The Download: Hot for the Holidays: Streaming sticks, Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro laptop, Eton Blackout Buddy
Have a tech-lover on your holiday list? News 12's Andrew Ehinger checks out some of the hottest products out there guaranteed to score you points with your loved ones this season.
The power of a laptop with the versatility of a tablet. That's what kicks off this year's The Download: Hot for the Holidays. The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is considered a 2-in-1 computer because it hinges at 360 degrees, turning a laptop computer into a tablet. In addition to its hinge, it is Windows-based and weighs only 2.6 pounds. Perfect for that road warrior, but it will cost you at least $1,300.
Keep your loved ones safe with the Eton Blackout Buddy CO detector. For $60, it plugs into your outlet and will sound an alert at 90 decibels if it detects carbon monoxide. It also functions as a night light and turns into a flash light if the power goes out.
From the Internet to your TV screen, there are several products out there to stream movies, videos and more. The Roku streaming stick has access to 1,800 Internet TV and movie channels. The Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast also allow you to stream from your computer or mobile device to your TV. Each plugs into your TV's HDMI port and connects to your homes Wi-Fi. All cost under $40.
