  • All The Little (But Awesome) Things You Definitely Missed At CES

    All The Little (But Awesome) Things You Definitely Missed At CES

    It’s true. CES is out of control. I have no reference point since this was my first visit, but from the first second you disembark the monorail and look down over the sprawling campus of the LVCC, you know you won’t see everything. The inkling gets stronger as you enter the building, and find that the Samsung booth is about as big as a mall. Luckily for you, John Biggs and I… Read More

  • The LG Spectrum Phone at CES 2012

    Hands-On With The LG Spectrum: So Last Year

    Here at CES 2012, phones are a bit in short supply. At least, new phones are. LG is one of the few companies to officially announce a new smartphone at the show, and I have to say it’s one of the best phones we’ve seen out of LG. Unfortunately, that still leaves the Spectrum quite a ways behind some of the other new phones we’ve seen recently like the Xperia S, Titan 2, or… Read More

  • Sony Xperia S Demonstration at CES 2012

    Hands-On With The Sony Ericsson Xperia S From CES

    I’ve never been a huge fan of Sony Ericsson. The phones are fine, I guess, and I certainly commend the company’s drive to differentiate. The Xperia Play is a great concept but it failed to really take off. Today, however, I was very impressed after taking a good hard look at the new Xperia S. It’s not the thinnest phone at .4 inches, nor does it have the biggest screen, but… Read More

  • First Look at the Blackberry Playbook 2.0 at CES 2012

    Hands-On With RIM’s New BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 OS: Great, But Too Late?

    When RIM first launched the BlackBerry PlayBook last spring, we were all rather shocked to find that RIM’s stand-out core services — secure messaging and productivity related apps like calendar and contacts — were… absent. The company promised an update to fix it, and after eight months said update has finally been unveiled here at CES. Read More

  • Shazam Launches New App Focused On Lyric Play: Shazam Player (Update)

    Shazam Launches New App Focused On Lyric Play: Shazam Player (Update)

    iTunes is great and everything, but it’s still just a standard music player. The most exciting feature of the whole program is Genius, at least in my opinion, and even that can be off from time to time. But Shazam wants you to ingest your music a bit differently from here on out, and has launched the Shazam Player app to give users a better chance to leverage its new feature, Lyric Play. Read More

    Sony Intros Bloggie Live, Bloggie Sport Pocket Cams To Combat Camera Phones

    Now that most of our smartphones can take crisp images and stunning video, the digital imaging sector is having a tough time holding on to its market share. Still, a few players are up for the challenge, including Sony which has today announced the latest in its line of Bloggie pocket cams: Bloggie Live and Bloggie Sport. Read More

    Watch Sony’s CES 2012 Press Conference

    You wish you were here. You pretend that you don’t want to be here because, granted, we’ve been on our feet since the crack of dawn, have been fighting MiFi and WiFi connections like we’re getting paid for it, and haven’t eaten the best food thus far. But none of those tedious little annoyances matter in a moment like this: Sony’s press conference is just… Read More

  • NVIDIA Press Conference at CES 2012

    Watch Nvidia’s CES Press Conference Live (Update)

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget companies that aren’t Apple and Samsung and Sony. But chipmakers deserve your love too, which is why you should sit back and relax while you check out this webcast of Nvidia’s live press conference at the CES 2012 International show in Las Vegas. We have no idea what we’ll see here but chances are it’ll make a big difference in the… Read More

This is the second generation of Samsung’s Series 9 notebooks, and the company calls it as thin as some of the original tablets… Read More

  • Samsung’s Smart TV Can “Listen, See, And Do” No Evil

    Samsung’s Smart TV Can “Listen, See, And Do” No Evil

    We’re live here at Samsung’s live press conference at CES International 2012, and Samsung is introducing a new Smart TV with the ability to “listen, see, and do” what it wants, without ever touching the remote control. The idea is that the TV will get smarter the longer you own it, presumably through updates, eliminating the need for you to buy a new TV to keep up pace. Read More

  • Samsung Press Conference at CES 2012

    Samsung’s Live Press Conference At CES International 2012

    It would be a huge understatement to say that Samsung had a good 2011. But that’s not what today’s about. Today, we’re looking into the future of Samsung and no place is better than the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. If you feel like following along, check out the webcast below. Read More

  • LG Officially Unveils The Spectrum With 720p Display And Verizon LTE

    LG Officially Unveils The Spectrum With 720p Display And Verizon LTE

    LG and Verizon have just announced their latest LTE Android 2.3 Gingerbread-powered smartphone: the LG Spectrum. Most impressive of all its reported specs would be the 720p display, measuring in at 4.5-inches. The only phone thus far that is able to tout such an impressive display would be the HTC Rezound, which has a slightly smaller screen and measures .53 inches thick. The new LG… Read More

  • Pioneer Announces Android Support For AppRadio 2

    Pioneer Announces Android Support For AppRadio 2

    AppRadio has always been a pretty sweet offering from Pioneer, but something important was missing: support for Android. In 2012, however, Pioneer’s new AppRadio 2 platform will support both iPhone 4/4S as well as select Android phones. It has built-in Bluetooth, which only makes sense in the car, along with two configurable RCA Pre-outs for connecting to aftermarket or OEM amplifiers. Read More

  • Netgear Intros Media Storage Router At CES: The WNDR4500

    Netgear Intros Media Storage Router At CES: The WNDR4500

    Here at the CES International 2012 in Las Vegas, Netgear has whipped out the latest iteration in its line of flagship routers: the WNDR4500. Just like the previous model, you’ll find integrated storage but this new model offers up to 2TB of built-in storage. Consumers can upgrade at any time to get more capacity.

  • Intel Adds Integrated Voice Control With Nuance Partnership

    Intel Adds Integrated Voice Control With Nuance Partnership

    Today at Intel’s CES 2012 Keynote, the firm announced a strategic partnership with Nuance. If you’ve forgotten, Nuance is a voice recognition company, so yelling at your new ultrabook may be a closer reality than you thought. You’ll have voice commands for checking in on notifications, and the processing never has to go through the cloud since ultrabooks will provide… Read More

  • Exclusive: IEEE Forms Power Matters Alliance To Determine Wireless Power Standards

    Exclusive: IEEE Forms Power Matters Alliance To Determine Wireless Power Standards

    Standards are important to the tech world. Without them, we’d all be running around to the nearest AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon store to buy replacement chargers instead of borrowing our buddies’ microUSB chargers. iPhone owners know exactly how much this sucks, and so does the IEEE which is now forming another standards association called the Power Matters Alliance.

  • Toshiba’s New Excite X10 Tablet Is World’s Thinnest 10-Inch (For Now)

    Toshiba’s New Excite X10 Tablet Is World’s Thinnest 10-Inch (For Now)

    So much excitement. This is my first CES and while MG may be correct to think that some of my fellow tech bloggers find this trip a tad tedious, I’m pink with barely controlled glee just from being here. But I’ve been excited about CES for a few weeks now, ever since I went to meet with Toshiba and get a sneak peek at their latest tablet. The Excite X10 is now the… Read More

    Acer Unveils Thinnest Ultrabook At 15mm: The Aspire S5

    Just as we expected, the first of what I’m sure will be plenty of ultrabooks has just showed itself at the CES International show in Las Vegas. Acer just announced what they’re calling the world’s thinnest ultrabook: the Acer Aspire S5. Just 15mm thick at its thickest point, the 13.3-inch ultrabook sports a magnesium alloy cover, with all of the same requirements were seeing… Read More
