Happy New Year

2011 January 2

Welcome to 2011. I am back online and am slowly putting my brain back into something resembling a useful state.

As for content to throw here I’m still running a little light. The crux of the problem is that I’ve lost my compass a bit as to which direction I think we are heading on several fronts.

One thing that I am quite solid on, however, is that this year’s CES is going to be kicking. Apple basically owned 2010 with the iPad and iPhone 4 while many other tech companies were still reaping the rewards of slashed R&D budgets in 2009.

Not this year. We’ll be getting smart phones and tablets galore with feature sets that knock our socks off. We’ll be getting 4G for high bandwidth and lots of internet connected devices of every sort. Chumby is looking to be big at CES this year. They are making a play at being the go to OS for internet enabled devices. Think picture frames, toasters and alarm clocks.

Any way, I’m not trying to run a CES preview here, but I do think that it will be a much more interesting show than usual this year. So if you are interested I might recommend spending a little quality time with your favorite tech blog of choice next weekend.

One other thing. Amazon sold a shit ton of Kindles for xmas. Between them and iPads I think the man sack will be the must have father’s day gift this year.

So have a happy new year, and in the words of Jay-Z

May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.
