CES 2015 begins this week and as most of you know, yesterday and today happens to be press conference day, where all the major companies out there hold press conferences to announce their newest gadgets, phones, tablets, wearables, and so on. So far there have been a few events already and one of those was Nvidia's Press Conference where the company announced their newest superchip for mobile devices called the Tegra X1.
During our announcement the other day about our upcoming Charity stream we also mentioned that we have a couple of Nvidia Shield Tablet packages to giveaway. One of these will be given away during our Charity live stream on TwitchTV which will be happening in the next few days. The other one we are giving away right here on the site and here is how you can enter in order to have a chance to win this package.
So today is the day after Christmas, or in Canada it is also known as Boxing Day where everyone loses their minds trying to score the best deals in stores. In other words it is Canada's version of Black Friday. While this is going on, and we hope our Canadian readers are safe but securing themselves some killer deals, we want to know what everyone got for Christmas this year.
If you hear the term wearable technology, your first thoughts are likely to revolve around the highly publicised Google Glass project. After launching to a mixed reception last year the technology giant are set to release an upgraded version this summer, which includes a slimmer design, a wider selection of frames and an Intel processor.

It’s a little difficult to know where to start when it comes to Android gaming nowadays. We’re no longer limited to simply playing the latest games on our Samsung Galaxy S5 – not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s a damn good device – instead we’ve hundreds of gadgets to sync up taking gaming to the next level.
A few days ago we stumbled onto Cicret which, at first, we thought was just another wearable piece of technology like the Smart Watches we currently have on market. That was until we realized that this little wristband is a whole lot more than a watch with some limited, but cool, functionality. Cicret basically puts a fully functional version of Android right on your skin for your to use just as though it was a touchscreen on a tablet or phone.
On Black Friday Nvidia hosted a sale on their Shield Portable and Shield Tablet products, offering up a pretty decent discount for each one. Well that sale for Black Friday has also now become their sale for Cyber Monday which means if you missed your chance to snag either device while it was on sale last week, you have another chance to do so today.
Black Friday is almost upon us and when that day arrives, the general population of the United States loses their minds and goes on a shopping spree. Of course this is because every merchant puts all their goods on sale with deep discounts. Nvidia is planning to jump in on the action with offering up a Black Friday sale for their Shield Portable and their 32GB LTE Shield Tablet.
