Last Gadget Standing news coverage


Mobile Apps Showdown wasn’t the only event grabbing headlines at CES: Our sister event and fellow competition, the Last Gadget Standing, also garnered some ink. Like Mobile Apps Showdown, Last Gadget is an online and live competition, but unlike Mobile Apps, it pits gadgets against each other instead of battling apps. See what the press had to say about the Last Gadget Standing competition in this news roundup.
