The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is set to take place this January 7 – 10. Each year, the gadget conference fills with hundreds of iPhone and iPad related products for us to look forward to in the following year. One of our favorite outdoor accessories, the iGrill, is getting an upgrade this year and iDevices will be on hand to demonstrate it for lucky attendees. Additionally, iDevices will be showing off a new propane level checker called iLP.
Yesterday, CBS announced that, for the first time, the broadcast company will live-stream coverage of the American Football Conference portion of the National Football League playoffs. The entire conference will be available to stream on laptops, desktops, and tablets via CBSSports.com.
If there were any game of 2013 that could be considered one of the top titles of the year it would be Candy Crush Saga. The deliciously simple match-three game won the hearts of iOS users all year long. It has steadily remained on the Top Grossing Games list in the App Store since it launched. This week, the game’s developer, King, has launched a new match-three title that is a little healthier, but just as fun.
iPads have been used by politicians in a wide range of settings, but a story out of Nassau county shows that the iPad may have finally replaced the Good Book itself. In a ceremony on January 2nd, County Executive Edward Mangano was sworn in using a downloaded Bible on an iPad because a physical copy couldn’t be found. I can’t help wonder if this speaks to the ingenuity of Nassau county or its godlessness because they couldn’t find a single real Bible.

Last week, we presented our readers with a list of retro and classic games we thought were the best in 2013. It’s time to get a new list started for a new year. Read More »

Just before the New Year, NPD Group released a report showing that Apple increased its share of the tablet marked during the Holiday season by 2.6 percent. While those numbers could mean millions of new iPad owners, it is still much lower than Android’s success this holiday season. NPD Group reported an increase of 160 percent of Android tablet sales during Christmas.
About a year ago, rumors began to surface that Apple was working on wearable computing technology in the form of a watch. No one has been able to nail down precisely what the so-called “iWatch” will be capable of, but some analysts claim it will be a companion device to let you access certain things on your iPhone or iPad without having to be near it.
The company applied for a patent for a slap wrist style computer device earlier this year. In July, Bloomberg confirmed that Apple submitted a request in Japan for the iWatch name.
Both SEGA and Nintendo have their iconic branded characters. Nintendo has made a point to actively stay away from mobile gaming, while Sega continues to embrace the technology and has even gone so far as to port some of the more popular titles to iOS. One hugely popular racing game, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, successfully made it to iOS a few years ago. Today, SEGA has graced us with the more updated sequel, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
