Gift Guide Roundup

With the holiday shopping season in full effect, the Internet is awash in gift guides. These gift guides are ostensibly prepared to help us find the right gifts for our friends and family, but let’s face it, we really use them to get a final rundown of the year’s best tech gadgets and make our own Santa wish lists. At least we are honest about our intentions here at Missing Remote. If you’re still writing your letter to Santa you might want to check out some of the gift guides best suited to us humble geeks.
