Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Thanks to the Showstoppers product showcase, Boogie Board was among the best things we saw at CES 2011. It’s a simple premise – a writing tablet, similar to a grease board, made from an pressure sensitive LCD screen. You can write on the tablet to take notes, write a grocery list, or doodle. Boogie Board uses no power until you erase it.

LCD writing tablets are currently available at Brookstone stores in the mall near you.

You are about to witness a historic moment in the history of consumer electronics. Motorola unveils not only the most powerful smartphone yet based on Nvidia’s Tegra2 ARM Cortex-A9 processor, but has actually worked feverishly on making software layers on top of Android to provide for a Desktop/Laptop replacement experience, all powered by the phone!

Motorola presents full HD resolution Firefox web browser running on top of Android, Citrix virtualization integration for running all other x86 apps that can be virtualized, they put Android in a Window so you can still run any Android apps in that Window when in Desktop mode!

And this is the first generation of this type of product, so you are only witnessing the beginning of ARM Powered Pocketable Smart Mobile Devices to be able to power everything you would do on a Laptop powered by Intel/Microsoft. Expect even faster dual-core processors to run this type of product soon with unlimited amounts of tabs with lots of pictures/embedded videos and do it all fully smoothly.

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


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

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?
