Cult of Mac CES 2016 full coverage LAS VEGAS — CES is the tech world equivalent of an all-you-can-eat dim sum buffet. Your eyes boggle at all the tantalizing-looking options, but you’re never really sure what you’re about to sink your teeth into.

Sometimes an exhibitor at this sprawling electronics show serves up the tech equivalent of a delicious shrimp dumpling. Other times you end up politely nodding and searching for the nearest napkin.

In today’s Cult of Mac CES 2016 roundup, we’ve got hoverboards, a game console for dogs, robots and other exotic offerings on the menu.

Cooking, charging, carrying and, uh, cufflinking. Yes, this week’s Gadget Watch is all about the c-word. We even have a cubic camera, a keyboard with a nipple (which doesn’t start with "C" but it’s close -- and clicky).

Bam! Kick it Up a Notch With These New iPad Kitchen Accessories from Belkin



There’s no space the iPad hasn’t invaded — the kitchen in particular seems a favorite for me place for me to plop it down in. I’ll look up recipes, stream live TV news in the background while I’m cooking or kick back with the Grey Lady over breakfast.

But Apple’s probably going to void your warranty if they find egg yolk in the iPad’s innards. Never fear — Belkin has just announced a whole aisle’s worth of iPad accessories for the kitchen that’ll keep the iPad mess-free.

MacBook Cutting Board Beats Using Your iPad



Apple’s unibody aluminum carving process… applied to dead tree flesh. For the true Apple fan, this $55 MacBook cutting board is a perfect addition to any kitchen, with a wonderful attention to detail: from the choice of material (an appropriate applewood) to the halved Apple logo on the cutting surface.

My only issue is it’s simply too gorgeous to cut anything on: $55 is just too much to spend on an item that is going to be hacked, slashed and stained with grease and tomato juice within a few days. This $40 iPad cutting board may be a better and more frugal fit for the culinary gore show of the Brownlee/Morford kitchen.
