FrontPoint Picks: Gadget Guide for World Cup 2014


I can already hear it, can you? Well get ready, because you’re going to be hearing it everywhere for the next month as people all over the globe get excited for the World Cup in Brazil, June 12-13. Even I can’t escape the hype and I’m normally uninterested in soccer (fútbol, sorry).

It’s because the World Cup is more than just a bunch of football games. The World Cup is a worldwide gathering for incredible athletes. It’s a time for exuberant displays of national pride. It’s an experience – borderline religious for many.

And an event of this magnitude deserves a viewing experience that can equal it, which is why in this week’s edition of FrontPoint Picks, we’re leading off with the best TVs for watching the World Cup. Heck, you’ll practically be in Brazil.

You’ve got your TV, but realistically, you won’t be able to watch every moment of the World Cup (please remember to eat and sleep). That’s why you need an app for your phone, so you can keep track of your team whether you’re at work, eating or brushing your teeth. Use the apps found in this list and beware of the fake ones.
