Mimoco, the folks behind the awesome Mimobot flash drives we love so much, recently revealed a new line of USB flash drive card readers dubbed MimoMicro. The new miniature designer drives function the same way as a normal flash drive, but the digital storage comes from users' MicroSD cards from their smartphone, tablet or camera. Read More...

Sony continued the first-day trend of press conferences that moved along at a breakneck pace, covering a wide range of categories without lingering too long on one thing and thus saving the audience from burnout. That's something that many companies, including Sony, have done in the past and instead the new trend seems to be "Hold on, because we're really moving."

Sony approached their press conference with a shotgun, giving everyone a brief overview of their new items. While there wasn't any one "Holy CRAP!" item on the list, it was more about incremental upgrades to items: Handycams that can project videos up to 100" wide on nearby walls, the Bloggie Live camera that can livestream HD video content to the web, a remote control for their televisions that features a touchscreen and a microphone for voice control, and so on.

Oh, and Will Smith provided one of the more awkward "Celebrities at CES" moments we've ever seen.

Considering its already a crowded market we never really expected VIZIO to jump into the PC game, but the company predominantly known for their HDTVs has done just that with line of ultra-thin notebooks and slick all-in-one desktop PCs.

So why should we care about a VIZIO PC when there are already so many Windows machines available from countless manufacturers? Well, VIZIO is apparently approaching the idea of personal computer in a different way than other OEMs. First of all VIZIO PCs will sport a clean system image (no useless bloatware) optimized by Microsoft and their PCs will act as an extension of the current V.I.A (VIZIO Internet Apps) ecosystem the company has already implemented in their HDTVs, Blu-ray players and tablet.

Samsung wants to make things simpler, smarter, and more enjoyable for the consumer. At its CES opening-day press conference, the goal of the company is to "break down the walls that exist between devices." Much like Ronald Reagan called for the Berlin Wall to come down and bring David Hasselhoff to both East and West Germany.

How are they doing that? The biggest step was in the new line of televisions it unveiled during the event. Samsung first introduced the "Smart TV" in 2008, which featured televisions that had internet connectivity, and other new features. Now, Samsung claims that the new TVs feature "Smart Interaction, Smart Content, and Smart Evolution," and these look like they might actually deliver on all three promises.

A few weeks ago Microsoft announced that this would be their last year attending CES and we made sure to attend the keynote thinking they would end things with some crazy huge announcement. They didn't, but there were a few announcements that had us intrigued and you can find all the details past the break. Read More...

Parrot's AR.Drone has been hovering around neighborhoods for a few years now and it was only a matter of time before Parrot delivered an upgraded model -- enter the AR. Drone 2.0. Officially revealed here at CES 2012, the second generation quadricopter has been equipped with upgraded HD cameras and sports a new leaner design. Read More...

The 2012 Consumer Electronics Show kicks off next week in Las Vegas, Nevada and we couldn't be more excited to get our grubby hands on all the latest tech on the show floor. Just like last year we're no doubt going to be caught off guard by a few surprise announcements, but other than that we have a pretty good idea about what we're going to see. To get things started on our end we're going to fill you in on our hopes and predictions for some of our favorite categories. Read More...

LG recently announced that they will be unveiling the world’s largest “Ultra Definition" TV at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The TV spans 84-inches and features an 8 million pixel (3840 x 2160) resolution -- four times that of current HDTVs. Read More...

This year CES saw its most attendees ever, and it was also the first time MTV Geek was on the show floor to bring you all of the biggest announcements. The show was enormous, and we were absolutely blown away at the sheer size of the convention -- there is really no way to explain just how much there is to see. With that said, we'd like to give you a quick wrap-up and tell you what upcoming gadgets and gizmos have us most excited.

Tablets were king this year but, the one that has us most intrigued is Motorola's upcoming XOOM. It's the first device to ever run Google's tablet specific OS, Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). It has features the tablet space has been in dire need of. Read More...

