Two thousand and thirteen is the year to fill up your gift list with electronic and technology gifts for both home and school. Below are our top four picks for either giving or receiving this year!

Our number four pick for this year is the Google Chromecast. It is a simple to use and inexpensive device that allows you to stream videos from your iPad or your smartphone directly to the TV. All you need is Wi-Fi and you are good to see all of your YouTube videos, Vines and Instagram posts on the big screen.

Our number three pick is this year’s two biggest gaming consoles, PS4 and Xbox One.  These two consoles will be difficult to find this year, but if you do, it will be worth the effort.  New to Xbox One is the built in ability to Skype through Kinect. There is also a brand new dashboard that allows you to “pin” or bookmark any of your content and allows you to sync your games up with your friends.  PS4 houses some of the biggest hardware to date in video gaming systems. This new system will streamline all of your apps quickly and will become your one source for viewing media of all kinds: videos, movies, Vines, pictures, and Netflix.  Some games out for these next generation consoles are “Titanfall,” a multi-player game for Xbox One where the players fight giant Mech Suits and “Infamous: Second Son” for PS4 which is the third game in the “Infamous,” series where you can control a super powered graffiti artist who uses smoke and ash powers in a totalitarian version of Seattle. With these games and many others, you will have a great time with either system.

Our number two pick this year is the Fitbit Flex. This device is great for the fitness expert or just the person trying to lose those last few pounds. It helps you manage your exercise by keeping track of your steps, distance, and calories burned. This is all done on a device that goes on your wrist and provides you all the information you need through the use of LED lights. You customize it yourself using a daily dashboard and you are good to go for the day.

And finally, our number one gift  pick for 2013 is the GoPro Hero 3+.  With this camera you can capture your adventures in larger than life quality. This camera can mount to anything, your bike, skateboard, or just onto your baseball cap. It is a waterproof camera with built in Wi-Fi that allows you to take pictures and make videos from a much different point of view than a normal camera.  The person watching these videos or looking at these pictures will feel like they are taking part in your adventures.
