside them. You'll want to read reviews to catch up on the latest releases.
If you really want to surprise a techie, read the latest reviews from the 2015 Consumer Electronics online. They list every type of cell phone, laptop, tablet and camera that just hit the market.
Apple iPad Air 2
Tablets with taste
I think we all heard when Apple introduced the famous first iPad. The Apple iPad Air 2 is the very latest in technology now days. It measures 9.4 x 6.6 inches, and comes in at just under 16 ounces (hence the name, iPad 'Air'). It also comes equipped with Touch ID and Apple Pay, the latest in technology when it comes to security and commerce!
You can also get a full ten hours out of your battery and it's come down to around $499. You can hold the world in your hand now. These are great executive gifts for men, because they are very handy to have at conferences and other business events.
For phone lovers, there's one that's just got to be on the list for birthday gifts (or holiday gifts, whichever occasion you are shopping for here.) The Apple iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus) is the very up to the minute latest item.

It runs on 4G and has HD everything. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7" retina HD display, while the iPhone 6 Plus has a little bit bigger, 5.5" retina HD display. The newly developed camera has a wide range of features including 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1.5 pixels, auto-focus, timer mode, exposure control and more.
What more could you even ask for?
Still in style
Rated the #1 pick when it comes to laptops by LaptopMag.com, the Dell XPS 13 comes in with an impressive set of applications.
For starters, it is one of the thinnest on the market and weighs only 2.8 pounds! This is important if the guy in your life needs to transport the laptop constantly, you will save his back (and shoulders) the strain of carrying around a heavy load!
The Dell XPS 13 also comes with a Core i5 processor and SSD for fast and efficient performance. This version of the laptop will only run you $799 - and there is also a touch-screen version as well if he's interested in going that route!
Because we all love those
And finally, for the TV junkie, there's the newest and greatest in technology. At the top of the chain, Vizio offers a wide variety of televisions with tons of different impressive specs. What most consumers love about Vizio TV's is that they are not only great products, but they are affordable as well. If for whatever reason, you don't want to go with Vizio, a great alternative that has a proven track record is Panasonic. Models will change constantly so be sure to look up reviews and reports before you choose one to purchase.

Gifts for geeks who love gadgets are not so hard to find. Just be sure you're getting the latest model and that you really look for the freshest technology. You don't want to buy yesterday's phone with a new case. You want innovation and a whole new world. Scout around online and in electronics stores and you just may be surprised at the kind of gadgets that are out there for the choosing. If all else fails, just gift him a personalized beer mug, men love that kind of thing!
