Make the upcoming school year a little easier
There's a chill in the air that wasn't there a few weeks ago, the leaves are starting to change color, and old man Jenkins has already called the cops three times because those pesky kids keep crossing over his lawn in the wee hours of the morning. Yep, it's the end of summer and the beginning of the back-to-school shopping season. Are you prepared? Do you have all the electronics and gadgets you need to survive another semester of classes? What about your offspring?
Don't worry if you answered "no" to any or all of the above questions, you've come to the right place. We live and breathe technology, and no matter what the season, it's our job to keep up with the latest trends and hottest electronics gear. With that in mind, we've put together a gallery of over a dozen tech gift ideas and recommendations. It's not essential to own every item on the list, though each and every pick is designed to make the school season a little easier to bear in some way.
