CES - Consumer Electronics Show 2010
Good to hear that the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was more upbeat than last year. Apple no longer does trade shows, but in anticipation of Apple's planned end-of-January announcement, lots of vendors showcased tablet PCs. Top three products that got media attention were tablets and netbooks, 3D TVs, and e-book readers. See Wildstom's summary and LATimes item on e-book Readers. See FLICKR slideshow for a glimpse at all the gadgets, games, and guys (99% male audience). CNET editors announced its "Best of CES" (Panasonic 3D plasma TV and Intel Wireless). Local California company Sling Media made some big announcements -- Slingbox is a TV streaming device that allows consumers watch their home TV from all sorts of devices, from anywhere.
