CES 2014: Goji, Simplicikey and Kevo Automated Smart Locks at CES!

image

Home locks are now almost universally featuring smart features with some kind of wireless transmission capability built in. We saw at least three of the latest versions available from Goji, Kwikset, and SimpliciKey at CES this year. All three use a form of wireless capability to remotely open and close a deadbolt locking mechanism, in addition to the more traditional (and now somewhat quaint) metallic key method. All three have mobile control apps that also integrate with lock features or functions. I'll try to boil down what I could learn about each at the show...



Time for a New Pebble Smartwatch?

image

I'm a big fan of the Pebble SmartWatch as one of the early backers on Kickstarter. So I was anxious to see their announcement at CES yesterday. But frankly, it was a letdown. As I mentioned, I like my Pebble. I wear it almost everyday and appreciate that I can get text messages and caller ID on it. I appreciate the magnetic charging capability and the fact that the battery lasts about a week.
 



CES Jan. 7 Highlights: The Floodgates Are Open

Day one of International CES 2014 saw the floodgates of tech opened wide. What did our bloggers find?



CES 2014: Korus speakers bring 100 Watt sound with wireless innovation!

image

I like things that are simple. No wires, no fussy setup and updates. Just plug it in and press play. Korus is producing speaker technology to go head to head with other boutique wireless speaker products, and doing so without annoying lag or cumbersome setup. The V600 ($449.99), and V400 ($349) speakers were both on display at the show, and we got an up-close look and listen of these attractive new speakers. The sound of course was as superb as touted (as much as listening to them on the show floor is possible), but the cool thing is that they use neither Bluetooth nor WiFi to stream, but a frequency-hopping algorithm patented by their engineering team.



iPhone Cases For Every Age And Style At CES

image

While walking the show floor at CES today, I found so many fun new iPhone cases. There are cases for every budget and every style here and I loved learning about new brands (and planning out my next few case purchases). From tweens that love every new colorful accessory to adults who want their iPhone case to match their next handbag, there is quite literally something for everyone. 



CES 2014: Fitbit Force

image

The Force ($129.95) is the latest sleek wristband from Fitbit sporting an attractive OLED status screen, and on display here at CES 2014 in force (pun intended). Not only does the latest wearable activity tracker keep tabs on your health stats including sleep quality, and waking motion, but also tracks calories burned, motivates you to stay active, compete with friends, monitors incoming calls, and leverages Bluetooth 4.0 to keep everything in sync (wow, what a mouthful)! 



CES Jan. 6 Highlights: Pepcom's Digital Experience

Although International CES 2014 didn't officially start until today, Monday night was the big kickoff for the press because that's when Pepcom held their big Digital Experience electronics extravaganza.

iPhone Life bloggers found much to geek out over: 



Top 3 Pepcom Products for Teens from CES 2014

image

The Pepcom Digital Experience is one of the most anticipated events at the annual Consumer Electronics Show. More than 200 brands come together the night before CES officially opens to show tech journalists their best products of the year, and I'm bringing my three favorite products for teens to you.



CES 2014: Wireless Everywhere!

image

Darn near everything I saw last night at the CES pre-shows in Las Vegas included some kind of wireless. Wireless watches and fitness products galore, wireless bicycle handlebars, a real wireless basketball which tracks your shot-making skills in the cloud (which will be another post entirely.) To put it succinctly, I was wirelessly wowed! I did manage to find a few items that were not so wirelessly connected, but still very cool...



CES 2014: Best of Pepcom's Digital Experience

image

For me the Pepcom Digital Experience is like the unofficial launch of CES, an informal party where exhibitors give us a preview of what we can expect in the coming days of CES. With the sprawl of wireless charging solutions, audio gear, gaming gear, robotics, cameras, and wearable smart accessories it was a challenge to absorb everything that is on display. Nonetheless, I did my best to check out each and every booth at this condensed version of CES, and the following are some of the highlights of what I came across last night.
