Michael Gartenberg says it’s going to be a year of maturation at CES. Michael tends to really know his stuff and I have to admit, most of the news out of Engadget of late has been about convergence of technology.
I expect a lot of focus on usability this year. The past few years, certain devices have become abominations of usability harkening back 20 years (certain high def players as an example ahem). Having just built a home media server and dealt once again with the incompatibilities of video formats between my camera, my Media Center (Xbox) and my portable player, I can truly relate to his sentiment.
