Heading home from CES
Heading home from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Plenty of cool stuff to see, some useful (some great mini-laptop devices and eReaders) and plenty of nonsense (the hype over 3D tv was ridiculous, it has a long way to go before it hits primetime).
The biggest value in these shows is not in the products, it’s the chance to talk with lots of folks in the industry. Most of the big exhibitors have set armies of product managers to staff their booths. After a few dozen conversations with different companies you get a good perspective on the market.
After walking miles through the convention center every day I’m ready to be heading home. Can really go for a good yoga class right now.
