I didn’t go to CES this year and, with any luck, I never will. I think it’s easier to follow the flow of news from outside Las Vegas by watching my RSS feed, Twitter and other social media channels. While others are queuing in lines for taxis, the images of the latest and greatest products are filtered and commented upon and fed back to me at my desk.
This year’s winner–and I differ from AmEx’s take–is Apple. Everything I saw coming out of CES 2012 looked like sort of like a MacBook Air, except slightly less polished. And the names. I mean, the Portege Z835-P330? Can somebody buy those guys a vowel and pry the numerical keys off their keypads?
