CES 2013 is over, taking all the excitement and guessing with it. So what did we end up seeing at CES this past week? Well, for the most part 4k TV’s took the spot light on most tech blogs, while phones took more of a backseat, even to tablets. But Samsung and Sony managed to surprise quite a few people, with even Huawei turning a few heads. So what do we got?
So CES has finally kicked off and it seems almost every big electronics blog out there is inundated with UltraHD articles. Every company out there seems to have their own version of UltraHD, luckily most with the same resolution of 4k, because we certainly don’t want a repeat of blu-ray vs. HDDVD or Passive 3d to active 3d. There are a few 8k resolution TV’s… but lets be realistic here… they don’t have a shot for at least 10 more years. Anyway, what is this UltraHD thing all about, and how much will it cost us?
CES is only around the corner and there are some exciting things to be revealed this year. A lot of excitement in the HDTV industry for the most part. This year Samsung has more heads turning in their direction for their hype building HDTV teaser, while most people don’t expect too many big things from Smart phones besides some mid-range device.
It’s that time of year again, Black Friday is just around the corner with Cyber Monday and Small business Tuesday right behind. Although, it seems, more and more online stores ignore Cyber Monday and have an entire week of crazy sales. We don’t have the inside word on what deals to expect, but we do know what new tech gifts you should keep and eye out for and what deals you’ll probably see come Black Friday. So get your wallet out, a hot cup of coffee for those long lines and your most comfortable shoes ready, cause the shopping season is here!
Nintendo is known for innovation, especially when someone looks at the Wii and see’s how the other two big console companies reacted. They both raced to have their own motion control systems, and the only survivors of this battle seems to be Nintendo and Microsoft, as Sony’s Move is viewed as a massive failure. But what’s next in Nintendo’s future? Well, E3 is this week and Nintendo unveiled the final build of their next console, the Wii U.
Long ago, when red and blue (or green) glasses were the only way people could watch a movie in 3D, it appeared and faded quickly. It’s fading was probably expected, how long could someone stand watching a movie with only red or blue. Not to mention the headaches it could cause. Polarized glasses were around in the 50′s, but it was expensive to print and film. For a while 3D was out of the picture, then suddenly it made a resurgence. We can blame the hype of Avatar and it’s record breaking sales for the sudden onslaught of 3D films. Technology was now at the point that making a film 3D wasn’t that expensive, and in some cases, drew more ticket sales. The rise of digital downloads and streaming movies have made it tougher and tougher for theaters to get us off the couch and into a theater seat. 3D, was the answer according to the industry. They needed something that you couldn’t get at home and 3D was that something.
