Gus Sentementes, tech reporter for the Baltimore Sun, gives us his list for the best tech gifts this season.

Gus’ Gift Guide

The Lytro —  It uses new technology to capture the entire field of light in a photo, allowing for incredible manipulation of the digital image after it’s taken. You’ll never have out of focus images again.
Twine —  This little gadget allows you to hook up things — not just computers and phones — to the Internet. For instance, you can set it up with a sensor to Tweet you if your basement floods.

Amazon Kindle Fire —   The Kindle Fire lets you shop the entire Amazon catalog of stuff, from books to songs to videos. This could be a hot seller for people who just want a decent tablet, and aren’t willing to pay the Apple iPad premium of $500 or more.

iPhone/iPad/smartphone Accessories — accessories are now a huge business. people love to adorn their phones and tablets with cool cases. I’m interested in the ZaggFolio, an iPad case that turns the device into a laptop-like experience, with a full keyboard.

The Withings — This scale connects to your Wi-Fi network in your home. You step on it and it takes your weight and other body measurements and beams the numbers to a Web application and an iPhone application. You can track your weight effortlessly and overtime, and the charts are automatically updated. Very cool.
