Next week we will be treated to another Apple announcement. We assume it is new iPads. Chaim thought we will spend the show discussing the minutia details of the ipad, but it turned into Chaim being told that nobody cares.
The industry trade show we love to hate is back, as are the giant televisions and bizarre fitness gadgets we’ve come to expect. Your trusty co-hosts take a look at some of the more interesting products at this year’s CES and whether any of them will ever see the light of day.
We’re guessing no.

We’ve all played a little Xbox, but how many of you ever got your hands on a Zune, or a Kin? Microsoft’s getting back into the hardware game with the Surface tablet and on episode 63 of inThirty we get into, about, and under the soon to be released device. We talk pricing, features, make predictions on future market share, and add to the overall confusion about the two different versions of Windows, RT and 8, that’ll run on this new entrant to the tablet market.

On the Recent Microsoft Surface Announcements | Curious Rat
You know what students need more of? Time spent staring at a screen!
Apple’s recently announced their push into digital textbooks with iBooks 2.0 and Chaim and Harry have it out over whether students should trade their old, moldy geography books (which still split Germany into East and West) for shiny new iPads (which also play Angry Birds).
Beating Apple to the punch with pre-holiday hardware announcements, Amazon revealed its new line of Kindles today. We discuss whether tablets need to have integrated digital content delivery for them to be valuable and close by asking which tablet is currently the best considering price and features…all before sundown.
