So, what new tech did you get for the holidays?

Did Santa leave you some great new Apple gifts under the tree? Were there 8 days of tech for you earlier this year? Did you simply get caught up in - or reap the benefits of - the holiday sales? Yes, there are far more important things in the world, and there are all sorts of arguments against our increasingly materialistic culture, but we're a technology blog and an Apple-centric one at that, so we have but one focus, and one question for you today...

What gear to you give, and what gear to you receive these holidays?

How to use your iPhone or iPad to help you stay fit

February is Fitness Month at iMore and Mobile Nations, and that means our whole community is involved -- readers, listeners, viewers, and most of all, forum members. I wrote my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu routine up a couple of days ago, but all week you've been sharing how you use your iPhone and iPad to stay in shape, and the apps and accessories you use along with it. Sure, we sweetened the deal by putting a $100 iTunes gift card up for grabs -- and we'll do it again next week -- but you guys brought serious game.

So what did you tell us?

Did you jailbreak iOS 6 with evasi0n? [Poll]

Did you Jailbreak iOS 6 with Evasi0n?

[evasi0n], the iOS 6 and iPhone 5 jailbreak, has been live for a couple of days now, so we want to know: did you pull the trigger? And if so, why?

For some, jailbreak makes the mainstream iOS decidedly more pro-friendly, adding numerous tweaks, themes, and other features that not only round out, but complete the experience. For others, it makes a stable system just as decidedly unstable.

If you did jailbreak, tell us the features you couldn't live without, and what you've done to make your iPhone or iPad perfect for your needs. If you didn't jailbreak, tell us what concerns you have, or why the jailbreak features aren't, or are no longer, compelling for you.

Would you want an iPad 5 that looks and feels just like an iPad mini?

If Apple can produce an iPad 5 with Retina display, 10-hours of battery life, and make it anywhere close to as light and thin for its 9.7-inch size as the iPad mini is at 7.9, would you want them to? Would an iPad 5 that looks and feels like an iPad mini be your next iPad?

What do you want to see at CES 2013?

CES is one of the biggest consumer electronic shows on the planet, and the sheer amount of technology crammed into the Las Vegas Convention Center and environs for the week is beyond stupefying. Apple's not here, of course, but iOS accessories and even some apps abound. Everything is becoming connected and mobile, and a lot of it is working with our iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

But like any period of change, there's a lot of turbulence. Manufacturers aren't sure what we want yet, so they're throwing a dizzying array of products at us just to see what sticks. A lot of it is noise at this point, but some of it is also remarkable. We're going to try and find as much of a the remarkable stuff as we can this week, but here's my question to you--

What do you want to see at CES 2013? 4K televisions? Better car integration? Connected health and fitness products? Smart watches? Convergence devices?

There's nothing like that moment when something totally new, and totally transformative hits the stage, your jaw drops, and you instantly know that you never want to be without it.

There are a lot of contenders for the "next big thing" -- what do you want it to be?

Poll: What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

That's it. We're done. Apple vs. Samsung has been exhausting and now that the jury has had it's say, awarding Apple some $1.05 billion in damages, it's time for you to have yours. We're leaving the comments wide open, handing you the mic, and slowly backing away from the internet for the night.

Did the jury reach the right decision? Did they get it totally wrong? Does copying kill innovation? Does litigation and a patent system gone haywire? Should Samsung have won on some counts as well? Should Apple have lost on their counts too? Or could you really care less at this point?

Vote in the poll up top and let loose in the comments below. Ducks and runs

What's the worst gadget you've ever bought?

What's the worst device, accessory, or miscellaneous piece of technology you've ever had the misfortune to use? Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently said the Android-powered HTC Thunderbolt phone was one of the worst gadgets he'd ever bought. Given that Woz probably buys all the gadgets, that's quite a condemnation. How about you?

What if Google had never made Android: how would iOS 6 be different today, and who would be Apple's biggest competitor?

The title really does say it all -- if Google had never gone ahead with Android and, instead, if they'd maintained their close relationship with Apple, what would iOS 6 be like today? Would Google Maps still be there, and would it be as good as Google Maps on Android is? Would YouTube still be there, and be as good as YouTube on Android? What other services might have been integrated, GTalk instead of iMessage? Google sync instead of iCloud? Would the iPhone 5 ship with NFC-powered Google Wallet? Would the iPad mini come with 20 GB of free space on Google Drive? How far and how deeply could the Apple and Google love affair have gone?

Poll: What do you think of the supposed iPad mini design?

What do you think of the supposed iPad mini design?

So we thanks to a trio of reports from across the Apple-net tonight, we might just have some idea of what the iPad mini will look like. Nothing is confirmed until Apple shows it off on stage, of course, but if we're going to speculate we might as well do it right and ask you, the iMore nation, just what you think about this supposed iPad mini design?

If it's in between a 9.7 inch iPad and an iPod touch, does it make sense it's proportionately narrower than the current iPad but wider than the touch? And that the bezel isn't as wide as the current iPad, but still wider than the iPod touch? How about it being as thin as the iPod touch? Is there such a thing as too thin?

You know the drill -- vote in the poll up top and then give me your insight in the comments below. iMore nation, is this the iPad mini you're looking for?
