Hot for the Holidays: Gifts 4-2

Have a tech lover in your life? Struggling to find the perfect and coolest gift? News 12 Long Island's Andrew Ehinger is counting down the top 10 tech gifts this holiday season in The Download: Hot for the Holidays.



Coming in at number four is the Tile Slim. And according to Brian Katzman, of Tile, you can put the slim device on just about anything, and there is a good chance you'll be able to find it if it gets misplaced. The Tile Slim is small enough to slip into a wallet or attach to the back of a computer. By using a smartphone app, you try and locate the items if they get misplaced.



Want to find some quiet on a busy street or crowded office? Then check out number three on the list, Plantronics Back Beat Pro 2. The noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones deliver rich sound, and have a battery that will last for 24 hours of use without charging.



Number two is the newest virtual assistant from Amazon, the Echo Dot. Smaller in size than the Echo, at the size of a hockey puck, it can be put anywhere in your home. The Echo Dot can turn on lights, control music, set timers and more, just by asking Alexa. A bonus feature includes ordering items from Amazon if you're a Prime member.
