The iPad offers great promise in terms of music making, and I'm not talking about karaoke or strange virtual guitar concepts: artists like Gorrilaz have managed to record full songs using them. Now you can, too, thanks to Griffin.
Since Sammy announced in early 2011 that it was planning to release a Chromebox, everybody forgot about the idea. Now the company has announced it's shipping mid-2012, but we're not sure it knows exactly who's going to buy it.
OnLive, venerable streamer of PC games to tablets, has a new trick up its sleeve: putting Windows 7 on iPads and Android tablets. Oh really? Thank a lot, OnLive. There's officially nowhere left to escape work. And the worst part? It works. Really. Well.
Designed for the person who's never deleted a single file and maxes out their monthly bandwidth limits on torrents, Victorinox dropped a bomb on CES with their new SSD flash drive which will actually be available in capacities up to one terabyte. That's a thousand gigabytes people. Enough to hold like a trillion ebooks or something. (Please don't do the math.)
Lift and restick. Lift and restick. You've been trying to get that screen protector on for over an hour now only to be repeatedly foiled by an errant speck of dust or pernicious air bubble. Bugger that. This new roll-on cover promises to apply it right, the first time.
Day one is winding down at CES, and we're already starting to see some trends emerge. Like, everyone seems to have the flu. And, wow, those are some big-arse TVs. But we've been picking up on a few themes that seem to be emerging after this first official day of CES. Here are the highlights, lowlights, and ultralights that made the biggest impression:
You thought your Roomba was the epitome of automated home maintenance? Its random wandering approach to cleaning the dirt off your floors is downright prehistoric compared to this killbot which actively hunts down and cleans the air in your room.
Just stop me when this sounds ridiculous: A tablet. Built for gaming. Like, really built for gaming. With twin analogue joysticks. That are permanently built into it. That's Razer's Project Fiona. And it's more amazing than you think.
Origin's been one of the craziest overclocking outfits around for a while now, but its laptops haven't been really, let's say, aesthetically pleasing. Its latest rigs got the Ricky Lake makeover treatment, though, but not at the cost of raw arsekicking power: they still clock in at a ridiculous 4.5GHz.
How would you roll if you were a big baller CEO of one of the world's largest electronics companies? If you're Monster Cable CEO Noel Lee, on a tricked out gold-rimmed Segway of course. Oh, and look, a Segway-strapped admirer!
While it may look like your average Android tablet adorned with a pair of button-festooned handlebars, beneath the shimmering screen of Razer's Project Fiona lurks the beating heart of a high-powered gaming PC. Are we looking at the future of portable gaming?
Intel would be the first to admit that it's fallen far behind int he mobile game. The company desperately wants in on the post-PC land grab, but so far hasn't been able to put out a chip that's not a battery-draining false start. Medfield is the processor that's supposed to change all that. And based on our brief hands on, it honestly just might.
