I love to drive. And yet, I cannot wait for self-driving cars. Question is: who will bring them to the masses first? And how soon?
I hear your comments right now: "I will never let a computer drive me to work, it's not safe!" "I'm a great driver, it's everyone else who is the problem." "But I love my BMW/Audi/Mercedes/Hyundai Genesis/Ferrari/Jetta Sportwagen too much to ever let the car do the driving!"
Let's try to separate the mind from the machine, because trust me: mainstream … Read more
The Internet flexed its power with this week's SOPA/PIPA blackouts, but make no mistake: this battle isn't over yet, and will only intensify--it might get a lot more sneaky, in fact. But this week? The Internet wins. Will students lose out with Apple's new plan to revamp the textbook industry? Or just the students (and schools) who can't can't afford iPads?
After our first day of CES we discuss what tech is making waves in Vegas. What grabbed your attention and which products will never see the store shelves. Molly breaks down her interview with Google's Eric Schmidt and Brian Tong reflects on his time with LL Cool J live on the CNET stage.
We are broadcasting live from the CNET stage at CES 2012. Today, we welcomed Charles Seiber, Roku's marketing vice president, and picked his brain about the future of the tiny video-streaming box. With all the connected TVs showcased at CES, how will Roku fare in the future?
When is a phone just a phone? A TV just a TV? A Blu-ray player just a Blu-ray player? How about last year? Because in 2012 and beyond, the next wave of consumer electronics evolution is all about the "ecosystem."
That concept, in fact, is the topic of CNET's Next Big Thing Supersession at CES 2012. We'll be talking about this idea of the ecosystem, and how it's changing the landscape of consumer electronics--and turning media and service companies into hardware partners, if not actual hardware makers.
We'll talk one on one with Google'… Read more
The U.S. Government does, but we just wanted to make that clear for you in this weeks show. Kodak's facing an ugly future, Barnes and Noble is looking to spin-off its Nook division and will Yahoo ever be relevant again? Kanye West is comparing himself to Steve Jobs, seriously. Plus, we can't wait to see all the new shiny toys at CES 2012!
It's our annual prediction extravaganza! Stephen, the All-Seeing Eye, NostraTongus, and Molly the Mage look into 2012 and guess at which companies, which gadgets, and which trends will appear, die, expand, or maybe just go horribly wrong. Spoiler: we all think Facebook will IPO.
Thinksound's awesome little ts02 in-ear headphones($100) knocked me out in March, so I was eager to hear the company's new model, the ms01.
It doesn't look a whole lot different than the ts02, but that's not a bad thing. Both models are smaller and more comfortable than most in-ears, and both block a good amount of external noise. Almost as much as a noise-canceling headphone, and unlike NC models, the ms01 doesn't run on batteries.
