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.
 
Ridgeback
 
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.

Avast acquires AVG

Two of the bigger virus protection names are joining forces with Avast dishing out $1.3 Billion to snap up rival AVG. Together the two companies will provide virus protection on 400 million devices worldwide and will be able to detect and take care of threats easier thanks to the increased pool of devices. Time will tell how this all works out but it seems like a good partnership at this point in time. Venture Beat has the full story.

Security software giant Avast Software has acquired rival AVG Technologies. Avast will pay $25 cash for each of AVG’s outstanding ordinary shares in a deal amounting to around $1.3 billion.

Founded out of Czechoslovakia in the early 1990s — initially called Grisoft — AVG has grown to become one of the biggest brands in desktop and mobile security apps. It also offers a range of related services, including AVG Cleaner for Android and Mac. The company is now headquartered in Amsterdam.

Hamster Draws His Own Selfie

This is probably the best idea ever. A hamsters draws himself - drawing himself. The reality is that this has more to do with the machine, than his skill - but it's equally awesome.

 

Overwatch Gets New Character

Overwatch is set to be one of the bigger games of 2016 and like many MOBA titles, Blizzard is adding new characters as the game progresses. The latest character to join the fray is Ana - and she's a lethal sniper that doubles up as a support character. If you haven't played Overwatch yet, it's worth a look.

Following the success of Overwatch's original mission, Ana served for many years as Strike Commander Morrison's second-in-command. Despite her responsibilities in leading the organization, Ana refused to step away from combat operations. She remained on active duty well into her fifties, until she was believed to have been killed during a hostage rescue mission by the Talon operative known as Widowmaker.
