Edifier @ CES 2013

One of our last stops at CES was at the Edifier booth.  This Chinese company makes some interesting products that offer really unique designs but still manage to pull off some pretty decent performance and quality.  Traditional speaker purists will tell you that the speaker cabinet must be made from wood and have a lot of specifications to enable good sound, but Edifier continues to break the mold and offer products with very unique designs that still sound rather nice.

One of the products of CES 2012 that we picked as our "Best of Show" was the Edifier Spinnaker speakers, and even though these are more than a year old, these speakers still catch your eye and your ear in terms of looks and performance.  The original red ones looked like the horns from some beast and they've expanded their lineup to include a lot more different colors.  These speakers are still some of my favorite products at the show again, and with the large color selection you can even snag a set that is a bit more muted if you don't want to scare away small children.

The other speakers that looked really interesting and sounded very good as well was the Eclipse.  These speakers have a very unique dual radiator design at the rear that helps project the sound to fill the room.  These really aren't that large, but even in a horrible venue like the LVCC, we noted that the sound was very good.  These speakers are quite directional as well and this will work great for PC speakers - and that's what Edifier has in mind.

We have lots more pictures from our last day at the show.  Go check them out here, and our full list of coverage here.

Amazon Users Not Willing to Burry the Hachette

Amazon had a bit of a rough quarter with a couple of new product launches, and making more enemies at a time like this is not really a good idea. According to Amazon customers questioned, there is a growing number of users that are buying their books elsewhere. Amazon needs to quit playing Apple and work things out or they will be losing even more customers down the road.

The Codex group also found out where those book buyers were going. About half the shifted buying went to Barnes & Noble, independent bookshops, barnesandnoble.com (the online store for Barnes & Noble), used bookshops and Costco, in that order.

Gaming High

Have you ever wished that you were able to have the experience the joy of gaming on Mount Everest? Me neither. If you are the lucky winner of a contest put out by the makers of Far Cry4, you will be doing just that. Should you win this competition, you will be going to Everest and playing FC4 there on a special piece of equipment made to withstand the harsh environment. This was all announced at comic con this year. Good luck to all who enter!

During a Far Cry 4 panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con event, the developers announced an interesting contest: one person will get the chance to play Far Cry on Mount Everest. The winner will use a specialized (but unspecified) piece of gaming hardware that both allows for playing on the go while also standing up to the harsh weather conditions of the icy mountains.
