The Latest Technology Must Haves
Posted 15/10/2015 by BrightHouse Team
Modern technology is a big part of our everyday lives, whether it’s using your smartphone to check the weather, chatting to friends over Skype, or streaming films to your TV. New gadgets and devices seems to arrive all the time too, so it can feel a bit overwhelming when figuring out what might be useful to you.
We decided to put together our list of the current technology must haves, so you can get a snapshot of all the best and most useful tech out there.
Only a few years ago, tablets were still a bit of an unknown. What are they for? Where do I use them? These days though, you see them used everywhere from on the train, in shops, or just sitting at home browsing the internet. There is also a lot of choice available, giving you many options for finding the one that’s best for you. Take a look at our guide to choosing a tablet here: Tablet Buying Guide
The way we watch television has changed a lot in recent years. Remembering to watch your favourite show at 6pm on Friday is a thing of the past with digital recording and on-demand channels. You have the latest films, classic TV, and all sorts of shows at your fingertips whenever you want them via the internet. Netflix is probably the best known streaming service, but you also have access to lots of content with Amazon Prime Instant Video, as well the latest films to rent instantly from iTunes and Google Play.
To watch all this great content, you need the latest in viewing technology. You’ve probably heard the term ‘4K screen’ being used – it basically describes the number of pixels creating the images you see, and the more pixels, the clearer and more amazing the image. There’s still not a huge amount of 4K content yet, but the future is definitely headed in that direction. Netflix is already streaming content in 4K, and Blu-ray players are becoming more and more sophisticated. Check out the selection at BrightHouse here: Ultra HD TVs
Next generation games consoles
Gaming is one of the most popular forms of home entertainment, and it’s not hard to see why. Modern gaming offers a huge range of experiences and challenges for different tastes, from classic shooters to immersive, story-driven adventures, as well as education and unlimited creativity. The easiest way to enjoy this world of fun is through the latest consoles from Xbox and PlayStation, which simply hook up to your TV and let you get straight in and start playing. Check out the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 here: Gaming.
Most people have smartphones already these days, but they can’t escape being mentioned in any list of must-have tech. How did we live before them? Your smartphone connects you with a whole world of social media, messaging, browsing, information, shopping, organising, and it even makes phone calls. There are some amazing new models out there too, such as the Samsung Galaxy Edge with its curved screen, and the latest iPhone with fingerprint security.
