Guest Post: Gadgets and Gizmos for Christmas 2012
It’s that time of the year again when everyone faces a dilemma – choosing the “perfect” Christmas gift for loved ones and friends. Skipping the traditional gift giving is unthinkable; thus, people rack their brains thinking of gifts that would put genuine smiles on the faces of loved ones. That being the case, we have decided to come up with a short list of possible gift items for Christmas 2012. Since almost everyone these days is hooked on gadgets and gizmos of all kinds and sizes, the list would focus on popular and unique gadgets. Keep in mind, though, that these gadgets don’t guarantee savings. Nevertheless, these are guaranteed to light up the faces of whoever will receive these.
Sony NEX-7 Camera
The Sony NEX-7 Camera is perfect for friends and loved ones who love preserving memories the traditional way – with a hand-held camera. It’s small and lightweight but is packed with astounding features that make it the perfect all-rounder camera. It has a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor and an electronic first-curtain shutter that shortens response time from 100ms to just 20ms. It has a tilting rear screen, a three-dial user interface, and an infrared remote control receiver. It makes possible for enthusiasts to enjoy true 1080p60 video recording. These are just some of the reasons why the Sony NEX-7 is at the top of our list.
With the recent release of the iPad 4 and the noticeable price drop of the 3rd generation iPad why not consider the amazing iPad 3 as a gift? Anyone who loves gadgets deserves an Apple, and at the top of the list of most wanted, expected, and anticipated gadget gifts this season is the iPad 3. What makes this different from the first and second-generation iPads is the Retina display, Apple’s own term for the liquid crystal displays, which apparently makes it possible for human eyes not to notice pixelation given a typical viewing distance. The iPad 3 also boasts of the new Apple A5X chip with quad-core graphics processor, a 5 MP camera that allows 1080p high-definition video recording, and voice dictation. Of course, this tablet boasts of more features that puts it, according to a review written on guardian.co.uk, a mile ahead of Android tablets.
LBM Series Load Cell
If you know an engineer and want to give him something useful, then invest on the LBM Series Load Cell. In simplest terms, a load cell is a transducer, which means this device converts one form of energy into another. It actually makes an engineer’s work easier especially when it comes to assessing the level of damage to a civil infrastructure. The LBM Series converts the force inflicted on a structure into measurable electrical output; thus, it becomes easier to monitor the health of a structure.
The iPhone 5 is probably the highly anticipated gadget gift this season. After all, who wouldn’t drool over it when Apple claims it to be the thinnest, lightest, and fastest iPhone ever? It features the genius Siri technology, 3G, a 4-inch screen with 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio support, and a higher resolution. The phone also features the Apple A6, a bespoke ARMv7 processor that makes the gadget perform at a faster rate.
These are just some gadget and gizmo suggestions you might want to look into as you shop around for gifts this holiday season.
