Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 is vulnerable due to the Heartbleed security flaw.  
According to an announcement by Google, smartphones and tablets running a specific version of Android were affected by the widespread web security bug, which could potentially spill your sensitive login information (like passwords). The company assured Android owners in a blog post April 9 that most versions are not affected by the flaw.

If you know someone who wants an iPad but doesn't want to plop down $499, this is a bit of good news.  While the iPad 4 isn't as powerful as the iPad Mini 2, it's a solid choice for those who really want that 9.7-inch display.

I'm updating some of my 'best of' lists, and after starting with the best role-playing games, I can say this: 2013 was a good year for iPad gaming.  A lot of great games arrived last year.

Nice puff piece on the Walking Dead. But it's a puff piece.   The first two seasons were some of the best TV in TV history.  Since the second have of season three.. meh.  

The last two episodes have reminded me of Heroes.  Nothing much happens and you leave feeling empty.  Only that momentum from the first two seasons keeps me watching, and that is fastly fading.   

It's sad, but at the very least, I have Game of Thrones to keep me going!

External hard drives can expand the storage capability of your iPad, but not just any external drive will work with the iPad. External drives capable of creating their own Wi-Fi connection are the best overall solution.

Sometimes I wonder just how awesome the Xbox One would be if it were designed by Apple instead of Microsoft.  Who doesn't send the TV signal through when the device is powered down?  Who puts fast forward controls on triggers that will be activated if the controller is dropped?  Decisions like that make me wonder if anyone on the Xbox team actually uses an Xbox One.  Maybe they all have PS4s.

This is funny.  I was checking Time Warner Cable's internet prices and the Ultimate and Extreme are tagged with "Free Home WiFi Included" but if you hover over it you get details that state "Internet Modem Fee will apply".... so it is free if you pay for it.  That's funny.

It's easy to forget the Safari browser when childproofing the iPad, but it is a necessary if you truly want to lock down the device.
