Motorola Xoom

Some of the most popular items for Men are of course gadgets and anything that’s to do with technology. Whether it’s a new Laptop Computer or Touchpad, they always like the most up to date version. And you can't get more up to date than this. Available now.

It has a 1 GHz dual core processor, 10.1 inch multi touch HD display, and 1 GB of DDR2 Ram. It also consists of 802.11b/g/n 5 megapixel camera, and a 2 megapixel front facing web cam. It also has a multi touch holographic interface. Along with Google Maps 5.0, 3D Interaction, access to over 3 million, yes I said 3 million! Google Books and Google Talk with video and voice chat, it has so much more I wouldn't have room to put it here.

Suffice to say this is one handy bit of great Technology.

Kindle Fire

What is it about the Kindle Fire that is so special? Well, apart from the scrumptious vibrant color screen, it seems that it can keep up with Apple's iPad and more.

And lets face it, at the much cheaper price of $199 compared to the iPad which retails at $499, you have plenty of spare cash floating around in your pocket, so you can buy yourself something extra too! Sorry, this is meant to be for Men. Hum! Let's be honest here, we are all going to want one.

Just by taking a peek at it, I want it now. Why? Well, take a look and see. .

18 million movies, songs, magazines, TV shows and books.

Amazon Silk very fast web browsing.

Powerful dual core processor.

And so much more technical stuff that I would have to write a book to explain it all.

Let's just say its fabulous and leave it at that. Take a look at the video below if you want to see just how special this little gadget is.

Toshiba nB5505 10.1 Inch Netbook (Blue)

Computer Bargain Prices Under $300

There's nothing we like better than a bargain. So I have searched around to find you these great deals. Nearly every home has a Computer, and if you have a large family I suspect there is a lot of squabling going on to who gets to use it first and for how long.

The advantage of technology always updating so quickly, is the fact that if you don't want everything so high tech you get yourself in a muddle trying to figure it all out, why not buy a cheaper one? It is perfect for browsing the Internet, talking to your friends on Twitter or Facebook, and just about anything else. And they are really handy, especially the Netbook as they are slim and can be carried around wherever you go.

Tech Details

Intel Atom Processor N455 1.66 GHz 512KB L2 Cache, with 1BG DDR2 Max 2GB

This is one of the thinnest on the market, and it weighs less than 3 Pounds!

Handy Little PC.

Acer Chromebook

Acer Chromebook

Want a PC that boots up in 10 seconds? Yep? thought so! How many of us are fed up with waiting for our PCs to start? Mind you it gives you lots of extra time to do other things like count the tiles on the wall, see whether you need to patch up that old crack on the ceiling that you never got around to, or just sit and stare into space, getting more and more agitated by the minute. If thats the case then this is your man, or should I say PC.

Why is it so much better? Well, you see its like this. At last somebody has realised that waiting around for ages isn't part of the fun and have come up with this little gem.

The Acer Chromebook is evidently the future of Computing. It has a no fuss design and a 11.6" HD display. It has been described as the PC for people who live and breath online. The speed with which it goes from one screen to the other, is instantaneous. How about that. At last!

The Acer Chromebook is powered by an Intel dual-core processor, Chrome OS. And a 2GB DDR3 Memory. And loads of other tech stuff that I will let you discover for yourself.Suffice to say, this is the one I have been waiting for! My fingers are so fast on the PC you can see smoke coming from them, and I have never ever found one to keep up, not even at work!

Portable DVD Player

DVD players have been out for a long time now, but with all the great new gadgets on the market they do seem to get overlooked. So I thought I would show you a lovely little DVD player that can be very useful when you are stuck in traffic! That of course is only one of the uses for it, especially on a long car trip, kids always get so frustrated after a few miles, and I am sure you are fed up with hearing, 'Are we there yet?'.

So what better way to entertain them on a long journey, or even if you want some 'me' time, just lock yourself away, shut of the lights and pull the curtains. This little 7 inch portable DVD player is a bit different from the rest. The advantage is that it has a swivel screen, so even if you are using it while balanced on top of a table, car seat or anywhere else, you don't have to keep moving the base to get a good picture. Most DVD players get shifted around all the time, and that can be a pain when you have to keep getting up to change it. The Sylvania SDVD7027 can be fixed into position to stop it falling, and all you have to do is swivel the screen. Simple.

And the great thing about it is that it takes CDs too. Comes with a Remote so that you don't even have to lean forward and press a button.

Vehicle GPS

Long gone are the days when we got out or maps, turned them the wrong way up and got completely lost! How many arguments did you have? Yes, exactly! Then along came a little gadget that stopped all the arguments, and, lets face it, made life a whole lot easier when driving. Not to say in the early days of Vehicle GPS systems there weren't drastic mistakes. I can still remember the one about the man, a bridge and an old lady making tea! Long story short, lots of men followed their systems, ended up on a flooded bridge, couldn't get out and it went on all day. One after the other, until in the end an older resident decided that enough was enough and the poor men needed what we Brits would call our life blood. Tea. And lots of it.

Hopefully we have progressed since then. And with the help of great little gadgets like the Garmin nuvi 1490LMT 5 Inch Bluetooth portable GPS Navigator With a Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates, we should never get lost again.

It is sunlight readable and Preloaded with navigation for North America, Canada, and Puerto Rico. And has six million points of interest installed. Along with Free Lifetime Map and traffic updates.

It also has a voice prompted turn directions and blue tooth wireless technology with built in speaker, hands free. And you get a one year warranty.
