CES 2013 has wrapped up and while not, specifically, a software developer show it still has a lot to offer those of us who can't get enough of the latest and greatest. Most interesting to me were the new laptops, specifically the ultrabooks.

It looks like Intel will be making our interactions with our humble portable even more interesting with their Perceptual Computing. Think of it as a Kinect powered laptop. Intel are doing Yet Another crazy big contest based around this so if you're up for some loot you should hit their contest page..

We're also wrapping up our own Intel Ultrabook challenge with the final piece of the puzzle (so to speak). our Ultrabook Article competition invites those who took the time to learn about Ultrabooks in our previous comp. to write up their hard earned knowledge. A Latest And Greatest Ultrabook is up for grabs, but get in quick- it ends this week.

cheers,
Chris Maunder

For example solving 1 million CAPTCHA's with this API would cost $1390.Fort
