Apple updated the Remote iPhone App. I haven't had a chance to give it a try yet, but it'll let you control an Apple TV with multi-touch gestures. Vizio is adding WiFi to HDTVs along with social network integration and Internet streaming. You'll have Facebook, Flickr, Yahoo Widgets, and Twitter integrated and streaming from Vudu, Netflix, Blockbuster On Demand, Amazon Video OnDemand or Rhapsody. Cello Electronics introduced an HDTV with a built in tuner and records to SD cards. The video will be portable, which is great to see! Unfortunately, it doesn't have HDMI. WildCharge is in the business of wireless charging. Their Adapter Skins will allow you to just place your iPhone on the pad to charge. The WildCharger will be $34.99, and you'll need a Pad as well, which is $50.
Just got my hands on this smartband. This looks so cool that I could not resist but put the video by Fastrack. Do take a look and you may wanna buy it too!

LG Electronics announced the LG-X120 Netbook at Mobile World Congress. You'll be able to access frequently used apps within five seconds of turning your computer on. The HTC Magic will be the second phone to sport Google's Android OS. It has some good features, but also a couple odd choices on their part. Sony's Cybershot DSC-T900 has intelligence built into auto mode. It's not supposed to take your photo if your eyes are closed and quickly adjusts to conditions.

DSLR users who want to up their game but aren't ready for pro gear might be interested in the Nikon D5000. It shoots 720p video at 24 frames per second and 12.3 megapixel stills.
