Each year at CES we get a ton of swag, sometimes too much swag. This year we decided to give some of it away to you our readers. So what does this swag bag contain? I think the best item in the bag is a 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive. Other items include Zalman USB speakers, a Corsair emergency charger, CA Anti-Virus Plus, CA Internet Security Suite Plus, CA PC Tune-up, the CMHD.TV 2011 girls calendar, a Kingston T-shirt, Zotac T-shirt, Zalman hat and iBUYPOWER hat. This giveaway is going to run much like our other giveaways.
At CES we see a lot of different things, but one of the things that always blows our minds is the crazy cars. This year was no different we saw a ton of different cars. Some were concepts, some were loaded with speakers and others were just down right cool. Take a look through our CES 2011 Car Gallery and see which car from this year is your favorite!

If you’re a PC gamer, you know who Razer is and what they do. Razer has made superb gaming mice and keyboards since 1998, now they’re ready to show the rest of the world what they can do.

At first sight, you might think it’s a laptop or netbook. Boy, you couldn’t be more incorrect! Since Razer is a gaming company, the Switchblade was created to deliver quality gaming experiences on the go. This isn’t a new platform, it is a PC at heart, however the design of the system is what makes it unique.
