Griffin CarTrip jacks your iPhone into your car computer - TiPb at CES 2011

Griffin's CarTrip is a tiny Bluetooth peripheral that plugs into the diagnostic port contained on most modern cars and transmits back usage data and error messages to an app on your iPhone. You can use this data to track different performance data over time to try and maximize your fuel efficiency, or just to pull off any problem reports so you know when -- and why! -- you need to go to a mechanic.

We got to take a look at it live from the CES 2011 show floor so check out the video up top and let us know whether you'll be getting one for your ride in the comments below!

Ten 1 shows off Fling thumbsticks for iPad gaming - TiPb at CES 2011

Ten 1 shows off Fling thumbsticks for iPad gaming - TiPb at CES 2011

Ten 1 design branching out from the Pogo stylus and at CES 2011 we got to see their new Fling thumbstick attachments for iPad in full on gaming action. Simple but genius, they stick to your iPad via suction cups and once you orient them on top of the virtual thumb pads for arcade or first-person shooters, they become a capacitive conduit to give you tactile feedback and full control. They're even engineered to return to the center whenever you relax the pressure, just like a real thumbstick.

Check out the video above and let us know if you'd consider getting these thumbsticks for your iPad!

Sphero iPhone, iPad controlled robot - TiPb at CES 2011

Sphero by Orbotix is a robotic ball you can control with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. You can swipe, you can use the gyro and accelerometer, and since they've opened up the API developers can create pretty much any games they can think of.

Availability is later this year. Fun factor is high. We just hope they don't become self-aware too quickly...

Verizon: Mandatory face-to face training Jan 25 to Feb 4... for iPhone?

Verizon: Mandatory face-to face training Jan 25 to Feb 4... for iPhone?

Verizon is having another one of their mandatory face-to-face training sessions for an "iconic pre-order", this one scheduled for January 25 to February 4, 2011, and it could just be for the Verizon iPhone. That's what many seem to believe, at least.

An alternative could be the Android-powered Thunderbolt, but we're being told February is blackout month for Verizon which has not been the case before.

This source has been good to SPE in the past but if there's anything we've learned from years and years of rumors -- we'll believe the Verizon iPhone is here when Steve Jobs holds it up, and/or it goes live on Apple.

TiPb asks: What's your favorite tech item in your home?

If you could only keep one piece of technology would that be? Your iPad, your iPhone or perhaps something else? We have been asking each other that question a lot lately on our podcasts and TiPb TV. So I wanted to know what was everyone else's most favored piece of technology. For me it is my iPhone. I keep it close by me at all times and it works as my personal mini computer, my phone and my entertainment device. What tech would be your sole survivor?

Hands-on with dummy iPad 2 at CES 2011

Hands-on with dummy iPad 2 at CES 2011

No, it's not a working iPad 2 but I did just go hands on with a dummy unit that could just be very close to what the final iPad 2 will look like when Apple announces it this spring. It does match up with rumored features -- tapered edges, flat back, cameras back and front, and an amped up speaker grill at the bottom. Check out the video above and pictures below, and let us know what you think. Is this what iPad 2 will look like and if so, what's your take on the changes?

[Thanks to Arn from MacRumors for the lead on this!]

Motorola Xoom brings iPad competition - TiPb at CES 2011

Our good friend Phil over at AndroidCentral managed to capture a video showing off the Motorola Xoom tablet at CES. The Motorola Xoom could bring some real competition to not only the iPad but the iPad 2 as well. Packing a dual core 1Ghz processor, 10.1-inch (1280 x 800 and 16:10 aspect ratio) display, 2-mega-pixel front facing camera, 5-mega-pixel rear facing camera, microSD slot, HDMI out and a whopping 1024Mb of RAM.

The Xoom will run Android Honeycomb and supports Adobe Flash. Availability is said to be first quarter of this year and exclusive to Verizon. No details on pricing yet.

Apple denying retail store vacation time for CDMA Verizon iPhone launch?

Apple has issued a vacation time blackout period from the last week of January to the middle of February where retail employees without seniority won't be able to take time off, presumably to ensure employee coverage for the first major product launch of 2011. Could this be in preparation for a Verizon iPhone launch?

Apple is quietly prohibiting vacation days for some retail employees for three weeks beginning later this month, a move that could foreshadow a significant product introduction in the coming weeks.
