Dreams about the future are always filled with gadgets.

― Neil deGrasse Tyson
Gadgets have become an inseparable part of our life in this day and age. We tend to rely on them for completing some of the most basic tasks throughout the day.

While men are considered to be more gadget-oriented than women, but women today are not too much behind. They are as interested in gadget purchasing as men are. These gadgets include music players, beauty accessories, and home appliances―after all, it is the woman who is in charge of the hearth, despite what is said about gender equality and all that.

Portable Music Players
The iPod is easily a woman’s best friend. With this useful gadget, one can listen to their favorite music at any time of the day. It is a wonderful entertainment source. And if you happen to have no money constraints, you can always buy a video iPod on which you can also watch videos. It’s an amazing gadget for women which can be used at the gym, while cooking, or even while relaxing.

Epilators are handy devices for hair removal that are used by many women. It spares one the hassle of going to the salon every now and then. Epilators are rather useful during summer when every woman wants to be beach-ready at all times. Braun and Philips make some efficient and budget-friendly epilators.

Food Processors
As said earlier, women generally tend to be in charge of the kitchen in most households. Therefore, it only makes sense to buy a food processor to help you with processing food. Eating out is expensive and quite unhealthy as well, and cost-cutting is always appreciated by everyone, especially women, who also have to budget the expenses in the household.

USB Pregnancy Test Kit
Sick of using those disposable pregnancy test kits? Here is a cooler, easier and a quicker way of finding out your pregnancy results. This kit looks like a flash drive. On its one end there is a place for inserting absorbent test strip and on the end is the USB Connector. You need to drop some amount of urine on the test strip (Keep the USB cap on) and then fix the USB on your PC. The USB port undertakes an electrospray ionizing process and makes a urinalysis. After this, on the LCD of the USB the result will be indicated in the form of a symbol of a “Baby”, “No Baby” or “Multiples”. Also it will show you the estimated delivery date if you are pregnant.

Hair Straightener/Curler
Every woman with straight hair longs for curly hair, and vice versa. So these hairstyling tools are a must-have for every woman. Women are generally obsessed with their looks, so what can be a better gadget than a hairstyling device? The portable version of these tools can be carried while traveling as well, making it a perfect travel companion.

Hard Disk
We women always have less space to store our things and the same applies to our favorite songs, movies, pictures and videos. After completing a season of Real Housewives you are forced to delete it to make space for the next one. Sad! So, to get rid of this trouble, just get your self a 1 TB hard disk and store whatever you want in it. There is no need to delete your favorite TV shows, movies, and romantic videos anymore.

Phones
It’s no secret that women love to talk non-stop. They can keep gossiping with their friends for hours, and if that time falls short, they use their phones to resume the chit-chatting. Therefore, it can be said that no woman can live without her phone, which is why it features among the top 10 gadgets for women.

GPS Navigation System
A GPS navigation system is a device that gives you audible driving directions with real time traffic updates, street names, and text to speech in large screens. Get a new GPS navigator for yourself (if you don’t have it installed or if you have an old model installed) and be sure that you’ll find your way where ever you are.

Digital Photo Frame
A digital photo frame takes to the land of Harry Potter, where all the paintings and portraits spoke and lived. Digital Photo Frames are elegant, with excellent image quality, and are user-friendly. Women love having their loved ones hanging around them, and what could be a better way than using a digital camera to have your family, friends, and pets together in front of your eyes each day.

E-readers
E-readers are a must have gadgets for women who love reading. You can store around 1200 books in your E-reader. It is so easy and convenient to carry with you wherever you go. You are saved from the space 1200 books would take and the best part is that you can carry them all with you. It does look like a book and the customized screen size makes reading more comfortable than reading on your cell phones or your laptop.

Aren’t these gadgets so cool? Some are a necessity, some are meant for convenience, some are meant for luxury and some are meant for beauty. I am sure you want to buy them all. If you have any other cool gadgets for women, share them with me; I’ll be happy to add them on my list.

Either way, if you have the moolah, there is no way you will regret buying any of the following gadgets that we recommend. So without wasting any more time, let’s take a look at some gadgets that will make you drool with desire, and perhaps lull or coax you into robbing that bank round the corner. And with technology improving every second, it may well be that this article becomes obsolete just as soon as I finish writing it, so don’t waste any time. Well, you can’t say we didn’t warn you!

