January 7, 2014 11:00 am | by HANNAH DREIER, Associated Press | News | Comments

A new kind of race car made its debut Monday with cartoonishly loud revving, the smell of burning rubber, and not a trace of exhaust.

This is what a backwards keyboard looks like

January 6, 2014 4:41 pm | by Allegra Sparta, Editorial Intern | Blogs | Comments

The TrewGrip backwards keyboard looks like a toy, but it’s a lot more expensive than your average LeapFrog. The Mobile QWERTY keyboard from TrewGrip will set you back anywhere from $250 to $350 when they hit the market later this year. This keyboard seems one of those advancements that’s just “technology for the sake of new technology” instead of something that will actually be useful and popular. At least it looks kind of cool.

Would you mortgage your home for a TV?

January 6, 2014 12:23 pm | by Jason Lomberg, Technical Editor | Blogs | Comments

Because the forthcoming 105-inch curved Ultra-HD OLED TVs from Samsung and LG can’t possibly fit any reasonable definition of “affordable.” But then, CES — the “global stage for innovation” — is no stranger to expensive toys that no one can afford (check out last year’s 110-inch 4K monstrosity from Samsung). This year, the two South Korean entertainment conglomerates outdid themselves....

Speaking of speakers

January 25, 2013 9:14 am | by M. Simon, Technical Contributor | Blogs | Comments

The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) has been in the news at ECN, but boy was I surprised when my home town paper featured a CES story on its front page this past week.

CES 2013 a meager showcase for consumer electronics

January 17, 2013 2:20 pm | by Jason Lomberg, Technical Editor | Microsoft Corp. | Articles | Comments

CES has never been more irrelevant. I wrote those words last year when Microsoft pulled out of CES and the industry was in the thralls of its 3D hysteria, pushing a technological gimmick that no one wanted. Since then, the industry has found a new rallying cry – 4K (or Ultra-HD) – and largely abandoned hopes of shoving stereoscopy down our throats, but the pizzazz is still missing.
