Jony Ive is Back at Apple

For those of you wondering why products from Apple have really sucked over the last few years - it is probably because Jony Ive was away. I'm not sure how many of us realized that Jony was out, but that really does explain the iPhone 7, 8 and X. Granted, he wasn't the only one designing products, but back when it was Steve and Jony at the design controls, things were way better than they are now. I expect the iPhone 12 or so to be back on track. Just kidding. Apple has been behind Samsung for a few years now and that's not likely to change in a couple years.

Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer, is returning to his management role within Apple’s design group after handing off managerial duties in 2015. 9to5Mac noted that Ive’s design deputies Dye and Howarth were no longer listed on Apple’s leadership page earlier today, and news of Ive’s return broke from Bloomberg.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.

Lenovo's X1 Carbon & MIIX 2 at CES 2014

We stopped by the Lenovo restaurant (Aquanox) in the Venetian to take a look at their new products. We have a bunch of pictures and coverage from Pepcom, so in the video below we talk about the new X1 Carbon as well as the nifty MIIX 2. Check out the goodies!

Digital Storm's Aventum 3 and more at CES 2015

Ever year we stop by Digital Storm to check out some of their new systems. Digital Storm has a wide variety of systems for pretty much any budget, but front and center was their new Aventum III case which is their supercar of the computer world. Basically the Aventum III is their highest end system which can feature the best of the best when it comes to hardware but the thing that sets them apart from other high end systems is the case that Digital Storm has designed specifically for the Aventum III. I'll let the video do the rest of the talking.
In addition to their Aventum III, Digital Storm was also showing off their Eclipse, Velox, and Bolt II systems. The Eclipse start around the $700 dollar range, the Bolt II starts around $1600 and goes up to around $2000 for the Velox. When we first started working with Digital Storm it was all out the high end systems but in the past couple years they've started to offer consumers a wide selection based on budget yet still giving you a high quality Digital Storm system and amazing service that they've become well known for.

Deepcool @ CES 2016

If you haven't heard of Deepcool before, after this CES, you will probably be trying to find someone who sells their products here in North America. Deepcool brought some interesting designs to their suite this year. One of such is the Tristellar case and by looks alone one could almost say it was out of a Star Wars movie. The graphics card is contained in the top one of the three "wings", while the PSU is in the lower left "wing" and lastly the ITX motherboard and CPU are housed in the lower right. There is also enough room to stick one of Deepcool’s liquid coolers in the case as well.

The Images will show the Tristellar S white case however this is a special Bill Owen MOD case with only 50 made globally; the normal version of the case comes in black.


The Genome which will be hitting the market later this year is more than just a case, it's an extreme liquid cooling system. The case and liquid cooler are designed to fit seamlessly together all the while bringing some interesting design elements in along the way. The cooling solution is a 360mm radiator with 3 PWM fans, a helix reservoir, and all the while using the new captain design CPU block and pump. Depending on the final price when it hits the market it really could be worth looking at when building a new rig.

To top it all off DeepCool was demonstrating a PSU that was liquid cooled which is something not too many people have worked on. Who knows if it will become a mainstream item or not, but it's always cool to seem something new and different.
