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.

Matthew Miller started using a Pilot 1000 in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since.
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.
Pebble was my favorite smartwatch of 2013 and is starting off 2014 with a bang. Their Appstore launches this month, a new premium Pebble Steel can be ordered now, and new partners are helping them take the smartwatch further than before.
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.
The Apple iPad Mini with Retina display is an extremely portable and powerful tablet. You can use the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard cover to increase productivity on the go.
Either Kevin and I are getting old and cranky or we are just tired of too much going on. We are both using the same smartphones now in an attempt to simplify our lives.
HP recalled the Chromebook 11 due to a faulty charger issue and it has been unavailable for some time. I found it on Amazon a couple days ago and placed my order.
There are plenty of options in the tablet market, but for me the new iPad Mini with Retina display is the one I have been looking for and I could not be happier.
