SwingTIP lets your golf club and iPhone join forces to improve your swing

Proving yet again that there's pretty much nothing that can't be made to work with an iOS device, a product called SwingTIP, on display at CES 2013, creates a link between your golf club and your iPhone or iPad. The lightweight sensor (US$129.99) connects to your device via Bluetooth and sends detailed data on every swing to a companion app, with the goal of showing you what you're doing wrong and offering suggestions on how to improve your game. Hopefully they're more helpful than some we've received over the years. In addition to working with its companion app, the data produced by the SwingTIP can be uploaded to a website and used to create scorecards. These can be shared with your golf

Gigabyte announces support for Intel Collage in Z77 motherboards, invites you to make a DIY 4K display

Running a PC with a Gigabyte motherboard, dual Thunderbolt ports and four monitors? You might want to consider revising that NVIDIA Surround setup into makeshift 4k display. Gigabyte has announced that it will soon be issuing updates for its Z77 motherboards to include support for Intel Collage technology, allowing users to split a 4k video signal between four HD monitors. Not a bad trick, considering the cost of native 4K displays. Intel's Co

MakerBot Replicator 2X eyes-on

You might remember that way back in September Makerbot took the wraps off its next generation of Replicators. Sadly, when the company invited us out for a sneak peak, the cutting edge Replicator 2X was no where to be seen. Thankfully Bre Pettis decided to swing through CES with the dual-extruding, ABS optimized version of its 3D printer in tow. Aesthetically there's not much different about the 2X -- it's the same black body and a Stepstrudder t

Dish Network makes an offer to buy Clearwire, even though Sprint was already buying Clearwire

Surprise news this afternoon as Clearwire announced it's received an acquisition offer from Dish Network, even though Sprint was already on the hook to snap up the company for $2.2 billion. According to the press release, a special committee of the Clearwire Board of Director's has decided to negotiate with dish based on its proposal, although it has not changed its recommendation of the current Sprint transaction. Predictably, Sprint is not taking the news well, producing a series of bullet points about why Clearwire can't and shouldn't sell to Dish.Continue reading Dish Networ

Apple rejects iOS game about Syrian civil war

Apple is like a security guard, wandering the halls of the App Store with a ban hammer that it uses liberally on apps that don't meet its strict guidelines. As reported by io9, the latest app to fall under its scrutiny is an iOS game from Auroch Digital called Endgame:Syria. According to GameTheNews, Endgame:Syria is an interactive simulation based on the Syrian Civil War. Players take a role in the conflict and can change the outcome of the war based on the military strategy they choose. The developers say Endgame:Syria is a "novel way to inform the public" about the conflict, but Apple disagreed and reje

Hands-on with Archos' two iPad lookalike tablets, the Archos Platinum 97 and 80

What to make of two Archos-branded tablets that look almost exactly like Apple's ubiquitous iPad and iPad Mini? We weren't quite sure, honestly, but after spending some brief time with both Archos' Platinum 97 and 80, it's easy to understand why Archos went with that look -- the two Android tablets are beautiful, simple, and sleek. But looks only go so far, and when we actually spent some time using the device, we were a bit less impressed. While the 9.7 and 8-inch IPS touchscreens are perfectly serviceable,

Motorola petitions ITC to keep Apple complaint going

Late on Monday, Motorola Mobility filed a petition hoping to keep a complaint against Apple with the US International Trade Commission alive, says FOSS Patents. Earlier, an administrative law judge had ruled that a patent covering the deactivation of a touchscreen when lifting a phone to the ear was invalid, due to an existing Motorola patent making it non-novel. On remand, though, Judge Thomas Pender said there was indeed an infringement by Apple, and ruled that the ITC's domestic industry requirement had been met. If Motorola can convince the ITC to reject the earlier invalidation, it may

AT&T hints at best-ever iPhone sales in holiday 2012 quarter

Today AT&T announced that it sold 10 million smartphones during the fourth quarter of 2012, beating the 2011 record of 9.4 million units. Based on knowledge of what percentage of those sales numbers have been iPhones in previous quarters, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is forecasting that AT&T sold 8.1 million iPhones during the last quarter. That's in line with AT&T's comments that it sold a record number of iPhones in the quarter. During the 2011 holiday quarter, the carrier sold 7.6 million iPhones. With that quantity of iPhones being sold by AT&T alone, Munster believes that Apple will announce sales of 45 million devices in the quarter during its

Imagination Technologies' PowerVR Series 6 mobile GPU debuts at CES, we go eyes-on

Last week, Imagination Technologies gave us a glimpse of its next-gen PowerVR Series 6 mobile GPU and its prowess with OpenGL ES 3.0. That demo didn't showcase Series 6's full potential, as the company could only let us see a test chip on an FPGA board that could deliver only 1 GB/s of bandwidth -- one tenth of the GPUs performance capability. Now that Imagination Technologies' first Series 6 partner, LG, has given the go ahead, the time has come to see what Series 6 can really do on an optimized board destined for an HDTV.

