Get a tablet for the kid

Don’t slap your kids’ wrist when they try to grab your tablet. Slap the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids into their hands, and leave them alone with educational apps pre-loaded inside the kid-friendly tablet. You're allowed to be a complete control freak and dictate which apps your kids can access on the $388 Android tablet. And if the missus refuses to return your tablet, simply swipe your kids' tablet from their hands, switch to standard mode and access its full features.

Flip that Windows 8 and RT tablet

Social network and news aggregator app Flipboard is now available on Microsoft’s operating system. The app, which is free to download, builds a magazine-format layout based on your social network news feed or websites. The Windows version lets you pin magazines and sections as live tiles on the Start screen and snap Flipboard side-by-side with another app to put your multitasking skills to the test.
