Holiday Gift Guide for the High Speed Internet Geek

BY Allconnect Inc | Wed Dec 07, 2011

If buying a gift for a high speed Internet geek is on your list this holiday season, consider these cool new high-tech gadgets that will make the online experience even better.

For storing and traveling with devices, Grid-It organizers are sturdy, slim, and incredibly practical when it comes to fitting and protecting phones, tablets, cords, chargers, ear-buds, etc, in a cleverly designed packing system. They have a range of sizes and prices depending on how many gadgets your geek is packing.

If your high speed Internet geek watches movies, TV and video on the tiny screens of hand-held devices, open up their world with the Vuzix Wrap 310XL video eyewear. This sunglass-style widescreen eyewear allows you to watch your movies and videos in a 16:9 widescreen format without attracting stares. The glasses create a virtual 55-inch screen seen from 10 feet.  Both standard 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios can be displayed, as well as 2D and 3D format.

High speed Internet geeks use their phones for more than talking and all that extra activity drains batteries quickly. Place the iPhone in the attractive, slim Morphie Juice Pack Plus case and it more than doubles the battery life. The hard-shell case offers protection and the case design acts as a virtual speaker box, redirecting sound from the bottom of the iPhone to the front, improving the sound quality.

Your gift recipients may have cases for their eReaders, tablets and phones, but these offer little protection from water when reading in the bathtub or at the beach, following an online recipe in the kitchen or getting stuck in the rain. CleverWraps comes to the rescue with clear, disposable protective sleeves that keep moisture out, but allow dialing, talking, texting, using the touch screen and listening to music.
