Nvidia x HP Omen 65" 4K HDR gaming display goes on sale in February for $4,999

Exactly one year ago today, Nvidia announced a pretty niche but impressive product at CES 2018. BFGDs (Big Format Gaming Displays) are 65" 4K HDR gaming monitors with a 120Hz refresh rate, and the first is about to go on pre-order for the princely sum of $4,999.

Jabra's new Elite 85h noise-cancelling headphones have Alexa and Assistant built-in

Assistant-powered hardware is a hot commodity; people much prefer "smart" to "dumb" when it comes to speakers and headphones recently. So Jabra's new Elite 85h headphones — which combine Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant support together with all the other accouterments you expect in a pair of noise-canceling headphones — should end up being pretty popular, assuming they sound good.

KitchenAid Smart Display has a 10" display, IPX5 rating, and Yummly

After seeing Google Assistant Smart Displays from Lenovo, JBL, LG, and Google, it's now time for another big electronics maker to join the fray: KitchenAid. Wait, what? OK, see, there's a simple explanation: KitchenAid is owned by Whirlpool. No, still doesn't make sense. Well, Ryne called the Lenovo Smart Display "the best new kitchen appliance since the dishwasher" and our best guess is KitchenAid read that and thought, " Nah, we can do better."

D-Link announces 5G home router plus Google Assistant-compatible water sensor and smart plugs

CES 2019 doesn't officially start until tomorrow, but you wouldn't know it if you checked the tech news today. Announcements have been falling left and right, and we almost missed this one from D-Link, which slipped by on Friday. The company is expanding its smart home offerings and introducing a new 5G home router.

The HP Chromebook 14 is powered by an AMD processor, starts at $269, and comes in white

HP's new Chromebook 14 officially launched this morning, making it one of two AMD Chromebook launches so far during CES. The 14, as the name suggests, is a 14" laptop with an AMD A4 or A6 processor (depending on variant and region), and will start at an extremely reasonable $269. That gets you the AMD A4 processor with a 768p non-touch panel, but I was told that the version with a 1080p touchscreen should come in closer to $300, making it an easy choice for an upgrade.

I had a chance to check it out a few weeks back. The hard, matte plastic exterior gives this laptop a really rugged feeling - it's very confidence-inspiring - and HP says that's to make it attractive to schools (though the Chromebook 14 will be sold in the consumer channel).

Acer's new Chromebook 315 packs an AMD processor, a big 15.6" screen, and starts at $279

Acer announced a rather large AMD-powered Chromebook at CES this morning (as did HP), the Chromebook 315. The new laptop has a 15.6" display and is available with up to 8GB of RAM and an optional touchscreen. The specifications on the base model aren't clear, but we'd guess you're looking at 4GB of RAM and a non-touch display for the bare bones, which Acer says will start at $279 here in the US. That's a pretty incredible price for a laptop with a 15W processor, though it's not clear how the AMD A4 9120C chip stacks up against comparable Intel products.

LG announces its 2019 TV line-up: Google Assistant, Alexa, HDMI 2.1, and two 8K models

CES officially kicks off next week, but if there's anything we know about LG, it's that the company will trickle down 90% of its announcements before the show even begins. We've already seen its three new Google Assistant-powered soundbars and now we're learning about six new TV series for its 2019 line-up, all of which will also have the Google Assistant built in.

[Update: Partnership with TDS Telecom] TiVo could be readying an Android TV box for a CES 2019 unveiling

Given the popularity of TiVo DVR boxes, smart home integration makes a lot of sense. This is something the company addressed nearly a year ago when it announced an IFTTT channel that would enable Google Assistant and Alexa support. With CES 2019 just around the corner, there's evidence to suggest TiVo is going to launch its own Android TV hardware.
