I watch a lot of video content on my Apple iPad Mini with Retina display so having a case that serves as a kickstand is important to me. The X-Doria Dash Folio is a great case that supports viewing in landscape.
There are rumors that HP might yet try again with phones and today we see tablets with voice capability launching in February in India.
The Chromebook 11 is a fantastic Chrome-OS device thanks to its great display, compact size, and ability to charge via microUSB. You can now purchase one with an integrated LTE radio for $100 more.
Kevin was on site in Vegas last week so we spent most of the show covering what was shown at CES 2014. Wearables, Samsung tablets, T-Mobile Uncarrier 4, and more were discussed.
The iPad is a great device for media and to fully enjoy it I prefer to prop it up with a case. STM Bags makes several cases for the iPad Mini with Retina display and I had the chance to test a couple.
Chromebooks reportedly did well in 2013 and we are sure to hear of many more new models in 2014. Toshiba kicked things off by announcing their first Chromebook.

People are doing more with their smartphones today, but I also see more people looking for dedicated devices to serve important roles in their life. One role is vehicle navigation and TomTom will soon have new offerings starting as low as $149.
In January the GameStick appeared as a Kickstarter project. It is available now for $80 and some games are fun, but more games are needed and the user interface could use more work.
