    10 days ago - By Tech Radar

    There's no better place to see the future of technology than at CES in Las Vegas, and from smartphones to smart homes the tech on show at CES 2019 was every bit as impressive as we expected - but it was the 8K TVs showcased by the likes of Sony, LG and Samsung that really blew us away.

  • How voice assistants have doomed the remote control

    How voice assistants have doomed the remote control

    10 days ago - By Tech Radar

    If there's one common theme at this year's CES 2019 - the Las Vegas tech expo we've been covering all week - it's talking. Not just chatting on the show floor. By talking we mean the sheer avalanche of devices arriving with support for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and so many other competing voice assistants. In fact, everything from motorcycle helmets, water bottles and phone chargers to doorbells, pianos and toilets at least now has the option of being controlled by voice.
    So is the remote control being killed-off?
