This Week in the Life of Droid: 1/3/2014

Next week is CES, folks. While Kellen and I are packing our bags and charging all of our batteries, we hope you will join us here on DL, as we bring you all of the great tech that is sure to be announced. While we know nothing too major will probably happen, as this isn’t Google I/O or a Samsung Unpacked event, the DL team usually finds themselves meeting great people and bringing back a few fantastic stories. This will be our fourth year attending, so we are pretty hardened veterans by now. Either way, we can’t wait, and we hope you can’t either.

This week had a holiday plopped right in the middle, so we weren’t able to get a DL Show up, but you should be on the lookout for one next week hopefully, while we are in Vegas. In news this week, T-Mobile and AT&T are still at each other’s throats, Google announced the shutdown of Bump, Snapchat got hacked, and Motorola dropped the price of an off-contract Moto X to just $399. Big things going down!

Here are the highlights if you missed them.

Have a great weekend, folks! We will see you in Vegas!

    So tempted to buy the Moto X, even just to try it for a few weeks instead of my Nexus 5. I can deal with the specs not being anything special, especially since it seems to be engineered so carefully, but I really don’t want to go any smaller with the screen size. In fact, if Motorola comes out with something that is at least as big as the N5 (for AT&T) but that can use AD, TC, and other Moto X features–the Xplay, perhaps–I’ll switch over pretty quickly. Double that if the batter life is quite good, to the point where it resembles the Droid devices that I go 48 hours.

    This is what I predict at CES. Cheap 4K TVs, cheap tablets, “smart” household appliances, smart cameras, smart watches, and cars running the latest tegra chips.
