I don’t know about you, but when I think of autumn the following thoughts comes to mind: crunchy leaves, peeling branches and cozy wardrobe. The fall is, by far, my favorite season. It evokes a sense of serenity and warmth (more so than the scorching hot SoCal Summer) that truly make me happy. There is also something to be said about the autumnal colors (oranges, reds, yellows, etc) that bring a smile to my face. Needless to say, I’m in love with the season.
With that said, what kind of autumn-lover would I be if I didn’t find some tech to match the season. So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite autumn-inspired gadgets and apps to take you into my favorite time of year.
