    What We're Looking Forward to at CES 2013

    Next week, AMP will be heading back to Vegas to the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show. I hope that we find a ton of awesome technology to bring back to our clients and, on a personal level, that I consume much less Sbarro than last year. Here’s a quick outlook of some of the things… Read more »

    Five Groundbreaking Apps from CES 2012

    One of our favorite events from this year’s CES was the Mobile Apps Showdown. This event gave ten app developers four minutes to pitch their app concept to the audience and conduct a quick on-stage demo for the chance to win CES glory. Today, we take a quick look at five finalists that inspired our imaginations.

    The New Media Experience

    What’s your favorite experience on your tablet? Is it reading, playing apps, or watching movies? What if I said that some day in the not too distant future, you’ll have a hard time differentiating those experiences because you’ll be doing all three at the same time? And this isn’t a post about some new tablet that allows for multitasking. I’m talking about tablets redefining our media experience and storytelling as a whole.

    Early Impressions from CES

    It’s definitely been a great start to CES. We primarily hit the conference track panels yesterday with some brief time on the exhibitor floor in between. Click through to hear our initial thoughts on key themes and (a lack of) “game-changing” products.

    This week a small cadre of AMP’s most tech-minded individuals (nerds) will be going to the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    Three Awesome Things You Missed at CES Because Everyone Was Too Busy Talking About Tablets

    Don’t get me wrong, I <3 technology. I am completely enamored by all things plasticy, shiny, button-filled and new. Throw in a blinking light of some sort, and I’ll probably fetch my wallet.

    That aside, I feel that there are several breakthrough technologies that were showcased at CES that the general public will not see for another year until they hit the mainstream. So get your clicking-finger ready to learn about more than tablet computers and 3D everything. These technologies are truly revolutionary and inspiring. Sorry, 10.1ˆ Angry Birds.

    Polaroid + Digital Camera = Bad Romance (Lady Gaga pun most definitely intended…)

    Nerd alert! The annual International Consumer Electronics Show (CES for those in the know) wrapped up this past weekend with a 3D flurry of tablets and mobile phones galore. I’m not even remotely close to being considered a techie, but I always find myself excited to hear about the “next big thing” when the convention rolls around each year.

    After scrolling the headlines and skimming through countless product launches that were over my head, I noticed Polaroid. Around this time last year Polaroid announced Lady Gaga as Creative Director, which seemed like a smart move for a seemingly “dying” brand that desperately needed an injection of style and creativity after going bankrupt (again).
