iPad Mossberg Best of 2010

iPad Mossberg Best of 2010 - Wall Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg weighed in Monday with his picks for the best and worst tech products of 2010, with Apple products dominating his "best of" lists.

Mossberg's favorite product of the year was the Apple iPad, followed by 4G wireless networks and a third-place tie between the Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone 4. On the worst list were the Dell Streak, Google TV, and the TiVo Premiere.

Did PCMag analysts agree with Mossberg this year?

When audio analyst Tim Gideon first got his hands on the iPad earlier this year, he too was impressed. The tablet earned 4.5 out of 5 rating and secured our Editor's Choice. Despite the lack of Flash support or a camera, the sleek design and overall experience made the iPad a must-have device.

As for 4G networks, mobile analyst Sascha Segan reviewed Verizon's 4G LTE network earlier this month and found it to be "the Cadillac of wireless networks." Verizon is actually the fourth U.S. carrier to roll out a 4G network, though as Segan points out, that depends on what you consider 4G. Sprint has a WiMAX network, T-Mobile's network is HSPA+, and MetroPCS's is LTE, but a much slower variant than Verizon is using. Amidst some controversy over what is considered 4G, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) recently loosened its definition of 4G to include LTE, WiMax, and HSPA+.

As for smartphones, Segan also gave positive reviews for the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S. "Apple's iPhone 4 adds a gorgeous screen, terrific camera, and faster processor to add to Apple's awesome app experience, but voice calling still isn't this phone's priority," he wrote. Nonetheless, the device earned a 4.5 and PCMag's Editor's Choice.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
