(CNN Business)Smartphones, laptops and gaming consoles remain at the top of holiday wish lists, but this year we at CNN Business are reflecting on the tech, services and apps that truly made a big impact on our everyday lives.

I've improved my pathetic mile time with its help, and I can happily report that I'm as fit as 14-year-old me once again.

It can be time-consuming, which is great when you've got a lot of time on your hands.

I also spent a good bit of time playing around on a free app called Think Dirty, which rates household products based on how "clean" they are.

I've used the free Discord app popular among gamers and in esports since its testing release in 2015, but this year I did more.

(The latest UE Boom 3 costs $150, but you can find the older model I use for about $70 if you shop around. ) The coolest feature is PartyUp, which allows you to connect as many as 50 UE speakers through the "Ultimate Ears" app.

I've refrained from connecting my two speakers together, though, as my apartment is small, and I don't want a third noise complaint.

Last year, my family and I went without electricity for days at a time -- that meant no refrigeration, Wi-Fi or ability to charge our devices.

We thankfully only needed it for two nights this year, but it kept our food from going bad and allowed us to stay connected to up-to-date information.
