This month, we look back on the heavy-hitting smartphones, laptops, tablets, headphones, TVs and cameras that took the market by storm last year. We also give you a sneak peek into what’s in store for us this year, based on what went on in the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Here’s a real treat for band junkies this month: our interview with local indie band Ciudad, and the lowdown on some of the stompboxes you might need for your artillery. We also take you on a techie tour of PostManila Studios—the post-production team behind the 2012 groundbreaking film TikTik: The Aswang Chronicles. Plus, check out the hottest cars during the Car of the Year (COTY) Test Fest 2012-2013 in our Mobility section!
