CES 2011

It’s time for my Sunday round-up of items in the news coverage of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.




CES 2011 kicks off in a few days and tablets are looking to be the big thing. Wait… is this déjà vu I am feeling?


CES 2010 Day One

   I’ve been seeing reviews and previews for a lot of great pieces of tech at CES so far today; one of which I may even purchase later this year. So far, CES seems to be more oriented toward innovations and improvements to existing concepts this year. Considering the state of the economy, that’s not a bad idea at all. So, without further ramble, my thoughts on a couple of things I’ve seen this year.

CES 2010 Is Coming

   Every year, I get excited like a little school girl for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. I am nowhere near there, but I monitor the major tech content outlets for their reports, broadcasts and adventures at CES through the weekend. I love technology, gadgetry and the sense of wonder involved in previewing new concoctions and contraptions.

   This year’s CES will take place next weekend, from Thursday the 7th of January, to Sunday the 10th of January. More information on the show can be found at:

   Keep an eye out for my constant twittering and blogging through the weekend!
