Kicking off at CES Vegas
We can start with this BBC report on the opening of CES. It's a nice all round intro to the whole deal.
The thrust of this year's show will be on technologies which put people in charge of multimedia content so they can store, listen to, and watch what they want on devices any time, anywhere.
About 120,000 people are expected to attend the trade show which stretches over more than 1.5 million square feet.
Highlights will include the latest trends in digital imaging, storage technologies, thinner flat screen and high-definition TVs, wireless and portable technologies, gaming, and broadband technologies.
The show also includes several speeches from key technology companies such as Intel, Microsoft, and Hewlett Packard among others.
