The Holidays are rapidly approaching and the money you’ve been saving up to shop with to make good on some fun gadgets for the the holiday shopping season has finally come to fruition. In hindsight, this has been an incredible year for some great new product releases. We’ve seen new phones by Amazon and Apple – Sony delivered on the new PS4, while Microsoft stepped up with the new Surface Pro 3, and I’m only scratching the surface here (no pun intended).
