The Keurig of Food

We are all very familiar with the coffee maker that allows you to make individual cups of coffee in mere seconds, and now a similar machine has recently been launched that attempts to do the same thing - for food. This new device is called the Genie and all you do is put in your smart baking pod and away you go.

At the end of the 30 sec baking process, the Genie door will pop open, unleashing the mind blowing aroma of a chef. Inside you’ll find your personalized freshly baked dish, exactly the way you pictured it, exploding with your specifically chosen flavor! Bon Appetite

Blu-Ray Now Does 4K

For a while now online video streaming and posting services have released video in 4K. Thus far there are no 4K disk format media, but the Blu-Ray Disk Association is changing that . They are bringing out the Ultra HD Blu-Ray. This is about time! Not everyone has the bandwidth for streaming 4K content and with the big push behind 4K TVs, content was lacking. I expect 4K TV sales to increase once these disks start hitting the market.

For years, Blu-ray Disc™ has set the standard for high definition picture and audio quality in the home. Ultra HD Blu-ray will do the same for UHD home entertainment," said Victor Matsuda, chair, BDA Promotions Committee. “The technical capabilities of Blu-ray Disc, in particular its significant storage capacity and high data transfer rates, will enable the delivery of an unparalleled, consistent and repeatable UHD experience."

Aftershokz @ CES 2013

We met AfterShokz last year at CES and they were bringing to market their first product - the AfterShokz Sport.  Since then they have lauched the Sportz 2 and Sportz M2.  The M2 has a microphone and is still very much a current product for them.  They did announce and have some working samples of the upcoming AfterShokz Bluez.  This is a Bluetooth version that is based off the Sportz M2 and has a microphone, as well as full media player functionality.

The media player functionality looks a little strained with some of the controls located on the back of the headset and other controls located on each ear(ahem) cheek-piece.  Time will tell how this works in the real world.  Typically, AfterShokz put a fair bit of thought into usage as these are designed to be worn while running and working out.

Miiverse for PC and Smartphones

One thing that seems to be a somewhat decent feature with the WiiU is Miiverse. It is social network for the WiiU community, that will be expanding to smartphones and web-browsers soon. The release date is supposed to be sometime in April or May. It should be interesting to see if it will be a hit or just another attempt by Nintendo to do something out of the ordinary. Read more about it at the links provided below.

"Miiverse will be key part of the Wii U console and will be available at launch. The social network will connect players who have Mii profiles on the same system, and connect players from around the world via the Nintendo Network. Miiverse will be free to use for all Wii U players and won’t carry a price nor a subscription plan. Miiverse is based on web-browser technologies, which means it will be accessible from any browser enabled device in the world, including phones, tablets, and more.  To be a tad more specific, Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki stated that the app would be available in April or May, though a firm date has yet to be pinned down."

Rosewill @ CES 2014

We had the chance to stop by and see Rosewill at CES 2014 and saw a whole bunch of new products. Rosewill produces a ton of different products and they seem to always be releasing new products so we had a bit of catching up to do.


Rosewill had a whole variety of cases on display and this year they've got some very nice looking aluminum cases that they have just released. Typically aluminum cases cost a fair bit more than steel cases but Rosewill has a couple offerings that won't break the bank and will make it look like you spent a whole lot more than you actually did.

Rosewill Case Lineup @ CES 2014


Rosewill had quite a few new products on display from their gaming lineup which included gaming keyboards, gaming mice, mousepads, headesets, and pretty much anything else a gamer would need. 


Another interesting product launch from Rosewill is their R-Studio lineup of earbuds. Rosewill has released 3 versions and you can expect to find them ranging from around $39.99 USD (F-340's)-up to $59.99 USD (F-860's). We have seen quite a few earbud offerings at CES 2014 but Rosewill's are some of the more affordable ones we've come across and we look forward to taking a close look at them in the future.
