Here at Technology Report we really enjoy covering the Computer Electronics Show “CES” held early every January in Las Vegas. CES 2012 is the most influential consumer technology event in the world, where thousands of vendors meet with hundreds of thousands of industry insiders to exhibit, sell, pitch, plan, and enjoy the latest and greatest gadgets available to the consumer market. For attendees CES is a window into what’ll be big and what may be a bust in consumer electronics in the coming year.
CES isn’t really “cutting edge” technology in the sense that this is a showcase of what’s going to be marketed to the masses in the coming year rather than stuff from “test labs”. However some of the exhibitors like Intel, IBM, and Microsoft will usually have some amazing displays using the best processors and display technologies.
CES 2012 won’t just be about exhibits. CES is also a major computer conference also and there are *hundreds* of conference sessions about topics from international development and technology to USB technical specifications. This year we’ll be looking to cover both general topics and also focus on technologies that affect seniors and retirement lifestyle choices. Retire USA is a blog about retirement options and retirement topics for seniors who are seeking general retirement information and also choosing new places to live.
