    The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show is going to be all about the tablets - an inevitable reality given the huge success enjoyed by Apple last year as the lone superpower in the contemporary tablet marketplace. And while Apple's touchscreen tablet may remain the top dog among tablets in 2011, it's certainly no longer going to be lonely within its category.

    With few exceptions, most social networking apps that piggyback on Twitter's framework fail to deliver anything worth downloading, let alone uttering a word about to another social networking fanatic. Fortunately, such is not the case with UberSocial, a sweet new social networking app that comes to us from Tunji Afonja, a jailbreak developer whose work is hosted on ModMyi.
