Welcome to 2017 – CES starts this week and we are pretty excited about what we might see
- I am SO hyped for HoloLens and that 3rd parties Lenovo, ASUS and ACER are making them. And the cost $300!!! Story on slashgear.com
- I will buy a hololens for many reasons but this is right up there. HoloLens could help you find your keys

- Phones (more than just phone really right?)
- T-Mobile is teasing a January 5 announcement, revealing “What’s Next” in its continued efforts to shake up the industry. CEO John Legere promises this is a big one, so stay tuned.
Self Driving cars, VR, Drones, wearable tech, wireless everything, the internet of things, robots and more
- In the near future, I expect that we’ll see more viable external GPU docking stations that’ll allow a run-of-the-mill laptop to become your gaming mega-beast.
PS4 can sure make a cool hype video To celebrate the New Year, Sony today released a new sizzle reel that shows off some of the “unmissable” games coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR in 2017.
We usually save football for later, but come on man! – it is the Playoffs now!!
