The consumer electronics show in Las Vegas opened on Thursday, and as usual it is quite an event. Attendance in both exhibitors and attendees is down about 10%. Crowds were noticeably smaller, especially in casinos, and rooms were readily available cheaply even at the largest trade show of the year.
The biggest exhibitors were once again flat-panel displays. They continue to get larger, cheaper, adn thinner, and they look great. Otherwise there were not a lot of amazing new inventions that looked great.
