• D-Link's wireless USB hub would be handy for your mom

    Tired of your mom calling you and saying “Honey, do I plug in the blue cable to the printer? Or the modem? Or the wall?” Well, you can set her up right now and the only thing she’ll have to plug in and out is a little USB receiver. All the other junk plugs into the cute little hub and the data is served from there. This D-Link thing isn’t too impressive, but… Read More

What THX’s Media Director aka Blackbird does is basically turn all your content (games, movies, or music) into ‘smart content’ that sends out its AV settings, which is then dynamically configured for the best playback… Read More

  • Duracell now makes SD cards and flash drives, apparently

    Passing by a Duracell booth, I had almost skipped it completely but noticed that some of the batteries were small and thin, and said “SD” on them. It turns out that Duracell is lending its brand name to a new set of other small, ubiquitous things. Not sure if you’ll be seeing these in retail any time soon but they looked perfectly sellable. Jump drives after the, er, jump. Read More

  • Olevia's signal-enhancing TV can't be captured in pictures

    At the Olevia booth, they had this TV with a big line down the middle. On the right was a regular HD feed, and once it crossed the line it entered the enhancement zone. The normal signal actually looked fine, but the image processor really made it pop, as they say. Motion blur was reduced, sharpness of edges was increased, and the contrast seemed better because of the enhanced… Read More

  • FlyTunes brings Internet radio to your iPhone

    [photopress:ft11.jpg,full,center] FlyTunes sounds good. It’s a new service for cellphone and other Wi-Fi devices that tunes into Internet radio stations, turning your staid iPhone into a wherever-you-go-radio. In that sense it’s sorta like satellite radio, though I’d be wary of calling it a “satellite radio killer.” In any event, the company insists that caching… Read More
