This is what you would have seen if you went on holidays to Las Vegas

I am just wrapping up my holiday and unfortunately I haven’t been to Las Vegas…
Every year in January the Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show seems to be taking more room on the technology landscape. For those like me who haven’t been able to go, here is a condensed overview of the key trends I have picked up from the 2012 trade show.

Above and beyond being always cheaper, faster and more powerful (eg: D-Link’s Amplifi HD Media Router 3000 DIR-857 router will be the first to supports USB 3.0 and 450Mbps dual-band… compared to my own router which I thought was quite good with its 100 Mbps!!!!), I would say that the words that are mostly influencing technology development are: Anywhere anytime// Android// Green?

– Anywhere anytime:
Cloud computing is now a default feature on most devices and applications which gives a new dimension to mobility.

We have also been talking a lot about multiple screen media consumption, well it looks that a few hardware suppliers believe in the one screen domination.

 Examples:  

Intel’s ‘Nikiski’ Notebook 

 I like it because it combines the activity of a tablet and a PC together and for those (like me) who haven’t found a great benefit in fitting their Ipad experience between a laptop and smartphone, this might be the answer??

 Sharp Aquos Freestyle ConceptTV 

A TV that can be carried around the house… hmmmm, not so sure that this is such a groundbreaking achievement????? However, removing all the wires and redesigning the TV tuner with integrated WIFI, that’s ground breaking. Could it be the start of a merge between TV and tablets?
More gimmicky but useful for those who can’t let go of their mobile phone even in the shower the HzO Waterblocking Technology is the answer!!!

– Greener?: 
On one hand more efficient technology should mean less strain on resources and energy: is the announcement of OLED technology in some LG TVs a good thing? 
But on the other hand some new products such as the LG blast chiller refrigerator (claiming to cool a can of beer in less than 5 min). I know that beer is a very important topic, particularly in Australia but it still makes me wonder how much LG engineers care about the future…

Good to see that some recycling initiatives such as “Uncle Oswald Is Our Hero are also getting traction!

 – Android:
That mobile is the future proof strategy for Google is no surprise to anyone now. What seems to be more surprising is to see Android setting itself up as the cross platform standard… Windows 8 launches, more than 400,000 Android apps will be available through BlueStacks

What’s the most impactful technology progress you have seen this year?

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen
    in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a
    format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
    I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great
    though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a
    few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  3. Hi all, here every one is sharing such familiarity, therefore it’s good to read this blog, and I used to pay a visit this webpage everyday.

  4. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
