For the first time ever, online sales during this past holiday season were greater than sales from brick and mortar establishments. Leo says that while it's not surprising that more people are shopping online, it is surprising that it took this long for more people to embrace it than shopping in a physical store.
Leo says that giving a "geek gift" is an expensive proposition, but there are some great deals out there. For iPad owners, Leo likes the Slope stand from Dekke. It uses nanofoam suction to mount an iPad or iPad Mini onto the stand. This means it keeps a tight grip on the device, without damaging the back of the iPad. It would make a good, although somewhat expensive stocking stuffer.
