Sphero Robotic Ball

Sphero is a robotic ball that can be controlled via Bluetooth through your iOS or Android based devices. You can control Sphero with just a tilt, tap or swipe. You can also customize your Sphero through a built in color app and built-in LED lights can create literally thousands of colors. What's most interesting about the Sphero is that it has an open API system meaning that any developer can create games and apps for Sphero in an open and free platform. So your Sphero experience will change with every new game that's created. Check out the videos from the Sphero website and see the little robotic ball in action.

Sphero will be available for sale in retail and online stores in late 2011 at an estimated retail price of $129.99.

So how much cloud storage are you provided? Everything you need, Amazon will offer you free cloud storage for all Amazon content. Another nice feature is the Whispersync feature which "will allow Kindle Fire to automatically sync your library, last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across your devices. On Kindle Fire, Whispersync extends to video. Start streaming a movie on Kindle Fire, then pick up right where you left off on your TV - avoid the frustration of having to find your spot."

Prime members will have access to over 100,000 movies and TV shows, a built-in email app to stay connected and you will have access to Amazon Appstore so you can fully utilize the tablet to your hearts desires (Angry Birds!).

Apple iPhone 4S

Was everyone as disappointed in the the new Apple iPhone announcement as I was? Perhaps not, considering the iPhone 4S sold 200,000 pre-orders in just 12 hours on Apple's website, which just happens to be a company record. While the trendy won't be jumping on this since it looks exactly the same as the "old" iPhone 4 the techno geek should be happy with the internals.

The new iPhone 4S starts things off with a dual-core A5 CPU inside alongside a new dual-core GPU that is claimed to speed up graphics at least 7X. The screen and back are the same old design, but the antennas have been revamped. The iOS will have the ability to switch between two different sets to avoid dropping (Thanks for the fix Apple!). Running with dual-mode GSM and CDMA radios will let Apple's handset travel the world while enjoying faster downloading speeds; two times faster if you believe everything that comes out of Apple's mouth.
