What mattered on CES day 2

Mattered on CES

Alright folks, we’re into the business end of CES now, but still the hot products keep on coming. With so much to choose from, I’ve had problems squeezing everything into this roundup, but here’s what stood out at the second official day of the show.

After more than 68,000 people sunk a total of $10 million into the project, it’s safe to say there is lot of interest in Pebble’s new watch. With an e-ink style display and the ability to change watch faces as often as you like, it’s a lot cooler than the smart watches we’ve seen so far from the companies such as Sony. It will show messages sent to your Android or iOS smartphone and can be configured via the cloud. Check out Brian Bennett’s hands-on for more.

Sometimes at CES, you get a glimpse at the sort of tech we’ll be using in the future and we were treated to such a peek today courtesy of Samsung’s Youm flexible display. Youm is an OLED flexible display that Samsung demonstrated bending around the side of a phone. There were a bunch of 5-inch displays on concept products on show at the announcement, and we have all the pictures of these exciting devices in this picture gallery.

Another new material we’ll be seeing on products soon is Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Previous versions have been used on smartphones and tablets to make them less prone to scratching, or rather, better at making the scratches on the glass less visible. Corning say that its new version is three times more damage-resistant than version two, and Brian Tong went to see them to put their claims to the test. To find out what happens when a giant metal ball is rolled at a phone screen from an acute angle, watch this video.

We’re always looking ahead at CNET, and today we gathered a bunch of people together at our stage to talk on a panel called “The next big interface – you.” With luminaries from forward-looking companies Nest, Leap Motion, and Fitbit, the panel talked about how we’re going to be controlling our gadgets in the future. Watch the full video and check out the pictures to find out what that means for you. Plus there’s demonstration of brain-sensing headbands, eye controls and more.

Also on the CNET stage was actor Danny DeVito and his amazing naked foot with the 404 crew. To understand what that sentence means, you need to watch this all the way through, it’s a riot.

Finally, the CNET editors have been voting on who wins the Best of CES 2013 award tonight (check out the finalists here), but we need you to play your part too. Head here to vote for your favorite product of the show — remember, you can’t complain about the winner if you didn’t vote!

  1. I would like a netbook computer, mainly for college stuff. I would like it lightweight and have the ability to use wi-fi compatability anywhere and good speed (not some laptop that can take 20 min to load and a pair of min to spread out the net)

    Which netbook computer is right for speed?

    Do all netbook computers have internet on the run? (My buddies netbook computer does)

    Just how much will they weigh?

    What’s the least expensive netbook computer that will get the task done?

    What is the best netbook computer for college work and the like will be able to take anywhere?

    Sorry I am a noob at knowing stuff concerning the netbook computers. I acquired a 2002 laptop that’s huge and weighs in at a great deal and it is really slow, and that i want something totally new and. Probably the least expensive someone to.

    My school includes a couple of small netbook computers and they’re slow as $%$%^. Could they be all slow like this?

  2. initial estimations concerning the recession were much more compact than we recognized later.

    what were the first estimations in comparison towards the final amounts (use GDP changes)?

    bay area – search engines like google would be the answer.

    “Why has got the initial estimate of real GDP for that 4th quarter of 2008 been modified lower a lot?

    Within the 4th quarter of 2008, which immediately adopted the 2008 economic crisis, business activities fell dramatically. BEA’s initial, or “advance” estimate of GDP for that quarter, that was launched on The month of january 30, 2009, demonstrated a loss of 3.8 percent in an annual rate. Within the second estimate, that was launched on Feb 27, 2009, the modified estimate demonstrated a loss of 6.2 percent. Since that time, the estimate continues to be modified several more occasions (in March 2009, This summer 2009, This summer 2010, and This summer 2011), and also the latest estimate shows a loss of 8.9 %.Inch

  3. ON April second, the JW organization will announce the Awake! magazine has been cut from 32 pages to simply 16. Could it be only a sign the finish in near? Or the religion does much more cuts because of the reduced retention rate?

    ALL CONGREGATIONS

    Ref: Announcement to become read following the Watchtower study a few days of April 2, 2012

    Dear Brother:

    The Jehovah’s organization has effectively used the web to spread what’s promising

    in most parts of the world. Begin to see the impact our sites are getting. In a single day

    normal, 400 000 people, both Jehovah’s Witnesses yet others, connect to the websites

    watchtower.org, and jw.org jw-media.org. They read our online guides in additional than

    430 languages. Every single day, they fall almost 500, 000 audio recordings, text or

    videos in sign language. Every single day, a hundred demands for Bible research is received.To

    improve the potency of our utilisation of the Internet, the Regulating Body made the decision to participate the 3 sites in

    just one, named jw.org. This website is going to be completely refurbished. He’s attractive and simple

    both to travel through a pc along with a portable device.

    The launch from the remodeled site jw.org is scheduled for early June 2012.

