Best 5 smartwatches from CES

One of the bigger stories at CES this year was smartwatches. There were so many I had a hard time keeping track of them all, and figuring out which, if any, were worth my attention. Luckily, Adam Zeis did all the heavy lifting on that. He's compiled a list of the best 5 smartwatches at CES. From Smartwatch Fans:

BlackBerry's new CEO believes their future is tied... to iPhone

BlackBerry's new CEO has begun articulating his vision for the future once-dominant handset maker, and it's a future that depends on iPhone owners as well. That's because the previously proprietary BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) service is now cross-platform, and enterprise mobile device management now requires support for iOS as well. From Marcus Adolfsson's interview on CrackBerry.com:

Grand theft Apple: Why iPhones are still a big target in NYC

New York City's war on crime has been largely effective over the last decade, with one major exception: iPhone theft. While most major crimes were down, grand larcenies involving phones, and Apple's phone in particular, have remained nearly unchanged. Apple previously introduced Find my iPhone to help track stolen devices, and last year added Activation Lock, though it remains to be seen how big a discouragement that will prove. So far, so not so good, according to Alison Fox of the Wall Street Journal:

How Windows 8 compromised Microsoft, perhaps terminally

For a long time people with iPhones and iPads predominantly used Windows. In previous years the vast majority of people who read iMore read it using Windows. That's been changing. Right now, the number of people who read us on iOS is exploding, and Windows, shrinking. Right now, the number of people using iPads for things they used to use Windows for is increasing. Part of the reason for that is certainly the success Apple has had with their devices over the last few years. The other part is Windows 8. While some might imagine I'm biased, here's Paul Thurrott of Supersite for Windows:

Weekly Photo Contest: Technology and electronics!

The Mobile Nations crew is out covering CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week so we thought there's no better time to run a photo contest focusing on the topic of the week, technology and electronics! Anything is fair game that plugs in to a wall. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, things like circuit boards make great macro shots too! Don't forget, a random photo of your television set won't win the prize. The winner this week will be the person that can show us how technology impacts our every day lives.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 14th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! And they are...

INMOTION SCV at #CESlive: Don't call it a Segway!

We're at #CESlive and while we can't call the INMOTION SCV a Segway, we can call it awesome. It may not be the most fun you can have in Vegas without getting arrested, but you can certainly do more than your fair share of free-wheeling mayhem.

It may not have anything to do with Apple, but getting Georgia to ride it, and ride people over with it — she took out a news camera that was entranced with capturing her demo! — was simply too terrific an opportunity to pass up.

Just... watch.

Microsoft super-happy Windows Phone is outselling non-existent cheap iPhone!

Apple has 0% share of the under $400 phone market, yet Microsoft is ecstatic they're managing to out-sell Apple in exactly that market. Phones still feel new, even though the market is huge. In the car market, Chery outselling BMW in China wouldn't get the same kind of pickup, because it's better understood and, frankly, enjoys more mature coverage.

Michael Bay storms out on Samsung at CES 2014!

No, Michael Bay wasn't upset about Samsung announcing a mindboggling array of overlapping tablets, or about how evident the problems with Transformers 3 were on the massive 150-inch curved television set. The famed director was incensed that his teleprompter failed, and not prepared to ad-lip in the least. Maybe if they'd used an iPad to feed him his lines, it would have worked?

It's the strangest, funniest moment at CES so far, and the show hasn't even started yet!
