Follow @BlackEnterprise and me, Marcia Wade Talbert, @TheTechGyrl on Twitter and Facebook as I drop in on exhibitors like LG, Sony, Samsung, HTC, T-Mobile, and Canon (just to name a few) to learn more about their entertainment and business-ready applications and electronics, and as I visit with the CES Tech Zones, a group of exhibits and programs targeting niche industries like MommyTech, Silver Summit (for the aging and elderly), Fitness Tech, and HigherEdTech.
Learn about new developments with SmartTV’s, in-vehicle electronics, and the connected home/office; and find out what is new for the market with celebrity brands like Beats by Dre, Will.i.am’s camera accessory line for iPhones, and LL Cool J‘s new venture, Boomdizzle’s Liquid MyConnect Studio app.
