Top Tech Gifts This Holiday Season

Just in time for your Black Friday holiday shopping. Here are the top tech gifts this holiday season, chosen by Chris Ward, Chris Williams, Dan Allen, and Randy Becker. Hopefully this will help with the gift search!

Chris Ward, CTO

DJI Phantom 3 Drone - With a 4K camera, GPS assisted hover, vision positioning system and Live HD View, it allows you to easily take crisp aerial videos and images from the sky.

Amazon Echo & Amazon Echo Dot - To say it's just a hands free speaker with voice control would be an understatement. Echo connects to Alexa voice assistant and can play music, tell you the news, order you pizza and much more.

Samsung Gear VRThis VR headset is one of the best on the market, but make sure you have a Samsung phone. However, if you have an Android, check out the Google Daydream.

Chris Williams, Enterprise Consultant

Official Star Wars DronesThese are Star Wars drones, enough said. Best gift ever for the Star Wars fanatic in your family.

Fitbit Charge HROne of their newest wristbands. It's built for all day, workouts and more, it also features PurePulse heart rate monitor and caller ID so you don't have to take out your phone.

Google HomeGoogle's answer to the Amazon Echo, a voice activated speaker powered by Google Assistant with countless hands free features. An added bonus is that you can control your Google Chromecast with it. Unlike the Amazon Echo, which cannot control its fellow product, the Amazon Fire TV stick.

Dan Allen, Solutions Architect

Drone - No matter how much you spend,  it's the best gift ever.

Nintendo Entertainment System: Classic EditionIt is a miniaturized replica of the original NES system and comes pre-installed with 30 original NES games. Great for kids or a kid at heart.

Randy Becker, CTO

Amazon Echo or Google Home - A face off of the home smart speakers, both have personal assistants, but purchase one or the other, and make sure you do your research.

Apple Watch Series 2With a built in GPS and water resistant up to 50M, the new Apple watch is full of features to keep you connected and active.

Microsoft Exchange Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Being Actively Exploited in The Wild

By Randy Becker, CISO & VP, Network and Security Consulting It isn’t common for Microsoft to release a security update for an 11-year-old server application. So, when they do, people take notice.
