Technology is constantly evolving, especially in 2020! While technology gets a bad rap from time to time, I for one absolutely love it. Thanks to tech I have had the chance to interview the biggest celebrities, renowned television personalities and trusted experts for over 10 years and share their knowledge with all of you around the world! This morning one of my favorite tech experts ever, the one and only Katie Linendoll joined me for an interview straight from CES 2020 to dish on the latest tech innovations for the entire family.
If you aren’t familiar with CES, it is the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES is “the global stage for innovation.” According to the website “CES is the world’s gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.” In 2019 over 175,000 people from around the world attended the show to learn about the latest innovations in technology!
Today is day 2 at CES 2020, and during our interview, Katie Linendoll dished on four amazing products that I can’t wait to get my hands on this year!
If you have dogs as I do, you will love the pet health tracker that tracks your pet’s health and fitness. Are you obsessed with brushing your teeth like I am? If so, you need the electric toothbrush that is so amazing and innovative it’s an award nominee at CES and has a waiting list! If you’re in the market for a TV, you can’t pass up on the 55” television she mentioned that offers 500,000 shows and movies and is under $700. Last but definitely not least, she shared an amazing premium laptop that is under $900, is a CES award nominee and has all the bells and whistles! Please be sure to watch the video below for details and to see our interview in its entirety. Do you have a favorite or are you like me and want everything she mentioned?!
Tech Expert Talks Tech Must Haves For The Entire Family From CES 2020
Must Have Pet Health Tracker
Candie Anderson: What are the biggest trends you are seeing at CES 2020?
Katie Linendoll: “Every year at CES as we know there are new trends. I have to tell you, it’s 12 years for me; my 12th show at the Consumer Electronics Show. It just gets bigger and more gadgets, and more hype and more excitement than ever.
I have the chance to partner with four awesome technologies that have been getting a ton of buzz here at CES. I’ll start in the world of high tech pets because it might sound really futuristic but it’s actually very practical.
This tiny little gadget has a lot of power. This is from Whistle Labs. They are known for their pet health and location tracking. This little device attaches to a pet’s collar and it uses the Whistle app to keep track of your pet’s health and fitness. You can see how much they are moving around and set activity goals, know how much to feed them based on how much they are moving and the big picture – you can get alerted about any potential health problems before they become problems.
This is a little bit of a sneak peek. It will be out later this month. $80 and a $3 a month subscription fee. It’s so cool for your best friend.”
Must Have High Tech Toothbrush With An 8 Month Waiting List
This high tech toothbrush and I have to say at CES every year there are innovation award honorees. This is an honoree which is a coveted title to have because it’s kind of like the best in engineering, the best in design. This is Oral-B’s iO. It is utilizing breakthrough engineering design. It’s going to give you a professional clean brushing every single day which is cool.
I’ve got to get nerdy for a second because there is an all new magnetic motor inside here that efficiently transfers the energy right to the bristle tips so you’re going to combine oscillating and rotating cleaning motions with micro vibrations and also all that with a new smart display right on the brush and seven different brushing modes. To me, this is something you do every single day. Are you doing it properly? Are you doing it efficiently? Not only a great for you to use the different brushing modes but also pair with an app from Oral-B that will coach you and give you A.I. analysis, so you can answer that question am I brushing properly and good?
That will be out in August by the way so this is a little bit of a sneak peek and there’s a waiting list at OralB.com. Hop on that waiting list or learn more because I think that’s so cool.”
Must Have Television With Access to 500,000 Channels At CES 2020
Let’s talk about televisions because at CES people always ask me what is the latest and greatest in TVs and there’s so many being unveiled here at CES. One company I’ve been putting the spotlight on is Hisense, specifically their H9G. My goodness, you should see this television! We had eyes on (a hair and makeup artist was with me) a model came on screen and you could literally see the pores. It feels like you’re right there looking at it.
The great part about Hisense is they do not break the bank – amazing picture quality and coloring and this one also uses their patented ULED technology for top picture superiority but it doesn’t break the bank in under $700 for a 55”. This will be out in April starting 2020. But also I have to note, we expect so much from TVs these days. There’ll be access to 500,000 shows and movies and of course all of your streaming content from Netflix to Hulu to Youtube. We’ve got you covered 360 the Hisense H9G.”
Must Have Premium Notebook Under $900 The Entire Family Will Love
The last one is a laptop which you can’t miss right in front of me! This is cool too because I told you about CES honorees in terms of innovation awards. This one too is an innovation award nominee. It is ACER Swift 5. I just think this is a gorgeous ultraportable clamshell notebook. A premium notebook available now for under $900. I like it because it’s beautiful on the outside and 2.2 pounds, less than 15 millimeters thick, full 14 inch HD display. As an IT girl that’s my degree, that’s my heart and guts inside the computer. It’s got you covered with the latest INTEL Core processor, but also it’s got all the ports that you need and bonus things like a fingerprint reader for easy access to log in and 12 hours of battery life. Brains and beauty gotcha covered ACER Swift 5.
