It's the day after Christmas, and some of you may be preoccupied with the big gift you got this year. Whether it's an Amazon Alexa or the latest video game, new technology was at the top of many people's holiday wish lists. New York Times Contributor Harold Goldberg and Android Central Managing Editor Daniel Bader explain the top trends this holiday season.

Amazon Alexa was one of the top downloaded apps this holiday season. This app powers all of Amazon's Echo products. "The Echo Spot, in particular, was one that I think took everyone by surprise in its popularity," says Bader.

"Nintendo Switch was the console to get this season," says Goldberg. Another hot product from the video game maker is the Super Nintendo SNES Classic Edition. Goldberg says many consumers are being forced to buy this in-demand product through resellers such as eBay.
