CES 2013 bug LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – End-of-lifing the Garmin EDGE 500 bike computer is a little like Apple ditching the iPod mini. It’s a classic which would surely keep selling millions for years to come. But the new EDGE 510 is as odd a replacement as the iPod nano, only it’s bigger, not smaller.

They aren’t the first accessory makers to enter a space, but when they do enter it, they try to do it with a certain degree of zen-like style.
