The Motorola Razr was undoubtedly the phone of the mid-2000s. It was a tantalizing vision of the future that featured a super compact body with slick metallic keys and two freaking screens.

The Totally Unofficial CES 2019 Meta Awards The Totally Unofficial CES 2019 Meta Awards

Every year, CES sets the stage for all the wild, wonderful, and boundary-pushing tech we expect to see later in the year.

The First Bendable Phone Is an Exciting Piece of Junk

Back in November, just days before Samsung teased its flexible display phone, Royole burst onto the scene with the Flexpai, the world’s first bendy phone. Sadly, demos were held in San Francisco, and I was in New York. By the time I found out, there simply wasn’t enough time for me to get there.

At some point, Acer is going to have to give up its yearly quest to make the Swift 7 just a little bit slimmer, but that time hasn’t come yet, because at CES 2019 Acer has once again triumphed over physics to create something stupendously skinny.

I don’t have my swim trunks or my flippy-floppies, and there aren’t any dolphins anywhere, but you can’t stop me ‘cause I’m on a boat.

Google Is Blitzing CES with a Literal Rollercoaster Full of Google Assistant Tech Google Is Blitzing CES with a Literal Rollercoaster Full of Google Assistant Tech

OK, it’s a small coaster, but after a couple years of attending CES, between the Google vending machines, the Google-branded monorail, and a bunch of new features for the Google Assistant, it feels like Google is flexing on the world’s biggest trade show in a way it never has before.

Dell Might Have Just Perfected the XPS 13 Dell Might Have Just Perfected the XPS 13

Dell’s XPS 13 has been one of the best ultraportable laptops on the market for years now. It’s sleek, it’s stylish, and it’s often cheaper than an equivalent Mac. But recent models have had one glaring flaw: a webcam located below the screen that made you look like Shrek every time you used it.

It wasn’t too long ago that any phone priced around $100 would be a complete joke. And while Alcatel’s most recent attempt at making a phone that cheap still had some hiccups, the next version of the budget-friendly 1X looks like it’s taking some big steps to fix its mistakes.

The Asus ROG Mothership Is an Overpowered Surface for Gamers The Asus ROG Mothership Is an Overpowered Surface for Gamers

When I heard Asus was bringing a laptop called the Mothership to CES 2019, I knew I had to see it. Actually, calling it a laptop doesn’t quite do this thing justice, because it’s one part 2-in-1, it’s one part gaming machine, it’s loaded up with more RGB lights than a UFO, and I absolutely love it.
