What a crazy, insane, minigame inside the biggest news week for tech.
Instead of the usual mix of old hands and greenhorns, WIRED’s crew is comprised entirely of CES veterans. Which means that covering it would be, like, easy for our team. Easy, that is, if we didn’t intentionally make things harder. So we’re not letting them use computers.
This year at CES, our core crew of reporters can use only their phones to cover the show—this includes any text, images, video or audio content they create. No DSLRS, no laptops; no fancy compact-system cameras or iPads. Just phones. (Our photo department reserves the right to swap out terrible images; you’re welcome.) We’ll call it our CES
Mobile Challenge Smartphone SuperchallengeSmartphone Thunderdome. And to make it more interesting, no two reporters will use the same brand of handset–or even the same platform. We’re giving each of them a different rig and pitting them against each other in a winner-takes-all blogging smackdown.
I was working for the video team at The Verge and covered CES 2012. It was crazy, insane, and I have no idea how anyone can do it without a laptop. If only to see what happens, I’m definitely going to keep an eye on Wired this week.
I look forward to the editorials following. Especially, “My CES with a Blackberry Z30”. Oh, and I’m definitely rooting for the Lumia 1020.

Many believe the secret to why some cultures thrive and others disappear may lie in our social networks and our ability to imitate — more important qualities than individual intelligence, according to researchers from the University of British Columbia.
As published by the Proceedings of the Royal Academy: Biological Sciences, investigators show that when people can observe and learn from a wider range of teachers, groups can better maintain technical skills and even increase the group’s average skill over successive generations.
“This is the first study to demonstrate in a laboratory setting what archeologists and evolutionary theorists have long suggested: that there is an important link between a society’s sociality and the sophistication of its technology,” says Muthukrishna, who co-authored the research with UBC Prof. Joseph Henrich.

Study: Nearly Half of US Jobs Could be Done by Computers
A recent study out of Oxford University found that almost half of U.S. jobs are vulnerable to being taken over by computers as artificial intelligence continues to improve.
The study, based on 702 detailed job listings, found that computers could already replace many workers in transportation and logistics, production labor and administrative support. But computers, armed with the ability to find patterns in big data sets, are also increasingly qualified to perform “non-routine cognitive tasks.”“While computerization has been historically confined to routine tasks involving explicit rule-based activities, algorithms for big data are now rapidly entering domains reliant upon pattern recognition and can readily substitute for labor in a wide range of non-routine cognitive tasks,” write study authors Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne.

Microsoft’s marketing campaign for its original Surface was undoubtedly one of the worst for a major product launch in recent memory: Instead of showing people what the Surface was capable of doing, Microsoft literally had people break dancing while twirling the Surface up in the air. The good news is that the company seems to have learned its lessons and has produced a solid ad for its Surface 2 in which it explains why the Surface can do a lot more than an iPad. What makes the ad interesting is Microsoft’s framing — it first describes the Surface 2 as “not just a laptop” before also says that it’s “not just a tablet,” which indicates that the company is trying more to pitch the device as a super-portable laptop replacement more than a direct iPad rival.

I’ve always hoped that desktop computers would get to this level of LEGO-like plug & play, but since the phone is the desktop computing of the future, moving the idea to phones makes sense.
I just don’t want blocks falling off while I’m trying to take it out of my pocket, is all.
