As mentioned elsewhere on Manolith, the Consumer Electronics Show kicked off in Las Vegas this week. With the economy on the road to recovery there are big hopes for this year’s show and the tech companies are bringing their A game. CES has always been the coming out party for the hottest new technology and this year is no different. Several long anticipated items are being unveiled this week and Manolith is here on the floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center to bring you an advanced, hands on look at the new gadgets you’ll be drooling over for the next 12 months.
Google Nexus One
Officially announced this week after years of rumors and speculations, Google’s new mobile phone is ready to take on the iPhone for the title of undisputed king of touch screen smartphones. CES is the first chance for the masses to smudge up the Nexus One’s gorgeous 3.7 inch touchscreen so it’s on everyone’s must see list. The first thing you notice about the Nexus is how well it fits in the–
Holy Shit! Did You See All This Porn?!
Guys! The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is right down the street at the Sands Expo Center! It’s the largest adult entertainment event in North America! Why are we looking at these lame ass phones when we could be watching live female oil wrestling brought to us by Slick Chix at Booth #5059?
Yes, the big porn convention always happens the same week as CES, but let’s try to focus. We’re here to talk about technology and one of the hottest items of the last year has been netbooks: small, inexpensive laptop computers useful for basic emailing, twittering, web surfing away on the go. These little guys made up 10% of all PC shipments in 2009 and are only expected to be more popular in 2010. One of the most anticipated items in this category debuting at CES is Lenovo Group’s new “Smartbook” Skylight. Smartbooks are essentially smartphone/netbook hybrids. They’re shaped like very small laptops (5-10 inches), but built on the same architecture as smartphones allowing them all day battery life and 3G connectivity. In my brief hands-on demo I found the Skylight a breeze to use. The linux based OS is fast and–
Seriously! There is so much porn over here!
Dudes! They have mechanical bull riding except instead of a bull, it’s a seven foot long wang! That’s hilarious! We’ll probably get to see some girl’s boob accidentally pop out of her shirt. Are any girl’s boobs going to pop out while they’re testing the latest bluetooth headset? Probably not unless they are using it very, very wrong. Plus, there’s live appearances from just about every porn star in the business. Man, CES is lame as hell. AVN is where it’s at.
Can you just please try to be professional about this? Every year the AVN convention happens at exactly the same time as CES and every year everyone freaks out about all of the half-naked women. I’m sick of it! For once let’s be adults about this and do the job we came here to do! Okay?! No porn talk, just serious technology journalism!… The Specifications for Blu-Ray 3D were finalized late last year and some of the first Blu-Ray 3D compatible players and TVs are being previewed at CES this year. With “Avatar” raking in–
“Avatar”? Are you kidding me? Do you think anyone will care about the “Avatar” 3D Blu-Ray when they’ll be able to buy 3D Blu-Ray porn? 3D HD Porn? We’ve dreamed about this day for our entire lives and now it’s actually here! Let’s be honest, all of these fancy new smart phones and netbooks and 3D Blu-Ray players are just paperweights unless you have something to use them for, and that something is porn. That’s why AVN and CES happen at the same time every year, because content is king and porn is the king of content.
I feel bad now
That is actually a very good point… I’m sorry I snapped at you. I’ll meet you at the Sands Expo Center. How much does it cost to ride the giant wang?
