Raiding during big holidays can be a bit of a sore spot for many guild masters, raiders, and other members of your raiding guild. When large content patches like Hour of Twilight come out so close to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, and every other holiday I missed that happens in t...

Apple has begun brodcasting a new holiday ad: 12 Apps of Xmas. Though it's not nearly as cool as past Christmas ads, it does spotlight some interesting apps, including one app (Schlage LiNK) that can light up a Christmas tree, at least when it's paired with the appropriate Z-Wave home automation mo...

There's still some other holiday coming up this year, followed by New Year's Day, followed by Valentine's Day, and so on and so forth.

We loved Triazzle 3.0 [iTunes Link] when it came out in July, but with winter nearly upon us it's time to dust off the sleigh bells and dreidels because Triazzle Holiday [iTunes Link] is here in a new seasonally-inspired version.

No matter what holiday you celebrate this time of year, one thing is generally guaranteed; the presence of presents! The team here has bounced things back and forth and we've gone all across the gaming gamut. Some of us can't wait to get our hands on Rock Band or one of those ever-elusive Wiis; oth...

Just in case you missed the memo -- and have subsequently wondered why the mall traffic has been just unmanageable of late -- the holiday season is upon us, and there's no better way to celebrate than by picking up one of Walletex's newest flash drives.

It's no secret that the candles can serve as a substitute for the Wii's sensor bar in a pinch, but our pals at Joystiq decided to push the console's candlelight-capabilities to the limit and see if a menorah would help their Wii Sports game at all.

When we heard that candles (indeed, any light source) could be used as a replacement for the Wii sensor bar, we go to thinking about how this information could be used during the candle-filled holiday of Hanukkah. After some quick experimentation, we found that a Hanukkah menorah makes for a pretty...
