Best Tech Gadget Gift Guide

Yay Holidays! Need some gift inspiration for your loved ones? We got you! Check out our recommended tech gift buys for 2016.


*Google Home. $129.99




Google’s foray into a home assistant is budget friendly, and  super handy. Have it do the dirty googling for you, stream music, and manage your tasks and smart home features with this voice activated speaker.


On the other side of the home assistant scale, we also have:


*Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot. $179.99 / $49.99

A bit more expensive, or waaaaay less expensive if you consider the Echo Dot, the Amazon Echo (Alexa) has been around for a while now, and is very well respected as a fantastic addition to people’s homes for playing music, providing information, controlling smart home features, reading the news, setting alarms, etc.


The Echo dot is smaller, and isn’t actually a speaker – so you’ll need to connect it to one via bluetooth or 2.5 Stereo cable. Apart from that, it’s a standalone device that still does all of the above.



*Know someone who enjoys music? I’m guessing you probably do. It might be you. These are pretty much the most highly recommended headphones. Bose QuietComfort QC35 Wireless Headphones $349 from Amazon

Noise-canceling headphones, wireless, over-ear headphones with long battery life, and a niiiice sound quality. Pricey but worth it.




*MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID. From $1,799

The all-new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID is sleeker, lighter, more powerful and feature a great new keyboard,  trackpad, beautiful display and great battery life.  Available with 13-inch and 15-inch display, it features the Touch Bar, which delivers relevant shortcuts and tools for the apps that are in use.




*The RC Lamborghini Veneno from Hammacher Schlemmer. $99.95
This is the RAD AF remote-controlled replica of the exclusive Lamborghini Veneno Roadster.


1:12 scale model faithfully reproduces the original from its aerodynamic hood to its bucket seats and gear shift in its “cockpit” interior. The iconic Lamborghini bull adorns the hubcaps and hood, the LED head- and taillights illuminate, and the exterior is painted the same “Rosso Mars” shade as the full-size version. You know you have someone in your life who’d want this.



GoPro Hero5 Black $399.99 from BestBuy, REI, B&H, other retailers.

If you’re looking to splash some cash this Christmas, and you have an ACTION JACKSON amongst your loved ones, look at the GoPro Hero5 Black. It’s pretty much the premium adventure camera, with voice control, 4K video capture and electronic image stabilization to avoid shaky footage. Plus, you can use it in up to 33 feet of water without any additional housing.



* Roku Ultra. $129 from Amazon $129.00

The Roku Ultra is prettttttuy sweet guys. It delivers 4K content with HDR support for beautiful vision, and it offers more than 3,500 channels, with a remote that has both voice search and a headphone jack for private listening.




* Bluetooth shoe warmers from ThermaCell

Gettin cold, huh? We all have that someone in our lives whose little toesies are always shivering, and this is the answer they will thank you for. Bluetooth Shoe warmers. Check them out.



* Trip on a spaceship with Virgin Galactic $250,000

A gift of making someone into an Astronaut? Yes pelase, on both sides of the gift giving. Very expensive, and with no set date, this one is a little out of reach for most of us, but if you’re reading this and it seems like it’s in reach for you… do it. Just do it. Give someone the gift of being an astronaut. Kind of. 



* Sony Playstation VR. Best Price we saw was $399 with free shipping from Walmart

VR might just be the way of the future, and man, it’s fun. Someone in your life WILL appreciate this. Guaranteed. This is the standalone device, but you can also get the $600 bundle from Amazon that includes the VR headset, camera and two PlayStation Move motion controllers.



*Google Cardboard $15

On the cheaper scale of Virtual Reality, someone in your life will also definitely appreciate this, because it’s amazing. A little harder to source content, but there’s great games and 360 videos out there. You just need a smartphone.



* Nintendo NES Classic Edition $60 Currently sold out at BestBuy and… well, most places. Good Luck!




The NES Classic Edition includes 30 classic games like Super Mario Bros., Mega Man 2, Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda and Pac-Man. Old-school controller is also included, as well as a newer-school HDMI cable. Weeeeee all the way back to the eighties!




* Spectacles by Snap




From SnapChat, these funky glasses capture 10-second circular videos which you can then share in Snapchat. A friendly light on the glasses shows friends that you’re recording, and the Spectacles charge in the included case.

Because of marketing, these are only being sold in ‘bots’ – traveling vending machines. These are placed in a new location about every 48 hours. A countdown will generally start on the Spectacles website 24 hours before the location is unveiled and there’s no clues before then as to where it will drop.

