LAS VEGAS – Gary Shapiro, poobah of the Consumer Electronics Association, likes to call International CES "the greatest show on earth." With more than 150,000 people in attendance here this week, he’s certainly entitled to a measure of grandiosity. It’s the only show on the planet that brings together a decidely eclectic audience drawn from the consumer electronics, mobile, PC, healthcare, semiconductor and software industries.
And a lot of bloggers.
What follows is a sample of both the small and big things we found on the CES show floor that might well alter the consumer electronics landscape in 2013.
Good photo story, Junko I wish you'd stopped by our event on Monday evening to see the IBM/Shaspa/ST Smart Home demo. It showed the future of the local and cloud-based smart home. http://www.st.com/internet/com/press_release/t3380.jsp
We actually connect laptops and phones to our big screens all the time these days. however, we only have one 15 foot HDMI extension so this would be nice to have a wireless linkup. The fact that all 6 phones, 4 laptops, and 3TVs and 2 receivers all use HDMI with no connectivity issues. I hope the same is true with wireless links. I guess I'm curious why WiFi isn't the way to go, since it is so prevalent.
Maybe it's time to kill the "slide-show" format?
It's frustrating, and wastes time.
Your writing and subject-matter is great, but obviously mauled and distorted by the supporting advertisers.
I (for one) am getting tired (and can't afford the time) to click-through the tedium...
Tell all sponsors that they'll get more high-quality attention from the audience better by delivering relevant high-quality content, rather than pestering the audience with constant annoying nagging.
Focus, not bird-shot; whatever happened to good taste?
