I am not at CES this year but I, like every other geek in the world, am watching the announcements with bated breath! So here are some of the things I have found interesting!

The 32 inch View Sonic tablet looks very fun and cool! It is Windows 8 with 10 point multi touch. (Cnet)

Kingston has a 1Tb USB 3.0 flash drive….Is there really anything I can say to make that cooler? (DailyTech)

BuQu Tech announced a magnetizing iPhone 5 charger. I hope they release some for Android too! (i4U News)

There are a few awesome tools for the connected home like the Philips Hue system and the Wemo lighting control system. (Techlicious)

 

Tomorrow I will share what coolness I see;)!

 

Best Buy Take Over

So there are rumbles that big things may be happening for Best Buy. Apparently the founder of Best Buy, Richard Schulze, has announced a $10 Billion take over. With that take over he is talking about changing the entire business model so that they are more competitive with Amazon and the pricing would be the same online or in store. I love that idea!!! I usually order from Amazon unless I need it in my hand ASAP.

This is all still theory because Schulze still needs to put together all his funding. Do you think he have get $8 bill from outside funding?? And if he suceeds, how will this change the tech/gadget store landscape? I am curious to see.
