ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.

This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.

Steam passed Xbox Live

Steam has hit 65 Million active users which now puts them ahead of Xbox Live when it comes to active users and shows a 30% rise for Steam in the past year. This is a very interesting stat as PC gaming has been written off for a few years now, yet Steam has managed to grow anyways. The Verge has all the numbers over here.

Steam now has more than 65 million active accounts. The figure marks a 30 percent rise in players over the last year. The video game digital-download platform also boasts daily peak concurrent users of more than 6 million.

Sennheiser at CES 2014 (Gamers and DJs Welcome)

We have a look at a few new products from Sennheiser this year at CES. They just launched a couple of new gaming headphones - including a closed style as well as some great new DJ headphones. Take a look at our interview for more info!

Samsung Super Booth with SuperUHD at CES 2015

We stopped at Samsung's booth again this year at CES and they always have a ton of beautiful products. That's one thing that I have grown to appreciate about Apple and Samsung is the fact that they are serious about product design. Samsung showed off their S-UHD TVs, Super Smart TVs (with PlayStation Now) in addition to Gear VR that's been out for a while and also some amazing speakers that look like Portal Turrets. 

 

Of course their curved screens are making their way into computer LCDs and both they had a bunch of curved 4K monitors on displays to give you an idea of what is possible.

Apple Watch Edition - Gold

In order to make the Apple Watch Edition - Gold, Apple did the unthinkable... they used very little gold. That's right, it's an allow that uses some gold for color, but is largely silver and Paladium so you can rest assured knowing that the $17,000 watch is made from the highest quality gold-colored metal. It looks nice and this "feature" is what will make it sell.
