It’s our dirty little secret. Most of us here at MAKE spend more of our time putting out the magazine and website than we do actually making the things we write about.  (That’s what the crew in MAKE’s lab gets to do.) But the rest of us still have dreams of devoting more time tinkering in our garages and making stuff. The holidays are the time to dream such dreams. What follows is a list of choice picks from a variety of MAKE staffers. Whether we’d actually have time to make use of any of these goodies is another matter. But then again it’s better to give than to receive.

Take Me to the Guide!

    So, is everything on MAKE just a slideshow now? I’m _this_ close to dumping the rss feed completely…

      Everything is not a slideshow. The only slideshows we are publishing are the gift guides. Everything else is a straight-up blog post. We are publishing the gift guides as slideshows because we think the multiple photos are best suited to that format. But if you want to skip the slideshow simply click “view all.” Thanks for reading.

        I love your feeds, except the slideshows aren’t smart phone friendly.. can’t hit a “view all” button if its off the page.. hope this helps. Before you comment, I don’t own a working computer.
