iPads won't be stuffing stockings this year — Tablets have had a dreadful 2014, and the misery is expected to continue into the holiday season. In the months since back-to-school shopping, tablet sales have fallen 16%, according to market research firm NPD. Tablets are among the worst performers in the entire consumer electronics industry this year.

Use the PriceJump app to get the lowest prices on your holiday shopping — But what if there's a better deal at another store close by or even online? A new app from called PriceJump does just that. It helps shoppers cover all their bases by scanning local stores and 5,000 online retailers in real time to get the best price.

Moto X vs. Droid Turbo: Which Droid should you buy? — The Droid Turbo isn't going to win any beauty contests. It kind of looks like a fat, homely cousin of Moto X. Its rubber casing and nylon backing provide a nice grip, but they're not exactly the best building materials. And its hefty weight, jagged edges, long chin and physical menu buttons feel outdated by a couple years.

See Paul McCartney -- in virtual reality! — If so, you're in luck! All you need is a virtual reality headset. Jaunt, a Google-backed virtual reality startup, has released a new app that lets McCartney fanatics see a 3-D performance of "Live and Let Die" on their Android phones. The view of the concert changes as you move your head.

App takes guessing out of wine buying — Making a selection at a wine store is a daunting task that usually comes down to just two decisions: red or white and what price you're willing to pay. Then you just choose the wine with the prettiest label. A new app called Next Glass aims to make buying wine much easier -- and a whole lot more scientific.

Samsung to stop making so many damn phones — Robert Yi, Samsung's head of investor relations, recently told analysts that the company would trim the number of phones it makes by as much as 30%. Samsung has released 52 unique smartphones in 2014 alone. By contrast, HTC brought 23 new phones to market, Nokia unveiled 20, Motorola released 10 handsets and Apple unveiled two.

Apple's Mac update fails to fix Wi-Fi problems — Macintosh owners are reporting that their computers are dropping Wi-Fi connections, failing to join networks or their Internet connections are painfully slow. Apple pushed out an update to Mac OS X Yosemite Monday that said it would "improve Wi-Fi reliability." But Mac users say the update to Mac OS 10.10.1 didn't help.

Should you buy the $99 PC from Walmart? — The Nextbook 8, a PC tablet that runs the latest version of Microsoft Windows, will be available for just $99 on Black Friday at Wal-Mart . It is currently selling for $149. There are some tradeoffs to buying a $99 Windows PC tablet -- it has no built in mouse or keyboard, the processor isn't great, and it only has 16 GB of memory.

Netflix for iPhone 6 Plus now comes in higher high-def — Netflix updated its iPhone app, allowing owners of the giant iPhone to watch videos in 1080p, up from 720p. Both are high-definition, but 1080p offers even higher-resolution. For most people, the difference will be imperceptible on such a small screen (even if Apple's new iPhone is huge for a smartphone).

Steve Wozniak: The iPhone 6 is three years too late — "Apple could have had a much bigger share of the smartphone market if it had a larger-screen iPhone for the past three years," Wozniak told CNNMoney from Capital One's new Innovation Center in Plano, Texas. "It could have competed better with Samsung."

RT @LaMonicaBuzz: @BostonBroker33 @SBNation @Giants Grumble. Congrats on your Pats. You could probably rush for 150/2TDs for them. Who needs Tardy Jonas Gray?

Seriously, @sears, stop emailing me! I opted out weeks ago. I like the Kenmore fridge I just bought. I'm not about to buy another, though.
