Om's CES reflections

Om posts his thinking about CES 2006. Overall he was not too impressed but leaves us with four things to ponder.
  1. The lack of networking standards and ease with which data can be shunted inside of the living room, will be the big obstacle that needs to be overcome before living room can be truly geeked out.
  2. Why set-top box is the method of mass deployment when it comes to cool technologies.
  3. The content announcements from CBS are just a way to appease Wall Street and showing investors that they are trying to do something to capture the “Internet” opportunity.
  4. Silicon Valley’s dismal record of producing CE devices. Despite the perceived success of TiVo, the only successful mass market CE device from Silicon Valley in recent years has been iPod.
