Here are some ways you can get the latest and greatest technology into every room in your house.
Tablets are the biggest trend in technology right now. They are becoming less expensive by the day and with a variety of brands, sizes and uses, everyone’s Christmas list will most likely include a tablet (if they do not have one already). Here are some great uses for tablets in various uses around your home:
The Kitchen – Many people are ditching the old school cookbooks and recipe cards for a tablet. There are plenty of cookbook apps that will have every recipe you’ll ever need. And if you need something more specific, you can use the browser to search for a recipe. Cooking something in the oven? Set a timer on your tablet and take it with you while you relax until it is done!
The Living Room – There are a lot of apps for home automation and they vary from controlling your lights to the temperature of your house. Another big trend with tablets is the ‘second screen’ revolution for those who will multitask by consuming media on two screens.
The Bedroom – A tablet is perfect for the bedroom. Rather than get up to find that book you are reading, you can open an app and find exactly where you left off. Check your personal email, post to Facebook, or read a blog. Once you are done reading for the night, set your alarm to wake you up in the morning. With iOS 6, you can even wake up to music instead of those annoying pre-set alerts.
Using a Computer with your TV
Apple’s Mac Mini is the perfect companion for your TV if you are looking for a more advanced way to integrate your computer setup with your home entertainment system.
If you already have a computer and don’t feel like getting another one for your TV, you can go for an Apple TV or Roku (or something similar). With an Apple TV, you are able to mirror your iPad or iPhone apps onto your TV.
