My year end wrap-up of the best Apple gear of the year - Jason O'Grady

Every year around this time I round up my favorite hardware items of the year. These are items that I use personally and love and that the discerning Apple user on your list will enjoy finding under the tree this year. This year's list has a little something for everyone including hardware and accessories and one of the year's sweetest backpacks. Keep in mind that there are only four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year (usually five), so you lose a week of shopping time. If you're planning to shop online (who isn't?) Apple's deadline for ordering an iPad in time for Christmas is December 12, most other Apple gear is December 18.

And with that, let's dive in!

  • Apple getting old and boring

    Go back in time to 2010 and this stuff might be interesting. Apple products lost their cool. Microsoft and Google products much more interesting, modern, and not to mention much better value.

      Microsoft and Google products have been measuring their creative push as they monitor Apple. Better value is only in the mind of the beholder and Apple is the apple in my eye. Lost their cool? Better check the lines in front of Apple stores around the globe and watch the empty sidewalks in front of Microsoft stores. Modern? Huh?