PowerMonkey keeps your iPhone charged off the beaten path

Over the holidays I tried out several external battery packs for the iPhone. One of my more favorite ones is the Powermonkey Discovery. Made by Powertraveler, the Powermonkey discovery is a slim and light battery pack weighing a slight 107 grams and just 46 x 13 x 114mm in size. Inside you'll find a 3500mAh lithium polymer battery. The battery is enough to charge an iPhone two times when the Powermonkey is fully juiced. The external casing of the Powermonkey is what really (ahem) shines, though. It's made of a polished aluminum that almost looks like a silver bar you'd find on a pirate ship. The unit has six LED lights at the top. When all are lit green, the Powerm

Primarily known these days for its shock- and drop-resistant iPhone cases, OtterBox offers options for most of Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and iPod devices, with designs that range from truly waterproof to less substantially protective. Made solely from rubber and plastic, its cases are generally sold at a premium relative to other brands, and rivals have aggressively targeted its products in recent years with smaller, lighter alternatives.

CES 2013: iMusic BodyRhythm wants to pummel your shoulders via touch input

There's always a few wacky things here at CES, and at Pepcom's annual CES sideshow I stumbled upon the iMusic BodyRhythm. It looks a bit like a life jacket, but can be controlled by your iOS device via a special app. What does it do? It "massages" your shoulders via a series of tiny taps. Frankly, it wasn't the most relaxing massage I've had, as it felt more like Smurf paratroopers landing on my shoulders at strategic points, and then jumping around with clogs on. Still, the high-end leather and novelty of the product will mean the company intends to sell more to high-end customers in Asia than your average Apple Store customer in t

Bang & Olufsen launches BeoLab 15 in-wall speakers for stealthier beats

Most Bang & Olufsen audio systems' designs virtually beg for attention in the living room. The company's just-launched combo of two BeoLab 15 satellite speakers, a BeoLab 16 subwoofer and an Amplifier 1 is very nearly designed for the opposite. The entire array can hide in the walls or ceiling, and juts out only when it's tilting to direct sound to a specific area. The Amplifier 1's 195W of total output won't produce the most thundering sound, but this is one time when subtlety is arguably the greater value -- i

NHTSA details new sound requirements for hybrids and EVs travelling under 18 mph

It's a requirement that many such vehicles will already meet, but the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has now detailed just what sort of sounds all hybrids and EVs will have to make when they're travelling at speeds under 18 miles per hour. Namely, they'll have to make a sound that's loud enough to be heard over ambient city noise, that changes to match the vehicle's speed, and that also remains audible as the vehicle is idling. The agency isn't requiring any one specific sound, however, and says that automakers will have a "significant range of choices" available to them -- they will be required to use the same set of sounds for each vehicle of the same make and model, thoug

Faulty iPhone reportedly generated £19,000 bill

According to a report by the BBC, a faulty iPhone is to blame for a £19,000 (US$30,000) bill sent to UK resident Chris Bovis over the holiday season. Bovis claims Orange sent him the whopping bill for his usage during the months of October and November. Bovis said his regular bill is "about £43 a month." He brought his iPhone 4S to the Apple store at Lakeside Shopping Centre, and store employees supposedly confirmed the iPhone was the cause of this excessive data use. Mr Bovis contacted Orange with this information and the carrier allegedly wanted him to pay £400 ($640) while they investigated his claim. Bovis, who also

Spotted: Samsung shows off a white Series 9 Ultrabook with a different finish, we prefer the old version

Welcome to "Laptop Porn," an exciting series hosted by that lady who reviews notebooks sometimes. Here at CES 2013, Samsung is showing off a white version of its 13-inch Series 9 Ultrabook -- the same second-gen model that's been shipping since last year. What's interesting is that although this has the same magnesium-alloy frame as all the other Series 9 laptops, the finish feels different: it's smoother, and warmer to the touch. It feels so different, in fact, that we initially thought it was some sort of watered-down plastic version meant to be

By now, you should be familiar with all the Windows 8 options flooding the market and here on the CES 2013 showfloor, LG's showing off its latest Ultrabook entry: the Z360. The thin and light device measures just 13.6mm and weighs in at 1.15kg making it easily openable with just one finger. Of course, since the Z360's 13.3-inch 1080p IPS panel doesn't support touch input, there's an array of dedicated "Metro" hot keys along the left edge of the keyboard. Inside, you're getting a 4th-generation Intel Core i5 processor (alternate Core i3 and i7 configurations are also possible) which allows for the device to cold boot in just eight seconds.

