It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, not so much in the UK. It’s cold, rainy and a litte grey. WHERE’S THE SNOW! But, even though we’re hindered by our horrific British weather, it still doesn’t stop us from getting ready for the big day! As usual, we’re showcasing some of the tech that we’ve seen over the last year in our annual Christmas gift guide. Take a look, and splash some cash this year!