OR visit the pop-up store in that Snap recently opened in New York City at 5 E 59th St across from the Apple store. The location is open Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on the weekends from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.



*The 8,000 Stars Home Planetarium. from Hammacher Schlemmer $129.95


This desktop planetarium projects an accurate view of 8,000 stars and simultaneously plays music from your smartphone. Its built-in LED illuminates the ceiling and walls of a room with an accurate view of 61 constellations as seen from the Northern Hemisphere while a built-in Bluetooth speaker connects to a paired iPhone or Android device and plays one’s preferred ambient star-gazing soundtrack. The planetarium’s whisper-quiet motor simulates the turning of the Earth by slowly moving the image and can be sped up or slowed down with five variable speeds and accurately aligns with every day of the year.




The Child’s 3D Printing Pen. $99.95

Have your kid create three-dimensional works of art with harmless warm thermoplastic that hardens within seconds.  The pen is powered via the included micro-USB cord and is ready to use in less than one minute. Includes eight color plastic packs (192 strands), eight stencil discs, and a project book.



*The Levitating Bluetooth Speaker. $149.95

Sure, there are a lot  of awesome sounding speakers out there. But this one floats. 

It also delivers impressively robust audio from its full-range 5-watt driver when paired with a Bluetooth- or NFC-enabled device up to 30′ away. Volume is controlled from your device and LED-lighted rings on the base and speaker add a mystical glow.



* Lastly, if you’re thinking of buying a loved one a new iPhone, we’d recommend the iPhone 7 Plus. And then, get them to sell their stinky old iPhone to us so it’s like a double Christmas present. Really. A new iPhone and cash. Wrap these with some friends and family love and you’ve got yourself a rockin’ Christmas!



Happy Holidays to everyone!



Happy Holidays!




The iPhone Antidote family would like to wish all of our wonderful customers and blog readers a wonderful and merry Christmas.


The blog will be taking a 2-day hiatus – don’t miss us too much- we’ll be back right after! (A little fatter, and a little bit sore in our smiling muscles.)


We sincerely hope that your Holidays are full of family and love and smiling and some sneaky eggnog and mistletoe!

Tim Cook’s end of year letter to Apple employees



Thanks to 9to5Mac, we have the full letter that Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, sent to his employees. The letter reflects on the last year, cements the ideals of the company and looks forward to 2014.




This holiday season, tens of millions of people around the world, from all walks of life, are experiencing Apple products for the first time. Those moments of surprise and delight are magical, and they’re all made possible by your hard work. As many of us prepare to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve achieved together over the past year.


First and foremost, we introduced industry-leading products in each of our major categories in 2013, showing the breadth and depth of innovation at Apple. We extended our lead in the smartphone market with iPhone 5s; launched iOS 7, an extraordinarily ambitious project; released OS X Mavericks for free to our customers; introduced the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display; and this week began shipping the Mac Pro from a manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas. We also marked our 50 billionth download on the App Store – a milestone no one could have predicted we would reach so quickly.


Together we’ve shown the world that innovation at Apple goes beyond our products to the way we do business and how we give back to our community. This year, Apple raised and donated tens of millions of dollars for important charities and relief efforts like Red Cross aid to typhoon victims in the Philippines, and we continue to be the largest contributor to (PRODUCT)RED, supporting the Global Fund in its fight against the spread of AIDS in Africa. Just a few weeks ago, Jony Ive led an unprecedented effort that brought money and awareness to eliminating the transmission of AIDS from mother to child.


And finally, Apple is standing up for what we believe is right. We know that equality and diversity make our company and our society stronger, so we’ve urged the U.S. Congress to support workplace protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We are also laser focused on our contribution to several environmental initiatives and we will increase our efforts even more in this area in the future.


We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we think customers are going to love. I am extremely proud to stand alongside you as we put innovation to work serving humankind’s deepest values and highest aspirations. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world for the opportunity to work at this amazing company with all of you.


Happy Holidays,





Makes you feel all kinds of goo inside, right? in 2014 we as customers can look forward to a bunch of new and updated software and hardware releases such as the iWatch, iTV, iPhone 6 and a larger iPad.


We’ll be going into the ins and outs of everything we can look forward to early in the new year. It’s very exciting!


Meanwhile, it’s Christmas eve eve! We hope your holiday season is everything you guys could have wished for so far, and is set only to get better!


