You’ve seen the Coke advert, you’ve bought your first pack of mince pies and you can already feel the tension bristling around the dinner table – Christmas is on the way!
But it’s not officially the festive season until Father Stuffmas arrives – and the January issue of the mag has a whole sackful of gift ideas, from coding toys for tech kids, to upright turntables for space-starved vinyl nerds. In fact, there are over 100 must-have gifts for geeks of all kinds.
If you’ve got Lego on your list, this month’s Upvoted is our pick of the best boxes of bricks, although be warned: our top pick has nearly 4000 pieces, so don’t start building unless you’re ready for the long haul.
Made friends with Amazon’s Alexa recently? We’ve put together a list of tips and tricks for the Echo that’ll allow you to get the most out of your talking Pringles tube (or the dinkier Dot), while this month’s Top Tens will tell you what the best reading app is, how to buy a sports watch, the best software to feed to your Mac and whether it’s worth upgrading to Fujifilm’s X-T2.
Upfront there’s the usual pick of the hottest new tech this month, while we’ve been hard at work testing gadgets from the PS4 Pro to Yuneec’s flying selfie stick.
Don’t forget, loads of this stuff can only be found by buying a copy of the mag, which you can pick up from both physical and digital newsstands right now.
