If you're one of our US readers then you'll probably already know that today is Independence Day. We'd like to wish all of our readers a happy 4th July, and we hope that you'll be able to spend some time with family and loved ones and maybe even find a spare moment to throw some food onto the grill.

As we wrap up the last full work week of January, we saw a big chunk of mobile news today. For example, watch your back if you have an Android device because the Android Market is having its largest malware infection ever. If the iPhone is more your style, but you're stuck on T-Mobile, you might be pleased to know that the magenta-colored carrier plans to start boosting unlocked iPhone support at the end of the month.
We've had one whole heck of a lot of fun this past week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, but all good things must come to a close, and so too must we exit Las Vegas Nevada. What we've seen has been wrapped up a bit by Chris Davies in a set of posts listed later in this post, but we've got plenty of content left to go - stacks of hands-on video and photos of oddities, hidden treasures, and items that require just a bit more in-depth processing than your average feature from across the show floor for you to peek at throughout the weekend. That said, we'd like to thank everyone at CES for all your hard work and for making such an event of massive size take place for the pleasure of us and our readers.
It's time to start a whole new Roman Calendar year, here in the last of them all for this planet according to the crazies, and we're about to jump head-first into the pool of madness by the name of CES 2012! What you're going to get below is just one piece of the puzzle which amounts to the calm before the storm - but it's no calm. There's been so many leaks and previews for the show coming up this next week that it'll be a surprise if anything is left to show at the show! Have a peek!
It's less than a week before we're diving face-first into the most gigantic gadget show of the whole year the Consumer Electronics Show 2012: and it's time to take a look at everything that's been teased and leaked thus far. There's official previews, invites, unofficial photos and bits let loose by people whose goal in life it is to bring you in on the good stuff before its masters reveal in ernest, and a real schedule so you can see where we'll be the whole time. Our team will be spread out like the fingers of a hand, and when we bring them together we will CRUSH the news each day for you!
When its time for a celebrity appearance on any manner of show or ad spot that can be construed as cool, you can expect that Snoop Dogg wont be far behind. Last time we spoke about Snoop Dogg specifically, it was about a set of viral videos made for MetroPCS in which he re-named himself Snoop DoGGGG, a contestant on the G-Connection with Warren G. Here in the gadget and technology reporting world, there's something to be said about having your favorite hero reporter or, more likely, your favorite hero blog report the news you want to hear.
The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad. Then the new year brought fourth an event of giant proportions. Behold the 2011 year in the most omnipotent tablet on the market.
