CES is the acronym for the (International) Consumer Electronics Show, one of the largest consumer-electronics shows in the world. Although it is held in Las Vegas today, the first CES happened in June 1967 in New York City and Bob Gavin, the CEO of Motorola was the opening keynote speaker for that first edition. Subsequently, CES was held twice a year: the summer edition was in New York, and the winter edition was in Las Vegas, that is, until 1998 when CES became a once-a-year show. CES has been the introduction place for key products and technologies, including: Pong (1975), Nintendo NES (1985), Tetris (1988), Compact Disc (1991), HDTV (1998), Xbox (2001), Blu-Ray (2003), OLED TV (2008).

Energizer Solar Folding Lantern

01/08/2010, [CES 2010] Too lazy to make a camp fire so that everyone can sit around it while sharing ghost stories? The Energizer Solar Folding Lantern will come in handy then, as it can illuminate all around, albeit it does not give out heat like a standard fire...

FastPencil for budding authors

01/07/2010, [CES 2010] They say that everyone has a good book in them, but how many of us have actually taken the time to sit down and pen our thoughts? If you have always wanted to write a book but don’t know how to get around it, how about engaging...

i-mate 810-F supertough phone

01/07/2010, [CES 2010] We thought that i-mate had called it quits where making rugged cellphones are concerned, but they are back with the 810-F which is a general bad-ass handset, capable of withstanding just about any abuse you throw at it. It complies with...

01/07/2010, [CES 2010] Bluetooth earphones and headphones seem to have hit a speed bump as there doesn’t seem to be anything that really revolutionizes the industry, as steps are made in extremely small increments. The same can be said for the BlueBuds BB4 from...

Panasonic Skype in TV hands-on

01/07/2010, [CES 2010] We went to check the live demo of Skype embedded in Panasonic’s HDTVs. It seems very simple to use (more so than on a PC), and you really get full screen video, but that’s definitely not in HD. The content was in SD, and upscale...

Que reader hands-on

01/07/2010, [CES 2010] The Que reader looks really great, there’s no question about that. Next to it, the Kindle looks so cheap, but it is still the best selling ebook out there, I think. That said the Que’s user interface and demonstration content (USA...
