It’s hard to believe that another year has already passed us by. After a slow start, Capytech really got a great deal of momentum. Our team grew quickly and we secured our biggest clients yet.  Our products have continued to improve and we’ve developed some great tech and e-learning.

All in all 2017 has been a breakthrough year for us. 2014 was the start and 2015/16 saw us go full time and figure out how to make this all work. 2017 has seen the culmination of those efforts. There’s still a lot to be done and many areas to improve, but more than ever I’m excited about the future and what 2018 brings!

Instead of tech of the month, I’ve made a festive tweak. So instead I’ve listed some cool stocking stuffers that you might consider. Of course it’s tech focused, but I can’t help myself!

Wishing everyone a wonderful festive period and New Year. From me, Jason and the whole Capytech team - we hope 2017 was full of success and happiness and that 2018 brings even more!

Festive Season Stocking Stuffers
Instead of a gadget of the month, I thought we’d do some stocking stuffer tech! Here are five cool things you might want to gift for a love one this holiday season
Echo Dot
Smart devices are slowly getting more and more common in our households. I love the Amazon array of Alexa products as they are low cost and have lots of custom features. Whilst not fully optimised for the region, they are very good at controlling your household smart devices, playing music and answering basic queries.
I just love this simple idea. If you travel with lots of electronics like me, then getting everything all tangled up is a real pain! No more with this simple organisers that can go anywhere with you.
Henty CoPilot
This was featured some months ago, and it’s worth shouting out again. Made by a mate of mine in Tasmania, this bag now travels everywhere with me and is ideal if you’re travelling on business or leisure.
Eero Mesh Network
For those of you that live in big apartments/villas here in Dubai/Abu Dhabi - then this might be a lifesaver! Struggled with getting wifi into some of your rooms? A mesh network is the latest tech that looks to solve this. This gets great reviews for it’s ease of setup, and you wont need to worry about dead spots again.
Apple AirPods
Another tip from some months ago. I simple love my AirPods, seamless connection, auto-pause, Siri integration (although I hate Siri). This has got to be Apple’s best innovation in years. These are becoming more and more common a site here in the UAE - honestly, who wants cables!!
