We live in a world where almost everything is portable, movable, streamable - why not gift yourself an innovative new toy?
Roku - www.roku.com
Stream tv, music, movies, your 'daily burn' workout through your tv? It's like a DVR, but different - runs through your WiFi into your television and connects you to millions (not really, but it sounds impressive - almost millions) of channels that suit your lifestyle. Pick and choose what stations you want to watch and add them to your channel line-up instead of scrolling, scrolling, scrolling. HuluPlus even streams most of your favorite shows, adding the latest episode the night after it originally airs, paired with Netflix, or Amazon - you will not be at a loss for entertainment. For the music lover, you can stream Pandora or watch VEVO's music video and concerts. Pricing ranges from $50-$100 -
WARNING - if you cancel cable, you will notice it take a time to 'adjust' to no longer having live television (wink)
Monster Superstar Speaker - www.MonsterProducts.com
Wireless stream music, calls or even movies from your table or phone through the world's smallest audiophile speaker with Bluetooth capability. This ultra-compact audio device features a splash-resistant, super-durable silicone cover in a multitude of colors. What is amazing is the size, coming in at smaller than most smartphones on the market today, the Superstar can fill a room or outdoor living space with incredible High-Fidelity sound (even when flat) - yet fits in your pocket. $150
