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.

We have a look at the massive and amazing 105-inch Samsung UHD TV at CES 2014 as well as the new "Pro" line of Samsung Galaxy Tablets and Note products. These are a huge step in the right direction and are setting the bar for the coming year.

One Plus One Gets Pre-Order - For an Hour

If you've been tired of all the hoops to jump through in order to get a One Plus One, things are looking up! You will be able to pre-order this device on October 27, 2014 - for one hour. That's right. One hour. Obviously they are either trying to stimulate demand by lack of supply or they simply can't make them fast enough with their current production. Either way, if you want to get in on the goodness, check out the link below.

The One Plus One has a 5.5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 13MP camera, 3100mAh battery, and is available with 16GB or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately, each size does not come with a color option and instead the 16GB version will come in Silk White and the 64GB will come in Sandstone Black. The 16GB model will retail for $299, while the 64GB model is a mere $349 USD.

Smart Gift

If you've considered getting a smartwatch but think they all look ugly, you might be intrigued by this one. Intel recently debuted their new smart bacelet called the MICA or "My Intelligent Communications Accessory". This thing not only looks stylish, it also has an abundance of features. The price tag might keep most casual consumrers at bay though. At $450 retail, it's not cheap, but it does come with an AT&T SIM card with 2 years of service. The MICA will be coming to Barney's in time for Christmas and sold exclusively though this retailer.

“My Intelligent Communications Accessory (MICA), a collaboration between Opening Ceremony and Intel, celebrates what can happen when beauty meets intelligence. Meticulously designed for the stylish, connected woman and crafted from premium finishes, 18K gold coating and a curved sapphire glass touchscreen display. Engineered with Intel® technology, allowing you to easily view messages, your calendar, and alerts from your curated VIP contacts.

Destiny Trial & Demo

If you weren't a part of the beta demo for Destiny, you are still able to try out the demo - or a trial here right away. The good news is that the progress and characters you develop in either of these test versions will carry on into the full game if you decide to pull the trigger and pick one up. This is pretty cool and I'm glad to see more and more companies take this approach. It makes the decision a little easier and starting the full game a little less painful.

Beginning November 18th, 2014, players will be able to try Destiny for free via Trial or Demo. Both experiences offer a sampling of character creation and progression, story mission content, along with cooperative and social activities.
  • The Destiny Trial is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • The Destiny Demo is available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
