CEDIA 2007 – Cuddle Bags look comfortable

I remember when I was younger, my favorite seat in the house was my trusty beanbag. If I could just lounge in that all day and play my Nintendo, I was set. Now I'm what some people might call a “responsible adult”and I no longer have a beanbag, as one might think it was tacky. However, if you long to have a beanbag that doesn't look like one, you should check out these Cuddle Bags.

CEDIA 2007 – Meridian Audio Limited Ferrari F80 isn’t a car

CEDIA 2007 – Meridian Audio Limited Ferrari F80 isn’t a car

The Meridian F80 is as portable of a version of audio Mecca as you will likely see this year. Just this thing’s appearance is a work of art worthy of the Ferrari name created by Enzo Anselmo Ferrari.

Let’s start with what’s built into the device, first there is the CD/DVD player. That’s right, not only does it play music, but if you hook it up to a video display it will play DVDs. Then there are the radios, AM/FM, those are kind of standard, but there is also DAB radio.

CEDIA 2007 – Pioneer launch flagship Elite Amplifier

"Talk about an impressive ass!"  That was my first thought on seeing Pioneer's new Elite SC-09TX flagship amp, which has a rear-panel positively bristling with connectivity.  Things round the front are no less exciting, however; there's a huge LCD as the centrepiece, which is all the more necessary when you consider that not only will the Elite work as your surround sound amp (pumping 200W out of seven channels simultaneously) but access media on a connected iPod and any networked PC.

CEDIA 2007 – Toshiba shrink REGZA LCD TV bezel to just .9-inch

If you're going to hang an LCD TV on your wall, you want it to be all picture and no periphery. That's why Toshiba have been busy beavers and gradually working on shrinking down the bezel on their HD REGZA range, down to the point that they're the world's thinnest. And we really are talking thin - the 46-inch model has a mere 0.9-inch surround - which means you can can fit their 40-inch model into the space a 37-inch competitor would demand.

CEDIA 2007 – Maxtor OneTouch 4 external storage syncs multiple computers

Perhaps I'm just not suffused with the CEDIA spirit, but Maxtor's OneTouch 4 external hard-drive range just doesn't look as "vault-like" as they'd have us believe it's been designed to resemble.  Still, that's pretty much the only criticism I can fling at the backup/sync range so far - from the spec list, at least, they seem to have cornered the market for secure storage with more options than you can shake a stick at.
