Wired Wednesday December 19: Last-Minute Tech Gift Ideas
Two of our tech experts offer some easy, user-friendly and affordable options
If you’re struggling yet to find just the right gift for the tech lover in your life, two of our tech experts, Will Bushee and Chris Prendergast, offer up some easy finds.
Some additional advice from Bushee:

While visiting grandparents, help secure their passwords with LastPass and add 2-factor authentication