We wished for a kitten wearing a santa hat and drinking eggnog, as well as a bunch of stinky old iPhones, so things are going excellently!

The really really expensive Christmas Gift Guide (just for fun)



Welcome to our version of what would you buy if someone gave you $20,000,000 and told you you had to spend it, in a store ( online or real) in 10 minutes.


Because we like to think realistically, right?


That’s what we thought.


So just in case this happens to you, we thought we should make sure you’re prepared!


OR if you’re reading this and you are wealthy enough to buy these things for people for Christmas, well, think of this as a perfectly tailored iPhone Antidote Christmas Gift Guide. And can we be your friend?


Here’s some of the most outrageous tech things you can buy on the planet. Some of them are less tech, more just cool. We had to share.


Enjoy (and, um, you might want to get a tissue for that drool.)




The Flying Car.





How else would you get around? A limo? A Bentley? Please.  Reserve one now! 




The Aquaflyer.



The Flying car of the sea! And a must have, because oh gosh how much fun does this look. Enough fun that it makes you say things like Oh Gosh.

Check it out. $9,999.





Your own Private Island. Obviously.




Everyone who is rich and cool has their own private island. Not everyone who is rich has one ( you hear that Kanye?). There’s a bunch you can buy, varying in price from $27613.98 to P.O.A ( Think over 2 Million. At least.)  Check them out here. 



But then you have the age old question: what would you take to a private island?


Uh… How about a hot tub boat?


Done! The Hot Tub Boat.


It’s a boat AND a Hot Tub. It’s settled then. Check it out here.




Get an Aquarium


You can get it to surround your TV or back your home bar. Or YOUR BED COULD BE AN AQUARIUM! That would be so neat, and then you own an entire underwater world. You can call your fish your minions.





 The 1959 Corvette Billiards Table for $25,000



Because it’s pretty. And shiny and red and it’s a pool table. Need we say more? We didn’t think so.





Why not buy a submarine?


Because of all the fishes you can wave to! Think of all the new friends you can make! Like whales! What nice guys those whales are.

$2,000,000.  Check it out here. 





How about an Interactive Pool Table System? Not sure what exactly that is? It’s this:




Transform any pool table into a digitally-enhanced video experience. Apparently seen a lot in Vegas, so you know you should have one. Actually, you know you should have a whole pool table room.

P.O.A. Check it out here. 





Hart Audio “D&W Aural Pleasure”

Loudspeakers Cast in Bronze, Silver & 18ct Gold. Awesome speakers. Like, really awesome, and covered in precious metals, which is actually how we would like to have everything in our house one day.


Bargain price, really, starting at only $65,308.00 for the bronze. Check them out here. 





The Dry Water Jet Massager.

It’s like this fancy pod thing that you get into and there’s..dry water? that massages you. It’s like you’re a rapper but the girls are a fancy pod thingy with fake water.  We’re not sure we explained that right, so you should probably just check it out here. It’s $36,000.





How about a…. Bewjewled Anti-Aging Human Regenerator?




Yes. This.


This machine was on display at the world luxury Expo recently. It’s a blinged out ( think 6880 carats and 172,000 diamonds), human sized machine that a company called System 4 Technologies GmbH made to treat that awful malaise called aging.


The machine apparently slows aging using pulses and frequencies that treat silicon and aluminum deposits in the body’s skin.


AND it’s only $9.8 million dollars! Check it out!




And finally, a smiling gold plated Christmas kitten drinking some star infused milk.



Happy Holidays!

iPhone Antidote’s Holiday Season Tech Gift Guide is here!





iPhone Antidote LOVES christmas. We put our christmas tree up in October, no joke.


AND we’ve been tracking the best gifts this year so you can get everyone in your life the best damn christmas present they’ve ever had. We’re talking tears in the eyes of the toughest man you know kind of christmas gifts. You guys are gonna get so much christmas karma this year!


Although tech stuff tends to be on the higher side of the budget range, we’ve tried to include a broad range of prices AND gifts for a broad range of ages and interests.


We’ve also provided some nice gift viewing music to serenade you whilst you read. Did we mention that we love Christmas?






You ready? Here we go!





Health Conscious 


For the health conscious in the family, any of the Fitbit product line will make for a perfect gift. At iPhone Antidote, we recommend the FitBit One (seen above), but the Fitbit Flex has been reviewed positively as well.


