CES 2013 - Day 4 and CES Writing

It's the fourth and final day of CES 2013 and here is the only interesting thing which happened today...

The Lenovo Idea Pad Yoga 11S
The first mini ultra-book was announced at CES today, it is called the IdeaPad Yoga 11S and it is made by Lenovo. It has an 11.6-inch touch screen and it apparently has 6 hours battery life when you first get it. Unfortunately that isn't that long however I'd be prepared to compromise on battery life for a super cool touch ultra-book running Windows 8. 
The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga's (including the Yoga 13) are becoming slightly famous for their flexible hinge connecting the screen and the keyboard; the screen folds all the way back so it looks just like a tablet.
This sleek ultra-book has 2 USB ports, a HDMI port, a SD card slot and 128 GB of flash memory. It comes in 2 flavours - black and orange - and black and silver. Finally, it will cost around £700 ($800) and it comes out in June this year.

Writing about CES 2013
Technology news websites from all around the world were at CES 2013 and it was a challenge trawling through the hundreds of stories to find out what people will find interesting. I filtered the CES news into the best and most interesting CES news; that is what you read.

The first official day of CES was the hardest to write for because as soon as I had wrote something there was new information coming in about the product. 
It was almost like finishing filming a movie and then the script writer deciding he wants to add more detail to a scene it the middle. It was awkward and sometimes hard work.

Keeping reviews original was hard as well and not repeating myself; there are only a certain amount of tablets which you can call 'awesome' and 'amazing'. Reading about a games console on a news website and then trying to rewrite that in different words can also be hard because most of the time the reporter from the news website has worded everything perfectly.

I will shortly be writing a post about the highlights of CES 2013 so watch this space!
