Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

CES does not slay the iPad

The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show has seen a range of tablets from Sony, Motorola, RIM, Samsung et al but all are finding it difficult to challenge the dominance of Apple's iPad. Rivals are already playing catch-up, especially after Apple made a bold move to price the iPad at $500. The range of tablets using Google's Android software is a reminder that Apple will not have the market to itself. Highlights at the CES included: 3D and internet TV models; a robotic telescope that automatically aligns itself; a set of video goggles that can capture and share an athlete's field of view on the world; a personal energy generator using kinetic energy; a new, tiny mobile digital TV receiver device for iPad and a robot that gives you a massage.

In the meantime thousands of gamers flocked to Chiba, Tokyo to try out the Nintendo 3D enabled DS console.
