The holidays are just around the bend and I'll take a guess that you
probably haven't started your holiday shopping just yet. But fret not because we've got a complete Gift Guide for you in this issue, at least
for the tech-loving individual on your gift list (such as yourself). Even if you don't find that perfect gift on our list, it is sure to
