The Entourage eDGeFrom Cnet:
'The goal of the Edge, the company says, is to offer a device that can replace the textbooks and notebooks carried around by typical high school students.
"We just thought here was a way to take technology and apply it to what they carry around," said Entourage Systems Vice President Doug Atkinson. "The initial goal was to put a 30-pound backpack in a device. I think we've achieved that."'
The Google Phone Cometh?
The Google Phone, the mystical Google-branded device to challenge the iPhone, Droid and Palm Pre, might actually be real – and coming in January
The best evidence thus far comes from CNet podcaster Jason Howell, who Tweeted the following:

Google Wave isn't new, but it doesn't have it's own article here yet.
I have not gotten to personally use Google Wave, but it just sounds like a Google MSN.
"What is a wave?"
A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.
A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.
A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time."So... A fancy MSN with documents?
Yeah, a fancy MSN with documents.

LG Watch Phone
Engadget: So we dropped by LG's booth here in the South Hall at CES and weren't really surprised to see a whole bunch of watch phones in a case that looked like it was just moved out of Jacob & Co.

LG was being super secretive about the transitions between the various screens, but we did our best to sneak peeks through the fingers on our not-so-generous demonstrator's hand. What we did see looked pretty polished though (which you should know by now) and the transitions looked like browsing music on the iPhone. We were able to find out that the screen is not an OLED. LG went with a TFT with capacitive touch but we were told that it would work through a golf glove -- though we're not exactly sure about this.

Camera Survives 3000 Foot Fall
A skydiver strapped his Canon Rebel XT to his skydiving helmet. It didn't stick, and fell 3,000 feet onto the ground.
Somehow, it survived. From the owner:
"Amazingly, the Rebel survived the fall and my friend is still using it to this very day. It has a crack in the plastic body and the kit lens is a little jerky when zooming, but functional. I'd like to know if there is a similar story or something close to this but I doubt. It might be a world record indeed (for the height of a camera drop which survived)."
