Three things I saw at CES that I did buy

LAS VEGAS - So I pretty much wrapped up my visit to CES 2013, and you know what? I liked it. Most of my fellow bloggers and journalists will tell you that it is a crowded, noisy, soul-sucking waste of time with nothing good to see, but I discovered pretty cool stuff this week.

I actually buy stuff, actually. And as most of you know, it takes a lot for me unload my credit card from my wallet. Here are three things I saw at CES that I am eager to have:

1. Archos FamilyPad

The ESC is a sea of ​​tablets, most difficult to distinguish from each other. The Archos Android FamilyPad caught my attention with its ginormous 13.3-inch screen, which means it is not really designed to be portable, but a tablet that lives on the kitchen counter or sitting on knees television. (Heck, it could be the TV.)

I looked, I liked, and then I waited for the bad news. Certainly, a tablet of this size would cost $ 500-600. But guess what? It is $ 299. This is less than the price of an iPad. Or 10-inch Google Nexus. The display resolution may be a bit anemic at 1280 x 800, but it does not seem to be an IPS screen, and to me it seemed quite dazzling.

My colleague Dave thought I was crazy, but I was totally in love with the idea of ​​a "big ol 'family' tablet, especially with such an attractive price. $ 299! It comes in February.

Archos actually had a couple of other winners on the screen, including the 8-inch Archos tablet Platinum 80 (also coming in February) for $ 199 and the 7-inch tablet for $ 169 GamePad. I tinkered with it and I found really, really cool.You how you never sync cable when you need it? The ChargeCard solves this problem: just paste it into your portfolio.

Primarily made of rubber and almost exactly the size of a credit card, the ChargeCard (originally a Kickstarter project) sport or a microUSB connector or 30-pin connector and a USB iDevice on a flexible arm rubber.

You can use it to charge and / or sync your device. The production sample gave me worked like a charm with my iPhone 4S, and rode all day in my portfolio without significant added space.

The ChargeCard is currently out of stock for 3-4 weeks, but you can order one now for $ 25 - and save $ 2 if you are ready to tweet about it.

I hate having to pack along the cables wherever I go. For me, owning a ChargeCard is a no-brainer. Sold.Solving another iDevice problem, the dongle connects to ChargeDr a laptop USB port and somehow stimulates the current so that you can charge your iPad (or other tablet).

This is kind of a big problem, because most USB ports can not run more than one battery recharge from the tablet. I tested with my ChargeDr iPad 3 and the suction cup actually works. And according to Digital Innovations, he will also accelerate compressed load when used with a wall or car charger. Works with phones, too.

Expect to pay $ 29.99 when ships dongle in March.

I was also quite amazed by Nvidia Grid, which flowed from the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II to an Android tablet (and can do the same just about any platform), where he looks absolutely beautiful. But this is not something you can actually buy at the moment. Maybe one (sorry) game changer on the road, however.

So, yes, the ESC was pretty fun this year. Have you ever heard of anything else new that you're dying to buy?