Google TV may be somewhat old news, not to mention disappointing with all the major networks blocking the device. However, that didn't stop us from getting a nice demo of Logitech's Revue set-top box while we were at CES 2011. They showed us a lot of features that we don't hear about very much, like the TV to TV video conferencing using Logitech's TV cam and the in-depth What's On menu that will show us what is currently on and how much time is left in the show.

They also showed us just how much can be accomplished using the wireless keyboard designed for the Revue box. Save bookmarks, watch TV picture in picture-style while you surf the web, switch between Google Chrome and live TV all by simply clicking buttons right from the comfort of your couch.

Check out the video to get all the details on the Logitech Revue and see a detailed demo!

The iLounge at CES 2011 was full of accessories for your favorite iDevice. Whether it's a Bluetooth keyboard for your iPad or a nice new dock for that iPod Touch, you could find just about anything you wanted. GelaSkins had a booth set up to show off all their removable skins for electronics. Of course, with us being the geeks we are, the Marvel character skins really got our attention. They started off with Spider-Man, Iron Man and the X-men but, recently GelaSkins added Wolverine, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Thor, Storm, Phoenix and Ghost Rider to the line-up!

GelaSkins use a patented adhesive from 3M so, if you get sick of looking at Spider-man on your laptop you can peel it off and throw your new favorite character on their, whenever you want. Marvel isn’t the only company putting characters on these skins. Frank Miller (the man behind Sin City and 300) has also signed up to make some of his stuff available. Read More...

Flash drives are must have item nowadays, but it seems like those plain black drives are just too easy to lose. Mimoco was at CES 2011 this year showing off some of the most creative flash drives we've seen. With licenses like Star Wars and now DC Comics anybody can find a personal flash drive they'd definitely keep their eyes on.

The new DC partnership kicked off with a limited to 5,000 run of vintage 1939 Bob Kane Batman drives! They look so good the Mimoco.com website crashed when they announced these little guys. Don't worry Bat-Fans, that's just the initial batch, a full series of DC heroes and villains are coming. Batman, Joker, Robin and Catwoman will be the first in the series becoming available in February for everybody to enjoy. Read More...

Motorola's first entry in the tablet space definitely has some potential. The 16x9 screen is perfect for movies and the clips we saw from Despicable Me looked great. Motorola also said games currently in the Android Market will resize nicely to the screen with games like Dungeon Defenders said to be quite a treat. (With a dual-core processor they better be) Its introduction also gives Verizon customers another choice with the Galaxy Tab already available. No pricing out yet but, it should be competitive and there's no doubt discounts will be available should you choose to sign a data plan contract with Verizon.

Sporting a dual-core processor, fingerprint scanner, HD video camera; Motorola claims their upcoming Atrix smartphone is, "the most powerful phone in the world." While we probably wouldn't go that far, we will admit the Atrix is a very impressive device with features we've never seen before. On top of being a great phone we'll also be able to use it as a laptop or desktop PC. Yep, that’s right, just put the phone in its dock; hook up a monitor, keyboard and mouse and you'll have an Android PC. There's also a laptop dock that really is just a screen, keyboard and battery, the phone does all the work. We can even hook the dock up to our TV and browse through our pictures and video with a remote. Read More...

Verizon's Droid line of smartphones have always tried to stay in front of the rest of the Android pack, and while other companies like Samsung have passed them with newer version of the platform, Motorola isn't going to stop pushing. The new Droid Bionic only proves this; with a 2GHz dual-core processor and support for Verizon's new 4G LTE data network, the Bionic is clearly built for speed.

Connectivity is another focal point for the new smartphone with features including a front-facing camera for video conferencing and an HDMI out so we can watch the HD videos we record and play games on the big screen. There's also a pretty cool mirror mode that will let us choose between streaming content to the device or straight to our TVs!

No pricing or availability was announced but, we got a chance to see the new phone in action while we were at CES this year. Check out the video below for a quick look at what this speed demon has to offer. Read More...
