With all the online purchases, why isn't there a simple USB device to swipe credit cards for online purchases?

But what would be really cool (fantasy part) is a printer that would allow instant shipping, lol.

But I serious about the online credit card reader.

CES 2010 Previews

I picked a few clips from Znet's preview of CES 2010 here:

Small Laptops
With the announcement of Intel’s new Atom N450 processor, the netbook is taking steps toward becoming less than a poor-performing, undersized laptop.

At the same time, expect all the major notebook manufacturers to introduce laptops with ULV – that’s ultra-low-voltage — processors in them, which offer more performance than the Atom, great efficiency (and thus battery life), and a small footprint, allowing systems to be quite thin in form factor.
3D HDTV
Since CES places such prominence on the home theater segment of consumer electronics, expect to see a number of big-name TV manufacturers placing renewed emphasis on 3D tech for the home. What that means: bigger sets, sales of sophisticated 3D glasses, 3D boxes and a whole lot of (likely overpriced) HDMI cables. Now that the technology has been available for awhile, prices are pushing down — meaning you can soon buy an 82-inch 3D HDTV for less than $2,999.

Mophie iPhone Credit Card Reader

Comes with creditcard reader and app to process credit cards.

Mophie iPhone credit card reader coming to a CES near you -- Engadget
Wooo, I could see some abuse going on with that credit card reader. Imagine if it fell into the wrong hands or got hacked some how. How secure is CDMA or wifi signals anyway? It could take credit card theft to a whole new level. Scenario: someone could grab a credit card off a restaurant table, swipe it, and put it back down in less than 15 seconds. Would make for some quick money.

HTC-Google Tablet might be at CES 2010?


A possible look at the Google Tablet at CES 2010? Still waiting to see if the Apple iSlate will be coming out too. I've long wondered why computer makers haven't made laptop screens touchscreens yet.

So, HTC and Google are apparently working on a product to counter a product that hasn’t even been released yet, but such is the power of Apple.
HTC and Google to release an iSlate Killer at CES 2010?!

Trip has a great discussion here on Mobile DTV at CES: http://www.dtvusaforum.com/mobile-dtv/16588-mobile-dtv-ces.html

but I wanted to add this from Broadcast and Cable too,

An array of new portable devices with tiny mobile DTV receiver chips embedded in them, including cellphones, USB dongles, an LG personal DVD player and a Dell netbook, will be demonstrated at CES in the Mobile DTV TechZone in the central hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, near the Samsung and Panasonic booths.

“You're going to see a whole ton of stuff at CES,” says Raycom Media CTO Dave Folsom.

The TechZone is being sponsored by the Open Mobile Video Coalition, a consortium of more than 800 stations that has been driving the development of the mobile DTV standard over the past two years. It will be supported by live mobile DTV broadcasts from OMVC member stations.

Interactive TV is a hot trend? That's going to require some more bandwidth for cable/satellite providers. Will OTA be providing interactive content anytime soon?

Good question. I don't think it's possible really. It would require homes to transmit data somehow back to broadcasters somehow. Unless TV's had some way of connecting to the internet and transmit the data that way.

3D Blu-ray Players


Here's one of the many 3D Blu-ray Players that cnet reviewed.

Panasonic DMP-BDT350

Panasonic is one of the major players in the new push to 3D and the company announced its first 3D Blu-ray player at CES 2010.

Panasonic didn't announce it in the press release, but when we took a tour of the booth we noticed that the DMP-BDT350 features dual HDMI outputs, which is unique compared with all the other 3D Blu-ray players announced at CES 2010. The reason for the dual ports is to deal with the fact that 3D Blu-ray requires HDMI 1.4, and all existing AV receivers support only HDMI 1.3.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT350 will integrate more easily with existing AV receivers, by sending the high-bandwidth 3D video directly to your HDTV, and the audio to the receiver. Other 3D Blu-ray players will require new HDMI 1.4 AV receivers if you want to use HDMI for audio.

How to See Past the CES 2010 Hype Machine

PCWorld talks about some of the most overhyped products of 2009, comparing them to 2010. I found one particular part of the story interesting,


OLED TVs: The next generation of ooh-I-want-that displays were slated to start hitting retail shelves some time last year. Didn't really happen, though they have started popping up on smaller screens, like the Zune HD and the Google Nexus One. Maybe in 2011. Would you believe 2012?
I've been waiting to see an OLED iPhone for some time now. Hopefully we'll get one this year. :)
