As 2014 winds to a close, gadget manufacturers are well prepared for what’s supposed to be another competitive year. But as far as tech goes, 2014 has been a great year, with Samsung releasing their galaxy S5 and note 4, Apple doing their thing with their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and Microsoft surprising us with their Surface Pro 3. Not to mention, the first wave of curved TVs, smart watches, over the air DVRs, Amazon Fire TVs, and short throw projectors among others.
