There were 20,000 products announced at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in the beginning of January. Since there is no way to begin to scratch the surface, I will tell you about a few of the things that stood out.
Power On The Go
Even though todays wireless devices are pretty advanced in their use of thinner cell batteries, they'll still never manage to give you all the power you need in a day especially if you aren't sitting next to an outlet all day. There is a very simple solution to this. The are called a variety of terms, "battery banks" or "power on the go". The bottom line is, you charge them when you are near an outlet and they store the power until you need it. Then you plug your wireless device into it. It's really quite genius and so many people have no idea they exist! They are definitely a best kept secret (that I really want EVERYONE to know about) in the wireless industry. These are a great gift idea for that person you know that has everything...Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation, Birthday, and naturally Christmas/Hannakah!

Summer is that wonderful time of year when you feel the sun on your skin, the flowers are in full bloom and the kids are frolicking in the park. The fact that they are done with school and getting sun and exercise is great but the downfall is that while they are running about footloose and fancy-free, all the valuable information that was fed to them like drinking water through a fire hose throughout the school year, is leaking out like a sieve with every squeak of the swing set.
