Lenovo’s ultraportable speaker is as slim and small as your phone

The Lenovo 700 Ultraportable Bluetooth Speaker is quite literally the most portable one ever. Most portable Bluetooth speakers are portable alright, but they aren’t slip-into-your-pocket portable. Audio drivers tend to have depth/thickness to them, resulting in speakers that may be small and lightweight, but are almost always chunky too, making them ideal for laptop bags, but not pant pockets.Lenovo’s latest offering wants to be the kind of Bluetooth speaker you carry around with you, the way ...

CES Deemed 2019 ‘The Year of Voice,’ Meaning We’re Still Years Away From That Reality

It was "the year of mobile"--or more specifically, "the year of mobile telephony," Telefonica reported. What year do you think that was? 2007? 2002? It was 1995. Telefonica's report covers Spain, and it's the earliest reference in Google to that fateful year. The implications of "the year of mobile" foreshadow the coverage of the 2019...

I rode in a self-driving car for the first time at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The car was operated by Yandex, the Google of Russia. If I hadn't been making a point of paying attention to the vehicle's performance, I likely would have forgotten that it was driving without human assistance.   Yandex is the Google of Russia, known for running a search engine that, by some measures, is more popular than Google in its home country.

Hands-on with Ledger’s Bluetooth crypto hardware wallet

French startup Ledger unveiled a new hardware wallet at CES this week. While the device isn’t going to ship until March, the company let me play with a prototype version of the device. The Ledger Nano X feels just like using the Nano S, but on mobile. When the company’s previous hardware wallet first came out, that was before the cryptocurrency boom, before Ledger raised $75 million. And the user experience wasn’t great. You had to install multiple Chrome apps to manage multiple cryptocurrenc...

This one sets itself apart with a big ol’ screen, Famicom compatibility, and a whopping 35-hour battery life.
