We wish you a social Christmas

I admit, I am a geek deep down. But I am also a Christmas geek so here is a run down of my top social media related xmas gifts.

Don’t get me wrong, I am one of Google’s number 1 fans! I use it for email, calendar, documents, etc etc. But my worry is, how difficult would it be to get people.. Read More
