CES 2008

Hands on with Tannoy i-30, PSP dock

In a world filled with 1,000s of iPod docks, do we really need another one? 95 percent of them are crap. Pure unadulterated pieces of shat. Single drivers just don’t cut it. I was skeptical goin

Ear to the Floor: Hot CES Audio Gear

CES 2008: Sensio's 3D TV tech works for us colorblind nerd jerks!

I love the new types of 3D technology coming to our homes. Sensio’s got a type they were showing off, and it works. I’m colorblind, so 3D usually just looks like crap to me, but their syst

The latest craze sweeping the nation: it's the Wü!

No, not the Wii, the Wü. Complete with little dots over the things of the U. This was one of many knock-off games present at CES, and almost certainly the most shameless, unless you count the guys wh

Next to Everex’s Eee-killer, they had another product, more a prototype than anything, but with a similar form factor. This one has its baby touchpad in a more traditional spot, which made it lo

Hands on with the the 3rd Space force feedback vest

I’d probably be the first to raise an eyebrow at the idea of a gaming vest that whacks you where you’re being shot/cut/bludgeoned, but these guys have made something that could really add

Belkin Mouse Trap

Belkin makes a lot of great products. Belkin also makes a lot of questionable products. The Mouse Trap is a perfect example of the latter. Maybe it’s because I haven’t used a mouse pad in

CES could leave Las Vegas, pigs take to the air

NBC is posting that CES will leave Las Vegas, which is like saying the Pope will leave Rome. Las Vegas’ 31st International Consumer Electronics Show could be one of its last, organizers said Monday,
