30 tech gifts for teens that fit all budgets and interests
  The latest technology can help your teen stay connected with you and their friends and nurture their favorite hobbies. We found the 30 best tech gifts for teens that fit all budgets and interests. If they like music, you can gift wireless earbuds, a portable Bluetooth speaker, or an Otamatone musical instrument. If not, there are gift options like gaming systems, LED backpacks, and instant cameras.  Growing up in the Information Age has exposed teenagers to a broad range of interests. They have many more opportunities to enjoy a wide array of experiences. This freedom is exciting for these youngsters, but it makes it hard for us older folks to figure out which gifts will inspire versus end up forgotten under the bed. Fortunately, I was able to consult with a teenager — my 16-year-old son Jerome — and asked him what items he was geeking out on. The holiday gift guide also includes tech and electronics that Jerome is constantly borrowing from me and gifts that both you and your teen will love. The teen in your life is sure to enjoy one of these 30 tech gifts during the holidays. As you'll see, there is a broad range of ways to nurture their interests with the vast universe of tech products flooding the market. The 5 best tech gifts for teens: A Nintendo Switch A notebook that sends their notes to the cloud A unique electronic musical instrument that's big in Japan A beanie with built-in headphones that pair with their phone A power bank with enough juice to charge a phone five times Check out all 30 tech gifts for teens:A 3D pen with plastic refills in 15 different colors Amazon 3Doodler Create+ 3D Printing Pen, available at Amazon, $79.99 I didn't know anything about 3D pens until Jerome introduced them to me. You plug the pen into a wall outlet, load up the plastic color of your choice, and once the pen heats the plastic, you're ready to extrude. It comes with an app that provides step-by-step interactive instructions that help you complete custom art projects. An instant camera with a selfie mirror and flash Amazon Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera, available at Amazon, $46.99 Several manufacturers have taken the classic Polaroid camera experience and ran with it. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 is one of the top alternatives. It features an LED flash for low-light photos and a small mirror by the lens for taking selfies. It takes pictures that are 2.4 inches by 1.8 inches. You'll need to buy film for the camera, which is reasonably priced at about $0.50 per picture. A unique electronic musical instrument that’s big in Japan Amazon Otamatone Deluxe Electronic Musical Instrument, available at Amazon, $64.99 This was another one I knew nothing about until Jerome clued me in. You press the middle part of the Otamatone and slide your fingers up and down it to create higher and lower tones. You can also create a "wah" sound by opening and closing its mouth. It takes 3 AA batteries (included) and can connect to speakers, amps, and headphones.

How Evansville stunned No. 1 Kentucky
Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images The biggest upset of the 2019-20 college basketball season to date went down Tuesday night inside Rupp Arena. Heading into Tuesday night, the Evansville Purple Aces had never won a road game over a team ranked in the Associated Press top 25 poll. They won’t soon forget their first, and neither will anyone else. The Aces got 18 points from senior guard K.J. Riley and 17 from Arizona State/Kansas transfer Sam Cunliffe as they stunned No. 1 Kentucky, 67-64 inside Rupp Arena. The Wildcats had previously been 39-0 when ranked No. 1 and hosting an unranked non-conference opponent. For second-year head coach Walter McCarty, a star on Kentucky’s 1995-96 national championship team, the return to Rupp was shockingly sweet. evansville basketball is back pic.twitter.com/yT933bIZ8R— Harry Lyles Jr. (@harrylylesjr) November 13, 2019 Perhaps the most staggering thing about the most staggering upset of the 2019-20 season to date is how superior the 25-point underdog looked from tip to final horn. The Aces killed Kentucky with straight line drives More often than not, seismic upsets in college basketball feature an undersized, out-manned squad going nuts from beyond the arc and catching Goliath on an off-shooting night. That wasn’t the case here. Evansville shot just 9-of-30 from beyond the arc and 38.3 percent from the field overall. The Aces also didn’t make up for their deficiencies with a huge free-throw disparity. Instead, they were outscored 20-12 by Kentucky at the charity stripe. Where Evansville excelled Tuesday night was with straight line drives by one of the at least three guards they had on the floor at all times. Kentucky’s Immanuel Quickley, Tyrese Maxey and Ashton Hagans (who is known as one of the better on-ball defenders in the country) struggled to keep Evansville’s guards out of the lane, and the help from their teammates on the backend was too often mistimed. The result was far too many easy buckets around the rim for an undersized underdog with no business competing with the No. 1 team in the country in that manner. Evansville also won the battle of the boards Kentucky’s primary concern going into the season was its frontcourt, which had experience with sophomore E.J. Montgomery and junior Nick Richards, but not a lot of proven production. That weakness bit them on Tuesday night, as the Wildcats were out-rebounded 38-35 by the smaller Aces. Also of note is that despite the fact that Evansville did the bulk of its damage around the rim, guard Tyrese Maxey and forward Nate Sestina recorded Kentucky’s only two blocked shots of the evening. The Aces never rattled It’s not exactly unheard of this early in the season to see a massive underdog race out to an early lead on a blue-blood’s home floor. What is shocking is to see said underdog not bat an eye while taking blow after blow once the favorite finally wakes up. When Evansville’s 34-30 halftime lead turned Into a 48-46 Kentucky advantage at the 11-minute mark of the second half, the common thought was that the fun was coming to an end. Instead, Shamar Givance promptly responded with a three-pointer and Artur Labinowicz to put the Aces bask ahead by three. They never trailed again, and never trailed by more than three at any point during the game. That’s not the type of resolve you expect to see from any underdog in this type of situation, let alone one that was picked before the season to finish eighth in the 10-team Missouri Valley Conference. Men's basketball teams favored by 25 points or more are now 944-6 (.994) since 2003-04. Evansville's upset win is tied for the third largest in that span.— Kelly Dickey (@RealCardGame) November 13, 2019 Before Tuesday night, John Calipari had never lost a home game as Kentucky’s coach against un unranked non-conference opponent. Kentucky as a program had won 52 consecutive games against said foes. As for Evansville, they were paid $90,000 by UK to come to Lexington and pull off the biggest win in school history. Not a bad Tuesday night.
