Mushkin at CES 2015

Mushkin has a couple of new products that they were showing off this year at CES 2015. The biggest announcement was their new Striker SSD to add to their SATA SSD lineup. 
Mushkin is also excited about their new M.2 Hyperion drive that are based on Phisons latest PS5007-E7 controller. It should be very interesting to see how this Phison can perform in real world testing and we look forward to getting one of these into our test rig but the numbers being talked about are very impressive.
In addition to Mushkin's SSD's they were showing off their new DDR4 memory which will be called Ridgeback. Mushkin also was showing off their lineup of portable battery powerbanks which they offer in a variety of different capacities.

Martian Watches @ CES 2016

Martian was one of the companies that started the smart-watch thing - and they've done it with style from the get-go. Their watches have always focused on one thing first - the watch. They are great analog timepieces that also have a few smart features thrown in for good measure. They have a pretty wide distribution in the USA and have limited retail locations in Canada. It's too bad, because their current generation of "Active" watches - including the Envoy, Alpha and Electra have been doing very well.

As CES, Martian announced some new watches that are geared more toward female users. These do not have a notification display, but instead use different vibration pulses and a mutli-colored LED to indicate what app is sending a notification. It could be a text message, incoming call, Facebook post or pretty much anything that sends notifcations. You have the ability to specify a ton of options and notification settings via their handy app. 

CES Releases

The battery life on their devices is about two years for the actual watch, while the new watches should last about a week on a charge for the smart features. The new watches charge via pogo pins, while the current "Active" series charge by way of a microUSB port that gets covered up for water resistance.

There are a lot of very attractive products coming later this spring from Martian - and the best thing of all - they are watches, that just happen to be smart. Sometimes there is more beauty in less features than a watch that drains the battery by 2:00pm.

Android App Pick #202 - Planner 5D

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are looking at a useful application that delves a bit into the VR world. Planner 5D takes home floor planning and puts it at your fingertips. Once created, you can then take a virtual look through the plan with your favorite Google Cardboard or other VR headset. Take a look. It might save you some time!

Intel 10-Core Broadwell-E Extreme Ed CPUs

Intel is picking up the pace with their Broadwell-E chips and have managed to cram 10 distinct cores onto this one piece of silicon. This will plug into most (if not all) motherboards that support Broadwell-E chips and it will bring a lot more performance and the cost of a lot of money. Either way, this will appear as 20 logical cores and support 4-channels of DDR4-2400 memory for starters. There are a ton more features and performance available later this year for a mere $1750 USD for the high-end 6950X.

The new chips, with the 10-Core i7 6950X Extreme Edition being the very tip of the computing spear, rely on the Turbo Max Technology 3.0 feature, which essentially checks each individual core’s performance, which can vary a little due to manufacturing differences. It then allocates the most intensive single thread tasks to that core, to make sure it gets the job done.

HyperSound has released a new video showcasing their transparent glass speakers that have really incredible directional sound. If they sound as good as they look, I could see these really taking off.
