Mushkin Unveils FrostByte Heatsink For Blackline And Redline Memory Modules

Mushkin Unveils FrostByte Heatsink For Blackline And Redline Memory Modules[CES 2014] Mushkin has just announced the release of their refreshed FrostByte heatsink for the Blackline as well as Redline memory modules, and you know for sure that these are chock-full of quality. Specially cut from aircraft-grade aluminum, the FrostByte would be the newest model of durability and functionality. It will make use of the spanking new vortex thermal design that will dissipate and control accumulated heat all the while maximizing PC performance.

Having said that, the FrostByte will be an ideal solution for computer enthusiasts and gamers, and you can be sure that the heatsink’s diamond cut design will be able to turn heads. You cannot pick it up just yet though, as the FrostByte heatsink will start to release to the masses from February 2014 onward, on both Redline and Blackline performance memory module offerings. Brian Flood, the Director of Product Development at Mushkin, shared, “What is great about the new FrostByte heatsink is that it allows us to push the limits of our Redline and Blackline memory to new levels while effectively managing heat. Mushkin is constantly innovating to achieve stronger results. The new FrostByte heatsink is just the beginning of what’s to come from Mushkin in our high-performance memory category.” [Press Release]

    Sony Ultra Short Throw Projector: Hands OnIn a corner of Sony’s CES Booth, the company was demonstrating inspirational home electronics like a huge 147-inch projected 4K image, a projected table computer, or innocuous display art on the wall. While everything was interesting, the star of the show was this ultra short throw projector that can project a very nice 147 inch image on a nearby wall, from a distance of about 1 or 2 feet.

    Finsix Debuts Laptop Charger Small Enough To Slip Into Your Pocket

    Finsix Debuts Laptop Charger Small Enough To Slip Into Your PocketLaptop chargers, safe to say, aren’t exactly “portable” in the sense of the word. They tend to be bulky and in some cases, have pretty huge power bricks which means that you will need to bring a bag with you if you want to carry around your laptop and your charger at the same time. However wouldn’t it be cool if your laptop charger was small enough to slip into a handbag or maybe even your pocket? Well that’s pretty much the concept the folks at Finsix were trying to achieve with their portable laptop charger that they unveiled at CES 2014. Granted chargers aren’t exactly the most exciting of technology, but Finsix’s creation let’s us take a look at a problem we didn’t really think needed solving to begin with.

    Through the use of technology they developed at MIT, the company managed to shrink the innards of a regular laptop charger into the gadget you can see pictured above, which upon first glance looks like a smartphone charger. What’s impressive is that the end result is a highly portable, 65-watt power adapter that also comes with a USB port that you can use to charge your smartphone, tablet, or any other USB-powered device at the same time, and given that it is a two-prong setup, it saves you the trouble of searching for a three-prong outlet, which sometimes might not be as convenient. Now the good news is that for the most part, the Finsix charger will be compatible with most laptops, save for Apple’s MacBooks.

    This is because Apple does not license out its magnetic power connector for use with third party adapters, either for safety or proprietary reasons. However Finsix is hoping Apple will have a change of heart down the line. Priced at an affordable $90, the Finsix charger will be available middle of the year with pre-orders taking place in March.

    6.8-inch Hisense X1 Blurs The Line Between Smartphone And Tablet

    6.8 inch Hisense X1 Blurs The Line Between Smartphone And TabletWe have to admit that phones with larger displays are indeed more pleasant to watch videos with and to surface the net with, but at what point do we draw the line and say that’s too big for a phone? Sony attempted to push the limits with the Xperia Z Ultra which featured a massive 6.44” display, but it looks like Hisense is hoping to top that as they have revealed during CES 2014 the Hisense X1 smartphone. Unlike the Xperia Z Ultra with its “sensible” 6.44” display, the Hisense X1 will come with a whopping 6.8” display, making it 0.2” shy of a tablet like the Nexus 7! For those with smaller hands, we expect trying to use the X1 will be something of a nightmare, but for our friends and readers out there with larger hands, perhaps this could be of interest to you.

    So apart from its massive 6.8” display, what sort of specs are we looking at? Well the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and will come with a 13MP camera on the back. The phone will also pack a 3,900mAh battery and thankfully will run on Android 4.4 KitKat, which we guess saves customers the time and worry of whether it will be upgraded to the latest build of Android or not, although the unit that the folks at Engadget previewed ran on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead. Hisense expects to make the X1 available in China first before moving to the US in Q2 2014. Pricing was not mentioned, but what do you guys think? Anyone interested in picking up the Hisense X1 for themselves?

    Archos’ Smartwatch To Be Sold For $50

    Archos Smartwatch To Be Sold For $50Smartwatches are definitely the gadget to keep an eye on for 2014. We have heard the rumors that many companies, such as Apple, could debut smartwatches later on in the year, and during CES 2014, companies such as Archos have unveiled their own offering in the form of a smartwatch that is expected to give devices like the Pebble smartwatch a run for its money. Now if there was any drawback to smartwatches is that for the most part, they tended to be rather pricey and did not come across as value for money. Considering that this is still the teething process of the wearable tech industry, naturally a lot of initial offerings aren’t exactly appealing, although they might be interesting.

    The good news is that if you wanted to hop aboard the smartwatch bandwagon but did not want to pay an arm and a leg to own one, Archos’ offering could just be what you were after as the company has announced that they will be selling their smartwatch for a mere $50. Yup you read that right, for the price of a very nice meal, you will be able to own a smartwatch. Of course Archos’ offering seems more like the Pebble in terms of functionality, as opposed to the Samsung Galaxy Gear which did seem a little over the top. If simple was what you were after, then perhaps this should do the trick.

    Archos expects their offering to arrive sometime in the summer and also expects that they will be introducing more models from now until then with more color options, as well as one with an aluminum casing.
