The year vanilla turned grey

Stockholm/San Jose, Calif. – November 29, 2012: Nearly 50 percent of women have tried bondage with their partner, according to new research from Swedish designer brand LELO. With a total of 19,000 respondents, the first results from the LELO Global Survey have been streamlined to form an entertaining and insightful infographic, documenting feedback from 10,000 women between the ages of 25-50 from eight different countries. Supplemented by LELO sales figures and external research, the results highlight a profound shift in women’s attitudes towards sexual relationships, and a surge in interest for sensual accessories with LELO reporting 400 percent growth in certain categories.

CES 2009 - Nyko

img_2298-lanoc-reviews-smallIf you don't own a Nyko Wiimote charge station you probably know someone who does. The charge station is the highest selling third party peripheral in North America. Because of that I would be really surprised if you didn't know who Nyko is or why I was excited to see what they are up to. I wasn't surprised to see a charge station at our meeting, but the one I was looking at had a few small changes. What I saw had updated batteries and a gauge to show you how charged your Wiimote's are. I was happy to hear that this will not be a new model but rather a on the fly update to the current model. It is good to see that they aren't planning on just letting things ride, they are going to continue to update all of their products as needed to stay competitive in the market.

CES 2009 - Psyko

psyko_id_pressIn the headset world, it is hard to make a product that stands out. Psyko Audio Labs introduced there 5.1 headphones at CES this year. Apparently, they stood out enough for CES to give them there "Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award". I took a few minutes to look and listen while I was at CES.

CES 2009 - Buffalo

img_1856-lanoc-reviews-lanoc-reviews-smallRunning from booth to booth and meeting to meeting, I did find the time to stop by the Buffalo suite to check out what's in store for the next year from them. I was excited to hear that they were going to bring back there wireless products. There wireless products were very popular in the modding community due to their ability to be flashed with DD-WRT. I sat down with a few people from Buffalo I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by very down to earth people who just want to get the word out that they are back in the wireless market. They had a whole selection of interesting products that I found interesting.

CES 2009 - Razer

img_1726-lanoc-reviews-lanoc-reviews-smallIn my travels around CES I saw countless different designs for keyboards and mice. I set out to find a booth from our friends over at Razer, counting down to CES they were really hyping up an upcoming product that they would announce the first day of CES. Razer decided to skip out on the booth this year and instead had a meeting room. It wasn’t hard to find the Razer meeting room considering it was fully covered in black and green designs. I went inside and meet up with Nicholas Depalmer, you might remember the name from our “Interview with a gamer”.

ioSafe starts CES on fire

img_1527-lanoc-reviews-lanoc-reviews-smallMy first meeting of the week was with a company called ioSafe. IoSafe designs and manufactures disaster proof storage solutions. They aren't new to the scene having been around for the past 4 years with a focus on business grade products. This year at CES they are introducing a new line of personal products for the average consumer.  With the promise of 1500 degree flames and 10,000 gallons of water to try to kill a hard drive I signed up with some excitement. I scheduled my meeting with ioSafe in the evening to get the chaos of CES started. For some reason they wouldn't allow ioSafe to do their torture tests in the convention center so they rented out a house just off of the strip. I was picked up in a nice Limo directly from our hotel and driven out to their house. On the way there I had a lot of time to talk shop about ioSafe's decision to jump into the personal market with their "Solo" model, along with more details on how they where able to keep the hard drive cool while it's running but protecting it from fire and water any other time.

CES 2009 - Coolermaster

img_2027-lanoc-reviews-smallOur good friends at Coolermaster decided to forgo the trouble of having a booth at CES this year and instead go all out with a suite in one of Vegas's famous hotel casinos. The money saved not having a booth they were able to pickup the penthouse suite in the Palms hotel. They invited both my wife Alex and I to their CES party on top of our scheduled meeting. We showed up to their party late after a long first day walking the CES floor. Even though I had an upset stomach and a head ache I made it anyway. When you get invited to a penthouse party in Vegas you can't turn that down, lol. Once we got there I noticed right away that the view was amazing. After being introduced to all of the important people from Coolermaster USA they gave us a tour of their current and upcoming products.  The following pictures were taken the next day at my meeting; I didn't have the camera when we came to the party.

CES 2009 Day -2

After taking flight delays due to ice in Dallas (ice in Dallas, WTF?) we made it to our hotel really late Monday night. After unpacking and finding something to eat it was time to get some rest. With a day before any CES activities to do we had a chance to meet up with my step brother and to hit the strip. After a short walk we ended up in a Denny's to get something to eat, apparently being a Denny's on the strip means you can get away with having rude and shity service. Having experienced what I can only imagine is the worse service on the strip we decided to go back to the hotel and hit the Casino floor and to check out the shows. To get the full Vegas experience without breaking the bank we hit up the penny slots. It turns out Alex is very lucky (I guess she does have me, proof that she is lucky) winning back almost all of my losses on the slots. Considering her apparently addictive personality (WoW anyone?) introducing her to gambling may come back to bite me in the future lol. I heard from Tania from Razer and we decided we would all meet up someplace on the strip. Without a car we just started walking. This is the point where I can say that I wish I sometimes thought about things more, instead my feet are paying for my ignorance.  We did make it all the way to the other end of the strip. We stopped at the Harley Davidson Café and hung out with Tania from Razer, I would like to thank her on here also for the wonderful dinner! (hey look Tania I can use an explanation point :-P). We also learned that not all of the service on the strip is bad. Finishing up our trek down the strip there was no way we were going to be able to walk back without my feet falling off. We decided to "Ride the Deuce", the Deuce is a two story city bus that only runs the strip. As it turns out my past experiences and assumptions with the bus can't be applied to the Deuce. This is the most high tech bus I have ever seen and frankly it is so clean that its hard to believe that its ever been used. That caps off our CES -2 day, you can find a full gallery of pictures HERE, stay tuned for more. img_0968
