NEW YORK ? Time for a tablet?
People tend to hold onto tablets longer than smartphones, so take time to weigh your options. A major consideration is what phone you or your gift recipient already has.

BOSTON ? Boston Red Sox fans are crying foul over an innocuous tweet that the team acknowledges was ill-timed.

Hundreds of people pounced, accusing the Sox of being completely out of touch with a seminal national event.
