Ara’s favorite devices of 2014

New year, same sweet tech

2014 was a big year for me, device-wise. I went through a few phones — three Moto Xs, to be exact — I lost a tablet, I gained a few Chromebooks, and in the course of my writing here, I got to play with devices I’d otherwise never see. It’s been somewhat eye-opening, but more than anything, it’s helped reassure me of what I want in my devices. And now I’ll share my favorites with you. This list is a tad different — I haven’t played with any of the current tablets enough to confess a favorite, but my Chromebook had replaced my tablet and my old laptop to boot — but it’s a good list and it’s my list.

Onto the show!
