CES 2019 is upon us, and The Verge is headed back to Las Vegas to bring you all of the news from the gadget-filled electronics show next week. This year’s conference is shaping up to be more of an iterative event; we should see plenty of improvements to existing services and products like PCs and smart home devices, but no major overhauls or groundbreaking gadgets are expected this time around. Expect to see more folding phones, more devices with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built in, and the continued development of the smart home. Here’s a full glimpse of what we’re expecting to see at CES 2019. PCs The PC industry is in an interesting place going into CES 2019, where it doesn’t look like any big seismic changes to the status quo will be showing up.

Capturing leads at trade shows
It’s all about supported AI experience when it came to Huawei’s Keynote at the IFA Berlin, the biggest innovation trade show for consumer electronics. At the CEO’s speech, Richard Yu introduced an all-new chip that has specs that I believe can launch a car into space, the Kirin 980. Admittedly some of the specs were mind-blowing. The keynote also included the introduction of AI Cube, Alexa enabled sound intelligent speaker and high-speed 4G/LTE sim supported router all-in-one. Below is the video with the CEO keynote at IFA Berlin:We also were invited to pre-briefing of the Mate 20 Lite that boasted an entire now level of user experience.

Boeing declared victory in its multibillion-dollar sales competition with Airbus at this week’s Farnborough International Airshow — but the details are murkier than usual, in part due to international trade frictions. Boeing chalked up 528 orders and commitments for airplanes during the show. Airbus’ corresponding tally came to 431, including up to 60 of the A220 jets formerly known as the Bombardier CSeries. Those single-aisle jets would go to a new airline called Moxy, with the first deliveries due in 2021. To counter that Airbus-Bombardier partnership, Boeing struck a deal of its own earlier this month with Brazil’s Embraer to market small-size passenger jets. Farnborough’s list-price sales total for Boeing added up to $98.4 billion on the commercial airplane side of its business, and $2.1 billion on the services side. Airbus’ corresponding number shaped up in the range of $50 billion to $60 billion, according to 24/7 Wall Street. … [Read more...] about Boeing outdoes Airbus’ jet sales tally at Farnborough, but figures are murky

Dressed in blue jeans and ditching his tie, Putin jumped into the driver's seat of an orange dump truck Tuesday and drove across the bridge with cameras recording every move. One camera in the cab of the truck captured his small talk with a construction worker who was along for the ride and broadcast it across state media. The imagery was deliberate: Putin was sealing his disputed 2014 … [Read more...] about Putin made a show of crossing the new Crimea bridge. But he was upstaged by a cat.
