In this catch-up edition Kevin and I cover the news from the past couple of weeks along with some initial MWC thoughts. Stay tuned for our MWC wrap-up next weekend.
The Mobile Gadgeteer
Professionals are doing more today on the go than ever before. Matthew Miller and Joel Evans provide you with news, commentary and in-depth reviews of the latest in mobile gadgetry such as iPads, Android tablets, cutting edge smartphones, portable gaming,
Matthew Miller started using a Pilot 1000 in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since.

Samsung kicked things off at MWC with their new generation Gear 2 smartwatches. They both run Tizen and connect to a number of Galaxy smartphones.
Hands-on review: The new Pebble Steel -- attractive, functional and well-supported -- is clearly the best smartwatch now available. But competition's on the way.
We heard a lot about wearable technology at CES 2014 and it sounds like the battle may soon be raging on your wrist. I am a fan of the UP24 and look forward to seeing more this year.
The glory days of ebook readers is gone and another sign of their fall is the closing of the Sony Reader store in March 2014. Consumers will have their purchased content available on Kobo so hopefully they stick around for a while after Sony.
Given the time difference in Russia, US viewers will be seeing time-delayed coverage. You can follow the action a bit closer with your mobile device using these applications.
The Pebble Steel smartwatch is now shipping and the Pebble appstore is available for iOS owners. You can load up to eight apps at one time so I posted the following gallery of eight apps I like so far.
WaterField Designs make some of the finest mobile tech bags in the US and one of their latest models is the fantastic Staad BackPack. The Stout model is worth the $329 price and earns my highest praise.
Pebble is getting ready to launch their appstore and I have spent a few hours testing it out. Some apps can be used independently of a phone companion app and the Pebble experience is getting richer.
Kevin and I had lots of fun chatting about mobile tech and then talking a bit about growing up with gaming consoles and Macs since the mobile news has been a bit light lately.
