HD Video Camera Pen
Small is always good as far as technology is concerned, and this new HD Video Camera pen from Brookstone is small and convenient. It is a very nice writing instrument but it also includes a 1 megapixel video camera. It comes with an 8 GB storage card that can be removed, or the pen can be plugged into a computer or laptop. Battery life is about an hour, which is enough for the quick video you might want to grab with the pen. There is no screen to see what you are shooting, but this is more... for the very quick moment you just want a video when your other cameras or your smartphone isn't handy. It would also be great for recording a short business meeting or a lecture.Continue to 4 of 11 below.

Wocket Smart Wallet
This is one of the coolest tech items available for the holidays this year. With the Wocket Wallet, all of your credit cards, debit cards, loyalty cards and membership cards can be input into one smart card which is carried in the Wocket wallet. You scan all of your cards with the Wocket card reader into the Wocket card. Then, when you want to use a card, you select it on the Wocket card screen and swipe or scan it with the merchant. You can even retrieve the card information for online... purchases. The wallet comes with an extra card slot as well for your drivers license or other cards that can't be swiped or scanned. This is great technology and extremely convenient for any man who hates a fat wallet.Continue to 5 of 11 below.

Selfie Wireless Remote Shutter
If you have ever tried to take a "selfie" of you or your family or friends, you know it can be tough to reach far enough, and it is kind of annoying to carry around a selfie stick. But getting a good picture using the timer function on your phone is also a little risky. The Selfie Wireless Remote Shutter lets you set up the phone, get into the picture and remotely operate the phone so it takes the picture at just the right moment. It even comes with two different small phone stands to... let you set up the phone at the right angle. It will work up to 33' away from the device so you can get a pretty large group in the photo. It doesn't require WiFi or Bluetooth because you install an app on the phone instead. Ingenious!Continue to 6 of 11 below.

Samsung Level U Wireless Headphones
I love listening to music or podcasts while I am exercising, but I hate dealing with the cords connecting my headphones to my iPhone. So, I have been in the market for a good set of wireless headphones, and the Samsung Level U Wireless unit is just what I have been looking for. They are an in ear headphone with a U shaped neck band which makes them ideal for exercise (they stay in even under exertion). The sound is really excellent - I could';t tell an appreciable difference in quality... between my older wired earbuds and the Level U model. If you are looking for an affordable but good quality wireless headphone unit for exercise or your active lifestyle, you should definitely consider the Samsung Level U headphones.Continue to 8 of 11 below.

While my wife loves her Kindle Fire, sometimes you just want a clean and clear e-book reader without the glare and without all the bells and whistles. The Kindle Paperwhite is just such a device. No screen glare, a battery that lasts for days and days, a very high resolution (300 ppi) display, an adjustable light to read even in low light situations, and weighing just over 7 ounces, the Paperwhite is the latest and greatest of the e-book readers. It literally is better than reading the... printed page, which is saying a lot for an e-reader.Continue to 11 of 11 below.

The Ooma Telo
When our family moved to a new data provider, we gave up our old landline, but we didn't want to lose the convenience of a land line and retire entirely on our cell phones. The Ooma Telo is a great investment for families who want a line at home but don't want to pay a fortune for it. One you purchase the Telo, Ooma offers free basic phone service (other than taxes) with either a free new number or a small cost to port your old one. A $10 monthly buy up offers tons of additional... services. Reception is crystal clear and the device is attractive and unobtrusive. Read my review about the Ooma Telo and learn more.
