As the world of digital photography gets more and more complex and the megapixel capability gets higher and higher, this also means you need more storage space on your digital camera. Because high resolution images are nice and all, but not if you can only fit one of them on the camera! That's why Digital Foci will be showing off their Picture Porter 35 photo manager at CES this week.
We kicked off the week with a review of HP's MediaSmart EX487 Home Server, but after that brief dalliance with Microsoft it was Apple that caught most of the headlines. Much of it is rumor, of course, about what will launch at Macworld next week - A new unibody 17-inch MacBook Pro with integrated battery? A new Mac mini? An iPod touch HD tablet? - but the Dev Team gave us something more concrete with the release of yellowsn0w. If you've been waiting to unlock your iPhone 3G, now's your chance.
Macworld is just around the corner, and so is CES 2009 . You'll not be surprised to hear, then, that the SlashGear team is getting ready to attend both events, bringing you the latest news and the most interesting updates. Firstly we'll be liveblogging Apple's final keynote presentation at Macworld on Tuesday January 6th, kicking off 9am PST at http://live.slashgear.com. Then our CES 2009 coverage begins, starting with press previews on Tuesday and running through to the weekend.

Ahead of their CES 2009 appearance, more details of the Viliv range from Yukyung Technologies have been emerging. The S5 MID, which has been promised for early 2009 and boasts 1080p HD-capabilities, integrated 3G and a 4.8-inch touchscreen, has been demonstrating its "cube" GUI, an in-house development intended to make a desktop OS (like Windows XP) more finger- and stylus-friendly on the move. Also, confirmation of further Viliv devices have been revealed.
