What To Do With Old Tech Toys

So, you got some new high-tech toy for Christmas or Hanukkah, and don't know what to do with your old one. Today on KTRS, I asked Blade Tech's Scott Schaffer to explain your options -- from selling to trading to donating to recycling -- and how to get all of your personal information off those devices first. We also talked about what to expect in tech in 2013, from Apple TV to Microsoft's continued emphasis on Windows 8 to new advances in medical technology to providers capping the speed and bandwidth of your internet connection as more users stream audio and video.
