01/07/2009, [CES 2009] Unlike many other companies that will launch their products at CES, BlueAnt takes a slightly different route by announcing the upcoming Q1 Bluetooth headset instead, with the real deal being made available sometime in the second quarter of this year.

01/07/2009, The idea behind PogoPlug is simple: Plug it on an electrical outlet, then hook it up to your wired Ethernet network. Finally, connect a USB drive to it and voila, you have an internet accessible USB drive. The user will just have to register its drive to my.pogoplug.com and the web service will do the rest. There’s no need to open and re-route ports . People don’t even need to […]

01/07/2009, [CES 2009] We just got out the Sony press conference and we got our hands on the highly rumored “pocket size” (if you have large pockets) Sony VAIO. Personally, I love the design and I would get one to cover tech conferences. Some people think that the pricetag “about $900″ , according to the press release, is too high for the config: 1.33-GHz Z530 Intel Atom, 2GB RAM, 60GB (standard) […]

01/07/2009, The Samsung HMX R10 can records full-HD movies and snap high-resolution still images, but what we really like about it is that it tries to set the bar higher when it comes to camcorder ergonomics. We have tried many models over the years and often, handling a camcorder hasn’t been our best experience with an imaging device. Samsung tried to change this with the HMX-R10 by changing the way people […]
01/07/2009, Having a top of the line camcorder is great, but if your ultimate goal is to produce web videos, it might be overkill, and therefor over-expensive.

Samsung gives it a battery life of 3 hours and believes that the 16GB of internal memory should be able to store 8 hours of H.264 (compressed) video. And if that’s not enough, it is […]
