This week, we will be attending our seventh CES down in Las Vegas, NV, and each year, we are asked what we’re taking with us and what advice we have for first time attendees. Well, this post should deliver all of the intel you desire. (more…)
Not only will LG show off a levitating Bluetooth speaker at CES, the Korean electronics giant also has new TONE audio products on the way. The two new TONE options are the TONE Studio and TONE Free, both of which offer their own unique take on the collar audio trend that LG seems to be fully invested in. (more…)
Since CES was last week, and we almost always have a blast that needs to be shared, we figured even if this is about 5 days late, it’s time for a CES recap show from Tim and I. Look, we know that CES is 99.9% boring from an Android standpoint these days, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other tech stories to share, our personal experience stories to share, and all that jazz.
Today, we’re doing our special CES 2016 show where we’ll talk about Binge On drama (it started at CES!), Motorola branding news, all the VR happenings (because we tried a lot of it), the new wave of smartwatches, what we did for our annual CES dinner, if we ran into any random celebrities (sorry, no Dennis Rodman this year), and more.
Join us at 1PM Pacific (4PM Eastern) for the fun. And no, this doesn’t count as episode 100.

Lenovo will be the company name on Motorola phones in the very near future, according to Motorola COO Rick Osterloh, who spoke with CNET here at CES.

Not to be confused with a smartwatch, but rather a watch that is smart, Razer announced the Nabu Watch at CES in Las Vegas this week. Available later this month starting at $149 through Razer’s retail channels, the Nabu Watch focuses heavily on fitness, as well as simple notifications while linked up to your smartphone. (more…)
New Balance is ready to get into the age of digital sport, tracking, and community. Through an announcement at CES, New Balance states that it is opening up the New Balance Digital Sport division “dedicated exclusively to connecting consumers with the technology they desire to improve their athletic performance.” The first product from this new division will be an Android Wear smartwatch designed “for runners by runners.” (more…)
Looking for big Android news at this year’s CES? You won’t find any. What we are seeing are previously announced Android or wearable related products being given new life with new colors and finishes and price tags. For example, here we have the Samsung Gear S2 Classic in two new finishes of 18K rose gold and platinum. (more…)
Created with a feminine flair “for ladies,” the Jewel and Elegant feature slimmer bands, sparklier curved cases with rose gold, and new watch faces, along with the premium specs of the original Huawei Watch. Nothing else is all that different from the original, so really, just think of these as slimmer and trimmer alternatives to the more masculine model. Well, and don’t forget that the Jewel has actual Swarovski crystals in it. Boom. (more…)
