CES 2009: Creative Zii ‘Stemcell Computing’

Creative have been demonstrating their new Zii platform this week at CES, catchily titled "Stemcell Computing", which is promising a huge shift in how multimedia is handled by mobile devices.  Zii comprises a number of scalable Processing Elements, or PEs, each of which can be individually re-tasked to different tasks.  In that way, rather than a device having a set amount of video decoding, encoding or high-definition processing capability, it can selectively assign generic PEs to whatever the task at hand.

Creative Fatal1ty X-Fi USB Headset

I remember back in the day when the name Fatal1ty was just first being heard around the internets. This was some kid that was making a real name for himself in the professional gaming world by dominating in Quake III Arena, and going on to win (or place very well) in dozens of professional tournaments.
