Late News: Internet Experts to Address US Congress over SOPA, Microsoft's CES 2012 Keynote, Sony Ericsson 'Pepper'

Higher ups and experts at some of the internet's leading technology firms have been called in to offer up their thoughts to congress on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). "They said 'bring in the nerds,' so I'm headed to DC to testify about SOPA/PIPA," tweeted Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. He's set to testify on 18th January before congress about the implications of SOPA.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has given Microsoft's last keynote speech at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The software giant had earlier announced that this year's CES will be its last as the timing of the show does not match its product milestones. Microsoft, however, claimed that it would be there to provide support to its OEM partners nonetheless.

Recently, an image has been leaked and it has been considered to be of Sony Ericsson MT27i "Pepper", a probable successor of Xperia neo V. Nothing is confirmed about the specification of the device and if rumours are to be believed then it is powered by 1GHz dual-core processor and has a 3.7 inch display capable of 480x854 resolution.

As Consumer Electronics Show 2012 is underway, companies are all set to show to the world what they have and one of such company is Polaroid. Even though the company has not yet confirmed its tablet, according to reports Polaroid will be unveiling its Android tablet as well as a colour eReader at the CES this year.

Looks a lot like a drooling toaster, but it is actually Motorola's newest teaser for Consumer Electronics Show 2012 which is a weeping USB charger that promises to "Stay Unplugged". The image itself is very self-explanatory. At present there are many systems that are available in the market - Duracell's QI system, Energizer and WiPower.
