At an event like CES, business cards flow like water rushing from the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and managing them can be a challenge. Rubbermaid has brought to market an improvement to their CardScan line, a portable business card scanner that makes importing the contact information from business cards a snap. Heck, it even prints labels and postage. Check the video for the full scoop.
At CES we caught up with Microsoft’s Marlowe Dayley to chat about the Windows Live group of services. We take a look at Windows Live across the board, focusing on Mail, Maps, Live Search. Ever wonder how they were able to capture all that 3D data for their maps? We find out in this episode.
We talked to Garmin about their new Astro 220 Dog Tracking GPS system at CES, and walked away pleasantly surprised at just how well thought out this system truly is. You can track your dog when it’s out of sight, and the handheld portion of the device will even tell you if the dog is sitting, running, or even jumping.
Pantone, the industry leading expert in color was in full force at CES showing off their Huey. The Huey is a consumer oriented color correction device for computer monitors. Color correction and calibration is important for photographers pro and novice alike to ensure that the photos they edit on their computer end up looking true to life and printing accurately.
The Huey is a first in the sub $100 for color calibration. Many other solutions for color calibration exist today, but most are in the $250+ range and aimed directly at professionals. Check out the video for a full demo.
Eclipse showed off their new in-car stereo and navigation system, the AVN 2210p, which rocks a removable TomTom navigation system. While docked in the car, the TomTom One serves as the screen for a fully featured CD and MP3 entertainment system while it charges. The TomTom One provides turn by turn voice navigation and features TomTom standard map software. When you have reached your destination you can remove the TomTom One from your dash, and have a portable GPS navigation system to get you from your car to local shops and attractions.
Check out the video for a full demo of the AVN 2210p and pricing and availability.
