    Oooooh! Trust me. I understand the troubles with Oldsters and tech. In fact it was just this past Sunday morning I got a frantic call from my Dad. Everything on the Desktop of his Win10 computer was changed. It was all big buttons and none of his usual short cuts were there and he was completely lost. It took a little bit, but I finally figured out he somehow switched to Tablet Mode :rolleyes:.

    Could Amazon do a better job at presenting Google glass to the market than Google?

    Well there is a company out there (Vuzix) looking to do that. But this is a pay to play and the cost may be a little more than most are willing to pay. In fact that was what hurt Google and will be what hurts this.

    You want to get people on board then the price needs to be reasonable ($149-$299).

    mainly interested in the 3D camera from HTC. If 3D tech was cheaper will that help with VR?

    My thoughts, yes and no. Yes because it will open up the development to more people which could allow the next bit of innovation and open a potential market.

    No because until we get VR to where you can wear the headset for more than 15 mins without getting headaches then people are not going to really spend enough time to want to experience more content.

    We are an android forum so I might want to throw out the Sony Xperia XA2 (ultra). To me the phone looks a little dated. What happened to our fascination with Sony?

    A few years ago they were the company we were warming up to because they were developer friendly. But I feel like over the years they have continued to slip down the totem. I now have to ask who will Sony be able to market to and how can they change what they are?

    It is amazing that so much came out o CES 2018 and I still am exploring more tech. So expect more posts as I dive into more tech though the past few days that I and others may have missed that came out. This will be a one stop for what all came out over the past few days and their are some concepts that I think can be very useful now (ie the Nissan tech shown in the video above).

    I actually like this one. I might consider it the next time I am in the market for a laptop/tablet.
