A Grab Bag of Unique Tech Gifts


‘Tis the season for techie gifts on Global News Tech Talk. While that’s pretty much every season for the GetConnected team, the holidays are when we can suggest some more unique ideas that you may not have thought of for that techie that might already have everything. First, we’ve got the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Fold, then we’ve got the Tivo EDGE DVR, and finally the Miko 2 educational robot.

Here’s a rundown of all these great health and beauty tech products featured on Global News Tech Talk for Wednesday, December 11, 2019.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been the talk of the town ever since it launched. While the device has had some delays at launch, the company has continued to march forward in bringing this flagship device to market. While there are other designs out in the wild, the phone and tablet in one vision is what Samsung has stuck to. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is now available in Canada for $2599.99 CAD. You can bet it’s a gift that few techies have in their arsenal of gadgets.

If you have someone on your list that tunes into over the air HDTV and loves their streaming services, they likely go through a bit of a dance that involves apps, streaming dongles, and TV tuners plus HD antennas. That’s why the Tivo EDGE DVR is a compelling holiday gift option that ties everything together. You can record all your shows from your HD Antenna (where available) with the dual tuners to the internal 500GB hard drive. You can also search across all your streaming services for the content you are looking for with the remote or just your voice. The mobile app also allows you to download content off your Tivo EDGE DVR to take on the road. It’s a good looking device that provides a lot of functionality and value and is available for $299 CAD.

For those looking for a unique high tech gift for kids, Miko 2 would certainly qualify. This little robot is made for children ages 5 – 10 and is constantly updated with content from educational experts. Miko 2 makes learning academic topics like math and reading, so much fun, that children don’t even realize they are learning. It does this with a wealth of games, puzzles, and even jokes, and uses advanced AI and facial recognition to adapt to your child’s mood and personality. For those parents that travel, Miko 2 also allows for encrypted 2-way communication with your kids, so you’re never out of touch. Miko 2 is available for $399 US directly from their website.
