Geek Smack! Topic of the Week: Consumer Electronics Show (CES) preview
Every time this year I join Todd Cochrane and Andy McCaskey in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show. We put together many hours of video for you to watch, and with the live stream again this year, we expect to have the best CES coverage we can deliver.
We are joined by Netcast Studios, GeoCaching World and the guys at Plughitz. We have 3 sponsors this year.
CES will be the year of the Ultrabook – The thin notebook using Intel’s soon to be released Ivy-bridge processor. If there is a good amount of meat on that bone, I might be picking up one of those machines.
Also, expect mobile to be very big. With Android pushing smart devices to the masses, tons of companies will be showing off interesting product.
CES is sold out in vendor booths, and the Venetian is the new Sands (which held a part of CES). We expect a lot this year, so get ready for an awesome CES!
