Sorry for the dearth of posts lately, the Mac Inspector's alter ego was sent out to the Nevada desert to cover something called "CES." It's this little get together that happens every year in January. Most of us don't pay it much attention, because MacWorld SF occurs around the same time.
CES is the single biggest tech trade show in the US. This year, 140,000 people jammed the hotels, convention centers, and taxis of Las Vegas to check out the coolest products in the consumer electronics world. Well, most of them at least.
Apple is conspicuously absent from CES, due to its close proximity to the Macworld expo. This simple fact has had a huge impact in recent years as it has turned what was once a niche trade show into a must-see event for the biggest media outlets in the world.
