Technology Matters-Last Minute Gifts

Technology Matters

    They don’t need the money, but feel free to buy the Nintendo Switch.  The Japanese electronics and video game company is forecasting profits of nearly one-billion dollars.

    In part, large part, because of the immensely popular Switch.

    Product has caught up to demand and Nintendo expects to sell millions more in the coming months.

    The games massive library is drawing in players.  Super Mario game Odyssey is the latest installment of the gaming industry’s best-selling franchise.  Nintendo also released a new Legend of Zelda game earlier this year.

    Here’s a cool gift idea.  Lego’s tribute to women in space: the “Women of NASA Play Set.”  Its been a best seller on Amazon.

    It honors four women who played vital roles in the U-S space program.  Astronauts Sally Ride and Mae Jemison.  Astronomer Nancy Grace roman and computer scientists Margaret Hamilton.

    One problem.  Finding the toy.  You may have to look high and low or even bid on one if you can find it.

    One gift you can’t give until sometime next year is Apple’s Homepod Speaker.  The expensive Siri-powered smart speaker should ship early next year.

    Finally, Momo Pixel tired of people touching her hair so she developed “Hair Nah.” 

    The free game lets you design a character, then smack away as many hands as you can in 60 seconds.

    Fun and funny, but Pixel says it also shows to respect a person’s privacy and personal space.

    The game has gone viral.
