CES is always about new and interesting technology and this year is no exception. One piece of truly interesting tech I had the pleasure of experiencing today is the Admiral, a truly wireless all-powerful headset from NOX Audio.
The headset looks similar in style to any Logitech computer headset - that is until you get closer. Upon further inspection you will discover that the Admiral has a retractable microphone, bluetooth, WiFi and a 2.4" touchscreen LCD running Android.
Why is a headset running Android? Hit the break to find out.
We have some key notes from the Microsoft Keynote that you might have missed during the liveblog. Follow the break for the notes and for a cool picture!
It's been nice having the last 2 weeks off, but it's time for us to get back to the grindstone and what better way to do that than a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada for the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011.
Our crew is currently sitting in the press area of The Venetian taking in the sights of the first unofficial official day of the show. There are people from all aspects of the industry around us, from press, bloggers and analysts to executives from small start-up companies and large, international conglomerates. Everyone is running around preparing for the beginning of the full show.
The real thing kicks off tonight here at the Las Vegas Hilton where Steve Balmer, CEO of Microsoft, will give his opening keynote speech. Following the keynote,
PLuGHiTz Live! Radio will be broadcasting live for our CES 2011 Pre-Show. You'll want to follow our Facebook page for the exact time because everything is up in the air.
As the convention continues, keep following us here on The UpStream as well as Facebook for breaking news from the tech industry!

I'm sitting here in the Venetian for Press Day at CES with
Scott and Nick and I've got to say there are a lot more MacBooks here than anticipated but the PC and mobile platforms are here in full force along with so many other things that literally I don't have enough hard drive capacity in my brain to write all the data. With over 20 Tech Zones and tons of industry makers here we will have a lot of content coming at you. You also won't want to miss our semi-exclusive interviews with industry leading companies and professionals. What's that? You want to know who? Then you better pay attention to our Facebook page and The UpStream.
Windows Phone 7 might be the new kid on the block, but some pretty big partners have already gotten on-board to produce exclusive applications for the platform. Most notably is the new series of Paramount movie apps. Since WinPho7 is entirely Silverlight based, it gives Paramount a perfect platform to produce video applications.
The first of 10 planned titles is Jack Black's
School of Rock. Included in the application is the ability to watch the full movie, cut out clips, see the special features, get movie trivia and play Scene It? based on the particular title.
For more of the titles and the details, hit the break.