7 Gadgets That Beg To Be Owned

Apple iPhone

When it comes to smartphones, the market is flooded with options. The choice you will have while choosing a smartphone is enough for even the smartest of you to go mad. To help you out, and mind, this is not a binding decision, Buzzle thinks that the best you can get today is none other than the iPhone. Though there may be many of you who will disagree with me, the iPhone remains the best constructed and sophisticated phone today. Sure, many have tried to copy it, and many have come close, but we’d have no regrets buying the 5s today, and neither should you. With advanced features like fingerprint scanning and a 64 bit OS, the iPhone is still holing its own in the smartphone market, albeit by a thread.

So if you have been stuck in a cave, and are not in possession of a smartphone (you really should have been through your 3rd or 4th one by now), then go ahead and pick up the iPhone 5s today.

Apple iPod touch

Music is the answer to all problems, right? Well, then you ought to have a good music player to listen to your favorite tunes. This is another area where you can get blinded for choice. It seems like every Tom, Dick, and Harry is making a MP3 player these days. And not to forget, almost every phone can play music as well. But we would recommend not to mix your tunes with your calls, and go ahead and spring for a dedicated music player. And to those geniuses who guessed the following, hats off to you. The MP3 player to have today is the Apple iPod touch. Latest generation. Surprised? Well, you shouldn’t be. Apple’s latest iPod comes with gargantuan memory, ensuring that you can take your entire music library with you wherever you go. And if you are not in possession of item no. 1 on this list, then you should go post-haste and buy one.

But really, the iPod is a stellar music player, and comes highly recommended. Don’t worry about money not being well spent. As those people in Nike would say (if Apple hired them, of course), Just. Buy. It.

Multitouch Coffee Table from Ideum

Just to make it seem that I’m not an Apple fan, I’m throwing a coffee table into the mix. No, you didn’t get the coffee table part wrong, and I’m not too fussed about being called an Apple fan. But if you’re wondering what a coffee table is doing in this list, prepare to be stunned. Built by Ideum, a company that makes special custom hardware and software, this is one coffee table that you won’t find in any regular furniture shop. The Multitouch Coffee Table, as it is known, is a table that comes with a 1080p display in 2 sizes, 32-inch and 46-inch. This is backed by a 3.7 Ghz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and 500 GB of storage space. Operating systems can range from the quintessential Windows, to the lighter Android 4.4 KitKat. There are a host of other features that makes this the perfect gadget to drool over, and yes, the display surface is spill-resistant.

Remember that bank we spoke about earlier? Well, you might have to do something with that, as this wonderful piece of gadgetry starts from a whopping USD 7,000.

C Seed Kinematics

Back to something more mundane then, though the latest TVs are anything but mundane. In case the words ‘back to’ got you thinking, well, this is not the section where I recommend the Apple TV. Not yet. This space is reserved for something better. And what can be a better TV than Kinematics―the world’s largest outdoor TV. This is a TV, that in the words of the company, is a “TV that raises from the ground, unfolds the world’s largest TV display and adjusts in height and angle for the perfect viewing experience.” This TV, if you can call it that, has a screen that measure a mammoth 201 inches diagonally. That’s about 115 square feet, or the size of a small room. And did we tell you it lives underground? Yep. That’d be true. When you’re done watching, it folds, and retracts back into the ground, where its huge size does not bother anyone.

The cost? At an insane USD 810,000 this gadget probably costs more than your house. But, well, it is designed by Porsche. If you’re done drooling, we’d suggest a infinitely more affordable 4K TV for now, which is manufactured by all leading TV makers. At roughly around USD 5,000, this is still expensive, but is the best practical TV money can buy right now.

