What kind of tech items did you get for Christmas?

As the title states, what kind of tech items did you receive for Christmas? or did you give tech items away?

I myself gifted my son a Rasberry Pi 3 and the Sunfounders sensor and starter kit so he can dive into the world of coding and creating fun projects. I myself did not receive anything tech related, but i did get some hot sauce :smirk:

My wife and I have been going towards the “experience gifts” lately, so we got ourselves tickets to the latest Cirque du Soleil show - which we will be seeing tomorrow.

But I need a new mouse, and I’m looking at some Boxing Day prices now. I’m looking into a set of very specific specs - Bluetooth, Mac compatible with a way to perform some useful Mac commands such as Mission Control and Exposé, and ergonomics. I’m currently using the Logitech Ultrathin Touch Mouse, which is checks all the boxes except for the ergonomics one - it’s tiny. Right now, I’m gravitating towards the Logitech MX Master S2 or the MX Anywhere S2 - both are basically the same, but the Master is larger and might fit my hand better - but it’s also 30$ over. I’m pondering if it’s worth it. If you know of any other option that checks all my boxes, please let me know!

I got a Google Chromecast and a Google Home MIni. So far, I’m enjoying them really much, especially the Google Home Mini. There is so much features on it. I like the feature where you can play games with it, like trivia, Mad Libs, etc.

I would say try the pen command but it’s shaped like a pencil with a base and you hold it like you would a pen, but it does take some getting use to and I’m not sure what it supports in terms of Mac commands. Personally I would stick with the Logitech MX Master 2S, it’s the latest revision and one I’m most comfortable holding long term. I had the old mx revolution and this is the next best thing imo.

I got my first ever MacBook Pro!

It is an early 2015 13" model with 16GB of RAM.

I was also surprised with Final Cut Pro, Microsoft Office, and the entire Adobe suite!

I also finally got a USB meter and Apple Pencil for my iPad Pro!

I gave a portable charger to a family member, games and some Xbox accessories. I myself received a PS4! I’m team Xbox but I can’t wait to play the PS4! Hope your son enjoys the Raspberry Pi 3 and create some great things with the kit!

I was surprised myself as I usually get something tech related or even car related. But alas it was hot sauce…until today when my wife handed me a package that came a bit late. Inside was 3 tins of tobacco and a pirate skull clay pipe

Nice, I don’t drink so it would sit on a shelf if I got any. I stopped smoking ciggarettes earlier this year but still enjoy a nice cool smoke from a pipe every now and again
