Vizio PC lineup 2013 refresh hands-on: it’s time for touch

Vizio's new Windows 8 Tablet PC was definitely one of the devices that caught our interest during CES 2013, but the company isn't content with stopping at just tablets. In fact, Vizio seems to have become very enthusiastic about Windows 8, introducing new lines of touch-based notebooks and all-in-one PCs that are ready to take full advantage of the operating system. We got to spend a little bit of time with them when we stopped by for a visit with Vizio, and starting right off, we have to say that we like what the company was showing off.

CES 2013 wrap-up: Gaming gets the spotlight

CES 2013 wrap-up: Gaming gets the spotlight

We're used to CES being all about gadgets and technology in general, but this year, there were actually a surprising number of major gaming announcements. NVIDIA positioned itself front and center, leading the charge and talking about a number of new products and services that are bound to get any gamer bouncing up and down with glee. Perhaps the biggest reveal NVIDIA's press conference held was the reveal of Project SHIELD, a new Android-based games console that's packing the company's latest mobile processor, the Tegra 4.

Pentax MX-1 digital camera hands-on: advanced compact in a retro body

This week we got the opportunity to take a peek at a hero device from none other than camera manufacturers Pentax, their MX-1 showing itself to be quite the looker for the 2013 Summer season. This machine is the very first advanced compact camera the company has ever presented, here showing a 12-megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom, and a solid body with a classic look. This camera also comes with a 3-inch tilting display that'll allow you to hold your unit above or below, the display pointing out at your face from any forward angle.

CES 2013 wrap-up: All about Android

CES 2013 wrap-up: All about Android

While the biggest story of CES 2013 may have been Ultra HD, Android was still a huge part of the show, and it showed up on a handful of new devices that were unveiled this past week. Nobody can deny the impact that Android has had in the technology industry, as well as in tech culture, throughout that past several years. We ended up getting a ton of hands-on time with a number of new Android-powered devices, one of the most-popular being the IdeaPhone K900 from Lenovo, and we ended up talking with Lenovo's Mark Pinner about the new device.

Vizio 11.6-inch Windows 8 Tablet PC hands-on

Vizio had a lot of cool things to show off at CES 2013, but one of the most exciting is its new 11.6-inch Windows 8 tablet. The tablet doesn't have a name yet, but the specifications speak for themselves. First off (and perhaps most importantly to some) is the fact that this tablet is running Windows 8 rather than Windows RT, which is great news for those who want the full Windows functionality on a slate.

Pelican offers protection for Galaxy S III with two new cases

Pelican offers protection for Galaxy S III with two new cases

Amid the chaos of CES 2013, we discovered that Pelican is plotting to enter the mobile case business. The company was showing off cases for the iPhone 5 and iPad, but it also had two cases for the Samsung Galaxy S III on hand and ready to show off. The cases we saw for the Galaxy S III were certainly impressive, and if you find other protective cases a bit too bulky, you might want to give these a look.

CES 2013 wrap-up: PCs and Windows 8

CES 2013 wrap-up: PCs and Windows 8

This year at CES we saw one whole heck of a lot of PCs, quite a few of them working with Windows 8 - but most of them focusing on their unique hardware offerings to the point where Microsoft's offering seemed almost secondary. One cannot deny the influence of the touch-friendly nature of Windows 8 on the other hand, and starting right away with the very first PC we had hands-on time with, touchscreen controls were right at the center of our attention: the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC is first on our list of hands-on deliveries.

Moen MotionSense Touch-Free Faucet hands-on

This week we got the opportunity to take a peek at the newest Moen water distribution system for your sink, the MotionSense Touch-Free faucet. Moen's own Maribeth Kwasniewski showed this system off with us at ShowStoppers during CES 2013, revealing the multiple ways you're able to activate it when you get it for yourself in the very near future. The first of these is the Wave Sensor - that black dot at the top of the neck of the faucet, able to toggle the water's flow when you move your hand over or across it.

Goodbye CES 2013: It’s been fun!

Goodbye CES 2013: It’s been fun!

This year at CES 2013 we took on the full gamut, everything from ultra HD televisions to smartphone cases, and all things good in-between. While we'll be presenting several CES wrap-up posts for you over the next few days so you can get caught up in a collection of nutshells, we'd like to take the opportunity here to say thank you to all of the individuals, companies, and institutions that helped us make it easy to present all the newest innovations to you, the readers.

The Irrelevance of Ultra HD

The Irrelevance of Ultra HD

CES is about the future of consumer electronics; I get that. We go to see what's going to make our eyes light up later in the year. But take a glance at our CES 2013 Hub and it's clear that Ultra HD was the tech most of the big companies were pushing, and it's arguably the most irrelevant theme to the electronics industry - for the near future, at least - we've seen in some years. Not since the very earliest days of 3D have we seen a segment so desperate to validate its own existence, and failing so miserably.