The gadget tracks steps, miles,and other activities undertaken as well as calories taken in and expended, weight and even your sleep patterns. A very effective tool for maintaining or improving healthy living.


The Fitbit range is sold in most good tech stores. The Fitbit One is $99.99 and the FitBit Flex sells for $99.99 everywhere. Try Best Buy or Target.









Cos everyone loves music, right?  And how awesome is it when you can just press a button on a device and music comes pounding out across the room? Or across the campsite? That’s why everyone needs a portable bluetooth speaker, like the Beats by Dre Pill ( shown above), $199.95 at most good techy retailers. Try Macy’s or AT&T.


We’d also highly recommend the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker from Bose. Get it here for $199.99.


Groupon currently has a good deal on the BassBoomz Portable Bluetooth Speaker, usually $130, now $29.99. Click here to see the deal. 


On the other hand, Airplay speakers ( strictly Apple only connectivity)  give better sound quality than bluetooth, but you certainly pay for it. The one we like the most is the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air for $599.99. Click here to get that price. 


The iKross Bluetooth Stereo Music Audio Receiver makes any speaker in your house a bluetooth connectable speaker. Uh, awesome?  Get it for $24.98 here.






Game systems



If you haven’t already snapped up one of these and are wanting to, well, we wish you luck my friend. They are a little scarce on the ground at the moment, but we think that supplies might bulk up towards the pointy end of Christmas. Might.


But if you can, either of these would make a smashing christmas present. Just make sure you get the right one, and we’re not telling you which one that is- they are both awesome, but it is a fierce battle forged in people’s minds as to brand alliance, much like Samsung and Apple products. If the person you’re getting it for has no alliance, you’re good to go on what suits the budget and environment.


The Playstation 4 is $399.99 at Walmart, Best Buy & most good retailers. The Xbox One is $499.99. Consider getting a product bundle as well.


The alternative to the two big players is the Nintendo Wii U for just $299.99 at Best Buy -that’s the Wii U Console Deluxe Set with New Super Mario Bros. U AND New Super Luigi U games.










Games! Woop! These are the top coolest games we can think of to recommend!


Super Mario 3D world – pretty much the best game in the world. For Nintendo consoles. $59.99 with free shipping at Best Buy.


FIFA 14. Solid, fun technical sporting game for $59.99 with free shipping at Best Buy. 


Lego Marvel Superheroes. Awesome fun. (Nintendo) Find the range at Target, starting at  $19.99 for the Nintendo DS version. 


Grand theft auto V. The game everyone’s been talking about! Be warned, this is not the game to get your 10 year old! Mature themes run throughout, but those, uh, mature enough to play it? They say it rocks socks. In a more mature way of saying that. Available now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.$59.99 at Best Buy.


Groupon currently have a deal to buy Just Dance 2014 for Wii, Xbox 360 Kinect, or PS3 Move . Super fun and easy game for everyone to play. Usually $39.99, now only $29.99. 










We scrounged the very bowels of the internet to get the top 5 coolest kids toys for your little munchkins this year.


The new Furby Boom toys are the most interactive Furbies yet. And they’re back, in a BIG way. Starting at $47.80 at Walmart. 


Snap Circuits – super award winning learning toy, where the objective is to build projects such as AM radios; burglar alarms; games, etc. Shop Amazon for $45.07 with Prime here.


Romo Robotic Pet for iOS. Romo is a little guy creature ( downloadable app) that lives in your iOS device – attached to his wheels he can roll around, snap photos and interact with and adapt to his environment.  Get this at Brookstone for $199.99. 


Ubooly Smart Toy is an interactive smart toy that doubles as a really cute little thing AND an educational toy with 1,000+ fun activities for ages 4-10. Ubooly tells stories, plays games, teaches lessons and every week, new activities are pushed wirelessly to your mobile device. Yes please.

$29.99 at Amazon.


Laser Pegs (seen above). The best light up building construction set you’ve ever seen.

Pay $13.98 for a limited time at Target.






iPhone  accessories


The iStabiliser Monopod. A smartphone and gadget holder thingy, so your photos turn out super stable, and your arm doesn’t hurt when you’re filming. Get it here for $ $34.95.


Hellonomad Charge card (seen above).USB powered charge card that is the size of two credit cards, so can fit easily in your wallet.  Get it here for $25.


For cases, we reccomend trying out either Opena case for function ( they have the bottle opener case among others) or Red Bubble for design.


