Wacom proves that size does matter, and pressure sensitivity too

Cowon has a tiny, touchable PMP for you

I love these guys. They make good stuff. Their booth was pretty sparse, but the A3 and D2 were looking good in their little enclosures. The A3 (right) I’d seen before, and it was the D2 that cau

Voodoo's vanity case is the shiniest of them all

Hands-on with Garmin's nu nĂ¼vi line of GPS gear

A few days ago you guys got the preview of Garmin’s nuvis. Well, I’d like to confirm that they are as slim and featureless as they seem in the heavily-optimized press shots they released.

Anyone have an OLPC network password I can borrow?

One of the fun things about expos like CES is seeing what kind of crazy Wi-Fi networks show up. Right now, we’re in the Blogger’s Lounge using one called “BLOGGERS” (yesterday
