Shenzhen Geniatech Co. Ltd presents some interesting Android Powered Set-top-boxes. These could be sold for around $100 like the Apple TV or Roku box, but they just run the full Android OS including support for lots of video codecs.

While Android is not yet really optimized for use on a TV with a remote control, this type of device will support the Google TV software (in this case, without HDMI pass-through overlay features) pretty soon once Google releases that software source code.

Reese’s Unveils the Next Big, Little Thing During CES 2011

A few weeks ago, the Reese’s company sent a huge crate to my home. I was as excited as all of you – I LOVE chocolate and especially Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Who doesn’t love them?! The company asked me to live stream from their CES booth and help unveil The Next Big, Little Thing. I happily obliged, of course.

Drum roll, please…..

Reese’s Minis are the next big, little thing from Reese’s. Minis come in packages of dime-sized Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup candies. They are super delicious and actually fun to eat. I was surrounded by bags upon bags of these little goodies and it was very difficult not to rip into a bag every five minutes. I think I gained ten pounds just looking at them for two days, to be honest.

Are you a fan of Reese’s candy? What’s your favorite? Have you tried out the new Minis yet?

What is the Next Big Little Thing?

A giant orange crate from Reese’s showed up on my door step the other day. You’ll have to watch the video to see what’s inside. We can tell you it’s The Next Big, Little Thing. If you plan to be at CES 2010, be sure to stop by Reese’s booth in the Grand Lobby at Noon PST for a special announcement from Reese’s. I will be streaming live from the Grand Lobby on January 8 and 9.
