One of the biggest stories at CES 2011 was Intel's Sandy Bridge. The second generation of Core processors is a huge deal, and the performance gains are definitely real. PC makers have been hurrying to offer new, refreshed systems with these cutting-edge chips in them, and Digital Storm is no difference. They have just announced that Sandy... Read more...
Here's a couple of things that go well together: a USB gaming headset, and a new mid-tower case. It's an interesting combination to be perfectly honest, but it's a pair of new gadgets that Corsair is introducing this week. The Company's HS1A USB Headset falls into their Gaming Audio Series, while there's a new white version of the Graphite... Read more...
3D wasn't quite as big of a deal at this year's CES as compared to last year, but it was still very much in play. There were lots of new takes on 3D, and lots of sets that relied on passive glasses versus the more common active glasses. Lenovo was one of the those companies pushing a new 3D product, believe it or not. Rather than issuing a... Read more...
Well, there's really no choice but to give it up for Bigfoot Networks. The company that was simply selling standalone Killer gaming NICs a few months ago now has a bunch of new partnerships under their belt, with an integrated NIC/GPU on the market, a mainboard deal with Asus and now, a motherboard deal with another...

The PlayStation 3 has always been seen as a pretty great media/entertainment center. It plays Blu-ray, streams Netflix, and even handles gaming. But one of the major drawbacks in the eyes of hardcore home theater buffs is that it uses a Bluetooth protocol for its remote instead of IR. Most home cinemas with universal remotes talk to components... Read more...
New PCs? CyberPower has them, as do lots of other companies that were introducing new products this week based on Intel's Sandy Bridge desktop and notebook platforms.

Bigfoot Networks may have found their niche and their big break all at once, and they aren't even introducing a new product at CES. The secret? Partnerships. A few months ago, the company managed to get their Killer E2100 gaming network interface card integrated into a shipping GPU. The card manages bandwidth and has... Read more...
Creative really hasn't had a huge splash in the audio business (at least in relation to the PC audio business) since the early days of the Sound Blaster audio cards, but with such great audio cards being integrated into motherboards now, that business seems to be on the decline. But the company is still kicking, and... Read more...
Asus definitely made a splash at this year's CES with their onslaught of sexy tablet PCs.  We were expecting to see a healthy offering from Asus and weren't disappointed.  However, what was more impressive were the designs Asus stepped out with that broke the plain old slate mold.  Our favorite perhaps, at least until we can...

Western Digital's Scorpio Black lineup has gained another member this week. The company has just introduced a 750GB version of the 7200RPM 2.5" drive, which is perfectly suited for upgrading the notebook in your life.

Just about every company out in Las Vegas this week has a cellphone with their name on it. Okay, that's probably stretching the truth a good amount, but there isn't a shortage of new phones at CES, that's for certain. Acer is also introducing a new piece this week, the Liquid Mini. This phone's designed to be a fun, colorful, stylish one.... Read more...
There's just no question about it: Skype is really killing it. It's the go-to name in VoIP communications, and it's hard to find someone these days with a smartphone that hasn't at least heard of Skype. In fact, most have probably used it at least once. And with 4G technologies coming to light, it's obvious that Skype... Read more...

The ATRIX 4G uses Motorola's webtop application along with one... Read more...
What's the definition of a tablet these days? Generally, most tablets are between 7" and 12", but ViewSonic has us wondering if that's the case. The company has just introduced what they're calling a new tablet at CES. The ViewPad 4 is joining the ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10. You could probably guess, but the ViewPad 4 is a 4.1" tablet. What's... Read more...
One of the common concerns among users of AMD’s previous-generation mobile platforms is that they tend to run relatively hot in comparison to many of Intel’s offerings. And we’re not necessarily talking just about chip temperatures either, but rather the heat that radiated out to the notebook’s... Read more...

Last night at Digital Experience, Toshiba gave us a closer look at the company's upcoming Android-powered tablet. It looks pretty sweet, with it's 10.1-inch widescreen display.

We're already familiar with phone/PC hybrids -- they're called smartphones, and these days nearly everyone has one. But Speakal's just-announced BTS8 is a phone/PC hybrid of a completely different sort. It's an office telephone and miniature computer all rolled into one, and you won't be stuffing this into your pants pocket. The BTS8 comes... Read more...
