    CES is where things you might purchase are promised, promoted, hyped, discussed, listed, featured at parties, and traded as gossip over expense account drinks. Most of the goods are not for sale at the show. There are products already released, minor iterations of products, and products due out in some quarter of this or next year.

Over 215 health- and fitness-related exhibitors are on hand in the South Hall this year, displaying gadgets and apps that help you track calories, access your medical history, coordinate with your doctors, or set up an exercise regimen--all from a smartphone or Bluetooth-enabled device.
  • This year, PC gaming breaks free from your desktop

    Posted January 12, 2013 - 8:25 am

    CES usually doesn't yield much in the way of new and exciting gaming technology. This year is different: while big publishers like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony are still saving their announcements for the E3 gaming convention in June. We've seen a ton of intriguing new gaming technology here at CES from companies like Nvidia, Razer and Valve. As the show continues its clear that PC games are only going to become better, more accessible and easier to play whenever and wherever you want. Whether you want to run through a few rounds of Call of Duty on your Windows 8 tablet, sit down to some SimCity on your HDTV or simply stream XCOM: Enemy Unknown to a handheld the size of your smartphone, 2013 will have the tech you need to make it work.

    The Consumer Electronics Show always generates a blizzard of hype, endlessly repetitive announcements of world-changing new products and a few real gems. This year's hype/news ratio is worse than usual, but it's not always obvious why, or what real innovations got buried.

  • Intel fakes demo of graphics-star IvyBridge with video instead of 3D game

    Posted January 10, 2012 - 4:24 pm

    The newish ultrabook category of laptops -- ultralight, powerful enough to run video and video games well -- took a body blow yesterday when Intel demonstrated the Ivy Bridge CPU/GPU chip combination not with a live demo, but with a video. Why? Is there no middle to that bridge?

    Tech vendors put way, way too much effort into keeping product plans secret until they can maximize hype and sales with carefully timed announcements. So why do they suck all the interest out of cool announcements by acting offended that anyone wanted to know?
