After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

CES 2010 Consumer Electronics Show - Day 1

Introduction


Well it's that time again; time to head to the oasis known as Las Vegas to attend the annual CES or Consumer Electronics Show.  We had a couple of firsts this time around, unlike in previous years where I flew in the day of the show and usually this the booths around noon I flew in a couple days early  to take in the sights and check out some of the pre-show activities.  These would include the press only CES Unveiled and exclusive press only Digital Experience.  Both of these shows were very similar in that there were a limited amount of manufactures there and a HUGE crowd of press people trying to get a sneak peek at the new tech.

The other is that I'm not the only one attending CES from Ninjalane, yep I have staffers helping me out.  Not only is this a great way to cover more ground but it helps the various people I talk to each year understand what Ninjalane is all about.

Of the pre-show activities the Digital Experience show had some of the better stuff on display including a working sample of the new NVidia GF100 video card.  NVidia had a tech demo running to show some of the new technologies built into the new platform.
Of course this is only a single card hooked up to a single monitor so we didn't get to see any of the 3dvision surround.  The hot NVidia item this year is the new Tegra2 processor platform which is more than a mobile processor but a full on mobile/small form factor multimedia system allowing you to play full res HD movies with extremely low power usage.
