CES Part II; A Trade Show Goers Guide; Apple Woes; Google Doodles

CES The Return: I’m still in Las Vegas where I have seen some stuff, everything from a foldable phone to an iPhone case that doubles as a drone. I boxed, rode a pair of smart roller skates, and hugged a robotic cat tale. I even took folks on a walking tour of the buzzy, start-up filled Eureka Park. And I’m still not done. One more day wandering the halls and wondering who I can pay to carry my backpack. Follow along on Twitter.
A guide. It’s probably too late for you to make your way to CES, but for next year, here’s a little honest guidance about how to navigate the sprawling event.
An Expert’s Take on the Best Way to Do CES – The Upgrade – Medium
Apple woes. There’s a new report claiming that Apple is again cutting production on iPhones. Normally, I’d simply ignore this kind of rumor, since they tend to be exaggerated or plain wrong, but we’re in a post-Apple-earnings-warning period, where more uncertainty than normal is spinning around the Cupertino tech giant. I can tell you with a high-degree of certainty that the company will be fine, but I do expect Apple to make some adjustments throughout 2019 to ensure a brighter 2020 and beyond.
Apple is reportedly cutting iPhone production by 10% between January and March
A real gaming rig. Dell’s Alienware is known for making excellent gaming desktops and laptops with some distinct differences: the desktops are more powerful and always user-upgradeable. The laptops are less powerful and are pretty much stuck with the components they came with. At CES 2019, Alienware is changing the rules with Area-51m, a 17.3-inch desktop-class-component-supporting portable rig that also allows for upgradeability that rivals a desktop.

Some doodle. Thanks to some adorably creative doodling skills, Six-year-old  Sarah Gomez-Lane is headed to college – someday. The grade-schooler recently won a $30,00 scholarship from Google’s yearly Doodle competition with her dinosaur-filled sketch. However, Google took the whole thing further and enlisted Gomez-Lane to assist them on animating her artwork. If you visited Google yesterday, you saw the finished product.

TV Wall. The full-wall TVs of sci-fi fantasy are finally becoming reality. At CES 2019 Samsung introduced a 98-inch 8K display. That’s a lot of eye-popping clarity. Now we just need thousands of dollars, a room big enough to support it, and some 8K content to watch on it
