The biggest TVs announced at CES 2019

2 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

If there's one thing that can be relied upon to steal the show at CES year after year, it's TVs. The technology powering the biggest screens in our homes might not move as quickly as it does for smartphones or smart home gadgets, but their sheer size means that it's very impressive when it does.
CES 2019, like every CES for the past half a decade, has been filled with 8K TV announcements. New for this year are models that you'll actually be able to buy, but that doesn't mean you actually should. The amount of native 8K content out there is still frighteningly limited, and it's likely to...

How voice assistants have doomed the remote control

How voice assistants have doomed the remote control

2 monthes ago   |   By TechRadar

If there's one common theme at this year's CES 2019 - the Las Vegas tech expo we've been covering all week - it's talking. Not just chatting on the show floor. By talking we mean the sheer avalanche of devices arriving with support for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and so many other competing voice assistants. In fact, everything from motorcycle helmets, water bottles and phone chargers to doorbells, pianos and toilets at least now has the option of being controlled by voice.
So is the remote control being killed-off?
In the long-term, absolutely. It's gone. “Getting rid of the remote...

5G handsets were at CES 2019, but smartphones weren't driving the agenda

2 monthes ago   |   By Pocket-lint

Ask any tech commentator in late-2018 what they expected to see at CES 2019 - the Consumer Electronics Show held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada - and the answer would have most certainly of included 5G. The move to next-gen wireless connectivity is something that companies like Qualcomm have been talking about for a couple of years, but, having launched the Snapdragon 855 platform a month earlier, and announced the X50 modem as far back as 2016, its announcements at CES 2019 focused on automotive partnerships and other areas of development. Sure, there was a lot of talk about 5G around the...

USB-C is still a long way away from achieving its potential, but at CES this year, we started to see what a richer USB-C future might look like. We saw “portable” monitors that were able to take both video and power from a connected laptop, we saw docks featuring all of the connectors that have been stripped from USB-C laptops, and, of course, we saw USB-C headphones.
Getting everyone on the same page when it comes to USB-C adoption has somehow proven to be exceptionally challenging, whether it's popular products that refuse to ditch Micro USB or others that have plunged us into dongle...
