This week on gdgt iPad Air, Sculpt Comfort Mouse, and Everpix alternatives

Apple iPad Air

Apple's latest full-sized tablet went on sale last Friday, earning its share of critical acclaim. At just one pound, it might feel insubstantial compared to previous iPad models, but its thinner profile doesn't mean it skimps on performance. Thanks to Apple's new A7 chip (the same one inside the iPhone 5s), the Air flies in both gaming and day-to-day tasks. Battery life doesn't take a hit either -- we routinely got more than a full day of use. Overall, it's more of an evolutionary update, but it's still the best iPad yet, and the best 10-inch tablet you can buy right now.

Kobo Aura

Kobo's latest backlit e-reader is a good choice for people new to the e-book scene. Though the Aura isn't massively different from other Kobo models or even rival readers, it has a decent display and is easy to use. Unfortunately, it isn't the fastest e-reader on the block, meaning that page turns and button presses don't always register as they should. While Kobo's library may not be as large as Amazon or Barnes and Noble, it does offer support for more e-book formats than the competition (including EPUB), which should slightly offset the relatively small (but still sizable) book selection.
