Techie gift suggestions for Mom

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Some techie gift suggestions for Mom.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It’s not just the boys who like techie toys.   The Consumer Technology Association conducted a recent survey and found that 93 percent of moms use tech products for at least an hour a day.   Smartphones, tablets, TVs and more.    And some of the more interesting things you can buy for Mother’s Day come from the tech world.   The CTA’s Jim Barry says for instance…there are streaming sticks….wearables like the Apple Watch or Fitbit Alta…

“There are some really good looking form factors, very stylish smart watches and other wearable devices and this is all part of the Internet of things, you know, as sensors get smaller and wireless technology gets better and better.”

Connecting everything.  To keep things powered up…maybe Mom could use a purse with a built in charging battery.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
