My CES coverage this year starts with a curtain-raiser/hype-debunker for the Disruptive Competition Project, in which I relate some of the obstacles that have sunk some past, promising debuts at the annual electronics debut. On that note: What are you looking forward to learning more about from next week’s CES?
This edition of the podcast I do for the Consumer Electronics Association features one of the tech reporters I enjoy catching up with at the usual tech events, PCWorld’s Melissa Perenson. We talk about tablet computers (note that we had our chat before Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD news yesterday), the prospects for Windows 8, inflight WiFi, the future of digital cameras and a few other tech topics.
My monthly CEA podcast got held up by everything from travel to a national holiday to the derecho, plus a little bureaucratic friction. But it’s now up, featuring a long chat with Engine Advocacy’s Michael McGeary over how his group and others are trying to get tech-policy issues into the conversation in Washington.
For this month’s CEA podcast, I interviewed D.C.-area gadget blogger Dave Zatz. We talked about TV cord cutting (he thinks it’s not as big of a deal as I do), trends in flat-panel technology, cable boxes and DVRs and what his experience crossing from gadget blogging to gadget marketing and back has taught him about the business.
My monthly Web chat for the Consumer Electronics Association—from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern today, April 13—covers a few recent developments in mobile and wireless. But, as ever, no reasonable tech query will be refused, and if I have time I’ll try to get to some unreasonable questions too.
