CES 2007

  • The Hottest Booth At CES 2007 Was…

    the RIAA’s booth. Guess piracy must have cut back its booth budget. Read More

  • CES 2007: TeleNav, Trimble Outdoors And Polaroid's ClickFree Products


    There are a few more products from CES I wanted to fill you in on. One I met with before CES (TeleNav), one I missed my meeting with (Trimble Outdoors) and the other was a spur-of-the-moment thing (Polaroid’s Media Backup Drives). TeleNav makes GPS solutions for mobile devices. (Trimble does, too, for that matter.) TeleNav’s big announcement for CES was that it’ll have… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…The Recap


    Just thought I’d milk CES for a couple more posts today. The first of which is this handy recap of my CES 2007 meetings. Here are all the links, and so you don’t have to wade through all the posts looking for specific companies, I’ve listed them out with the individual links. If there are any products that you’d really like us to get you more information on, please let… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Hump Day Part Two


    It’s been a long friggin’ week, but I’m in the home stretch now. Just four meetings left: Cyberlink, Toshiba, Linksys and Microsoft’s SPOT group. If you’ve bought a new Windows computer in the past few years or installed a new optical drive or graphics card in your PC, there’s a very good chance you have some bit of Cyberlink’s software on your computer.

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Hump Day Part One


    It’s finally Wednesday, January 10. It’s my last day of meetings. Seven of them in a row starting bright and early with Akimbo and their CEO who’s named same as me. Put simply, Akimbo is a content provider. They deliver Web-based video to TVs. They’re not trying to replace broadcast, satellite, or cable TV, but offer options that are more tailored for your personal… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…M-Audio, The Sands And A Whole Lotta Targus Bags


    After nearly three days of talking to vendors about their products, you start to feel like you’re on a marketing treadmill. But every now and then you hit a meeting with people that are really passionate about what they are doing. And on the second half of day three, January 9, I met with three such companies: M-Audio, CoolIT Systems and Targus. Read More

  • Gravity Defyer Shoes Don't Actually Defy Gravity

    Man, I got all excited when I read the headline for this video, but it’s just a buncha people amazed at how much better their feet feel after changing their shoes at CES. The shoes don’t actually defy gravity and I have to imagine that there’s an astronaut or two that would disagree with their weightless claims. Nonetheless, these people seem “genuinely” thrilled… Read More

  • What We Missed at CES: Sanyo Stuff

    Due to some terrible scheduling oversight, as we stalked around CES, we somehow missed Sanyo. Through our neglect, we managed to miss Sanyo showing off two products that couldn’t be more different from one another: the Sprint Power Vision M1 and the Zero-Gravity Massage Chair. While I certainly saw my share of phones at CES, I definitely could have used a go on the chair (although… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Samsung's Mobiles, Kodak's Colors And A Wireless Router That Launches Missiles


    Hooray for Tuesday! It’s now the morning of January 9 and I’m headed to a 9 a.m. meeting with Samsung Mobile, but my cab takes the Strip to get to the LVCC making me late. (In case you missed the previous entries, here are Jan. 7 and Jan. 8, parts one and two.) Despite the continued accolades heaped upon Samsung’s phones by others, I’ve always been
    a bit sour on them. Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…iRiver's CLIX2, Shuttle's X200, Antec's Cases And Mini Hamburgers


    So after a long day running around the LVCC it was time to head off to a 3:00 p.m. meeting with iRiver. I was looking forward to this meeting since I set it up and thankfully I was not disappointed. Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Seagate's Hard Drives, iPod Accessories Galore And Exhaustion

    , but with more walking. This entry catalogs the companies I met with the first “half” of January 8, my first full day of the show. After waiting in a cab line for half an hour and then coughing up $20 to get from our hotel to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) I hit the show floor for my first meeting at 9:30 with Seagate. Last time I spoke with the company reps back at… Read More

  • Unboxed: Treo 750


    Behold one of the fruits of my CES schmoozing: a Palm Treo 750. It arrived fresh at my doorstep this morning via a dubious looking FedEx guy (he wasn’t my regular courier, quite strange!). I will be conducting a full review over the next few days, but for now, allow me to whet your appetite with some hot-and-steamy Treo 750 porn. All angles exposed below! Read More

  • Sony VAIO VGX-TP1DT Roomba PC


    As Biggs and I roamed the floors of CES, we laid eyes on this peculiar looking PC from Sony being featured in some sort of webcast. We headed over to the Sony booth to try to locate it but were unsuccessful. Our queries to the booth monkeys yielded only looks of bewilderment. Distraught, we returned to the press room where we ripped on Vince for about an hour until it was time to… Read More

  • Ambidextrous Keyboard For the Ambidextrous

    Released at CES this year, Cypress came out strong with a keyboard that swivels to accomodate both left and right handed users and the ability to adjust height. Ya that’s about it, no word on pricing or availability. UPDATE – I thought this looked familiar. Infinium just rebadged it.

  • CES 2007: Two Queens, No Smoking

    Since everyone else has done a post on CES, I believe it is now my turn to share my story with you. CES 2007 was terrible. At least 75% of the stuff there was terrible and compared to CES 2006, 2007’s show was utter garbage. There wasn’t a “stand out” product, the iPhone announcement basically halted activity and coverage on Tuesday, and Josh told me that when two… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…


    I had such high hopes and big plans for this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. And yet, within four hours of setting down in Las Vegas, my dreams began to crumble. I wanted to offer you, the readers, more than just constant, mind-numbing blasts of product announcements, so I scheduled more than 40 meetings with a wide variety of vendors between Sunday, January 7 and Wednesday… Read More

  • Taking a Spin with the PC


    Many gamers already sweat WAY too much, but that’s more from bad hygiene than actually from physical effort exerted during gameplay. While the Wii will get your fat ass off the couch for a change, to really feel the burn there is the PCGamerBike, a mini exercise bike that connects via a USB connection, and can be used with various PC games. It is actually meant to be an integral part of… Read More

  • CES Post Show Thoughts From a Tired Writer


    For many of us the best part of being back from CES is that it is now the longest amount of time until we have to go back to Las Vegas for another CES. That’s not to say that the show isn’t enjoyable, but as with any trade show it means a lot of work, too much walking and too many things to see – many of which will likely never come out. Here are a few thoughts on CES… Read More

  • Best In Show: LG's Swinger


    LG’s dual format DVD player was awarded best in show at CES. Find out who else won at CNET. Read More

  • Takeoffs and Landings


    Our CES Vegas adventure is coming to a close. Vince succeeded in his goal of vomiting at every major casino on the strip. Biggs acquired a new nickname: Mumbles. Goldman learned what a kick to the face feels like. And I stayed sober enough to keep the three of them out of jail. We’ll be flying around for most of the day, so posting will be sporadic, but we’ll be back to normal… Read More
