Our Tuesday recap is something of an unofficial Consumer Electronics Show 2014 edition, given that all five of today's stories hail from the trade show in Las Vegas that's consuming most of the tech news this week. Couldn't make the show this year? No worries, we'll give you the rundown on the hottest stories, right now!
Forgot about the rumors and speculation: Tuesday, Oct. 22 has arrived, and we'll all soon know what Apple has in store for us with a fall media event in San Francisco that will unveil what the company has to offer through the end of the year and into early 2014.
