Violet Blue, Pulp Tech: This slick little camera might look like just another novelty camera, but Lytro does what most people want in a point and shoot nowadays: the ability to just point and shoot, and worry about focusing and brightness later. Read more about it if you want to find out the tech behind what makes this possible (spoiler: it's Lytro's software), but it's my top pick for the grab-and-go camera fanbase. It's ultra-basic, doesn't shoot video and isn't big on megapixels. Think of it like a really slick bite-sized snack for easy-peasy lifeblogging, and you've got your toy.
Price: Starts at $399

James Kendrick, Mobile NewsThe IdeaPad U300s is the perfect gift for the modern family. It is the thinnest, lightest Windows laptop (Ultrabook) ever made, and it handles everything thrown at it with ease. Throw in an 8-hour battery life -- plus the fact the battery can be charged 50% in just 30 minutes -- and the U300s is the best in class.
