Isn’t it ironic that brands like Apple and Samsung design their products to be as thin as ever, yet those same products are so fragile that our instinct is to buy a case to carry them in? Despite often being ostentatious and bulky, these cases are designed in all shapes and sizes to complement each of our individual tastes and use-case scenarios.

It’s no secret that I love hybrid devices. Laptops are handy and tablets are fun but having one device that can function as both is even better. Something about a gadget that can transform between different modes simply feels more futuristic to me. Lately I’ve been putting the Asus Transformer book T100TAM through its paces which is just such a device. It’s a sort of two-in-one laptop-tablet hybrid device that lets you use it as a laptop when you need to and as a standalone tablet the rest of the time.

I love seeing tablets grow in popularity. Over the past few years they went from a niche experimental device to an invaluable addition to your digital arsenal. You can get tablets suited to different needs, with widely varying features, power levels, and specifications. This year it seems like the big things with tablets is to be ‘Ultra’ in some way.

A lot of tablets pick out one factor to favor and go all in to live up to it as well as possible, carving out its own niche.
