It's that time of year where everyone will partake in and endure the hustle and bustle of Xmas shopping. Trying to figure out what gift to get love ones or friends can be very difficult. But if by chance your love ones (or friends) are part of a Geek subculture and like all things tech, then finding that perfect gift you think they'll appreciate won't be a difficult task,because there is a vast array of dope tech for the picking. 

There are endless amount of awesome tech gadgets out there on the market to choose from,that dope laptop, that dope camera,that dope smartphone,that dope hardware.

  I've  compiled a list of outstanding tech gifts your love ones will certainly appreciate, and they are....

 

Amazon Echo  

This is a voice control personal assistant that actually works,sorry Siri. Amazon Echo is design around the users voice and its hands free. Amazing technology within the Echo, it has seven built-in  microphones and Amazon's own beam forming technology. 

Echo is connected to Alexa,which is a cloud base voice control service, its similar to how Siri and Cortona operates , except Alexa in my opinion is a bit more responsive. Ask it anything and it will accurately oblige your request: what's the weather in the area,check sport scores, even ask it word definitions. Amazon Echo can solely be used as Bluetooth speaker as it outputs impeccable sound. Perfect gift for the techno geek looking for the closets thing to near perfect voice control automated  personal assistant.

Intel Core i7  6700K

PC builders such as myself will be stoked if Core i7-4790K is found underneath my Xmas tree. Still being one the top selling CPU's on Amazon, and with good reason, its a unlocked processor that will max out at 4.1 GHz. A unprecedented four-core, eight thread design with Intel's own Hyper-Threading technology. This is a processor that will certainly give you steady peak performance.

Sphero BB-8 Droid

This app driven droid actually cleared the shelves in its first week in stores, and that was back in Sept. Why? Mainly because of the highly anticipated upcoming Star Wars: Force Awakens movie that's set to drop at a theater near you in the coming weeks. Not only will it make a great Xmas gift, it's perfect novelty item that you display on your shelf.

Oh yeah, then there's the BB-8 Droid itself, its app driven that you can control from your smartphone. Surprisingly for me the BB- 8 Droid was easy to control and very responsive.
