Analyst Opinion - There were great events and some amazing things at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES. Warner Brothers started off by blind siding Toshiba with a move to go exclusively with Blu-Ray, Bill Gates set the date he would officially leave Microsoft with a great video, Intel pointed towards the future of really cool tiny computers and AMD brought out its Live Ultra home entertainment platform. But I still walked away with the impression that the grand CES may be dying.

Las Vegas (NV) - Despite a nearly unprecedented level of anticipation, there really wasn't much to take away from today's Blu-ray press conference at CES, but a couple of the interactivity features seem promising.The press conference actually started out in mild chaos, after countless people who pre-registered to guarantee a spot were not on the list. Turnout ended up being quite manageable, though, so I'm pretty sure everyone was able to get in.
Las Vegas (NV) - Of all the things we could have expected to see at today's Taser press conference, a $400 leopard print taser was not one of them.

Las Vegas (NV) - The Samsung conference consisted of 45 of the worst minutes I have ever spent in Las Vegas.
Let me set the stage for you. It was around 1:45 PM Pacific Time and I was dashing out of the room where the Philips press conference was held to head to the Samsung event, which began at 2:00.
When I arrived at the Samsung conference room, there was a huge line already. That's no surprise. However, once they started letting people in, they quickly closed the door and told us that the room was at full capacity.
Las Vegas (NV) - Philips spent almost all of the time during its CES press conference talking about expanding its TV technology to the point where it feels like you're "stepping into a mirror".Philips this year introduced a new sector in its company, called "consumer lifestyle". It combines the divisions of consumer electronics and domestric appliances/personal care.
Sony has impressive additions to its television, MP3 player, and mobile phone lines as shown during its pre-CES press conference.
Sony talked a lot about its less highlighted divisions at today's press event, but said absolutely nothing about the PS3 and only mentioned the PSP in passing.
