I am often amazed at how fast the Christmas season approaches. In one moment I think its way too early to even talk about it and the next you have to hustle because time is running out. So over the next seven or so days I am going to make gift suggestions from the world of technology. There will be ideas for the novice and the expert and the young and the old.
Today I thought I would suggest an idea for the whole family that is experiential. This idea was actually inspired by my sister Terrell Wong, who gave us a great birthday gift this year that allowed us to experience one of our favourite things to do.
She gave us the gift of movies. We love going to movies and renting movies.
So how about giving the gift on movie entertainment. Since we are in Canada I am going to suggest Canadian sites.
If they don’t already subscribe I would suggest Netflix. For $8 per month you get a wide range of movies and tv shows. In the last month I watched Ghost Protocol with Tom Cruise and watched the last season of the TV series Damages. Not everything is recent but it has a large library and I think a really good children’s section.
Want to see the latest rental release. If you are still on cable you can rent from your cable service provider. We gave up cable this fall (a story for later) and we rent movies from Cineplex and YouTube. With Cineplex you can earn points toward free movies and they are often a little less expensive than other streaming options. So why not get a gift certificate from Cineplex. You can buy them online. And they can be used online as well as at the theater. As an fyi, Cineplex streaming can only work with Internet Explorer.
