As we brace for yet another winter storm here in the northeast (two actually but who’s counting) we can at least take some measure of comfort in knowing that January is finally over. [Now we just have to get through February and the first part of March and maybe, just maybe by then the snow will be gone.] January was a busy month for us. It began with CES 2011 and just kept right on going. At last count we had over 100 CES-related posts and dozens and dozens of other Gear Diary content. January saw the introduction of “GD Quickies”, quick editorial entries into our shared “Gear Diary”. Among the editors the month we saw Judie jump into using the Tab as her “daily driver”, saw Carly prepping for her Android-ified nook Color, Michael playing more games than ever, and Dan… yet again, trying an Android device only to return to iOS monogamy. And January saw every member of the Gear Diary team adding some amazing, wide-ranging content to the site.
Over the weekend we looked back over the first month of 2011 posts and pulled out a few that we personally found most interesting. In no particular order… Here they are…
