The 6-foot-8 Nelson has sat out the last four games following two laser surgeries to repair a partially torn retina in his left eye.

The photo of the Fagen family (Dec. 28) caught my eye and required this note. I am sure that this "happy family" is not aware of the danger of swinging a child by the arms. It reminded me of the time my uncle did this with his 3 1/2-year-old daughter, resulting in his losing the sight of his eye by detaching the retina and my cousin dislocating her shoulder. Please advise Mr. Fagen and all parents of the dangers of this activity. It could be considered child abuse. TERRI S. LAVOOT, Anaheim

In a surprise move, Apple announced Tuesday that the iPad mini 2 with a retina display is now available for purchase.  However, the device is only available for order through Apple's online store, not its retail stores. Apple's website says, depending on the model, it will be shipped anywhere from one to 10 business days.

While the iPad Air went on sale in early November and drew the customary lines of fans at stores, the company had been vague about when the iPad mini would go on sale.  Until recently, the company had said "sometime in November," and speculation put the sale date closer to Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping season.  While it appears the iPad Air, the fifth generation of the larger tablet, is off to a strong start, Apple has not disclosed official sales figures.  But since the introduction of the iPad mini last year, the smaller device has become the more popular choice between the two sizes for consumers.

The new iPad Air officially went on sale Friday. And while lines at Apple stores appeared to be shorter than in previous years, it's unclear what that actually means in terms of first weekend sales.  That's because there are a number of factors that are different this year from a year ago when the new iPads went on sale.  Last year, Apple sold 3 million units of the iPad 4 and the iPad Mini, but only the Wi-Fi versions were available.  ...

The third-generation iPad is the best iPad ever released, and it's also the best overall tablet currently on the market. But is that really saying much? Before the new iPad, the iPad 2 was our top choice among tablets, and since Apple's iPad first arrived in 2010, the product line has defined what a modern tablet should be -- a full multi-touch display up front, speedy performance, tablet-specific apps and video, music and games just a tap (and a credit card purchase) away. The new iPad simply continues the evolution of Apple's tablet with slightly better specs all around, but the user experience of the new device is largely the same as with the iPads that have come before it. Meanwhile, Android tablets -- such as the Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, Motorola's Xyboards and Xooms, Samsung's Galaxy Tabs and options from Acer and Asus -- are continuing to improve, but at this point rivals still can't entirely match the iPad in terms of its hardware refinement, the ease of use and power of the iOS operating system or the diverse selection of apps and entertainment available in the App Store and iTunes.
