The annual CES has rolled into Vegas, on the heels of whatever circus was in town just before. Attendance is usually quite high, as the CES has been the place to visit if you want to see the line-up of objects, some of which might turn into the Next Big Thing. WIRED magazine has selected nine of these, and you can take a look. To these jaded old eyes, it looks like The Same Thing, Only in Green. The really, really big tablet is more interesting though. Bigness seems to have been the way the dinosaurs just naturally evolved, so there may be a tendency toward gigantism, just to see what happens. The show will continue for some days yet and there may be more announcements. I think the Smart Fork is a stupid idea. Why would anybody need that?
