Everyhing for the guy who loves tech.
Thanks to my friends over at Verizon, I had the opportunity to get my hands on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (The Camera. Reimagined.) back on March 6th and got to use it for a month. Now keep in mind, I have been using my iPhone 7 as my primary phone throughout this time and will be upgrading in September to either the iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone XI Plus (or what ever they decide to call it.) Though there are some features I like on the Samsung it is not enough to sway me over to Samsung and run out and get me one just yet. I have never owned an android phone as I went straight from my Blackberry to the iPhone 4 back in late 2010 and don’t plan on switching now. Keep in mind this doesn’t mean that it not a very good phone.
A bucket list is a record of things that you want to accomplish before you kick the bucket. It’s great to have one as it gives you something to work towards, and avoids you getting caught up in day-to-day activities and letting your life pass you by. Plenty of people have them, so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if you did too. You may think that your bucket list is looking great and pretty full, but I’m afraid you’re going to have to make some room for some fresh (and incredibly geeky) ideas.

If your partner, dad, brother, friend, or colleague loves gadgets and they have an occasion coming up, then you’re going to want to get them something that will wow them (and hopefully that they haven’t already got). So let’s take a look at five different areas of gadget coolness with gifts that you could consider getting as a gift.
Home security is and should be a key component for anyone who owns a home and wants to keep their family safe. Ring is a company that has taken home security to the next level with its line of doorbells and flood light cameras. I first was introduced to Ring back in 2013 on Shark Tank when it was named Doorbot. Doorbot was crowdfunded via Christie Street, and raised US$364k, more than the $250k requested. In 2015, DoorBot rebranded under the new name Ring. Ring released their stick up camera which incorporated the same features as the doorbell but without the actual doorbell button.