Gadget Buying Tips

1. Is it supported where you’re from? Does your country have the necessary services to allow such a device? There’s this story about cellphones – Japan has some of the slimmest, most-feature-packed phones way before WAP and WiFi were the orders of the day in today’s models. Take note, however, that phones from Japan come bundled with a subscription service, and that they don’t use GSM. What this basically means is that, if your country has GSM deployed for cellular phone services, a phone you bought in Japan would have a slim, if none, chances of working. Or game consoles that only have outputs that your TV doesn’t support, that sort of thing. There are hacks/unlocks for other devices, but that would mean you’re breaking the terms of use bundled with the device. In a manner of speaking, it’s breaking the law of devices.

2. Warranty. If, say, you’re in a country where so-and-so brand originated, and they sell plasma TVs WITH warranty at a lower price, it doesn’t automatically mean you’re covered when you leave that country.Say, you bought an uber-cool cell phone-slash-camera-slash-music player-slash-game console and it breaks – there’s little to no chance of that ever getting fixed if it’s manufacturer doesn’t have a base in your country, and, if it ever did, don’t count on your original warranty to matter when you’re getting it fixed.

3. Read the fine print, or, get someone to read it for you if it’s in another language. Say you get this thumb-sized music player for a really low price, but upon getting home, you realize that the official adapter used to charge the batteries isn’t included … that’s bad. Make sure you know what you’re getting and what getting that device entails upon purchasing.

4. Do your research. Just like buying a device, if possible, do your research online. If the gadget is too obscure, physically test the device on-site, if you can, or compare it with other gadgets in the store. Another thing you could do is ask for opinions from other customers, or, as a last resort, from the clerk who’s trying to make a sell. There have been times that a sales clerk would be more concerned for your welfare as a consumer, rather than caring if he makes a sell or not. Look for these types of people. They will help you.

Hopefully, these tips have enlightened you before your purchase. Browsing stores on different shores is always a fun thing, you never know whether back-alley sales have any difference from the ones in the bigger stores.

Getting a gadget that would turn into a useless heap of plastic and metal once you land? That’s a hassle. Being smart about your budget? That’s priceless.

Kids Growing Inclination Towards Gadgets

In today’s busy and hectic life, electronic gadgets are an absolute necessity; an innate necessity to connect better and network better. The phone, internet rice cooker, griller, toaster, micro wave oven and laptop, are all smart options that the markets are flooded with these days. With adults caught up in the whirlwind of buying the latest electronic gadgets, children are also being influenced with the ease with which these gadgets can be used.

Children can now lay their hands on their parent’s I-Pods, I-pads, cells phones and almost everything that even closely resembles an electronic gadget. It is the media world that brought this consumer shift. If we analyze the market, we can easily say that kids have become potential buyers of the electronic gadgets. The advertisers come up with luring ads that attract the kids towards buying new electronic gadget. The trend of video games is spreading like fire all around the world. Not the kids only, but teens and youths are also become potential users of video games. Though some of these games contain some educational benefits, others are completely meant for the purpose of entertainment.

The advertisers promote these games by claiming that kids can develop their motor skills by playing the video games. Many people question the authenticity of such claims and ask for more research on the subject. The electronic gadgets impact our interpersonal behavior greatly. Before the invention of these gadgets, children occupied their time and communicated differently. They used to spend more time with their grandparents, other members of the family, friends and neighbors. But now this system of interpersonal communication has changed largely. It was just couple of days back that I saw two school going kids walking together; one of the kids was texting on the phone while the other one was busy playing game in the Gameboy or PSP. It seemed that though two of them were walking together, but they were in two different worlds.

The appearance of these gadgets also harmed the habits of the kids regarding physical exercise. Earlier, in the winter season kids love to run in the backyard in the morning time so that the body could get heated. But now kids love to play Contra, Mario or some other types of game in their PC or TV sets during their holidays. Though these gadgets have negative impacts on the development of the toddlers, some of them also contain great educational values. The toy making companies have come up with digital boars for the toddlers.

Earlier parents used to teach their toddlers the alphabets or numerical numbers using paper and pencil. But now these digital boards functions as a notebook. On these the alphabet appears along with different demonstrations. As all these are digital in mood, so these easily catch the interest of the kids and thus make the process of learning a fun. Some electronic gadgets teach children to learn by using multiple choice test questions. This is the method that is most often used in schools and will serve to familiarize the child to testing in schools. Children can play outside and learn how to steer wireless automobiles that require an electronic chip to make them do tricks.
