If you’re a Geek Squad Agent, or even just a fan of the latest and greatest in tech, you’ve already shifted gears from the new year to new technology. For technology fans everywhere, that means the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held every January in Las Vegas Nevada.
There are few things more exciting for a Geek Squad Agent that being in a huge convention center filled with all the new and upcoming technology that we’ll be seeing in stores and setting up in homes over the next twelve to twenty-four months.
One thing that struck me as I walked through the displays of gadgets and gizmos at the International Consumer Electronics Show was how CES 2010 had made good on a word that was often used in the last decade, but hadn’t seen much mention recently: “convergence”.
It’s always interesting to see how a product category handles the progression from being the hot new technology at previous Consumer Electronic Shows, to being a more accepted, if not mature, member of computer society.
Looking for a laptop, but confused by the herculean task of balancing all the latest features you want in a laptop that won’t break the bank? Fear not, Citizen, because Best Buy joined with Toshiba, Sony and Dell at this week’s CES 2010 to announce their Best Buy Blue Label 2.0 family of laptops.
