- Lacie Cloudbox – One place to store movies, music, an photos – and share with everyone in the house ( and out)! Instead of hogging up memory on a computer, or constantly transferring movies and music, you can stream from your “own cloud.” Without getting to “geeky tech speak”.

- Cool tablets:
It’s a tie, depending on what you need: Kindle Fire HD (their latest) has better screen and is best for reading and watching movies. iPad Mini’s screen is very good, but offers you a lot more apps in the iTunes store. It’s a matter of personal preference and use, but you wont sacrifice quality with either. iPad mini is more expensive. If it’s “mom or dad’s first eReader”, the easiest way to choose is choosing based on the first sentence above. Kindle Fire HD comes in the new 8.9 inch screen and the 7 inch.
