  1. Need a cold one in a big hurry? LG is showing off a fridge that can cool a beer in five minutes. Make that eight for bottle of wine.
  2. The HP Envy Spectre 14 is a glass-enclosed laptop. Nothing can go wrong with that.
  3. Microsoft honcho, Steve Balmer, gave his last keynote address last night (Microsoft announced earlier that it's not coming back to CES). The talk included muppets. The Xbox is getting interactive with Sesame Street using Kinect.
