    As we usher in another new month in the incessant march towards Christmas 2014 and another new year, there’s a good chance you’ve got better things to be doing at weekends rather than sitting around keeping up-to-date on the latest and greatest in tech news.

    It’s a busy month, too.

    Did you know that November is Peanut Butter Lovers Month in the US? Yep, the whole month. Or that San Francisco Bay was first discovered – by land and not sea – on November 2? Or that the name comes from the Latin for nine, as it was originally the ninth month of the Roman calendar?

    November 2 also happens to be the same date on which two US president were born; Warren Harding in 1865 and James Polk in 1795. And in Dutch, it’s sometimes called slachtmaand, which means slaughter month. See, November has always had a lot going on; let us take care of keeping on top of the tech news for you.

    All you need to do is sit back, make a coffee and spend 10 minutes catching up on all that you’ve missed from The Next Web and beyond in the last two days. The trivia is free, you can keep that.
