Today was certainly a hectic day in the world of technology to say the least. We've compiled a list of TechnoBuffalo's top headlines for today to help you make sense of it all.
1. Verizon iPhone Saga
Though Verizon already held their keynote address, they are still making quite a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show. This is mainly due to speculation that the Verizon iPhone is coming soon. While some are skeptical, it appears as if Apple is prohibiting some employees from taking vacation time later this month, meaning that there is a good chance that there will be a large-scale launch. Verizon announced that they would hold a press conference next week, suspiciously 40 hours after CES ends. The Wall Street Journal, one of the most reliable sources of Apple rumors, also has reported that the device will be announced on Tuesday. Will you make the switch once announced?

2. Motorola Atrix Demo
We took a look at one of the many Android-powered handsets that was announced, but the Motorola Atrix has an interesting twist. As a separate accessory, one can buy a dock connector that allows the phone to function as a netbook. Coupled with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip and you have yourself a somewhat functional laptop.

3. BlackBerry PlayBook Preview
We snuck a peek at RIM's 7-inch slate, the PlayBook. It runs on an operating system akin to BlackBerry 6, allowing for full background multitasking. It will be interesting to see the adoption rate of a product like this amongst the business community, the device's target. But for now, take a look at the button-free device that is generating so much hype.

Maintaining the company's trend towards graphically stunning picture-quality, Samsung announced plans to take over your house by offering intuitive ways to connect to your 3D TV.
