CES 2008 Video: Samsung’s 2263DX Sidecar Monitor

Check the video above for details on ‘s new 2263DX dual monitor setup. The 2263DX features a large display much like the standard displays computer users interact with every day, but also includes a smaller secondary monitor which is mounted on an arm allowing it to be placed above the main monitor or too either of the sides. This secondary monitor allows for short bits of information to be viewed at a glance. Windows sideshow, email account summaries, web video conferencing and other information that is useful to have displayed at all times are ideal for this monitor as they do not take up valuable working real-estate from the main monitor. The main monitor features standard DVI, VGA, and connections, but to simplify connection the smaller monitor is connected via and contains a miniature USB video card.

CES 2008 Video: Sparky gets tasered / Taser MP3 player

When going to one expects a rough week involving countless interviews, hour after hour of writing, and defending oneself from PR reps from round the world. One thing you don’t expect is to get the living daylights shocked out of you. First and foremost, watch the video above for a chance to see me get tasered. After all, it’s hard to pass up an opportunity to see some poor sot get tasered - particularly when they signed themself up for it (full waiver and everything).

Oh yeah, a bit of background - we didn’t go for the ‘shock treatment’ but rather went to check out Tasers new MPH or Music Playing Holster. With this faux-leather device one can carry their original, pink, or leopard skin taser in style and listen to 1GB of tunes at the same time. It doesn’t fully make sense to us, but the Taser company claims this makes it an ideal exercise companion for those jogs through the seedy underbelly of your favorite big city.


CES 2008 Video: AMD on Accelerated Computing

At 2008, ‘s Phil Hester gave us a look at what “accelerated computing” means. AMD is in a unique position with their acquisition of ATi that allows them to fuse the CPU and GPU into one chip, which could potentially provide for an unparalleled computing experience, especially when it comes to gaming.


CES 2008 Video: Dell Crystal LCD Monitor

Design nerds unite - the Crystal monitor, which is available now, could change the way people think of monitors altogether.  Combining great design and great functionality, the Crystal is a 22” solid tempered glass monitor with built in speakers with a maximum resolution of 1680x1050 (um, what?!) and a 2 millisecond response time.

The Crystal features five capacitive touch controls, four speakers, a 2 megapixel webcam and a microphone integrated so well that they’re virtually unnoticeable at first glance.  It’s mounted on a metal tripod and features a single cable with the connections for power, , subwoofer out, and the DVI/ with HDCP.

The CES Engineering & Design Award winning Dell Crystal is available now for $1199.


CES 2008 Video: VoodooPC $22,000 24k Gold Omen AU PC

At ‘s section of ‘s booth, we got a look and some specs about their Elemental series Omen AU, a completely gold-plated PC, covered in 24 karat gold. Sporting the classic Voodoo wiring job and with support for up to triple SLI, the entirely water-cooled, quad-core system seriously rocks. The price tag is enough to by a nice car, however, at $22,000. Only two have been sold thus far, but I imagine Flava-Flav will be calling to have them put one on a chain soon enough.

Sure you’ll need a second mortgage to enjoy this system, but it’s one of the few pieces of technology on the floor you can say will actually increase in value over time. (The price of gold rising dramatically lately.)

Hit the video and see it first-hand, and check out our photo gallery for some up-close pics.

CES 2008 Video: TiVo Desktop 2.6 First Look

takes some time at Digital Experience from to show us their latest iteration of TiVo Desktop, version 2.6.

We talk about availability and what else to expect coming down the pipeline from TiVo in the near future in this video.


CES 2008 Video: HP MTV Artist Edition Notebook features Take Action Make Art winner

A couple of months ago we told you about the HP MTV Take Action Make Art laptop design contest, and we got to speak with the winning designer, Joao Oliveira. We talk to him about his inspiration for the design, how he feels about his artwork appearing on a Limited Edition laptop, and we give you a look at the winning design.


CES 2008 Video: Toshiba’s X205, Qosmio G35 AV690 Gaming Notebooks

was kind enough to show us their full range of -capable laptops. In the video, we go over the Qosmio $3,000 system which features a full screen (and looks simply gorgeous) and HDMI output. You can output in straight 1080p to an HD TV over the HDMI out, to glorious, CEC-compatible result. It’s also the world’s first notebook to include a rewritable HD DVD, which may or may not be terribly relevant given the recent mullings over HD DVD.

When I asked about their impression on that though they said they have absolutely no intent of giving up the fight and very much intend to continue to support the format.

Also check out the video to see the Satellite A205—a $899 laptop with an integrated HD DVD player, though no .
