Heading into CES 2017, we had a good idea as to some of the big trends we'd see. And we weren't totally wrong — Amazon's Alexa assistant was baked into gadgets everywhere, even in cars!

Razer had some of the coolest tech of CES in 2017. First there was the enormous 17-inch 12K laptop with three screens and enough LEDs to light a small runway.

So were some thieves, who stole at least two prototype samples from Razer's booth during the show.
The new 2017 BMW 5 Series will be like what the new E-Class is for Mercedes, and not just a midsize luxury sedan. The new 5 will be the platform in which BMW will test a ton of new autonomous gizmos.
