Did you miss out on one (or five) of Tech Cocktail’s posts from this week? It’s okay. We want to let you know that we forgive you; we totally get it. You’re a busy person, with a lot of things on your mind and equally as many things to do. You had people to meet, places to be, and tacos to eat. No worries, though, because we’ve curated this week’s top 10(ish) posts as determined by the Tech Cocktail editorial team.

We hope you all enjoyed the much-needed time with family this holiday season! The winter holiday season is always the best part of the year – reuniting with family, seeing old friends, and stuffing our faces with home-cooked meals for dayz. Winter is upon us, so consider downloading some of these winter weather survival apps in case snow falls wherever you live. This week, Tech Cocktail Top Stories include some great pieces from some of our contributors. Hillary Smith gave us some insight on some of the great things going on in 3D printing; Santosh Satya gives us some helpful information on taxes; Allan Watson suggests some great apps that startups can use on the iPhone 6 to help manage their companies; and Kali Hawlk gives us a great guide on how to improve your social media strategy in 2015.
