The Robots Are Coming! I arrived at the yearly Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas expecting to see a world of new gadgets and futuristic technology. What else would you expect when over 150,000 tech geeks take over a city for a week? (Besides collapsed Internet access and long lines to the men’s bathroom, of course.) Folks, the future looks bright, and by “bright,” I mean full of robots. Everywhere I turned, I saw glimpses of our eventual overlords—miniature robots that can follow drawn lines (Ozobot, ozobot.com), freakishly friendly iPhone-powered robots that can teach kids how to program (ROMO, romotive.com), and finally, an iPad-powered robot for telecommuters that lets you videoconference and control its movements from afar (Double, doublerobotics.com). Who wouldn’t want a robot rolling around the office like a Segway? We’ve…

How Do You Maintain Work/Life Balance? Donna, Associate Editor: I am a big believer in enabling Airplane Mode. It helps me disconnect and relax for an hour or two after work and still have access to my phone’s basic functions (Clock, Notes, etc.). Raph, CTO: I’ve found an app called Clever Routines ($0.99) that I use to create daily reminders to meditate, go for a run, or take a walk. It’s nice to get regular reminders to do some of the non-tech things that improve my quality of life. Alex, Editor in Chief: Since I work from my laptop, work is always just a few clicks away. To balance my time, I create set work hours and stick to them. This helps me stay away from that dreaded space where you’re not really…

the post-pc revolution

When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad in 2010, he famously claimed we were entering the “Post-PC era.” In an interview with tech journalist Walt Mossberg following the announcement, Jobs explained that he thought mobile devices would become our primary computing tools, with PCs only being used under rare circumstances. He went on to say that he didn’t know exactly when the transition was coming or how long it would take, but that smartphones and tablets would inevitably dominate PCs. More than three years after that interview, we are on the verge of realizing his prediction. In 2012, smartphones outsold PCs for the first time. Meanwhile, tablets continue to break sales records. I think that in the next few years, smartphones will not only outsell computers, but they will begin to replace…
