At CES this past January, Intel talked more about wearables than anything else.

When Intel announced its development of a "Smart Bracelet" and other digital lifestyle products at January's CES, there were many reasons to be impressed. In a way, it seemed kind of odd that Intel took as long as it did to make such a reveal, but the fact that it was going to be bringing its own products and... Read more...

For those looking to pick up a feature-rich Windows 8.1 tablet, ASUS' VivoTab Note 8 is an attractive offering, and the best part is, it's just hit the Microsoft Store. That's the upside - the downside is that as of the time of writing, it's shown as being "Out of stock" - a bit surprising given the listing just... Read more...
Ouya has yet another competitor in the micro-console category. During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week, Chinese hardware maker Huawei had on display Tron, a tiny console that resembles a shrunken Mac Pro that's powered by NVIDA's Tegra 4 System-on-Chip (SoC). Though small in stature, Tron is... Read more...
This is one of those stories that seems a little too good to be true, but given the fact that T-Mobile has tried hard to disrupt the business of other US mobile carriers, there is some hope. Over the past year, T-Mobile has rolled-out some interesting features, such as free international data roaming and the... Read more...

Generally, notebook manufacturers aim to release notebooks at two major inflection points: right around the back-to-school season, and at CES each January. Acer, however, is mixing things up a bit as it announces two new lines in the TravelMate range this morning. The first is the TravelMate P645 Ultrabook, which is... Read more...
When Microsoft made the decision to forego exhibiting at this year's CES, I think the general reaction from the industry was one of confusion. After all, Microsoft has long been a major presenter at the event, sporting one of the biggest booths front and center. Stranger still was the fact that the company decided to pull out at a time when... Read more...
We’ve all been eagerly anticipating the presumed launch of Valve’s Steam Box gaming console since last spring and especially after there was some buzz (and ultimately, misinformation) about the device at CES this year, but now it appears as though Valve is finally going to debut the device on Monday. The... Read more...
One of the companies I like keeping an eye on at any given major conference is ASUS. Without fail, the company always seems to manage to show-off products that both get people talking, and have some serious questionability about their potential success. At CES this past January, one such product touted was the... Read more...
The portable gaming market has been evolving briskly lately, as just a few weeks ago at CES 2013, we got our first hands-on look at both the Razer Edge gaming tablet and NVIDIA’s Project SHIELD mobile gaming device.

Now that CES is over, we're left with one major thought: when are those gorgeous 4K HDTVs hitting the market? It's clear that 4K is going to be the next major leap in high-definition television, and it's likely that many with decade-old HDTVs will soon be tempted to update those. But in order to do so, a lot of other... Read more...
For the last several years, CNET has been coordinating the CES product awards at that big annual electronics show in Las Vegas (you may have heard it mentioned around here a few times), but that arrangement has abruptly ended. According to Boston.com, the Consumer Electronics Agency (CEA), which runs the show, will... Read more...
One of the buzzwords to come out of CES last week wasn't really a world at all: it's 4K. But the term you'll be hearing more often is "Ultra HD." Samsung actually showcased an 85" Ultra HD monster at the show, and to those who generally complain that CES is full of concepts that never ship -- have a look at this. The... Read more...
The last thing Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) needs right now is to have to deal with continued supplier issues as the year reboots. It's been a tumultuous year for the Sunnyvale chip designer, and to ensure things on the supply side run smoothly, AMD has reportedly tapped Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to build its upcoming...

Over the years, SanDisk has become best known as a supplier of flash memory cards and accessories. But the SanDisk folks we talked to at CES today say they'd really like to squeeze SSDs onto that list as well. In fact, SSDs were all they wanted to talk about at the show. And in terms of its specifications, their new consumer SSD, the... Read more...
Tough tablets? Panasonic's got a couple of new ones to introduce at CES 2013.

Both of them follow the original 10" Android-powered... Read more...
A humorous thing about CES is that every year, there's always a couple of buzzwords that you can't ignore. "3D" has been a big one in recent years, as has been "cloud", "ultrabooks", "superphones' and so on. This year, a major buzzword is one that really caught fire throughout 2012: "4K". We're of course talking about... Read more...
Just when you thought that tablet resolutions couldn't get any more ridiculous, here comes Panasonic with the unveiling of a 4K resolution model. Yes, 4K.

With all the hustle and bustle of CES surrounding us, let's take a moment for a feel-good story. The Chelsea district in New York is comprised of both rich and poor; the rich can undoubtedly afford Internet, while the poor may not.
