Pure Jongo hands-on: Sonos on a budget

Pure Jongo hands-on: Sonos on a budget

Pure is on a mission, and that's to steal the streaming music crown from industry heavyweights Sonos. The strategy to do that is make Pure Jongo cheap, undercutting Sonos' premium price tag with a range of affordable wireless speakers and WiFi music adapters at up to a third of the price of a Sonos box. And, just as you'd expect, there's on-demand playlists and internet radio from iPad, iPhone, and Android remote control apps.

Powerbag Business Class Pack review

Powerbag Business Class Pack review

During this last week at CES 2012, an absolute massacre of running, typing, snatching quick snacks, tripping over wires, smashing into walls, and most importantly, transferring electronics in and out of my rucksack of choice, I've got to say one thing about the Powerbag Business Class Pack: I've never seen another backpack keep all the pieces separate and organized the way this one does so very successfully. It's almost like the fact that this sack has a rechargeable battery in the bottom of it is a bonus feature, that's how much I've enjoyed using it to tote my devices through Las Vegas. The 6,000 mAh battery certainly does add frosting to the cake, also, when it comes down to it.

ASUS Rampage IV Formula and Gene hands-on

ASUS Rampage IV Formula and Gene hands-on

The desktop market is a little quiet as of late, but there will always be room for hardcore PC gamers, and those who are more than willing to relieve them of their excess cash. To that end, Asus showed off two new high-end motherboards in its Republic of Gamers line at CES 2012, both of which use Intel's X79 chipset. We got some hands-on time with the Rampage IV Formula and the Rampage IV Gene in a meeting with Asus, and came away impressed.

HyperJuice External Battery for MacBook 2012 Lineup hands-on

If you're listening to HyperJuice in any one of their many outlets for advertisement, you'll know that they are, indeed, the only external battery for the MacBook, working for any laptop in the Apple line, branded and shaped as such as well.

This group has one excellent value proposition for those of you out there in the field relying on the power of your MacBook with worries of a lack of battery hours and a need for a fashionable tote-along that matches the goods.

My CES 2012

My CES 2012

There's no larger an event the entire year round for tech bloggers such as I, and at the moment, there's no bigger trade show for Consumer Electronics than CES - this being my first full year attending the events inside and surrounding CES 2012, I thought I'd give you a bit of a look inside what it means to be on the publisher's side of this monster storm of keynotes, meetings, and floor time. Now that the week is over, I've got a couple of moments to sit on the couch and attempt to put down everything that happened (viewable through our [CES LIVE Portal]) without having a heart attack over the sleep I've lost, and I'd like for you to snoop in on the situation from this perspective. Once you've read what I've got to say here, please feel free to ask any questions you might have as well.

Lenovo S2 hands-on

Lenovo S2 hands-on

A surprising amount of fabulous devices were shown this past week by Lenovo to the hordes of press looking to snap shots and take video of the latest and the greatest from the manufacturer as they ran Android for mobile and Windows for both mobile and laptop stations - what the Lenovo S2 represents is the Android world. What Lenovo's got here is another chance for you to take advantage of their unique user interface not unlike what we've also just seen on the world's first Android running an Intel Medfield chip, the Racer-A, aka the K800. This device here, the L2, represents a budget smartphone running that same Android user interface.

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

We've seen this device before, it having been on display early last year at Mobile World Congress 2011, but it being here at Pepcom during CES 2012 is more than a little telling for a device that was supposed to be a hit with Windows users throughout most of last year. When it comes to convertible tablets, your humble narrator's favorite device is the Transformer Prime, not least of all because it's able to fold down and be a laptop whenever you decide you want to transport it in such a way, not to mention the fact that it's got a fully functional trackpad to make it a high-class convertible in every aspect of the word - so why is it selling off the shelves while the Iconia Tab W500 remains one of the loneliest tablets in Acer's line of otherwise amazing hardware?

Telenav Scout GPS in-car display integration hands-on

Telenav Scout GPS in-car display integration hands-on

At Pepcom during CES 2012 we got the opportunity to hop into a vehicle containing a 7-inch display that would, when connected with Telenav's technology, be able to run all the navigation and service-finding awesomeness we've come to expect from the GPS navigation group. What we got to see what just that, an Android device not only mirroring itself to the display, but displaying a whole different interface made specifically for the 7-inch form factor, it showing maps, favorite places, traffic information, information about the current status of your car, and more. Have a peek as the demonstration speeds its way through downtown Las Vegas.
