Savvy: Cure for the Shopping Hangover

Savvy: Cure for the Shopping Hangover

Simple. Effective.

You take a picture of your receipt, if that item goes on sale you get an alert - so you can claim the better price with the retailer.

In 2010, over $20 Billion in price adjustments were left unclaimed - and retailers everywhere thank you for your inattention. Savvy (an app for iPhone or Android) gives you a way to recover money on your purchases, by letting you know that a price change has occurred and allowing you to claim that better price. Over 200 retailers are in the program.

Nvidia Tegra3 Tablets Run Windows 8, Quad Core Processors

Nvidia Tegra3 Tablets Run Windows 8, Quad Core Processors

We check out the new Tegra3 tablets by Nvidia at CES. Amazing little devices, these tablets run Quad-core processing using ARM processors. HD video at 1080p, multi-tasking ability and a lot more.

With the new Windows 8 OS, these tablets look good. You can connect them up to a HDTV and do more from a tablet. Watch video on the TV, while you check out your Twitter on the tablet screen.

The Tegra3 tablet will be out later this year. I might even be mixing down video come CES 2013 using this tablet.

Ford Sync was also updated this year. Five new apps were introduced at CES. They include:

NPR News - Several NPR shows right at your fingertips

Roximity - Personalized, time-sensitive offers when in proximity to a place

Stitcher - Internet radio for mobile

Tune-In - Listen to your favorite radio stations

There is also an app called Sync Destinations, which the location-based service gives you better turn-by-turn directions.

My Ford Touch Improves Menus, Updates Available on All Cars

While at the Ford Booth, we got to see the new updated My Ford Touch system. Back in November, they updated the software so consumers could move around the screen without having to look at the display.

The four corner system gives you a proximity so you know where to press. One corner you will have navigation, another will see temperature settings.

The in-car navigation system also has been improved. With additional 3D view, you can get an idea which direction you are heading

Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine goes through the systems with Bridget on MyFordTouch. Best part is this update is available now. You can download and install, or you can head to your Ford dealer and they will install for free.

Acoustic Research AirPlay Wireless Audio System

posted Saturday Feb 4, 2012 by Guest Blogger

Acoustic Research AirPlay Wireless Audio System

Jeremy from Vox International, representing Acoustic Research, dropped by the TPN studio at the Consumer Electronics Show to talk a little bit about the new AirPlay Wireless Audio System that they introduced at the show. As the name implies, the system is based on iTunes and it allows you to free your iTunes library from your computer or mobile device and stream the audio anywhere in your house.

While there are a number of AirPlay devices on the market, Acoustic Research hopes to separate themselves from the group by, not only their famous name, but also with quality and pricing. Users will be able to tether multiple players together so that they can have them in separate rooms, creating a whole-house audio system.

The box has 10w x 2 for audio power and will be available this April for $129.99. You can learn more from Acoustic Research.
