The Consumer Electronic Show ended last week in Las Vegas and we heard a lot about new tablets, phones, and a plethora of cool gadgetries. What about home appliances? Last year, appliances were getting “smart” while this year they are getting “smarter” with high-tech and WiFi. So, when you look for your next refrigerator, will you looking for the one that has a Twitter application?

CES 2013 Wrap Up: Is this the year for 4K?

by Blogger on ‎01-14-2013 08:31 AM - last edited on ‎05-16-2013 11:42 AM by JorgeM Recognized Expert


Samsung has just announced that their 85" 4K panel will run over $30k, with pre-orders starting in Korea. 4K, or Ultra HD (not to be confused with Netflix's new Super HD service) was one of the big stories. So the question is: will this be the year for 4K.


CES 2013: CaseMate is classing things right up.

It’s always interesting to see when a brand shifts gears. Mad Catz did it a few years ago, pledging that they were going to turn over a new leaf, and work harder to make better quality products. They delivered on it too. 


CaseMast has done the same thing. They’ve got a sexy new logo and some elegant new styling. Pledging to create more upscale products, they’re catering to a premium audience.



Shattering your device, whether it’s a tablet or a phone, can be heartbreaking. That’s why Gorilla Glass has been so popular; it does a great job preventing cracks and scratches in screens.


CES 2013: Fujifilm does fashion!

by Blogger on ‎01-14-2013 08:31 AM


The Fujifilm X-series of cameras is svelte and sexy. I’ve mentioned before how much I love them and think they’re great cameras. The new X20, shown off at CES, really captured my eye with classic lines and powerful performance.

LifeProof cases are pretty famous for being almost everything-proof. They’re military-spec approved from impact, cold, heat, water, dirt, and so on. That’s why it was so cool to see the Fre case for iPhone 5 put to the test. 



CES 2013: 3D Printing

Future Shop has been a great place to buy printers since the start of desktop publishing. They’ve had every major model of popular printer from Canon, Epson, Lexmark, and Brother. And while printing is going to continue to be an important part of what we all do with computing, it’s time to take it to the next dimension. Literally. It’s time for Future Shop to start carrying 3D printers.

Withings Wi-Fi Body Analyzer.jpg


Withings will be coming out with a new smart scale that will measure not only your weight and body mass index, but also your heart rate and the carbon dioxide (CO2) inside your bedroom to help you better understand why you may have trouble sleeping. The data is shared with a free iOS or Android app, as well as other third-party fitness apps, over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to give you a snapshot of how you’re doing and what it means.


CES 2013: Sennheiser Momentum headphones going red and black

Like SMS Audio in the post below, we’ve got another cosmetic change for a pair of headphones — Sennheiser’s Momentum. Future Shop carries the original brown model that came out last year, but Sennheiser will be releasing a black model with a red cable within a few months, I was told. There’s nothing different under the hood, so the sound will be the same, and the $399.99 price tag will likely be, too.


CES 2013: Geonaute’s action camera can capture all your moves at 360-degrees

Geonaute, a company based in France, was showing off its new POV action camera on the show floor, and it may be one of the more intriguing gadgets to come out this year. It has three lenses that capture everything from a 360-degree angle, and you can choose which direction you want to view as you’re watching it later on an iPad or big screen TV.


CES 2013: Razer’s Edge is a tablet purely for gaming

Tablets and gaming should go hand-in-hand and Razer will be coming out with a gaming tablet that should be an interesting proposition for any gamer. Fusing together elements of a tablet, PC and game console, the Edge is basically the tablet equivalent of what a gaming PC is.


CES 2013: LEGO smartphone cases coming to Canada this year

LEGO iPhone cases.jpg


At Belkin’s booth today, I came across a nice surprise. It looks like the company will be announcing a partnership with LEGO to make cases for the iPhone, iPod Touch and select Android devices. Details are still being worked out, but a summer launch in Canada has been all but confirmed. Just how many cases and for which exact phones is unknown at this time, but the iPhone 5 looks like it’s a lock. It’s even possible to connect LEGO pieces to the cases, so this could be a more functional case than most others. Stay tuned for news on this later into the spring.
