If you are a major follower of anything related to technology then you should know about CES (Consumer Electronics Show) coming up in the next couple days. The show will start on Thursday and run until Sunday the 9th. Over this time period, over 2,500 companies will be showing over 20,000 new products that will be either announced, shown or released. Out of these 20,000 many will be tablets or tablet related products. Hence, why people are calling 2011 “the year of the tablet”.
In the past years, the show has been the birth of Blue-ray, DVDs, HD televisions, 3-D televisions, and even all the way back to Atari’s game “Pong”. Knowing all of this, the show promises this year’s to be bigger and better. Well, it is definatly bigger. There is an 11% increase in size from last year making the show cover about 1.6 million square feet!
But anyways, as stated earlier, this show seems to be mainly focused on the tablet as many companies are joining the competition such as Toshiba, Motorola, and Acer. There will be over 80 tablet computer put on display at the show so obviously there is a lot to look forward to.
That’s it for now, in a couple days there will most likely be a ton of blogs posted because of the massive amounts of new products being released so subscribe to this blog or just keep checking back because it will be a very exciting week!
That’s right, as leaks have recently shown, programmers in Silicon Valley are finalizing Google’s newest product, the Google TV.
The company says that this will be no ordinary television. And I would have to agree with them. I mean, not many TV’s offer you to not only watch TV, but to access the internet, interact on facebook and twitter, playing online games and listening to music.
With the click of a few buttons on the remote, a user can switch between TV channels, websites, online video, and traditional shows recorded on DVR. Besides all of this, you will also be able to bookmark your favorite applications, websites and, get this, television channels!
The device will be available to the public later this month that can be attached to an existing TV or a built in feature for Blu-Ray DVD players.
The Google TV already has a competition, the Apple TV, but to me the Google TV looks a lot better. Which one looks better to you?
