This week had been pretty busy. Thanksgiving, black friday, discounts, sale, deals… Sellers had been busy offering the holiday discounts and buyers had been busy checking out the deals. In the midst of season’s cheers, we at creatika are coming up with the second edition of “Weekly Roundup”.
The week started with Calypso making the news and was soon everyone was in the holidaying and celebrations mood. So there is a lot of interesting stuff from round the web in this roundup. Let’s start with the events that marked up as the “news”.
