CES 2019 Day 1 Recap: All the Best New Tech

CES 2019 is in full swing, and the Tom’s Guide crew has hit the ground running in order to bring you the latest and greatest advancements in consumer tech this year.

Even KitchenAid is making a Google Smart Display—and it’s water resistant

It’s CES week, and we have a new Google-powered smart display to talk about. A big feature of these smart displays is a visual and audio walkthrough of cooking recipes, and with Google’s platform open to third parties, it only makes sense that traditional kitchen appliance manufacturers would want to get in on the action, right? Enter the KitchenAid Smart Display, which takes all the features and functionality of Google’s smart display platform (reference the Google Home Hub and Lenovo Smart Display) and wraps it up with an appliance name that will feel right at home next to your mixer or refrigerator.

At CES 2019, Apple finally sets iTunes, AirPlay loose

Apple’s never had an official presence at CES, opting instead to host its own flashy events to launch its newest products.

Samsung’s New TV Tech Is Mind-Bending But Why?

On the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there’s an itching feeling in the air that this year isn’t a big year for Samsung. The company unveiled (literally) a smaller version of last year’s big TV, the Wall, featuring MicroLED technology at an event in a ballroom. More than one person wondered, what’s the difference? The answer, awkwardly, is everything and nothing.

Uber partner reveals air taxi design at CES

Bell, one of Uber’s flying taxi partners, revealed the design of its vertical takeoff and landing air taxi at CES, a five-person hybrid-electric powered vehicle with six tilting ducted fans.
