The one CES Apple might not win

The one CES Apple might not win

In just a few days we begin again with the year's biggest US-based technology conference: CES 2015. Over the past several years, it's been almost a tradition for news outlets to suggest that Apple was either alive and well at CES or in some way or another "winning" the crowd over without actually, physically being at the event series to represent themselves. As far as we know. This year is a little different. This year is the first in which Apple has a new product announced before CES but won't be releasing it until later this year.

Sony’s e-paper FES Watch was hiding in plain sight

Sony's e-paper watch plan rumors sounded mysterious when they surfaced recently, but it turns out we'd actually seen the face-changing, power-sipping timepiece before, only under a different name. In fact, the distinctive timepiece - which uses e-paper not only for the watchface itself, but around the strap itself - was quietly launched on a crowdfunding site as the Fashion Entertainments FES Watch, a brand which Sony has now confirmed was set up by the skunkworks team at the company looking into the broader practical applications of screens more commonly found on e-readers like the Kindle.
