[CES 2013] Closing Out This Year's CES Coverage: The Best, The Worst, And Everything In-Between

Another CES has passed, and with it comes clearer understanding of what's on the tech product horizon in the coming year. If I were to sum it up in a simple list? Touchscreens, 4K, and washing machines.

And that's the reason I stand by the proposition that this year's show wasn't very good. But, let's save that for the end. CES is still the most important tech show in the world, it's still massive, and there's still a metric crapton of stuff unveiled at it every year.

Dropbox App Updated To Version 2.3 With Better Photo Management And UI Tweaks

Dropbox is the clear king when it comes to consumer cloud storage solutions. The app has gone through a number of significant overhauls during its life on the Android platform, and it's a solid experience these days. However, there's always more work to be done, and today's update brings several welcome improvements to how photos are handled, as well as various fixes and UI tweaks.

[CES 2013] Hands-On With The Archos TV Connect And Archos GamePad (Videos)

If you follow Archos, you probably know the French tablet-maker's product formula by now: "cheap and usable." This is a strategy that has allowed the company to expand its product line greatly over the last year, and to branch out into less familiar territory. In particular, the recently-announced TV Connect and Gamepad are two devices unlike anything Archos has made previously.

TV Connect

The TV Connect's purpose is quite simple: you have Android running on your TV, with a TV-remote-meets-gamepad style controller.

3 Reasons To Be Excited For NVIDIA's Project Shield - And 3 Reasons Not To Be

Like a lot of you, I watched NVIDIA's press conference with my jaw firmly on the floor when Project Shield was unveiled. It's a true Android gaming portable, built from the ground up to make a great gaming experience - not a phone or a tablet that also plays games, with varying degrees of efficiency, like Sony's now outdated Xperia Play or Archos' Gamepad. And it's made by NVIDIA, the company with the most to gain by expanding the platform's gaming horizons.

[Update: It's Back] 'GameStick' Is Now The Subject Of An Intellectual Property Dispute And Has Been Suspended From Kickstarter

Remember GameStick? Well, it was just removed from Kickstarter as a result of an intellectual property dispute. That in itself means Kickstarter is legally obligated to "remove the project from public view until the process is complete or the dispute is resolved," which has been done. That doesn't necessarily mean that the project has been cancelled just yet – GameStick has 30 days to resolve the issue.
