So what exactly is going on with Nvidia’s Shield family of products? We may get that answer at the beginning of CES 2017 in early January. Typically, the company uses this time to reveal its automotive-related news, but there is a rumor that Nvidia plans to showcase a new Shield device during the event as well. The rumor indicates that the company may have originally planned to reveal the device during 2016, but pushed the date back for unknown reasons.
You will hear many things about today's Pebble acquisition by Fitbit - that it was about software, firmware, engineers, intellectual property, or simply that Pebble was unable to continue on as it existed. The one examination you should take to heart, though, is that Fitbit just straight up wrote a check to kill a competitor.
