CES 2009: Sleek Audio Custom earphones: Moulding Gallery

CES 2009: Sleek Audio Custom earphones: Moulding Gallery

If you've spent any time here at SlashGear you'll probably know that we're big fans of Sleek Audio.  We rated their SA6 in-ear monitor earphones highly, then their W-1 Kleer wireless adapter took a successful product and cut the cord.  At CES last week we stopped by the Sleek stand to check out their Customs, individually made based on silicon moulds of your ears, for a perfect fit.  At $300 they're the current pinnacle of the Sleek Audio range; after the cut, we let the company fire gunk into our ears.

CES 2009: Wilson MobilePro Cellphone Amplifier Hands-On

Your cellphone is great, and with the latest breed of smartphones you're not just making calls but messaging, surfing the net, downloading and sharing photos.  All that is dependent on catching a decent signal, however, and a weak connection adds up to call failures, poor data speeds and overall frustration.  That's why Wilson Electronics' MobilePro Cellphone Amplifier is so tempting.  Promised to reduce dropped calls, increase data rates and open up what previously were "dead spots", we picked up the MobilePro at CES this past week and have been testing it out.

Newber brings call transfers to the iPhone

Newber brings call transfers to the iPhone

Newber is a new iPhone application that allows users to transfer calls to a landline for instances such as the phone dying. This application acts as a second business line for those who really get a lot of use out of their phones.

Using GPS this application can determine the pre-programmed number that you are closest to and transfer the call to that number, or if you would like you may also choose another number from the list.

Coincidentally this application was submitted to Apple back on October 15th with no word on availability or even an approval. If you are interested in trying it out now you can head over toMynewber.com to sign up for a beta test.

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 2 2009

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 2 2009

We kicked off the week with our yearly visit to Macworld, finding a slightly subdued show floor but plenty of excitement about Apple's final keynote address at the conference.  Anticipation was high, with several new products expected to launch; instead, however, the only hardware news was a 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro.  No Mac mini update, no iPhone nano, no new iMac, and certainly no new iTouch tablet.  Phil Schiller attempted to channel some Jobsian enthusiasm over iLife '09 and iWork '09, which are certainly adept pieces of software, and the price changes for iTunes could shake up the download world a little, but it wasn't the "going out with a bang" for Macworld that many expected.

After that, it was CES 2009, and the SlashGear team decamped to Las Vegas to cover the best-known consumer electronics show on the calendar.  The impact of the recession has certainly made its mark on CES, with what looked to be a lower attendee turnout and several booth cancellations.  Headline gadgets were also fewer and further between, though there were still a few notable announcements.
