  • The Consumer Electronics Show proved to be a lot more vibrant than I expected. The buzz going in was that everything was “me, too,” and nothing innovative would be being shown. Instead, the press conferences jumped the gun and were early by a day, and the show itself was mobbed. It turned out to be a banner year for product introductions and excitement.

    Corning is making its Consumer Electronics Show (CES) debut this year. And though it's a newcomer, it's one of the most talked about and prevalent companies at the convention.

    With a slew of new product offerings, 3D will continue its assault at retail this year. LG, Samsung and Panasonic all plan to include the technology in a wider array of products— most importantly in TV sets and Blu-ray players that aren’t being aimed at the high-end, early adopter audience.

    Apps and Internet connectivity are everywhere. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, you’ll see more devices incorporating PC-like functions. And they'll be not just smartphones and set-top boxes, but TVs, digital cameras and printers as well.

    CES kicks off today and buzz is already building about the hot new devices and services that will grab the attention of consumers and investors. Some clear themes have already emerged and it's all about new mobile devices, seamless integration of streaming and traditional content, more powerful chips, and persistent 3D.

  • Returning cash to shareholders is possible this year, Greg Brown, CEO of Motorola Solutions, told CNBC Tuesday.

    It’s pretty astonishing just how quickly Apple iPhone users have grown to rely on the phones—and how much control they have given it (along with the iPod Touch and iPad) over their day to day lives.
