Tech Essentials

Technology never grows old; it only grows betters. Some people I know are scared of technical advancements, waiting for an ‘Ultron’ or ‘Terminator’ like situation where the machine will eventually take over man. However, they fail to realize that they are using technology in many interesting and small ways. Hang around for a little more to discover the tech essentials I think every person must have.

A smartphone

It’s a no-brainer. You need the latest smartphone running with the latest operating systems and a powerful processor. Anything less than the current standard is not worth the headache. Smartphone technology is changing rapidly and newer versions of operating systems, better processors and more storage only means that staying behind in this race wouldn’t make sense for you. I keep two smartphone, one Android and one iPhone to get the both worlds in the smartphone sector.

A laptop

Get yourself a super-thin, super powerful and possibly a flexible laptop computer that helps you retain your on-the-go lifestyle with ease. The new generation of laptops are truly amazing, and the touch screen and screen writing features are what I look forward to the most. After all, if we could go from pressing buttons to touching screens on mobile phones, why should we stick to the mouse or touchpads? If you find it difficult to come up with the money for your dream laptop, use a free budget template to help you save throughout the year.

A decent DSLR

Let’s face it- smartphone cameras are good, but when it comes to truly stunning photography, nothing beats a DSLR camera. Maneuvering these cameras is not difficult, and with some information by your side, it would be relatively easy to click some breathtaking shots rather easily. If you like to travel, then a DSLR is a must for you.

A fitness tracker or smartwatch

Yeah! I know smartphones do a lot for us already, but when it comes to fitness tracking, you better stick to a fitness bank like Fitbit or choose a smartwatch. I like how the functionalities of a decent smartphone can fit on your wrist and double up by working as a real-time tracker. I have really enjoyed going out on walks with my fitness tracking band on which has helped me take control of my lifestyle in a much better way.

A Bluetooth speaker

Gone are the days when you had to connect a seemingly endless web of wires to get the best sound. Bluetooth speakers have made your auditory experience much better and easier as well. The speakers these days are designed wonderfully and come with sleek designs and sounds to die for.

Noise cancellation headphones

Want to keep your music only to yourself? Look for noise cancellation headphones. These high-end headphones let you enjoy the acoustics better. I like these headphones because they help me in keeping my focus only on my music. The world is often too distracting for us all, but with the right music on, everything looks better.


If you haven’t experienced TV in 4K, if you haven’t experienced anything at all but there are several other options available to you in television tech that you can buy. I personally prefer the LG Wallpaper TV. There is nothing in the market that could match the beauty and exquisiteness of this TV. It is beautiful, comes with truly stunning picture quality, and the sound is simply amazing. The way it hugs your wall and makes it look like a work of art is a sight to behold.

A tablet

Whether you are a busy executive or a college student, a tablet can get a lot more done than an ordinary smartphone and laptop combined. It makes easier stuff easier to read and comprehend, movies and videos are more fun, and they are better suited to handwriting, creative activities and even for making presentations. I prefer the tablet because I find it easier to work on my projects. Moreover, the small display of the smartphone sometimes strains the eyes, but tablets let you manage it much better.
