A year after it was first held to bring cutting-edge products and services from leading global and local brands all under one roof, Yahoo TechnoStorm is back.

This year, Yahoo Philippines’ tech expo will be held from November 29 to December 1 at the Central Plaza of Market! Market! in Taguig City.

More than just a celebration of all things tech, this year's TechnoStorm will be a venue for Yahoo to drum up more support for survivors of super typhoon "Yolanda," said to be one of the strongest storms ever recorded.

We invite you to drop off your donations, cash or in-kind (even old, still-working mobile phones), at Market! Market! We'll make sure they won't fall into the wrong hands.

Here are some other reasons you should be there:
