Of all of the promises Intel made today about the future of ultrabooks, none was quite as appealing—or at least, attention-getting—as this wonderfully odd concept that uses a keyboard-wide transparent trackpad that doubles as a window into your screen. Hello, Nikiski. You're a beautifully odd machine.
The ultrabooks you've seen these last few months—and that, good lord, you're going to see in drove these next couple of days? They're plenty capable, sure. But they're pretenders. The real deal, the ultra ultrabooks? Those are still a few months away. And when they get here, they're going to be fast.
Portable wireless speakers are usually a pretty tame affair. While the Jambox is lovely to look at, it doesn't give you the impression that your ears are in for an audio assault. At least not like Klipsch's Stadium speaker.

At least one more company thinks you're going to like Google TV: LG's LMG860 and LMG620 not only pack the company's own "smart TV" software, but the more polished Android-y dashboard as well. That's two ways to channel surf smart.
There's a raft of new 3DTVs out from LG, and they've all got one thing in common: the acknowledgement that the third dimension has been pretty lame so far. Not lame? Depth control, passive glasses, and dual-view multiplayer gaming potential.
Altec Lansing isn't just content to make a wireless AirPlay speaker for OSX and iOS users, so they opted for a different strategy: a universal Wi-Fi speaker controlled via a proprietary app on iOS, Android, Windows and OS X devices.
Lamborghini isn’t the only Italian sports car manufacturer to fancy a slice of the consumer electronics market -- Ferrari has teamed up with Logic3, the long-time PC accessory and speaker manufacturer, to create a series heaphones and speaker docks.