Infotainment platforms are a dime a dozen these days, but Garmin's K2 "glass cockpit" is definitely one system that you're going to want to take seriously. You'll be interacting with a 10.4-inch capacitive touch screen, which is positioned front and center, while a squat 12-inch digital gauge and information readout console is fixed just behind the steering wheel. The system pulls its realtime data from Garmin's servers through your connected smartphone, or, if vehicle manufact

iPad would be America's 11th largest tech company

The iPad dominates in the tablet market, and according to Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi, the tablet raked in US$32 billion in sales last year. As noted by Fortune 2.0, the iPad is so successful that it would rank as the 11th largest tech company in the US, if Apple spun off the iPad into its own company. The iPad as a company would even make it into the Fortune 500, climbing to the 98th spot above #107 McDonalds and #136 Nike. Sacconaghi believes the iPad will continue to grow over the next few years with sales as high as $46 billion in 2013. Sales will start to slow in 2015 and beyond because of market saturation. By then, everyone and their brother will have an

An early look at Intel's 'Lexington' platform: Atom, tailored for emerging markets

Good morning, kids! We're here at Intel's CES booth, where the company is showing off a low-end reference smartphone running the Atom Z2420 processor, which is part of the new "Lexington" family of chips tailored for emerging markets. We learned yesterday that three manufactures are on board, with Acer being the biggest name. Curiously, though, the handset we just found is completely unmarked, and Intel won't say who makes it. It also won't share any specs other than the processor, though we already know what the platform is capable of: up to 1.2GHz of clock speed, 1080p video at 30 fps, HSPA+ connectivity and, support for dual 5MP / 1.3MP cameras.

Seagate announces new wireless hard drive

Seagate has announced the upcoming launch of a new wireless hard drive that offers 1 TB of storage.

Because of this, data can be streamed from the drive directly to another device without the need for any sort of actual internet connection. A 10-hour battery is also built directly into the device, and an included USB 3.0 adapter lets users quickly transfer content between the drive and a computer.

Delphi / Verizon's Vehicle Diagnostics hands-on (video)

We first caught wind of Delphi and Verizon's new Vehicle Diagnostics service a couple of days back. Today we got to see the thing in action at the Pepcom event here at CES. The hardware is a small black plastic box that should plug into most cars sold in the US after 1996. Once inserted, it communicates wireless with your Android or iOS handset or tablet. The Delphi rep we spoke with started things off by pointing out that it does more than just the diagnostics implied by its name -- and that's certainly the case. There's a long laundry list of functionality here. He certainly had a lot to talk about.

Hands-on with Xi3's 'Piston' modular PC at CES

Remember when Xi3 announced a Kickstarter project for its modular computers late last year? Well, those machines are here today at CES, thanks in no part to some lofty backing from Valve. We got a first look at its latest mini-PC, code-named Piston, tonight -- and though a more comprehensive demo is to come, we walked away with some impressions nonetheless. Of course, Valve wouldn't back this system if it didn't have some serious graphics chops. It's optimized to run Steam -- and specifically big-picture mode -- and to that end it packs a quad-core chip. Most specs remain vague, though the Piston apparently offers up to 1TB of storage.

Snappgrip is a case that turns your iPhone into a point-and-shoot camera -- partly for kitsch's sake, but mostly to make one-handed shots easier to pull off. The design is simple: it's just a plastic shell with a shutter button, a dial for controlling shutter speed and a hand grip -- the sort you'd normally find on a compact camera. To use it, you'll need to download the free iPhone or Android app. Interestingly, though, the company is releasing its SDK to developers, so in theory you'll one day be able to use this case with other camera apps.

iSmartAlarm is a home security alarm, but not the kind that uses a shrill sound to send burglars scrambling. The alarm system, currently a project on Indiegogo, is a $79 WiFi camera that sends alerts to a corresponding iPhone app. Essentially, when the camera detects someone in the home, it will send a notice to your phone in the form of a text, email or phone call. The camera itself has a series of LED lights around the lens, so it will still work even if you've turned off all the lights. Once you do get an alert you can dig into the app itself, where you can see a screenshot of the potential culprit, and choose to either ignore the alert or dial 911.

