I'm sorry but I really don't feel like naming the answers right now. If I'm feeling particularly nice, I might list them tomorrow. In the mean time guess away!

It’s Sundance Film Festival time in Park City, Utah. For me, I love going to Park City to walk the classic main street and occasionally see someone really famous. But for those of you who don’t like the cold, there is another option to enjoy Sundance without going to the snowy resort town that is Park City.
If you have access to iTunes, (which I think is safe to say that most of us do) then you have a front row seat to some of the indie woks of the Sundance Film Festival. Apple is allowing you to download up to ten short films for free. What’s the catch you ask? Nothing. The ten film downloads are free during the ten days of the festival. That means you have seven days left to download from today, or until January 25th.
As a snow lover and ski addict, I’ll probably head up to Park City anyways to see some of the films or at least to experience the Sundance atmosphere. If you’re a “star gazer” then you definitely want to head to Park City, instead of watching your fav’s on iTunes. But Kudos to Apple for making the Sundance Film Festival a little easier to experience if traveling to Utah isn’t an option.

This was my first experience at the Consumer Electronics Show. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. Walking all over the Las Vegas Convention Center was a feat in itself. Between the convention center and the Venetian there were 2,700 exhibitors in many different product categories from audio to digital imaging, gaming, home theater, and in-vehicle technology.
We (my coworkers and I) searched the show for the best and most interesting products. I checked out 3D TVs, OLED TVs, software, gaming chairs, to batteries that run on water. It was all very interesting and informative and I got more nerdy the longer I was there. I’ll post the most fun products I saw in the next couple of days. You’ll see me racing a car in a sweet gaming chair that shakes when I crash (that happens a lot-only when I’m gaming of courseJ), to having a piece of equipment wrapped around my head where it uses my “brain power” to move a ball.
I hope you enjoy some of these videos from CES, even if it will take months to years to get our hands on the actual products!

The EDGE 705 from Team Garmin focuses on the bike traveling friends who might need a map on the go. The EDGE maintains data such as distance traveled, speed, and destination to assist during your travels and training practices for your records. It's flexible to work with other cycling hardware specifically.
