CES dedicated a hall to in-vehicle technology presenters, and many of them brought the wildest cars you've ever seen. These cars sprout LCDs, amps, and speakers on any and every available surface. We took a walk around to find the most outlandish, outrageous cars on display.
Tuesday is only halfway over, and CNET's photographers have already seen a day's worth of excitement from CES, much of it musical in nature. Follow their footsteps in our CES 2008: Day two slide show.
There was a time, only a few months ago, when 15-inch screens were considered gargantuan for digital photo frames. That could soon be considered laughably puny if the likes of Smartparts OptiPix have their way.
The New Jersey company has unveiled a ridiculous 32-inch LCD (shown here) with a 1,366x768 resolution to highlight every wart of its subject. And as if that weren't enough, Gizmag says Smartparts is also trotting out a second high-definition frame that comes with a built-in one-touch printer to provide a hard copy on the spot.
The downside to all this, of course, is … Read more
The gadgets at the International Consumer Electronics Show certainly take center stage, but the huge tech show attracts its fair share of human celebrities as well. Check out the people and the performances that caught our attention in our CES day of photos.
Now that digital photography is a ubiquitous part of family life, digital photo frames are emerging as a hot new device for displaying and sharing memories. Not only can you set a frame to run through a dynamic slide show, but you can send photos remotely to a loved one's frame.
I had a chance to preview three lines yesterday: Kodak, Cevia, and Smartparts. All of them delivered beautiful images and they each have differentiating features that may be a deciding factor for you. … Read more
In recent years Philips has produced some of the better--and most popular--digital photo frames, and the company has announced it's expanding its line of frames to include 6-, 7- and 8-inch models that incorporate technologies "that enhance screen color and contrast for an unparalleled showcase of priceless images."
The press release notes that, "New models leverage RadiantColor, Philips' innovation that extends the color on the edges of a less-than-full-screen photo to the sides of the screen. This alleviates black bars as well as aspect ratio distortion to ensure the best viewing experience, adding new glow to … Read more
With 2008 under way, Power Downloader knew it was time to get back to work. His first order of business would be to sift through e-mails that had piled up over the holidays. After scanning through the messages from various contacts around the world, Power came upon an e-mail from Francois Foto, one of Power's most trusted contacts from France.
After wishing Power Downloader a happy new year, Francois Foto mentioned that one of his new year's resolutions was to use his vast photo library in a some sort of project. One idea he thought of was to … Read more
Smile! Circuit City has the Samsung S730 7.2-megapixel digital camera for $90.99 after an instant rebate. But wait, there's more: Toss the Epson R280 photo printer into your cart and get it free after a $75 mail-in rebate.
The S730 is an ultra-compact model with a 2.5-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and 10 scene modes. I haven't tried it myself, but CNET readers gave it an average rating of 8.3/10. As for the R280 printer, it's a six-color model that promises to crank out borderless 4x6-inch prints in as little as 11 … Read more
The Richter Scales have reposted their "Here Comes Another Bubble" video sans the much-disputed Lane Hartwell photograph of Owen Thomas that they used in the original video without permission and without attribution. Lane has also made a statement:
As the Richter Scales stated in their blog, the video that used my image--without my permission--was viewed just under one million times on YouTube. In the end, the band opted not to work with me toward a fair resolution of the issue. I have to say that I'm very disappointed with the members of the band I negotiated with … Read more
