JBL Flip 3

JBL's third-generation Flip wireless speaker has a more streamlined, splash-proof design and better battery life (at 10 hours), while the price remains the same at £79. And as with all such speakers, the JBL plays any audio content from a Bluetooth-enabled source -- nearly any smartphone or tablet, and most recent computers -- so long as it's in the same room or relatively nearby. (Want more Bluetooth speaker options? Check out our list of best portable mini Bluetooth speakers.)

Amazon Fire TV (2015)

Amazon's Fire TV does have some cool advantages over Roku and competing devices, including excellent parental controls, great support and the ability to work with tricky hotel and dorm-room Wi-Fi systems.

The current Fire TV box also delivers next-generation 4K video for less than any other 4K-compatible streamer (although most 4K TVs have built-in apps that can do the same thing). Plus, its Alexa voice-assistant feature offers cool tricks like replying to your queries about the weather and adding stuff to a to-do list. The core Fire TV bundle is now £80.

Google Chromecast Ultra

Google has upgraded its video streamer for 2016 with (you guessed it) 4K and HDR compatibility. At £69 it's great if you prefer to control your video from your phone or tablet -- and if you don't need Amazon Prime video.

Not only has Amazon upgraded its Fire HD 8 with improved performance and more memory (16GB instead of 8GB), but it's dropped its price by 40 percent. At just £90, it's a steal.

Adonit Pixel

When it comes to iPad styluses, the Apple Pencil has understandably gotten most of the press. But that digital pen only works with iPad Pros.

Adonit's new Pixel (£80), which the company calls its most accurate and responsive stylus to date, with an improved 1.9mm Pixelpoint tip, is compatible with several iPads -- nine to be exact -- not just the top-end ones.

Like Adonit's two earlier styluses, the Jot Script and the Touch, the Pixel is Bluetooth-enabled and turns on automatically when pressed to the screen when using certain note-taking and sketch apps that have built-in Pixel support. It also ships with a magnetic charger and dock that plugs into the USB port on your computer.
