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.

BlackBerry launches Z3 and Q20

I guess BlackBerry was starting to feel left out with all the new phone announcements so they decided to show off their brand new Q20 and Z3 phones this week. The Q20 has a physical keyboard that many BlackBerry users love and is an upgrade over the previous Q10. The Z3 is a touchscreen smartphone that appears to be aimed at budget consumers around the world as the price tag is rumored to be around $200 bucks off contract. The specs on the Z3 are pretty low but with a price tag of $200 bucks I think people can forgive the lower specs. GSM Arena has all the details on both these new phones.

BlackBerry has announced a new duo of smartphones at the MWC 2014 - the BlackBerry Z3 and the BlackBery Q20.

The BlackBerry Z3 is a full-touch smartphone with a 5" display and runs BlackBerry OS 10.2.1. BlackBerry CEO John Chen says that this is the first phone to come up with the strategic partnership with Foxconn.

Ford at 2014 Calgary International Auto & Truck Show

We spent some time last week at the Calgary International Auto and Truck Show and took a look at what Ford has to offer - as well as strolled the venue to see what is new or exciting (or really, really shiney). Take a look at the video below and see what they have coming down the pipe and what we can expect from BlackBerry as they make moves in this direction in the coming years.
