When it comes to your communication, entertainment and dreaming needs, Microsoft and Walmart can hook you up.

We're zoning in on Black Friday, taking place next Friday, November 24th, 2017. With just days to go and discounts and deals on everything from scarves to drones and of course everything in between, there’s something to fit inside each trunk and every tree.

If you like the idea of gifting yourself or someone else with a new sweater but some new gaming equipment sounds kind of a whole heck of a lot better, (which is does to most of us), read on.
