Busy week! We were finally able to dig out from underneath a weekend's worth of CES only to be confronted with one major cell phone announcement! Here, a look at what ruled our world this week.
- We came, we saw, we conquered this year's CES. From experiencing the conference as the minority gender to learning some life lessons from the experience, the conference was a hit. Plus, we checked out some seriously awesome stuff and even noticed plenty of trends.
- CES was still in full swing when news of the Verizon iPhone broke late Friday. The rumors were finally true — Verizon officially announced the iPhone would run on its network starting in February. If you're thinking about picking one up, here's what you should know.
- In some good news for AT&T customers, Verizon's inclusion of mobile hotspots with the iPhone gives hope to the rest of us, as the functionality will be built into the next version of iOS. No word of how expensive it'll be, though.
- Speaking of iOS 4.3, it includes some more great features, too. In addition to mobile hotspots, a new feature called "Find My Friends" does exactly what you think it does. And the much-missed orientation lock on the iPad is back.
- In a story that seems straight out of a sci-fi novel, scientists appear to have created a computer that's smarter than we are. Or at least, better at playing Jeopardy than humans.
- After the Internet nearly melted on Thursday with news that the current signs of the Zodiac as we know them are wrong, I found some interesting alternatives with cool apps and sites to take your mind off of the fact that you may now be an Ophiuchus.
- Don't forget, the Golden Globes are tomorrow! Here's how to watch the coverage online instead of on your TV.
