iida Polaris: Phone meets robot

While Sony's Rolly is about as useful as, well, a tiny dancing robot, at least iida's Polaris concept doubles as a cellphone plus dock. Beneath the enormity of the flowery product page rests little in the way of specs -- it is just a concept after all, developed in partnership with Flower Robotics. The robot features "learning functions" to monitor your physical condition and suggest recipes and exercise. Failing that, it can also suggest possible medical intervention. The longer he's with you the more attune he is to your well-being. Perfect -- when we're old and infirmed at the end of days, our personal Polaris can represent us at the government mandated death panel.

The New Thinkpad Keyboard with better design and lower price

Just what we want, Lenovo says people mostly wanted the exact same feel as their ThinkPad laptop keyboards in the desktop unit (no surprise there), but almost no one wanted wireless, a number pad or a trackpad -- so the new model pictured above is more or less a faithful wired replica of the T400s board, right down to those liquid drainage holes. What's more, cutting the numeric keypad and trackpad allowed the company to reduce the price by $40, so this little slice of hotness is not just $60. Not bad, but we'll be honest -- we'd still throw down for a wireless version of the old UltraNav in a heartbeart.

Sony adopts Chrome as default browser for VAIO online

Google's Chrome was already the default browser on the VAIO NW, and now the Financial Times delivers confirmation of a wider distribution deal between the search giant and Sony. According to the report, new VAIO laptops and desktops will come with Chrome preinstalled -- an "experimental" arrangement and, most importantly, will default to Google for both their homepage and search queries. Pair this with the agreement to bring over a million Google books to Sony's e-readers, and you start to see some clear lines being drawn in the sand. Intriguingly, Google is said to be pursuing similar distribution pacts with other manufacturers, which would place Internet Explorer's stranglehold on the uninitiated user under threat.

CES 2009: The Best Gadgets In 2009

Panasonic introduces 103-inch Plasma Monitor.The combination of advancements in Plasma production technology and the tremendous worldwide success of the Panasonic 103-inch Plasma HD Display over the last two plus years have enabled us to increase production as well as efficiencies, and thereby make it available to a wider range of customers at a lower price point. When our 103-inch Plasma first debuted, it was a made-to-order product. It soon became obvious that in ultra-large screen sizes, nothing comes close to the Panasonic 103-inch Plasma in delivering crisp, clear, blur-free images in 1080p High Definition. Demand for the 103 exceeded our initial expectations, and its popularity continues.

The Panasonic 103-inch plasma display has been installed in the U.S. including NBC Network’s Sunday Night Football studio, CBS Network’s The Early Show set, The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s Inventors Hall of Fame (Alexandria, Va.) and other locations.
