CES is like Cherry Blossom time in Japan or on the Potomac. Or Mel Brooks' Springtime for Hitler! Just a great way to start fresh and see if the industry can get it rightâ€¦this time. Before Shapiro could open the festivities, Google's Schmidt decided he'd pull a Steve and take the wind out of Shapiro's CES sails with his Nexus One unveiling.

Our kids do nearly everything on their smartphones or netbooks. Because we're slightly retarded, they use email for us. For everyone else -- friends, schoolmates, relationships -- they max out all of the capabilities, features and benefits of today's Web 2.0 social media. They simply look at us and repeat Graves's words, "I have to live my dreams." They aren't alone! "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." - Raul, Die Another Day (MGM - 2002)
The words innovation, efficiency and multitasking may not have been invented in Silicon Valley and the other technology enclaves, but they were refined, honed, perfected in these areas. When the economy stagnated, financial analysts and economists were quick to say the PC/CE/communications industry centers of hyperactivity had lost their edge.

In fact, other countries were becoming the technology hotspots, generating the ideas and the products.
Kids don't watch much TV with us anymore. They use their Roku units. They log onto their favorite shows. They YouTube oldies but goodies. They watch shows from Spain, France and Mexico (one is studying French, the other Spanish). They're watching how-to YouTube segments. They watch the stuff on their smartphones and their notebooks...not the TV. That's got Tellywood worried because they don't control that much anymore. True ...the only person you hate worse than the phone person is the cable guy! How will our content life change?

The factory dominated the 19th Century. Everything evolved around it. People spent their lives working for the man. Today less than 15% of the U.S. employees work in production or manufacturing. The 20th Century was dominated by the office. According to the department of labor by the end of last year at least 44% of the employees were gathering, processing, retrieving and analyzing information...in the office.