Groupon currently has a deal for Agloves Touchscreen Winter Gloves, so you can use all your smart gadgets even when it’s super cold! Usually $25.99, now only $ 7.99! Get in fast, it’s super limited. 








Gifts under $50


South Park: Kenny 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive for $13.99 with free shipping at Amazon.


Satechi USB Portable Amazing Humidifier for $29.99 with Prime at Amazon.


Message In A Bottle 4GB USB Flashdrive  – $14.99 at Amazon. 


Groupon currently has a deal on for the HMDX Bluetooth Speaker & Alarm Clock with Apple Lightning Pin Dock. Usually $79.99 now only $39.99! Get it here. 


iHip Robot Mini Speaker. Super cute brightly colored little speaker guys! Groupon currently has them down from $29.99 to just $6.99. Excellent stocking stuffer!










No matter what age, a Heli or Quadcopter will bring a lot of joy this holiday season. The best of the lot would be the Stunt Copter ( seen above) at Brookstone for $69.99.  It takes a little learning, but comes with a repair kit and takes some good smashes with no damage. Designed for inside and outside play, it’s a perfect toy that takes some practice- but the practice is hella fun.


For more of a toy than a project, we’d recommend this the Hovermaxx UFO RC Helicopter, for only $19.99 from Brookstone, it’s perfect for beginners age 6 and up for inside play and includes 6 LED lights on the device.


For the Quads, we’d definitely recommend the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 App-Controlled Quadricopter ($299.99 at Brookstone), it’s big brother the Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter Power Edition which lets you stay in the air for 3 x longer ($369.99 at Brookstone), or if you want to go REALLY LARGE – the DJI Phantom Aerial UAV is really top notch. Check it out. ($453.44 with prime at Amazon)







Smartwatch if you cants wait ( but we suggest you do).

If you or one of your loved ones realllly can’t wait for the iWatch or similar expected far advanced tech, then it’s ok, we got you.


We recommend the Pebble Watch if you’re after a standalone smart watch (173.99 from Amazon), or the Martian Passport Smart Watch if you’re after a stylish accessory to go with your smartphone ($299 with Prime from Amazon).


Both are great Smart Watches and hella stylish to match, but expect big advances in battery time and capabilities as early as next year in their own updates and in new products.








Cool things



Light show fountain speakers. Turn on your favorite jam ( do we still say jam for music? ) and the water inside the speakers will dance to the beat and the 4 multi-colored LEDs will light up. Super rad.  $49.99 from Thinkgeek.


GoPro Hero 3. You’ve all seen the video’s right? These are the cameras that you attach to things as you go hurtling down a ski-field, climbing up a rock or simply hiking to the ocean. They’re also beginning to be a must have. Starting at $199.99 


Bird Photo booth. Catch the au naturale side of your backyard bird friends with this bird photo booth. Uses your own iPhone or GoPro, but comes with macros and polarising lenses. You can also, uh, talk to the birds using FaceTime?  $149.99 from Thinkgeek.


Game boy watch. Everyone loves vintage gamer stuff! And now you can wear it on your hand! $86.87 including shipping here.



Perfect Drink App-Controlled Smart Bartending. Exactly what it says it is; a fancy cocktail machine. It includes a smart scale and app that lets you choose from hundreds of drink recipes, follow real-time pouring instructions, and watch as a virtual glass fills on your smartphone or tablet, as well as suggesting what drinks you can make from what you have. (Kahlua and Bacardi 151 anyone?)  $69.99 from Brookstone. 







Really cool things




ELECTRIC DELOREAN DMCEV.Brought to you by the DeLorean Motor Company in association with Epic EV, the Electric DeLorean is battery powered but its AC induction liquid-cooled electric motor packs 260 horsepower. That means a top speed of 125mph and 0-60 in 4.9 seconds.


Great Scott!


$114,733 from Firebox.






The Flying Hovercraft. Yes, it’s a flying hovercraft.  It glides over land and water yet also soars in the air up to 70 mph with the aid of integrated wings. A 130-hp twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled gasoline engine, turbocharged and fuel-injected, drives its 60″ wood/carbon composite thrust propeller while a 1,100-rpm 34″ lift fan inflates its durable vinyl-coated nylon skirt for hovering above the ground.




Only $190,000 from Hammacher Schlemmer.



That’s a wrap! ( get it? …Christmas wrap? I hope you guys found some nice gift ideas for your loved ones and enjoyed the dulcet tones of Miss Mariah!


Happy Happy Holidays!
