Five Must-See Gadgets at CES

You've only got a few hours to kill at the show this year? Here's what you should see with your own eyes, if at all possible. If you can't catch the Seven Wonders of the World, don't miss the Five Wonders of CES.

Sharp's 108-inch LCD (pictured) - The biggest flat-panel TV in the world is no longer a plasma but an LCD, though Sharp's custom-rigged monster has met with some iffy reviews. The 100-inch LCD from LG looks a lot, ahem, sharper.
Asus XG Station - The first ever external video card, designed for letting graphics-limited laptops play high-end 3D games. It works.
SanDisk Sansa Connect - The coolest new MP3 player on the show floor. It takes the wirelessness of the Zune and does it less stupidly: You share files via a subscription to a music service (not yet announced) instead of via an ad hoc network. It's the size of a business card, stores 8GB of tunes, has real-time Internet radio, and more. The SanDisk booth is ridiculously busy, be warned.
LG Total DVD Player - Sure, it's not much to look at, but this $1,200 player that can handle both HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs could be the first shot in the war to end the high-def standards slapfight.
Yahoo! Go - Hey, had to plug the mothership. The Yahoo! Mobile Search stuff is cool, but if you come by the Yahoo! booth, you can get a free ice cream cone, complete with candy mix-ins and everything. It's like a gadget you can eat. Wave to your Yahoo! Tech staff, operating out of the back of the Yahoo! booth

^^^^^^

Yes, I just saw it too. Looks slick, but at $499/4gb/2yrs it's a bit pricey, but if one is a gadget geek, probably a must have.

Macworld 2007: iPhone at Last!

While 99 percent of the tech world is sleeping off its collective hangover at CES in Las Vegas, a tiny but very important minority can be found in foggy San Francisco, where Steve Jobs has just announced the latest goodies to come from Apple Computer.
Speculation has run rampant over the last few months since Jobs' last affair, with predictions ranging from iPod phones to high-definition TVs with Apple branding. Here's what actually went down, starting with the big news that people will be chatting about for weeks to come.
Apple iPhone
Despite trademark concerns, it really is going to be called the iPhone, and here it is. An all-new interface makes this slim rectangle completely button-free. The whole thing is a touchscreen. 4GB or 8GB of storage inside for your music. Cingular EDGE (no 3G service!) for your phone calls. Wi-Fi. It actually runs Apple's OS X and can do all manner of "smart phone" tasks...which is either going to be very cool or extreme overkill for people who just wanted a phone that could also play music. How long will it be before we start getting emails with a "Sent from my Apple iPhone" tag at the bottom of them? (Yahoo! Mail is included on the device, by the way, along with all manner of internet capabilities.)
Other features include a 2-megapixel camera and a standard iPod jack. It's also crazy slim at under 12mm in thickness. Wanna watch a movie? Just flip it on its side and you have a nice widescreen display. No keyboard: A virtual one pops up when you need it. We'll see how well that works over time.
There are so many other features on this phone that I could easily do a gigantic five-part post on the thing. $499 or $599 depending on storage. Arriving in June.
AppleTV
Formerly known as iTV, Apple's miniature set-top media streaming device is finally coming out. (This was announced last year.) The new product includes component video, an HDMI connector, optical audio, 802.11n networking (which should help with the bandwidth issues I wrote about last time), and a 40GB hard drive. Looks nice! $299.
