CES badges to have embedded RFID tag

I just signed up for CES 2008 today and noticed something rather interesting. It looks like the registration badges will have an embedded RFID tag. According to the website the tag won't contain any personal information, rather it will only have your ID number.

If you're paranoid about Big Brother tracking your every move at the event (that is if you're planning on attending) you do have the option of checking a box to not have one in your badge. I'm going to have one in mine, I doubt that we'll actually even notice that anything is going on with it, as it's just going to track overall info for the show management.

Rock Band is shaping up to be one of the best games I've seen in a long while. Harmonix has really gone all-out with not only the instruments that you get to play, but also on the songs you'll be able to rock. We can officially add Nirvana to the list of bands that we'll be seeing.

The Guild – I think most WoW players can relate

I've spent my fair share of time glued to my computer playing World of Warcraft. I've since kicked the habit, much to my friends' dismay. Granted, I still get on now and then and do a few runs with my guild, but not very often.

Correction – Cisco won’t be killing off Linksys name

Apparently a story that we reported on earlier today was not entirely correct. In fact, it was completely inaccurate. We reported earlier that Cisco was planning on ditching the Linksys name in favor of using the Cisco name on all of their products.

GripGlider provides relief for those with aching wrists

I spend much of my waking day on the computer, not a big surprise since I write for a tech blog.

High Score 100 Transformer turns into PlayStation controller

I'm sure that plenty of you have at least one Transformer stashed away in your house somewhere. Personally, I have an old 1990's Optimus Prime around here somewhere. Wouldn't it be cool to have one that turned into a PlayStation controller?

DeLorean cars to be put back into production

I highly doubt that any of you can honestly say that you've never seen any of the Back To the Future movies. I was born only a year before they came out, and I've seen them more times than I can count. Obviously, the first thing that everyone thinks of when someone mentions them is the DeLorean that was used as the time machine.

Unfortunately, not long after the movie became a blockbuster hit, the company went belly-up, and production of the car was halted. John DeLorean always wanted to be able to put the car back in production, but his effort was not realized during his lifetime, as he passed away in 2005. His dream however, will be brought to life.

Aside from its picture taking capabilities, it makes good use of the touchscreen in other ways as well. Obviously it can be used as a photo viewer, but the added functions of MP3 player and PMP are nice too.
