  • A Close Look At Samsung And Microsoft’s Surface 2.0 (AKA SUR40)

    A Close Look At Samsung And Microsoft’s Surface 2.0 (AKA SUR40)

    The Surface has been around since 2007, but the new and improved SUR40 is a much more usable device. Microsoft and Samsung were showing off the new touch-capable table in NYC today, and I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with it. The specs in and of themselves are impressive: 40-inch 50-point multitouch screen with a 1080×1920 resolution, AMD processors, 1GB of memory… Read More

  • ZTE Plans Huge Smartphone Push Into China, U.S.

    ZTE Plans Huge Smartphone Push Into China, U.S.

    We often forget about ZTE here in the states since the company does most of its operations outside of our home turf. Still, we shouldn’t forget that the company ranks fourth in the world in terms of handset makers, largely due to its focus on budget handsets. The first half of last year brought about a loss of three percentage points in terms of profit, and ZTE is now ready to come… Read More

  • RIM To Release 7-Inch And 10-Inch PlayBooks This Year?

    RIM To Release 7-Inch And 10-Inch PlayBooks This Year?

    At the beginning of 2011, RIM was doing fine. The company still started the year with a relatively high market share in the smartphone arena, even though Android and iOS were growing rapidly. Then the PlayBook struck. I say it like that because the original PlayBook will be remembered as a calamity to the company, a horrible mistake. It was a rushed premium product missing all of… Read More

  • PrimeSense Human Interaction TV Personalization at CES 2012

    PrimeSense Demos A Gesture-Based Next-Gen TV Interface

    We’ve all seen the Kinect, or at least heard about its wonders. Well, the same company that hooked up Microsoft during “Project Natal” development has showed off some pretty wonderful technology at CES last week. It uses a 3D camera on top of your TV to let you interact with your television through gestures. To be honest, it looks a lot like any touchscreen interface… Read More

  • Wimm One Smart Watch First Look at CES 2012

    Wimm Labs VP Tim Twerdahl Shows Off The Android-Powered Wimm One Smart Watch

    There are plenty of smart watches out there in the world. The iPod Nano doubles as one, and the new MotoACTV watch is a pretty solid offering, as well. But over at Wimm Labs, they’re taking the concept to a whole new level. We got the opportunity to sit down with Wimm Labs VP Tim Twerdahl who let us get up close and personal with the new Wimm One Smart watch. It’s “a… Read More

  • Ooma TC Smartphone at CES 2012

    Ooma CEO Eric Stang Shows Off The New HD2 VoIP Handset

    At CES 2012, there are quite a few products that would totally change the way you do things (or at least save you some money) that just don’t get enough coverage. We reported on Ooma’s new HD2 VoIP handset, but nothing beats getting the facts straight from the CEO of the company. Luckily, Eric Stang had a chance to meet with us and chat it up. Read More

  • Dropcam Webcam at CES 2012

    Dropcam CEO Greg Duffy On Getting Into Hardware: “Don’t Ship Before It’s Ready”

    If you were paying attention last week, you can probably surmise that we have about a billion hours worth of footage to process from last week’s CES International show. There’s live streaming coverage that has now been archived, as well as quite a few recorded interviews including this one with Greg Duffy, Dropcam CEO. Speaking with John Biggs, Duffy shows off the new Dropcam HD… Read More

  • 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

    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

    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

    Samsung Debuts Series 9 Ultrabook: A 15-Inch Display On A 14-Inch Body

    Here at the CES 2012 International conference, we promised you’d be seeing ultrabooks galore. Well, Samsung isn’t going to let you down, today announcing the Samsung Series 9 ultrabook. The Series 9 sports a 15-inch display on a compact 14-inch body. 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, Rovio Partner To Put Angry Birds On Your Smart TV

Through a partnership with Rovio, Samsung is bringing the most popular mobile gaming app in the world to the living room. And unlike offerings from Roku, the gaming integration will be built right into your TV. 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