    He’ll present interesting details about our work of preaching, subsidiaries, Halls

    U . s . and conferences. A news section provides current details about occasions

    affecting the folks of God around the world. Sections selected our magazines

    could be presented more effectively online will be released only in

    jw.org site. They include: “To Youth,” “My First Bible Training” and also the report

    around the graduation of Gilead edition towards the public from the Watchtower and “To think about in

    Family “and” Youthful People Request “from Awake. In addition, a number of articles on-line

    only accessible on the website will give you obvious and concise solutions to questions regarding the Bible and

    Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    The Regulating Body noted the growing trend of individuals online

    look for materials of reading through and, therefore, carefully examined the result that

    trend is getting around the printing industry so we could possibly get equipment for paper and

    printing. Due to these changes, in the amounts in The month of january 2013, Awake!

    edition towards the public and also the Watchtower will disappear from 32 to 16 pages. These magazines

    we distribute towards the public continuously give a wealthy way to obtain information

    informative to draw in individuals to the reality of God’s Word. Because the items in

    each number will disappear, this allows more teams in a position to translate the translation

    all amounts of Awake! and problem towards the public from the Watchtower, thus growing

    the amount of languages ??that are around. This problem from the Watchtower study continues

    getting 32 pages.

    The Regulating Is certain that these changes will let us achieve even

    more and more people using the saving message from the Bible because it continues to supply a wealthy

    way to obtain spiritual food to world brotherhood.

    so how do you write all of this in french? NO GOOGLE TRANSLATE PLEASE.

    Introducing my school.

    My school is within Devon, England. It is a languages school as well as accepts boys and women.

    Our school routine is the fact that we visit our form rooms, have 2 periods, then break, then two more periods and lunch, therefore we get one more lesson go home. School begins at 8:40 and finishes at 3:00.

    An evaluation of my school along with a french school.

    There a couple of commonalities. A french school doesn’t have uniform, whereas mine does. A french school also offers an extended day than the usual typical british school. More other variations are- In france they schools allow students to visit home for supper, should you didnt prosper enough twelve months you need to stay and perform the whole year again and also the french schools title their years dissimilar to ours. For instance, year 9 could be quatrieme.

    I favor my school if it werent for that uniforms, we’d be investing age range within the morning and needing to choose things to put on constantly.

    An account from the rules.

    Most british schools rules are that people cant have makeup, jewelry, piercings, our uniform should be correct, natural coloured hair with no gum in training.

    I believe a few of the rules are a little unfair for instance, natural coloured hair because regardless of what colour our locks are, it doesn’t affect our education by any means. The college only disallow this simply because they desire a good status.

    I believe the guidelines that you’re not permitted music at school is alright since you might lose out on something important the teacher says and never understand how to do your projects correctly.

    An account of my timetable.

    My core subjects are british, maths, science and french. i love british and science although not really maths. I do not like maths much since i am really bad in internet marketing however i like british because I am great in internet marketing. A week ago in class, we’d drama on thursday also it would be a good lesson because i was realy creative with this work and performed a very fun game with chairs.

    How you can improve.

    My talents are british and citizenship. I believe these subjects are simple to me since i am proficient at them.

    My weak points are maths and technology since i am not so practical and good with amounts, nor shall we be held proficient at building things.

    I’m able to improve next term by looking into making notes, studying many listen even harder.

    THANKYOU That’s IT, like i stated PLEASE NO GOOGLE TRANSLATE and sorry its such a long time. many thanks, i’ll answer the questions you have too! 10PTS Whomever Performs This Without Any GOOGLE TRANSLATE THANKYOU xxxx

  5. When can one sign up for CES 2012, when will they open registration? (You will find, sometimes within the Tech media area)

  6. Before typing my question a couple of things i wish to say:

    1. Thanks ahead of time everyone

    2. Please attempt to think the way to go through excellent and browse the entire text to know the purpose

    many thanks

    Each year i use a a vacation in Montenegro with my loved ones and buddies i’m from Serbia a neighboring country without ocean, everything was great until twelve months i met a woman with title converted to british “beautiful girl” and even she was but still is gorgeous. I had been like seventh grade and clearly not so good with women but in her I’d no struggle speaking no resistance she was my almost ExacT female copy in character I have not experienced anything similar but neither did the majority of you. Holiday ended i returned to Serbia she returned to Bosnia I held my feelings for an entire year and the year after I made the decision to inform her things i feel because I didn’t have guts to inform her personally things i feel I made use of a mobile phone and also to worsen I texted her. An error I’m now fully conscious of since i grew to become more knowledgeable naturally by time… the very next day she stated hello which was the final word she ever explained I recall time exact moment and put where she explained that… days passed no reply nothing the anticipation wiped out me. I needed a strong good or bad not maybe, that lack of knowledge ate me inside throughout years until this very day i’ve troubles with this answer her and me always agreed that facebook is shit (no aim of insulting anybody) and didn’t create a profile she lately made one also it sparked the lengthy survived tinder which i desired to released with all of my strength, I still don’t have a facebook profile. Like a custom in each and every country people get wasted by alcohol my country especially i drank lots of alcohol to extinguish my desire to have her but nothing assisted. Being with another girl represented artificial feelings. I discovered her on skype and I don’t get sound advice add her like a friend? wait for vacation and risk her not there and waiting, trust me i’m tired of waiting 4-five years have passed her not speaking in my experience not responding to my calls nothing dead silence that perhaps eats me very difficult… You’ve seen this please give a guidance or two things are desirable a minimum of a guidance ways to get over her since these feelings dont make my days very nicejust recalling her makes me think why that maybe stands there, just unbelievable. Both male and female peaces of recommendation are most welcome

    Many thanks for the solutions.

    I think you’ll know very well what I authored which you is going to do your very best to reply to it within the finest manner possible

    incidentally whether it helps me and her are generally exactly the same age 18 (almost)

    I’m born in december 25 and she or he is 29 commonalities between us are neverending…

    I understand i’m youthful and all sorts of that however i by simply not really a known reason cannot forget her….
