    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 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.

  • 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

    Here at the CES International 2012 in Las Vegas, Netgear has whipped out the latest iteration in its line of flagship routers: the WNDR4500.

But it gets better than that. Read More

  • 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)

    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

    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

  • SolarKindle Cover Is Walking On Sunshine (Whoaaa!)

    SolarKindle Cover Is Walking On Sunshine (Whoaaa!)

    I’ve done my fair share of Kindle cover research, and to tell you the truth I wish this new cover from SolarFocus was around when I did. It’s the world’s first solar cover for the Kindle, with a solar panel built right in. The SolarKindle promises “up to three months of unplugged Kindle use under normal sunlight environment.” In my experience that means near a… Read More

  • Striiv Fitness Gadget Puts Personalized Challenges On The Menu

    Striiv Fitness Gadget Puts Personalized Challenges On The Menu

    With the New Year already underway, I’m sure many of you are working hard to lose the holiday weight or are otherwise engaged in some hard-core New Years Resolution-style dieting. It’s that time of year, which is likely why Striiv is making a push to add new features. Many of you may remember Striiv from our earlier coverage, in which we decided that the little pocket-sized… Read More

  • iMessage Bug Traps Android Converters’ Personal Conversations… But There’s A Fix!

    iMessage Bug Traps Android Converters’ Personal Conversations… But There’s A Fix!

    iMessage is awesome, right? Since iOS 5 came out I’ve been telling all my friends and family (who, ironically, aren’t what you’d call tech savvy) to update and start sending messages for free. It’s super fast, I tell them, and your messages will be blue! Thrilling, to say the least. There’s just one problem: If you switch to an Android device from an iPhone… Read More

  • Roku’s Streaming Stick Makes Your Dumb TV Much Smarter

    Roku’s Streaming Stick Makes Your Dumb TV Much Smarter

    Smart TVs are great and all — who doesn’t want a dash of WiFi with their daily dose of reality television? — but the segment will face challenges in the market. For one, a $49 Roku LT is a much better value proposition than a $1,000+ smart TV. Secondly, the hardware moves at such a rapid pace that even with solid software updates, your smart TV will likely be outdated much… Read More

  • HP Unveils Two New Desktop PCs: The Omni All-In-One And The HPE h9 Phoenix

    HP Unveils Two New Desktop PCs: The Omni All-In-One And The HPE h9 Phoenix

    Ultrabooks are all the rage for 2012, and we’ll probably see quite a few of them at CES next week.

    Nokia Ace (Lumia 900) Specs Trickle Out

    Until now the 4G LTE-capable Nokia Ace (or Lumia 900, if you prefer) has been largely a mystery. We got a peek at some leaked press shots last week (pictured), but all we’ve heard is that it’ll hit AT&T shelves on March 18, it’ll be powered by the Windows Phone platform, and that it’ll come equipped with an LTE radio. Today, however, PocketNow claims to have… Read More

  • Miss Your Cat? Now Fluffy Can Send You Tweets All Day Long

    Miss Your Cat? Now Fluffy Can Send You Tweets All Day Long

    You like cats. Even if you’re a “dog person,” or allergic, I still know your little cat-loving secret. And how do I know? Well, since you’re here on TechCrunch it’s apparent that you’re at least mildly interested in the internet, which happens to be infested with cats. Read More

    iPhone 4S Beats Out Lumia 800 In Benchmark Testing (Video)

    Have you been wondering which mobile browser is the fastest of late? It would be an understandable thing to pontificate, seeing that Android takes the cake when it comes to LTE support, iOS has the class-leading dual-core A5 chip on its side, and Windows Phone’s IE mobile browser is basically a beast. It’s a worthwhile question, to say the least. Luckily MyNokiablog noticed a… Read More

    Let The Race Begin: Google Launches Elections Hub

    A new year is always exciting. A Clean slate. But once every four years, something very important comes into play: a presidential election. This year, all of your election information won’t be any more readily available than it is right here, on the interwebs, and Google is set to be your go-to place to keep up with them. Today via the Official Google Blog, the search giant has… Read More
