CES 08

The Consumer Electrical Show is on over 7th-10th January in Las Vegas. I didn't get a chance to see the news yesterday, so haven't heard much about it. Here's a mediasplurge.

Official website - complete with RSS feed, and media coverage pages, including Bill Gates' final keynote speech (link to his QnA session on BBC website).

The BBC is blogging the Show, and has a page of gadgets to look at.

FWIW, I'd be happy with a half-hour programme on mainstream tv from each day of the show. If we truly live in a technological age, what happened to our "Tomorrows World" type of programmes? But I suppose it gives people a chance to create solutions and sell you them on dvd or on niche channels. I class Freeview as niche channels, until the digital switchover forces us plebs to update our systems, and forces the 'service providers' to improve the signals and coverage. I foresee a lot of people walking away from mainstream television unless the digital authorities get their act together.

In the meantime, and back OT, the channel that has the BBC scared, YouTube, has plenty of coverage. Here's the results for a search on CES 2008. Share and enjoy.
