In the News It's the beginning of the year, so the Consumer Electronics Show is currently in full swing in the awesome city of Las Vegas. The thing is though - there's so much, pardon my Dutch, crap being announced it's hard to keep up. I have yet to see a single interesting thing to come out at CES so far, and I have little hope the next few days are going to be any better. That NVIDIA mobile gaming thing is mildly interesting, but as usual - no price, no release date. The Verge is spending loads of money on CES, so it has excellent coverage going on. Let's have a contest: if three months from now any of you can name three products announced at this year's CES (without cheating), I will force myself to use iOS for a week.

I'll always remember the Sega nomad which IMHO was the first real attempt to bring home console quality into the portable realm (since it was just a Genesis shrunk down) which everybody thought was a great idea...until they found it would go through 4 times the batteries of a GameBoy for the same amount of gaming time.

Don't you count Sega Game Gear? It was just a Sega Master System shrunk down...
...yeah, it also ate batteries for breakfast.

Even GameBoy can be seen as somewhat batteries-hungry, in comparison to such http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brick_Game.png dedicated tetris games that were quite popular in places.
