So, you’re more of a Christmas Eve panic buyer than a super organised ‘Oh I do all my shopping in August to get the best damn deals around’ - that’s okay, bro…before you go rushing off to Tesco to buy the first DVD in sight, take a look at my last minute giftspiration. I’ve got you covered, bro.
A few weeks back I managed to be one of the first to get my hands on the New Apple TV. The fourth generation features a completely reconfigured system. A new operating system in tvOS see’s Apps take centre stage and not to mention the new remote, the Siri remote - chat, swipe and click your way through the best movies, shows, games and so much more.
So, should you buy one? I personally think it would make a pretty awesome present, it isn't like you’re gifting someone Sky TV - one of those awkward ‘we bought you it and signed you up to £30 a month’ gifts. Apple TV is free, you simply pay as you want, films, music, TV shows, apps and games are all available, some are free and some are paid so it’s completely in the users hands.
The Siri remote is pretty damn awesome, mid-way through a film press and hold the Siri button and ask it questions such as ‘who is she’ to find out the list of actors in the film or even more complex questions like ‘what did he just say?’ and Siri will wind it back a few seconds to play it again, never be interrupted by a popcorn packet again!
There’s a huge amount of apps and games available, with Mango fronting the fashion corner, YouTube taking it social and Guitar Hero fighting strong for games. Apple have some huge brands involved and whilst you’re using this on your TV…it’s still fantastic, the graphics, the usability and everything in-between…they’re all quintessentially Apple.
Prices start from £129.00 and it’s available right over here - this is perfect for the tech-lover in your life and really will make a fantastic gift…I bet they even get you on Just Dance on Boxing Day!
