CES 2014: House of Marley Rocks the Show with Liberate Bluetooth Line

image

House of Marley's booth was full of woodsy, organic goodies this year, and visiting them is always a treat. This year along with positive vibrations and bumping live music, House of Marley also had some impressive new, consciously crafted audio products to show off! If you don't already know, one of the defining qualities of House of Marley is their dedication to and skill at crafting high-quality audio gear that feels great and performs phenomenally, while being fabricated almost entirely from their patented, Eco-friendly, upcycled materials and natural woods. In fact, if there were an iPhone Life magazine award for Most Eco-friendly Audio Tech Company, I'd have to nominate House of Marley.



CES 2014: Canary Watches Your Home Space When You Can't!

image

Smarter security devices are the wave and rage of CES this year. The Canary ($199 pre-order) is a small, portable device that practically bristles with sensors through which you remotely monitor your home.There is a wide-angle HD camera that automatically detects motion (through an I/R sensor) and will record activity over a 130 degree area of view; a temp, humidity and air quality sensor; and much more. Read on for more information on this power-packed and iOS-integrated security gadget.



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)!

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:
