Alright guys, I don’t know if you have checked out ComputerTV‘s CES Videos but one of them intrigued me enough to try out a product for myself. I’m talking about NVIDIA’s answer to 3D gaming.
CES 2009 approaches – and you’ll get an inside view of all there is to see from ComputerTV and Intel’s Core i7 processor. Coverage starts January 6th!
The competitive friction. The dollar signs. And the high profile endorsements.
No, Iâ€™m not talking about any of the recent Democratic and Republican primaries. Iâ€™m talking about the heretofore everlasting battle between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD.
The war waging between the two brands to become the â€œVHSâ€ of the high definition disc format has been steaming hot and extraordinarily heavy. Just a couple of months ago there seemed to be no end in site. But since this yearâ€™s CES in Las Vegas, and a couple of key endorsements from Warner Bros and National Geographic, it seems that the blueprints are being drafted for the eminent tombstone of the HD-DVD format.
Okay, Touch screens arenâ€™t new, not even on phones. But wait: Thereâ€™s something different about the NeoNode N2. This fully touch-screen wireless phone is designed to work with sweeping gestures from your thumb and finger. This one-handed touch screen phone replaces the hunt-and-peck touch screen technique with a more ergonomic Infrared grid. The grid detects â€œsignatureâ€ motions of the thumb and finger, and translates these motions into commands.
Our dauntless Tech Review Guru Logan found a gem at this yearâ€™s CES 2008: An open case for the HP Blackbird Gaming PC. This is not your older brotherâ€™s thrown-together gaming case (remember leaving the sides off for better air flow?). This case was designed from the ground up to be unique; to turn heads in the gaming industry where itâ€™s no longer enough to pack heavy hitting hardware into a rectangular box.
Everyone loves Sony Technology. Anyone born in or around the eighties had a Walkman (Which, by the way, is now a phone). But what has Sony done for us lately? Well, lots. Think Blu-ray. Now stop thinking blue and start thinking OLED. Thatâ€™s Organic Light Emitting Diode. What does that mean? Itâ€™s a new form of display that promises to knock the pants of current LCD and Plasma units.
Whatâ€™s new in the world of Toshiba? (Aside from the fiasco that is HD DVD, of course). Toshiba is a world-renowned leader in electronics, computers, and technology development. This year is no different: Toshiba continues to impress, especially this year at CES 2008 in Las Vegas. Sr. Editor Lonny Paul takes you through Toshibaâ€™s booth at the annual technology event.
Even though Apple products get their own show every year, CES 2008 is Las Vegas was literally inundated with products for the Apple iPod. Whether you want to use your iPod as a clock, radio, or just want to walk around your house using your iPhone like a regular phone, there was something for everyone. TigerTV host Nikki was on the scene and got to sample some of the great iPod accessories that were dreamed up by the showâ€™s participants. Check it out!
Portable Printers: The words bring to mind the laughable image of someone struggling to fit an inkjet into an overhead storage bin on an airplane. But Planon has been innovating portability into the stuff we never think of as get-up-and-go material for a while, and this year at CES 2008 our TigerTV host Logan got a look at the next thing in ultra-portable Printers: The PrintStik.
