Usually when you hear the word shotgun in Las Vegas you're describing a wedding officiated by Elvis. The fine folks at ioSafe decided to forgo the usual Vegas nuptials and take the 12-gauge Remington shotgun to their brand new ioSafe Rugged Portable External hard drive. They didn't keep the gun toting to themselves, they allowed Online Editor Robbie Baldwin and Maximum PC Senior Associate Editor Nathan Edwards to tag along and try to destroy their latest creation.
Warning: Firearms, vices and hammers are utilized in this video. Stayed tuned to the end of the video to watch Robbie take out a little bit of his aggression.
CES is great for scouting out the latest and greatest in technology, but what about those weird gadgets that never really get all that much coverage? We set out to find some of the wackiest iOS hardware device accessories around the CES showfloor. Check out the video after the cut for a look.
It's been a full 28 hours since we set foot inside of the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are plenty of gadgets that we've yet to lay eyes on, but for now here's a quick look at what we, and our brethern at Maximum PC, have seen so far at this year's show.

First introduced at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the folks behind AirStash have returned with some new superpowers for their pocketable wireless flash drive, including media streaming and WebDAV support.
This morning's Verizon CES 2011 keynote was a bit of a let down. After all, we were expecting a grand announcement about Verizon's plans to shake hands with Apple. But, instead of a CDMA-compatible iPhone 4, users of the Verizon network can look forward to the debut of Motorola's very own Android tablet. The Xoom, as it's dubbed, will run Android 3.3--or, Honeycomb--and will feature a Tegra 2 SOC dual-core processor. It'll also have HTML 5 and Adobe Flash 10.2 compatability right out of the box.
Our friends over at our sister site, Maximum PC, got a chance to play with this upcoming tablet. Check out the video to see if this tablet is really the iPad killer Android's hoping for.
Thursday is when the public at large invades the Consumer Electronics Show, but most of the cool stuff was announced earlier this week, including a refreshed version of Microsoft’s Surface tabletop -- now with a price cut that still doesn’t make it affordable for us working stiffs.
Join the Mac|Life staff as we stand on the sidelines of the Verizon CES 2011 keynote and wait in anticipation for that Verizon iPhone announcement the rumor mill's been buzzing about since...well, since we can remember! The keynote will be live at 8:30AM PST/11:30AM EST.
If this year’s announcements at the Consumer Electronics Show are any indication, Sony believes a shotgun blast to the face is better than a precise yet deadly incision at one of the body’s many weak spots -- the company announced a huge swath of product in every conceivable category, but apparently left most of their “Wow” at home.
Whether it's hardware, software or vaporwar, whatever Microsoft plans on announcing, we'll be live blogging the event straight from the CES show floor. Join us at 6:30PM PST/9:30 EST for our live "mock" of the Microsoft Keynote. The Mac|Life editors will be here weighing in with news and commentary, and taking your questions, too!
