There's still time to grab a gift for that geek in your life. Here is our list of what you should buy me, I mean, him...
It’s that time of year again- egg nog lattes, overly-done colorful light shows, 24 hours of “A Christmas Story” on the TV, and a miserable retail shopping experience. Want to know how to make your shopping experience a little less painful?
Avoid the retail experience altogether- by doing all of your shopping online. There are plenty of gifts you can find online for your favorite Star Wars fan or tech’d out geek. Here is a list of some great geeky gift ideas for that special someone.
