Watching the Super Bowl used to mean sitting in front of a TV, captive to whatever the network decided to show. Not anymore, thanks to a slew of apps that not only can turn a smartphone into a substitute for the TV but also provide an interactive experience -- all from the comfort of your living room couch. Watching on a phone or tablet Although the ideal way to watch the Super Bowl is on big-screen TV, you can also easily watch it on a smartphone or tablet computer. That's a good option to have in case you're running late to a Super Bowl party or someone decides to switch the channel to the Puppy Bowl.

Getting delayed at an airport may be less of a headache in the future if you are traveling with a smartphone, laptop or tablet computer.

Internet users will be able to access faster Wi-Fi, and that means more portable devices will be able to stream high-definition movies and television. The effort was announced by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

SAN LUIS OBISPO - Jake Devincenzi was thrilled to get his hands on Google's new Nexus 4 smartphone. He admired its sleek black case and large touch screen - and he couldn't wait to tear it apart. In a small room cluttered with discarded computer parts, Devincenzi picked up a blue plastic stylus and eased the tool into a seam on the side of the phone as three co-workers watched. Minutes later, a pop. The tear-down had begun. "We're in," he said, and grinned. Each time Devincenzi plucked a part from the Nexus 4, he took a high-resolution photo and posted it online.

If you're searching for ways to keep your cellphone, GPS device and sometimes tablet computer handy on car trips without having to drill holes, sacrifice cup holders or rely on suction cups, Satechi's new ST-TP01 Car Holder Mount gets a different grip. The adjustable cradle grabs devices from 5 inches to 10 inches long -- which means most smartphones, readers, tablets and GPS units, which can be rotated to horizontal or vertical mode. The cradle swivels out from a weighted suction/pressure gripper that locks onto the top of the dashboard, rather than the window, so the electronic device hogs neither the view nor the cup holder.
