Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx revealed yesterday that his department has no plans for national regulations around autonomous cars.
The design of Lenovo’s convertible Yoga laptops has stayed more or less the same since convertible laptops first became a thing, but the company has been tweaking and changing to try and find the ultimate form of what’s meant to be the ultimate portable computer.

Full-fat Windows tablets are taking their sweet time catching on with the general public, but if you’re not pulling the trigger because they aren’t quite versatile enough, Lenovo’s master-of-all-trades Thinkpad X1 could be the ticket.
Soundbars aren’t normally the go-to option for crazy immersive surround sound, but a Samsung-Dolby partnership is hoping to change that. Using a pair of rear speakers, a soundbar and the ceiling of your den, Samsung’s trying to recreate the 3-D feeling of a Dolby Atmos cinema.
Yeah, it’s always been a gadget orgy in the middle of the desert. But every year, what matters at CES is always a little different. And while there’s always plenty of bullshit to weed through, CES is still an accurate barometer for what to expect from technology in the year ahead.

This was my seventh year I've covered CES, and after the first day on the show floor I was ready to wash my hands of the whole spectacle for good. Then I went to the Sands, and all of a sudden I never wanted to leave.
One of the biggest problems with powerful smartwatches is battery life. Who wants to charge their watch every night? But what if your watch was made of modular blocks and you could add as many batteries as you like?

I found this poor, poor over-sized oompa loompa of a man being led down a hallway by his minder in the Las Vegas Convention Center because the tablet attached to his face—which reads "Take a picture with me!"—has rendered him effectively blind.
Razer loves to steal the show. Every CES, there's some crazy new project from the gaming hardware company. Apparently their longtime rival Mad Catz was having enough of that, because they pulled out all the freaking stops this year.

When you wake up exhausted in the morning wondering if it's time to get up and go to work, the last thing you really want is your smartphone's bright display blinding you while you check the time.