This seven-incher features a rugged rubberized design -- in fact the company didn't flinch when we dropped it twice during the video hands-on that you'll find after the break. The buttons are big and easy to press, and tablet looks fairly easy to clean after the inevitable PB&J smears. The screen leave a bit to be desired, we'll say that, but that's probably to be expected from a $150 kids tablet. The device runs Android 4.0, featuring a Polaroid skin that looks a bit like Microsoft tiles -- again, probably a good thing fo

Fisher Price Create and Learn Case hands-on

When you think high-tech, you don't necessarily think kids. But as any parent who owns an iPad can tell you, that tablet is fast-becoming a pricey toy (or distraction). Which is why Fisher Price has crafted the Create and Learn Case which, itself, is no great slice of cutting edge tech. In fact, it's a rather dumb case, seeing as how it merely offers a kid-friendly holster for that iPad. Download the company's free companion app and you have a recreational learning tool for children that separates its programs across three categories: create, learn and explore. Those first two offer different activities encompassing free

Polaroid's interchangeable lens cameras hands-on (video)

Interchangeable lens cameras from Polaroid? Yep. They're here at CES, and the company let us spend some hands-on time at tonight's Pepcom event at the MGM Grand. It's important to note, right off the bat, that these things are still firmly in prototype mode, so we'll hold off on passing any sort of judgement on build quality until the company puts something a bit more final in our hands. For the moment, however, they're buggy at best. And they certainly don't have the build quality of a, say Sony NEX, but that's to be expected in part due to t

Fitbit Flex hands-on at CES 2013

Shown off here at CES 2013, the Flex is a wireless band much in the vein of Nike's Fuelband and Jawbone's rebooted Up. But while it shares many similarities with those existing products, there are a few very notable areas where it breaks apart from the pack-- namely, the inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0.

The Sensus, which will sell for between US$59 and $99 when it arrives this summer, connects to the phone's 30-pin or Lightning connector for power and offers a passthrough for charging and data. When used with apps specifically designed to take advantage of it, the case adds 10 points of multitouch input. Canopy h

Hands-on with the 7-inch XO Tablet, OLPC's first consumer device

It appears the XO Touch (aka 4.0) wasn't the only new device OLPC brought to CES 2013. Interestingly, the company is moving into the consumer market this year, and it's releasing a 7-inch slate (1,024 x 600 resolution) in the US called, funnily enough, the "XO Tablet." So let's run through the specs. It's got a 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 gigs of flash storage (expandable by microSD), WiFi, HDMI-out, a 3,800 mAh battery, and 2- and 1.3-megapixel shooters at the back and front, respectively.

Olympus intros upgraded Stylus Tough TG-2, TG-830 and TG-630 rugged cameras

Olympus knows many of us will be jonesing for a rugged camera once the weather warms up, and it's more than happy to deliver with a trio of refreshed Stylus Tough point-and-shoots. The TG-2 iHS flagship is all about going closer and deeper than before: it preserves the 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, 25-100mm equivalent f/2.0 lens and 1080p video of its predecessor, but introduces a new Microscopic Macro mode that Olympus claims can provide extreme detail from as little as 1cm (0.4 inches) away.

The 24X zoom SZ-16 iHS makes the undeniably larger leap: its 14-megapixel sensor now relies on low light-friendly CMOS (instead of the SZ-12's CCD) and introduces a quicker TruePic VI processor.

Sony's 4K Handycam and HXR-IFR5 4K Interface Unit prototypes eyes-on

No question, today's Sony press conference was all about the 4K. TVs, media services and even 4K recording for consumers. The latter arrived in the form of a couple of prototypes. First off was the generically labelled 4K Consumer Camcorder, a prototype device that was hanging out in a glass case at the Sony booth after the event concluded -- though there was a Handycam logo on the side of the device. It's not a bad looking handheld -- about a standard size for a prosumer model, with a viewfinder, mic and handle at the top. As for specs? No such luck at this early stage. Directly to the right of the camcorder was another glass-encased device, the HXR-IFR5 Interface Uni

This year Liquipel was back with version 2 of their product. There are actually a few companies who do this now, as the technology was not unique to Liquipel in 2012. This year they hope to stay ahead of the competition (like HzO, which was at CES Unveiled) by offering a better coating -- as Engadget reports, "up to 100 times more effective" The big downside to Liquipel in the past has been that you had to send your precio

But what these guys lack in sheer size, they make up for a bit with bezel. There's a lot that on either side of the display.

Fortunately for you, the company is announcing 65 and 55-inch versions that'll occupy less room in your home while still pumping out 4K images. Both offer a Triluminous display with the company's X-Reality PRO and Motionflow XR960 technology, WiFi and NFC one-touch screen mirroring. At the same time, the company's launching a range of "Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray discs, but sadly the constraints of the format mean the discs

With Sony's CES press conference literally just starting, we're pleased to be able to give you an early look at the latest sound pushers from its Personal Audio Division.

Vizio's 2013 sound bars bringing big audio, Bluetooth connectivity to living rooms (ears-on)

An HDTV without a sound system to match is like a Ferrari on 14-inch rims -- still a beautiful sight to behold, but its performance falls short of what could be, given the right accessory.

It's available in Core i5 and i7 configurations, and both come with a very bright, 1080p display.
