OK~ The holidays are around the corner and you are probably wondering how to keep your family safe online and what the hottest tech accessories this season are. Many tweens and teens will be receiving their first cellular device this holiday season. Anytime parents invest money in their kids, it's of the utmost importance that they are protected. U.S. Cellular's Parent/Child Agreement is a must when it comes to keeping your family safe online. With more and more people using cellular devices, this holiday season is the ideal time to invest in accessories to help use these devices in a smarter way.
Did you know that 38% of smart phone users, play games on their smart phones daily? I am not one of these people, but I do know that many people do. Now, I can be included in the statistic of 49% using their smart phones to check the latest news. I can also be included in the 14% that use the GPS on their smart phones. I honestly thought more than 14% would use it for GPS, as this service can be a great way to navigate when I am in unfamiliar territory.
Cellular devices are fun to use and they are even more fun when you can have some exciting accessories to use. Here's a fun list of tech items for your holiday shopping list.
