Your questions on CES

By Peter Nowak, CBCNews.ca

Ah January... a time to relax after the craziness of the holidays. Not so for the technology world - things start to heat up at this time of year as the annual techno-circus known as the Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Las Vegas this weekend.

This year's show will be an interesting one, with the hot topics expected to be online content, car electronics, the coming of Google to the cellphone business and that pesky, ongoing battle between HD DVD and Blu-ray. Our preview of the big show will be up in the next day or so, but in the meantime check out last year's coverage to see how much of what went on at CES was hype and how much of it actually came to pass.

I'll be in Las Vegas for the show and will be meeting with as many exhibitors as I can cram into the five days I'm there. If there's something you want to know - whether it's a question you want asked of a manufacturer or a status update on a particular gadget - here's your chance. As we did last year, I'll field your questions and do my best to get the goods, with answers posted here on this blog.
