"Thursday, Jan. 6 marks the beginning of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Unlike many of its biggest rivals, Apple doesn't play the CES game. So what does the show have to offer the average Apple user? At least two things: accessories and a sense of superiority."
A list of several items that might interest those of us in the Apple camp, even if Apple isn't going to really be on display at CES. One that caught my eye was the SpiderPodium from Breffo, an interesting looking stand for your iPad that reminds me of the Joby line of products. Also, I'm interested in what MiLi comes up with for Apple products. I love their aesthetic and they are supposed to be bringing an iPad dock/charger set up that will let you hook up your iPad to any HD TV. I'm not sure about you, but I always look forward to CES, in spite of the fact that Apple doesn't participate. And as far as that sense of superiority? I just want stuff to work with minimal interference from me, that's why I usually defer to Apple products, but I have been known to buy non-Apple products from time to time. What are your thoughts on CES and what do you hope to see from there?
