17 December 2012

We've already rounded-up the best Christmas buys for him - as well as for us fashion lovers - but now it's the turn of Lady Geek. The switched-on tech gurus and authors of Little Miss Geek know how to make technology accessible AND interesting for women so who better to bring us a last-minute list of the top tech treats we'd love to find under the tree...

1. Samsung Galaxy Note II

1. Samsung Galaxy Note II

This yuletide I’ve come over all artistic, and got my eye on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a gorgeous phone with a massive screen and intelligent touch-pen. Its software should  let me edit all my family Xmas photos so that, for once, they might be vaguely respectable.Failing that you can help me up my photography game by winging a Manfrotto Photography Case for iPhone my way. Clipping onto your phone, the neutral flash lets you take low-light photos without making everyone look like Casper the Ghost.

While we’re at it, you might as well send along a Joby griptight Gorillapod Stand, a super-flexible tripod for smartphones that can be used for practically anything, from taking steady films and photos to turning your phone into a makeshift sat-nav or clock radio.

3. Clocky

Speaking of clock-radios, one of my new years resolutions is to get up earlier - you can help me change my ways with the adorable Clocky, the alarm clock that runs away from you as you try to turn it off, forcing you to get out of bed. It should really up my productivity, if I don’t end up smashing it first.

2013 is the year I do away with clutter. I’d love a Samsung Chromebook: the no-frills, super-secure Google-based laptop that lets you do everything online and means you never lose a file. I’m also desperate to jettison my hundreds of remotes for one, super-slick Harmony Touch smart remote, which lets me control all my home entertainment with a single clever touchscreen. Goodbye plastic mountain, hello living room harmony.

It’s time to give my music a new home. The newly revamped,  uber-portable iPod nano will be good for the gym, while the iPod Touch (which comes in a range of new colours) is the perfect place to store my vast collection of cheesy classics. When I’m feeling like blasting them out, the Jawbone Jambox is an extremely portable and very sexy wireless speaker that links with almost any device.

6. Canon Powershot S110

Finally I’m looking for a pocket-sized camera that packs a professional punch. The Canon Powershot S110 is built like a compact camera but is packed to the brim with top of the range features, so I can capture Dad’s boxing day snooze in more detail than ever before. Surely you can give us a Snappy Christmas, Mr Claus?
