For weeks, I postulated that CES would have NOTHING new, interesting, exciting...and people ignored me. All week, I've listed to people who are shocked that show offered nothing new. Well, people, listen to me next time, and save yourself the $500 hotel room, hour long taxi lines, and cartons worth of cig smoke! The consumer semi girl knows what's happening out there and what it means.
The coolest products launch outside of CES: take the Lab 126's Kindle or next week's Apple announcements (I bet, on the later). It's just sad that 6000 companies converge in Las Vegas to make announcements, and the sum total of their impact is far less than Steve Jobs will have in one hour, next week.
Of course, CES is all about networking. About building and improving relationships. Or at least it is for me. So if you are disappointed, talk to some new people next time!!
