After 2-3 years of never shipping the Azentek Atlas, Azentek is taking a more conservative approach to launching product. They were planning on showing their single din car computer here at CES, but have decided to hold off until it becomes available for sale. Azentek also got car computing some exposure on good morning America.
Check out our video for more details.

With all the hype around wireless charging, we really expected more. Before you throw out your chargers and wires, watch this video.

Immersion has licensed their force feedback technology to several vendors. We give touch screen force feedback a test run.
We promised to write about a few eccentric things.
Monster cable was kind enough to invite us to their party and share the entire CES press list with everyone who is here. Thanks! This will come in handy at some point. Everyone from the Wall Street Journal, ABC and Toms Hardware Guide have all been virtually introduced. Erick from Monster Cable signs his e-mail as "social media Monster". What a great title!
I figured a thank you was in order for these wonderful introductions. Replying to all choked my dual core 2 ghz macbookpro and crashed my iphone mail app. Yes!

Subject: CES: Come to Monster Cable's digital media party!
Are you at CES? Have you finished your work for the day? Monster wants YOU! Come to our party tonight. Entertainment from Dj Irie. Surprise celebrity guests. Food. Drink!
This is a casual, no-work party. Monster wants to get to know you and vice versa. No need to RSVP, though it would be great to know if you are coming to ensure we have enough booze.
WHERE: Paris Hotel. Empire Louis Suite 3395P. Las Vegas. Nevada. North America. Planet URF!
WHEN: 10:00PM Thursday night at CES
WHO: We'll have some celebrity guests stopping by (you know Monster is much beloved by performers, right?)
WHAT: Food. Open bar. Meet our product managers. Ask them questions. Get them drunk and ask them questions.
Sorry for the spam folks, this will be our last message on this matter. We hope CES has been a successful one for you so far and will continue to be. Let's bring in 2009 RIGHT!
