The International CES begins Monday in Las Vegas and Geeks&Beats has dispatched correspondent Michael Hainsworth to cover the proceedings. His half of this week’s podcast will come direct from
a gentlemen’s club the exhibition halls.
A couple of things about this year’s show:
1. There will be plenty of space dedicated to the connected car
From NBC News:
Technology is transforming virtually every aspect of the automobile, from engines to headlights – and even the mundane windshield wiper. Some of the year’s biggest breakthroughs will make their debut at CES and the 2014 North American International Auto Show, or NAIAS, that follows barely a week later in Detroit.
2. There will be lots of celebrities in attendance
Nick Cannon, Tim Tebow, Pharrell Williams, 50 Cent, LeVar Burton and many others will be in Vegas to cover the show, help hawk new gear or to get some award. More at Mashable.
3. Things have changed a lot over the years.
