Is this the end of CES? That’s one question I’ll be trying to answer as I walk the acres-long trade show floor. I’ll also be searching for the one true thing: that awesome product that makes the whole endeavor worthwhile.
It’s turning out to be an odd year for the 40-plus-year-old trade show. Microsoft announced just weeks before the big event in Las Vegas that 2012 would be, essentially, its last CES. No more keynotes, no more trade show booth.
