If you are still looking for that technology gift for someone close, there are still many devices out there worth considering. Whether you are considering a tablet, Bluetooth audio device, battery backup, or online service, there are still opportunities to find products in stores. With Christmas coming on Tuesday, you will have the weekend to hunt for your devices locally.

The iPad mini is a very worthy device for those looking to read, play games, and browse the web on a tablet. The iPad mini feels fairly snappy. Simple games such as Angry Birds or Tiny Wings did not miss a beat. Each app loaded as quickly as you would expect form an iPad. Browsing the web was just as fluid as on an iPhone or previous iPads. Using the multi-touch gestures to swipe through apps and close them felt comfortable and quick. The iPad mini can be found at numerous retail locations besides the Apple Store.
