Tech gifts don’t have to be about screen sizes or processing capabilities these days. In fact, they don’t have to be physical gifts at all. You can put a smile on a loved one’s face just by setting them up with one of the many ace online digital services and subscription packages that are tied into apps, download and streaming sites too.
From music packages like Spotify to productivity programs like Dropbox, there’s something here for everyone.
Spotify has taken the world by storm, allowing users to stream millions upon millions of songs to their PCs, Macs, smartphones, MP3 players, and even some home cinema packages, without the need to download any of the songs to a hard-drive. A big year for the service, it's now tied into Facebook feeds, as well as being available to US customers. A capped deal for the service is available free, letting you listen to a limited number of tracks on a computer each month, but the best deal is the £9.99 Premium offer. This gives you full, unlimited access to the entire catalogue, and lets you take the tracks mobile using the Spotify app. It also gives you the ability to download tracks over Wi-Fi for offline playback, meaning you need not rack up costly data charges playing music when on the go.
