CES 2008: What You Missed So Far

CES 2008: What You Missed So Far

We arrived at CES yesterday, and despite being separated into bloggers and press, and watching the game in standard def, we’ve had a great time so far. If you’ve missed the coverage, let’s catch you up to speed:

• After Warner’s announcement, HD DVD won’t be attending CES this week, a fact that only looks worse after they put their logo on the press bags. Adding insult to HD DVD’s injury, New Line Cinema also joined the Blu-ray exclusive crew.

• WowWee showed us three robots aiming to attack AIBOs, Robosapiens and autonomous helicopters everywhere. The only thing missing was a robot to bring us beer. Luckily, Inter Active Toy covered that with the RC Cooler.

• Other good finds included the Celestron SkyScout Scope, Cobra’s OLED radar detectors, and an in-dash CD player for audiophiles. On the GPS front, Magellan’s 5340 with built-in Google local search and Garmin’s 880 with voice recognition stood out the most. Finally, Logitech unveiled a whole bunch of stuff, including a networked music player, a sleek set of speakers, and an IR remote with capacitive touch.

So far, so good, CES. We’ll be looking forward to the press conferences today, and the floor opening on Monday. Until then, keep up with all of our CES 2008 coverage to date.
