LG Booth Tour at CES 2016

We have posted the video that accompanied our CES 2016 coverage from the LG booth. Check out the full article here - but you can simply enjoy the video below.

Star Wars Magic - Video of the Day

This is pretty cool and maybe a little disheartening how much CGI there is in Star Wars. Regardless, the way it comes together is pretty awesome.

 

Lian Li at CES 2017

Lian Li came back to CES 2017 with a few updates for their exciting products including USB 3.1 support via a module designed to be mounted to the rear of many of their tower cases. They also showed off some USB-C cables that work with current motherboards and bring this to your favorite last-generation Lian Li box.

One of their big debuts was the update to the  DK-04 adjustable table that also is able to house a pair of systems. The DK-04 could hold one system, but this standing desk is large enough to hold two systems and two employees could easily work at the same time. It's a monstrous beauty that I think everyone that stopped by asked if they were sending out review samples. The price to entry is a little steep at around $1800, but you have to keep in mind that in addition to being a unique and gorgeous Lian Li case, it's also an electric height-adjustable standing desk.

They've done a bit of work redesigning some of their cases to look a bit more modern and have added metal mesh accents to cases such as the upcoming PC-V3000, but one of the nicest cases overall that they have is the PC-09WX.  It's almost a cube case and has tempered glass, all aluminum build and tons of room, along with incredible looks. It's one of my favorites, but the image below doesn't do it justice.

For the DIY and hardware tester, they are working on a new test-bench that looks incredible. It answers pretty much all the questions, needs and desires of a hardware reviewer including a cover so temperature testing is now relevant. Previous test platforms have been open-air and while that makes it easy to swap hardware, temperature testing and load performance weren't comparable when put in a closed case. This new platform fills that need - and does it with a magnetic Plexiglas cover. It's super simple to use and configure however you need.

Lian Li has some great products already and there are some absolute gems in the works right now. Many of these products will be available here in the next month or two and we are excited to work with them more as they have absolute top-notch products.

Many Anti-Virus Flawed - Some Fixed

It seems that many anti-virus programs out there have (or have had) a flaw that allows an attacker to quarantine malicious code and then move it to a different location. This would allow the code to be executed once it's been improperly quarantined, and is kind of a big deal. The downside is that while some companies have patched this issue, there are probably more of them that haven't. Make sure you have proper backups with software such as Acronis - and for the love of God, don't open attachments from people you don't know.

"AVGater can be used to restore a previously quarantined file to any arbitrary filesystem location. This is possible because the restore process is most often carried out by the privileged AV Windows user mode service. Hence, file system ACLs [Access Control Lists] can be circumvented (as they don't really count for the SYSTEM user). This type of issue is called a privileged file write vulnerability and can be used to place a malicious DLL anywhere on the system," Bogner explained.

Motorola Returns to the Tablet Game

Motorola was purchased by Lenovo a while back and while Motorola hasn't made tablets for years, Lenovo, on the other hand, has quite a few models ranging from entry-level to mid-range. They are pushing the Motorola brand here in North America though and are bringing the Moto Tab to AT&T. This tablet features a 10.1 screen, a pair of cameras, a solid battery and a mainstream processor that will offer plenty of time between charges. It has a few nifty software features that help it compete with a Chromebook or a Surface Laptop.

Alternatively, there is a productivity mode that retains the Moto Tab’s software buttons, but shifts them to the left and converts the rest of that bottom area into something akin to what you see on Windows or Chrome OS. This mode is most useful with Lenovo’s Productivity Pack, an optional case folio that includes a keyboard and connects to the tablet through Bluetooth. To add a cherry on top, you will even find an integrated mouse pad below the keyboard, though you might find the whole thing a bit cramped if you have large hands like myself.
