The feel good action movie this summer was definitely The Avengers. The movie pleased the old geek crowd while also make new fans. Also, there is nothing more techy than Ironman's awesome suit!
It's not every year that we a new video game console. The last one was the PlayStation 3, which came out in 2006! The Wii U kicks off a new generation of gaming with a cool gamepad that has a built-in touch screen that you can use to play certain games without a TV! It doesn't hurt that there are lots of great games already out for it, including Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendo Land.
Cameras are one of those electronic devices that keep getting better with each passing year. Almost anyone could do with an upgrade. For under $100, you can pick up a Canon Powershot A2300 or A800, which are some of the better point and shoot cameras at that price range. If you are willing to spend more, take a look at the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14, which gives you the best bang for buck.
If there is one thing that techies love to do, it's read and browse the internet. The Nook HD and the Kindle Fire HD are the newest eReaders on the market and they will let you do both. The Nook HD also lets you watch videos while the Kindle Fire HD has great Bluetooth support.
As the newest device coming out of the Apple labs, every techy is dying to get their hands on the iPad Mini. This tablet can do everything that the iPad can, but is smaller and more convenient to carry around.
