* week of December 7: XBOX ONE and XBOX ONE games; how to work with (and on) techphobic staff
* week of December 14: PS4 and PS4 games; how to deal with tech breakdowns in programs

* week of December 28: other tech stuff I have up my sleeve
Tons of exciting things are just around the corner, so stay tuned!
