The winner of CES week is WWE!

I woke up to ces news the other day that made me actually scream wow to myself. My audible award for ces news of the year goes to WWE!!!! At CES Vince McMahon brought how his all star icons from my generation to taught the future of media. A 24 network all online for $9.99 a month!
I thought deserve a moment to soak it in. From my understanding, the total back catalog of WWE payperviews and specials will be on demand and there will be live programing, like top ten (NFL type) shows, and reality shows. Everything will be online and there will be an app on most consoles and tablet like Netflix.  The best part of all this is...wait for it,,,,,,,all upcoming ppv is included! Wrestlemania in itself can rub close to $60 and that's $120 for a yearly membership!
Why I'm excited.
I shouldn't have to write this but I feel like it haha. If you plan to buy two PPV it pays for itself! If you are willing to pay for a PPV most likely you wish wrestling was on all the time soon once again it is worth it! I remember as a kid me and my friends where excited for Thursday night thunder because we didn't have to wait for Monday , now I feel like the ATT commercial it wasn't that long ago and the kids got it better already (shut up I know I'm in my 30s shhhh). I wouldn't mind paying 10 to relive my glory days .  screaming ooooohhh yeahhh and stomping my feet boring my son telling him to help hulk up!

Big picture
WWE is a powerhouse! I love the big picture of this.. A powerful company steps beyond old cable giants and sell there content themselves. Wrestling knows the young people that grew up from the days when wrestling just wasn't for kids (attitude era ) now have buying power and my wallet is jumping out of my pocket! Now I'm even more excited for other power players with a wealth of back content to deliver to the customers in a different medium. NBA and NFL comes to mind.. This is the a lacarte menus my  generation has been waiting for... I wwant to pay for NFL, NBA, and WWE and then hook up the antenna for the news. There I go day dreaming again.......GOD BLESS

4 things im most excited about from CES so far, CES skimmer

I was looking art the plethora of CES news and if you like me your fingers are going numb from all the scrolling though the webpages for things you actually care about. I decided to post what I am excited about, and more importantly why I am excited about it.

1. Samsung pro tablets - Particularly The 13 in pro tablet caught my eye. The specs are not that unheard of with the quad core processor and 3 gigs of ram, and of course the pen but wow the ui is nice. I am not happy with touch, in fact thats one reason why im running cynogen on my phone but the pro tablet has the magazine style. The pages look like a fliboard almost with productivity page, social networking, and ummmm ok thats not important but it looks good!! What I like the most is the 4 multi screens! Since the screen is huge but the tablet is light, the tablet will be nice for doing work. I like that you can do two instances of the same app. That means I can do two chrome windows up browsing two websites! I do that the most on my pc so this is cool for a tablet.

2. Dish Hopper and Joey - I hate that this is getting more attention. Dish is basically becoming the geeks cable.I strongly want to cut the cord but with offers from Dish they same like a worthy alternative. I heard you can have a virtual joey on the playstation! The most compelling part of the Xbox One is the cable box integration but the Xbox One has pass through, but the PS4 can be that single box that's already smaller than the xbox and giving us a 2 for 1. Playstation can have a sneaky way of being the box to rule them all! Now on a smaller note , I can record 8 shows on the hopper instead of the 4 on Att Uverse.
Wow I actually do run into the problem of recording everything at once because I sometimes record shows so I can show my wife "just this one part" like the old spice commercial with the overprotective moms. The more tech the better,. Oh yeah and the siri like voice remote! wow to much to type!

3. Playstation Now - I am not totally convinced but the potential is awesome. Supposedly you will be able to play legacy sony games over the cloud using the ps4 , Vita , and any other device (i doubt it). Jeff Baklar from cnet claims he felt some lag and it seemed to be tough playing games that need trigger buttons on like the vita. I am excited thinking you can get a ps4 and still be able to play the classics that came out this past year until the Library builds up.
I mean Im not one to hype on the amount of games because we only play one game or maybe 2 at once but I think after buying Last of Us , Tomb Raider, Bioshock , etc.. you don't feel a rush to get ps4 but now gives you the best of both worlds but , then bout time "playstation now" comes out it will be "later"  and more games will be out making the previous statement a mute point. ..

4. The K1 chip. I know this getting blown up to be the best thing since slice bread but this is pretty cool. I have noticed that there has been a plethora of controllers for ios and android devices. Now that it is reasonably expected that customers have a desire to play games with make shift "portable consoles" we just need the hardware to back it up! Nvidia introduced the K1 as an answer. Its a new mobile chip with 192 cuda cores and optional 2 dual core chips included.

The chip will also be able to use the unreal 4 engine. The demo of the face reminded me of a graphical demonstration given by sony at e3. Nvidia claims that chip was much more powerful than its current Tegra 4 and in fact, its capable of being graphically more powerful than the ps3 and xbox 360! Can you imagine playing games like Last of us on your nexus 7 2014 after pulling out your controller from your cargo pants ...
.ooh wait what happen?

Why I care about CES to spot the trends not gadgets

Its that time again when every blog you read is about predictions for CES. Sorry... 
I was thinking about how I am not as excited as I would have been years ago. When I reflect on the year the only things the I reember is the announcements from the individual press conferences. The surface was announced by Microsoft after they publically stated they where not doing a big booth anymore. KitKat, iphone 5s, ipad air, chromecast, ps4 , xbox one, ooya, nexus 7 , s4, note 3, etc was all done in shows outside of CES! Yes it keeps bloggers busy but its much more exciting to get big news through the year rather than extravaganzas in the begging with CES and middle E3. of the year. I don't know what to look forward to. I guess it will just be to understand or discover the latest trends. So lets seee... 
  • Wearable technology - I already heard of a hint from pebble with something big , but the spokesperson was on tnt saying that pebble is an accessory that wants to be simple.. This contradicts "something big" in the teaser. We will see. I am sure a ton of less known companies will make some attempts. I don't care much, unless it can be a company that will start a price war with Google glass. I would love a 500 Google glass. Motorola cheap phones makes me have hope that Google will continue to self subsidize their tech goodies 
  • Cheap phones - speaking of Motorola, I am hoping like Oppo, ZTE, and BLU, the trend continues for cheap phones, now that smart phones are a commodity, consumers can win with common specked smart phones that will also lead to better mobile development , hopefully ending JAVA for once and for all . 
  • streaming sticks - It's a continued race to the tv. Chromecast was hot for a minute but I defaulted to hooking my pc to the computer. I guess I wont airplay type functionality for all my tech not just apple. I see Belkin is taking a step forward but its twice as much! I am still looking for a device even my Grandma heard of. 
I am sure someone on at least Google plus has something I didnt mention. Lets get some good debate.
