CES 2012 Week

Ten... stars of the Consumer Electronics Show

CES 2012CES 2012 Las Vegas, gambling’s natural home played host to 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week. Here, the technology giants placed their bets and showed their hands with the launch of hundreds, nay thousands, of new technology products. On the table, PC manufacturers were upping the stakes with Ultrabooks aplenty – each trying to outdo the other with innovative form factors. And when it comes to tellies, Samsung and LG were betting the farm on OLED technology – it looks great but it’ll cost ya. As always, innovation abounds at CES with prototypes aplenty, some we’ll be able to buy one day and others we’ll never see again.
