Brand Names: Gearing Up for CES
Today, Sunday, I am starting with a link to Dwight Silverman at TechBlog, who notes that this is going to be a banner week for two reasons: CES opens officially on Monday (with Bill Gates giving his "opening shtick" on Sunday night) and on Tuesday Steve Jobs will give his own keynote at Macworld, dealing with all of the rumors that have been floating around for weeks, ranging from wishes for phones to a new one about an Apple 16:9 HDTV that has yet to be named.
But be warned, it might be that nothing of interest will happen at Macworld and all the action and interesting names will be at CES. TechBlog will be blogging live from both events so check in with them for appropriate links.
And while I admire all the incredible technical blogs out there, I stumbled across a blog entitled Shiny Shiny — A Girl's Guide to Gadgets, that makes 10 predictions for CES that I think are pretty good.
Interesting to note that many of these names were mentioned in a recent MarketWatch article that predicted a banner year for consumer electronics.
Somebody should tell the people at Strategy Analytics, who see things from a slightly less rosy perspective.
