Video Transcription:

00:00 Hey everybody welcome back to Tech-Talk

00:02 I’m Jeff Bromley and I’m Rob Barra and

00:03 we’re here with our special holiday

00:05 gift-giving guide of really the things

00:07 that we want to buy for our kids we had

00:08 a lot of fun doing this video last year

00:10 and we wanted to bring it back but we

00:12 want to make sure that the message from

00:15 last year’s video is absolutely still

00:19 clear to you do not under any

00:22 circumstances buy those stupid password

00:25 books that they sell on

00:28 the check lane of every store well

00:32 hold on you can just don’t

00:34 write your password down in if you are

00:36 going to buy this book why would

00:38 you do anything other than write hey

00:40 here’s my bank information right there

00:42 well you don’t do it

00:44 bad idea know if you get one of these

00:47 and you do decide to use it please write

00:49 in code please then they’re not gonna

00:51 remember it okay fine all right well

00:54 what’s the next thing on a holiday

00:56 gift-giving so the best thing now we’re

00:58 gonna tailor this because you know we

00:59 have Jeff and I both have children right

01:01 around the same ages we’re gonna talk a

01:02 little bit about what if you were in our

01:05 shoes what you should get you for your

01:07 kids so the first thing that if you have

01:10 a teenager or above you’re gonna want to

01:12 pick up a pair of Apple’s new AirPods

01:15 Pro these things are absolutely

01:18 incredible I bought a parent literally

01:20 the first day that I could and aside

01:22 from being in a new little form factor

01:24 they’ve got a neat little earpiece

01:26 that can be sized it doesn’t

01:28 actually fall out of your head it has a

01:30 neat little thing called noise

01:32 cancellation and for when you don’t want

01:35 to listen to your kids or your kids

01:37 don’t want to listen to you you just put

01:39 them in and you can’t hear anything is

01:45 he talking cuz I don’t hear you well

01:47 normally you tell me I don’t understand

01:49 what you’re saying I’m sure alright AirPods

01:51 Pro fantastic get AppleCare it’s

01:54 really good and if you lose one it’s a

01:56 lot cheaper to replace them these things

01:58 cost about $250 so you definitely want

02:01 to do that another one of our favorites

02:03 that we’ve talked about in the past that

02:04 we’re gonna talk about again today in

02:06 something that both Rob and I have is

02:08 the Apple watch we think these are

02:11 phenomenal version I think there were

02:13 the fifth but even if you’ve got an

02:15 older version of it these things are

02:17 amazing you know the sales

02:19 especially right now absolutely so these

02:21 things are wonderful you don’t even need

02:22 a phone to pair with anymore so if

02:24 you’re an Android user you can still get

02:25 one of these they have their own app

02:27 store they’re really a great piece has

02:29 full protection and everything else like

02:30 that so that’s actually a good point so

02:32 I know last year I bought one of these

02:35 from my mother because I was always

02:36 afraid of her falling and you know I

02:39 wasn’t with her or someone wasn’t with

02:41 her her phone is normally near her so

02:43 this actually has

02:44 fourth-generation has something called

02:46 fall detection built-in and if you fall

02:49 it will detect that with the

02:52 accelerometers that are built into it

02:53 and it’ll actually ask you hey did you

02:55 just take a fall and if you don’t answer

02:57 it’ll actually call 9-1-1 and with

02:59 built-in GPS and things like that it

03:01 really could save your life so it’s a

03:03 it’s a great piece of hardware not to

03:04 mention in terms of saving lives the EKG

03:07 function that is that it’s built into it

03:09 can also you know can also diagnose a

03:12 couple different versions of

03:14 febrile from a-fib yes that’s right

03:17 we’re not doctors sometimes we pretend

03:20 to be them but we’re not doctors okay

03:22 and then last but not least and this is

03:24 Rob’s absolute favorite one now this is

03:26 you don’t have to get this version this

03:28 is the special Pokemon nation and Zan

03:31 Ascentia edition of the Nintendo Switch

03:33 light this thing is fantastic so I

03:35 picked up one of these when the new

03:37 Pokemon game came out and my children

03:40 immediately tried to start stealing it

03:42 from me it is a fully functional

03:44 Nintendo switch it does not plug into a

03:47 television and it does not have

03:49 removable joi cons so it’s great for the

03:51 car it’s great for trips it’s great too

03:54 for even for you to steal and bring

03:56 along with you on your business trips

03:57 fantastic games available for this thing

04:00 and if you have any shiny’s you want to

04:03 trade me just put me on and that’s all

04:07 we have for this holiday edition of Tech-
