) - Trying to find that perfect holiday gift for friends or family who have everything can be a daunting task. If they're a techie, the job can be even more difficult.
"Tech is growing more popular every year," says Emmy Award-winning Tech and Trends reporter Brett Larson, and host of KillerApps.TV. "Do your research online for not only the best price, but look for product reviews as well to make sure it fits your needs."
Here are five must-have "Killer Apps" to place on your gift list
this holiday season:
* Keep in touch. The VTech Inno Tab 3S Wi-Fi Learning Tablet is the only children's tablet with an app called Kid Connect, which helps parents stay connected to their kids. The InnoTab 3S is an easy-to-use tablet-to-mobile device that allows children to send voice messages, text messages, photos and drawings to parents' smartphones. The product includes 20 apps, and access to VTech's Learning Lodge store that includes more than 600 titles of educator-approved content.
* Got coffee? For cup o'Joe lovers, the Tassimo T47 Home Brewing System might just hit the spot. This single-serve system uses Intellibrew technology, where a unique barcode on each beverage T DISC determines the amount of water, brewing time and temperature to deliver the perfect cup. It brews everything from coffee to real milk-based cappuccinos and lattes, even hot chocolate.
* Stay connected. The LG G2 is T-Mobile's latest 4G LTE smartphone that delivers blazing fast and unlimited 4G speeds when paired with the Simple Choice Plan and Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data option. This sleek and stylish device features a 13 Megapixel Camera and a Rear Key button for quick, shareable "selfies" and is just the thing for everyone from multi-taskers to tech trend setters.
* Stay tuned. The Korus V600 and the Korus V400 are audio systems that take the guesswork out of technology by removing wi-fi network setup and Bluetooth pairing. With these systems, you can stream audio (be it music, TV shows or games) from your mobile device or PC through one to four speakers. Because of the more stable and larger bandwidth wireless signals, you can stream audio without pops, clicks or drops.
* Create more space. Transporter Sync from Connected Data is a $99 private, unlimited cloud storage device for syncing, accessing, sharing and protecting all your files without monthly fees. Amenities of the device include the ability to access your files from anywhere in the world on any device; share collections of files with anyone; and have photos and videos on your phone protected.
