A Gift Guide for the Surface Geek and Home Server Guy 244

• December 12, 2013

If you asked a Surface Geek what to get someone for Christmas, this is what you would hear!  It’s not just a list of Surface Pros but actually a nice list of stocking stuffers, under $100, under $500, and a list of large gifts.  It starts with a bang and I almost got laughed off of the podcast!  You will have to tune in to find out why.  We also cover the news of the week. Start Menu returning and Nokia forks the Droid.  Enjoy!
