TechCrunch’s Favorite Things Of 2015
Here at TechCrunch, we see a lot of stuff — gadgets, gizmos, apps, doo-dads, and electro-whatnots. Name a gadget, and someone on staff has probably obsessed over it, torn it apart, or worn it out over the past year.
Some of this stuff is great. A lot of it… not so much.
We take the knowledge that comes with all that tinkering and cram it into our gift guides, where we’ve got recommendations on really, really good gifts for just about everyone in your life.
But people always ask us: what do we like? What do we throw our money at?
This is the stuff that we, the writers/editors/video producers/etc. of TechCrunch, really, really liked in 2015. The stuff that at the end of the year, we look back at and say “Yeah — I’m really glad I owned that.” Some of it came out in 2015. Some of it came out in years prior and still has our hearts. Enjoy!
