    It’s not often that two really compelling tablets debut in the same week. Actually, if you ask me, I’d be hard pressed to think of two compelling tablets, but anyway. But just a week ago, we found ourselves with a rather difficult choice – The Nexus 9 or the iPad Air 2. So, we decided to ask our editors, “If you ...

    Is it fair that manufacturers restrict what we can do with the smartphones we purchase, drawing lines in the sand between permitted “consumer” activities and prohibited “developer” ones? We're hard-pressed to argue how that possibly makes sense, but like it or not, that's the situation for many handsets out ...
