CBC's coverage of CES 2007 in Las Vegas
The CBC gets the low-down on the state-of-the-art in consumer electronics
Last Updated Jan. 15, 2007
Saleem Khan is reporting from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Our awareness of consumer electronics has come a long way. From mobile video players to flat-screen televisions, increasingly advanced gizmos have moved into mainstream culture and people who couldn't program a VCR clock 15 years ago are now abuzz over the promise of high-definition DVDs.
The premiere venue for high-tech wares, the Consumer Electronics Show, has likewise seen a rise in prominence since it first opened its doors in 1967. The videocassette recorder, compact disc player, high-definition TV and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox are among some of the notable technology products that have had their debut at the CES.
Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, the show is expecting some 150,000 people to pack Las Vegas from Jan. 8 to 11 in search of the latest gear from the estimated 2,700 vendors.
CBC News has sent technology reporter Saleem Khan to the show to keep readers abreast of the latest innovations, most talked-about announcements and the implications of the biggest business deals.
