CES 2013 Wrapup
Another CES has come and gone. At the risk of being permanently banned, we’ve brought back everything we saw and did in Vegas to share it with everyone who couldn’t be there. As with every CES, we saw some amazing things and some not so impressive ones as well. Big themes from this year were: 3D is waning, 4K (UltraHD) is emerging, and Plasma may be on the verge of a comeback.
We have some notes and pictures here for you to follow along, but to get the details, you really need to listen to the show.
