Tech News for Tuesday December 15th 2015


10 days until Christmas and bah humbug, I hate this time of the year as it makes me miss my Mom more than ever, and everyone who’s died really. I just don’t like it anymore and I can’t wait until it’s over. Christmas isn’t what it used to be, it’s now about who can buy the most stuff, and that’s not Christmas, or at least the Christmas I remember it to be… Whatever, enough form me, how about the tech news…
