After our first day of CES we discuss what tech is making waves in Vegas. What grabbed your attention and which products will never see the store shelves. Molly breaks down her interview with Google's Eric Schmidt and Brian Tong reflects on his time with LL Cool J live on the CNET stage.
Anyone who's used a computer for any length of time--especially anyone who installs and uninstalls software with any frequency--knows that it doesn't take long for your machine to become cluttered with invalid registry entries, broken shortcuts, and other junk that takes up space and slows system performance. Eusing Cleaner is a simple program that provides a variety of tools for tidying up your computer. As with any program that accesses the registry, proceed with caution, but used judiciously Eusing Cleaner can definitely take out the trash.
Eusing Cleaner has a straightforward interface that looks a little dated but … Read more
Although all you really need for Bible study is a copy of the Bible, having some extra tools can help you get the most out of the scriptures. ActionBible is an easy-to-use program that can help you quickly locate desired passages, keep track of what you've done, and record your ideas and questions. We think this would be a great tool for clergy, laypeople, and anyone else with a desire to delve into the Bible.
ActionBible has a plain and intuitive layout, and it's quite easy to get started with it. A pane on the left side contains … Read more
It's already been a great year for the Danish headphone designers over at Aiaiai, and it's about to get even better.
The company's TMA-1 DJ headphones recently earned a spot in an exhibit at SFMOMA documenting contemporary industrial designs influenced by Dieter Rams, and its latest headphones, the Capital, are already garnering shrieks of schoolgirl glee from audiophiles who appreciate equal parts form and function.
Aiaiai supplied the audio technology for the Capital headphones, but once again leaned on Scandinavian design group Kibisi to design their form. The two made a great first impression last year with the release of the Tracks supra-aural headphones, and Kibisi's simple design ethos is made clear again in the Capital.… Read more
LAS VEGAS--Toshiba is apparently ready to show off very large and very small tablets at CES.
Though there's no other labeling on the two devices yet, they're clearly marked as 13.3-inch and 5.1-inch tablets--both are unorthodox sizes.
And both are concept Android tablets, a Toshiba spokesperson told CNET.
More later when we find out what makes them tick.
While most of the electronics world has its eyes peeled on the happenings at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Apple quietly released another version of iOS 5.1 to developers.
The software, which is the third such beta of iOS 5.1, hit Apple's developer site earlier today.
Among the changes is the addition of the 3G toggle for iPhone 4S users, a feature spotted by Macrumors, which was not present when the phone shipped. This meant users did not have the option to turn off the faster data tier to conserve battery life. While Apple never explained … Read more
BlackBerry announced its 7.1 OS today, and it's loaded with several new features and upgraded apps.
As RIM tells it in the official BlackBerry blog, the philosophy behind the new version of the operating system is to help users to discover new things and make it easier for them to share these discoveries with friends, family, and colleagues.
Admittedly, some of the features are useful, though I wonder if the new OS helps users to discover what they really want, namely the upcoming BlackBerry 10!
At the top of the list of 7.1 OS' capabilities is the ability to turn your phone into a Wi-Fi router and to share that Internet access with five other Wi-Fi devices like laptops and tablets.… Read more
LG has a number of new features in 2012--namely the upgraded Magic Motion remote, nonexistent bezels, and 3D gaming--all of which reside in the new LM8600 LCD.
As we predicted, slim bezels are in this year, and the LM8600--part of LG's Cinema Screen range--features a bezel less than 5mm thin. While some reports have it at 1mm, LG has confirmed to CNET that the edge-lit LED Cinema Screen bezels are all 5mm; a 1mm bezel is reserved for the company's OLED TV.
LG was one of the first companies other than Apple to use a one-sheet-of-glass design, and … Read more
LAS VEGAS--Stop me if you've heard this before, but the world's thinnest smartphone just made its debut at CES 2012 today, as Huawei introduced the Ascend P1S and the Ascend P1.
The Ascend P1S measures in at just 6.68mm thick, making it the slimmest dual-core smartphone in the world (for now). The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device offers a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED (960x540 pixels) touch screen with Corning Gorilla glass, a 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 Cortex A9 processor, an 8-megapixel camera with backlight illuminated sensor and 1080p HD video capture, and a … Read more
The iPad and iPhone are going quad-core, according to a report citing references in the latest iOS beta.
9to5Mac said it has evidence that Apple will bump up future iPhones (iPhone 5?) and iPads (iPad 3?) to quad-core processing. The A5 chip used in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is dual-core.
"While not quite confirming that a quad-core processor will power Apple's third-generation iPad, we have obtained evidence that suggests Apple is currently working on quad-core iOS devices," 9to5Mac said Friday.
That reference comes in the latest iOS 5.1 beta "processing-core management software," … Read more
