CES week is here, and it’s the one week of the year I look forward to looking back on. CES is a killer show — not because you are up to your armpits in interesting new products, but because it is so spread out that it’ll kill your legs as you hike all over the damn place. One year, I walked so much I actually ripped the soles off both shoes. What is weird about this show is that it really comes too early for vendors to have much of what they intend to have in stores by the end of the year. So, it fails to deliver the impact it once did.
