TWIT on CES Recap
TWIT has a great recap of CES activity from last week. Besides, the cast of characters who host it are so great that it is worth tuning in alone: Leo Laporte, John Dvorak, Robert Heron, Hahn Choi, and Cory Doctorow. It's bound to be interesting, even if dominated by Apple's new iPhone announcement.
A few highlights from their site:
# Warner Bros made a dual-format disc.
# The porn industry has chosen HD-DVD.
# Vista will be crippled by content protection.
# The Apple TV supports HD, but the only iTunes content available is 480p.
# The UK's Tube now costs £4.
# Sharp introduced a 108-inch television at CES.
# A lawsuit may delay the production of SED-TVs.
# Sharp now has 120Hz televisions.
# Robert Heron just bought a 46" Sharp Aquos.
# Sony demoed a 27-inch OLED television.
# At Macworld, the iPhones were inside of bell jars.
# Microsoft and Ford confirmed a deal.
# The SlingCatcher takes your media off the Internet to your TV.
# The Mogo Mouse is a small mouse that will fit in a laptop's PC card slot.
Robert Scoble's recap here, which is from a completely different perspective - more around blogger and new social media energy than a summary of announcements. He was however at the Seagate booth last Monday through Wednesday interviewing execs who were announcing new toys at the show.
If I have to read ONE more blog post about the iPhone I'll X*&$#@ - ENOUGH ALREADY.
