ZTE U.S.A. CEO Lixin Cheng spoke with Digital Trends at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, saying the company takes a much more grass-roots approach to advertising — through word of mouth and through its great phones — and that strategy seems to be working.Cheng also spoke a little about the fact that ZTE isn t just a smartphone business — the company believes in connecting everything.We have mobile devices — the smartphone is a big part of that.We believe that in the future, everything is connected.Firstly, the communication between people, but we re also going to facilitate collaboration between machines, Cheng said in the interview.Everyone s talking about artificial intelligence and the internet of things, but that s only the tip of the iceberg.
First look at LG's phenomenally thin TV from CES 2017Even by the standards of a CES where extraordinary TVs seem to be lurking around every corner, LG s Signature W7 OLEDs stand out.The Signature W7 OLED TVs – they come in 77- and 65-inch sizes – are LG s flagship sets for 2017.Make a TV that s less than 3mm deep, that can attach to your wall via magnets, and can even be gently bent at the corners to make the installation process easier.The impact this design has on the way it fits into your living room is pretty extraordinary.The single cable that runs from the screen to an external control box had been channelled neatly into the wall – something that surely anyone who buys this extraordinary TV will also want to do.

BMW is planning to put 40 autonomous test cars on public roads in the second half of 2017, as the race to capitalize on the burgeoning self-driving car industry intensifies.The German luxury car maker teamed up with chip giant Intel and Mobileye, an Israeli computer vision company specializing in building driverless car technology, back in July when they first announced plans to put self-driving cars into full production by 2021.Speaking at a joint press conference at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, the three firms revealed that BMW 7 vehicles will employ cutting-edge Intel and Mobileye technologies as part of the trials that will take place in the U.S. and in Europe.In addition to their collaboration, the companies revealed that they have developed a scalable architecture that can be used by other carmakers — so in effect they re working on a white-label platform that can be used by other brands.This partnership has all of the skills and talent necessary to overcome the enormous technological challenges ahead and commercialize self-driving vehicles, explained Klaus Fröhlich, member of the management board at BMW AG for Development.Therefore, we are already thinking in terms of scalability and welcome other companies — manufacturers, suppliers or technology companies — to participate and contribute to our autonomous platform.This year our fleet of vehicles will already test this joint technology globally under real traffic conditions.BMW first revealed its plans for self-driving cars last May when it discussed a futuristic concept car called the iNext, which it touted as its innovation driver for autonomous driving.
