With all that talk of conferences last week, we decided to head back to the CES  2011 footage to bring you the best consumer products.  Check out the SHOW PAGE for details about Tom’s interviews with some of the biggest names on the floor at this year’s show.  3D TVs – check. Connected appliances – check. A Watson of your very own – we are working on it.

We have some great shows coming up over the next month.  Tony Bradley and Gabe are slated to drop in before too long along with new guests and topics.

Listen to the show on 1100 KFNX’s website on Sunday at 5pm EST and 3pm MST.  Click the KFNX logo on the right to go to their site.  Check the SHOW PAGE early next week for the Week In Review links and commercial free podcast.





Wait. What Happened?

Tom went to CES is what happened.  While he was there, he battled a cold to travel into the deepest depths of the North and South Halls.  This week, we have our first show coming out of the event. Check out the SHOW PAGE for the entire scoop.

Where was the producer all weekend?  I spent the weekend at Nashville GiveCamp – an event sponsored by Microsoft.  Read more about that on the national GiveCamp site or the local site for the event I attended.

We are excited to have Gabe Goldberg back on January 23 to talk about ‘Buying Tech at the Sweet Spot’ – be sure to put that on your calendar.





Do you CES what we CES?

Each year the technology industry makes a pilgrimage to the desert.  The International Consumer Electronics Show is [insert a “doesn’t get any bigger than this”] metaphor.  Tom is on the floor as I type …or he is on a plane …I don’t handle that …anyway, Tom is at CES as far as you are concerned.

So, what are you going to do while I put together a great CES show?  Listen to a new Week in Review and and an encore presentation of our Contingency Planning & Management 2010 coverage. Find out more and get Week In Review links on the SHOW PAGE.

Black-eyed peas to start the year off right

This week, we bring you our 2010 GovTech coverage after a new Week In Review that includes a CES Kick-Off with Robin Raskin – find out more on the SHOW PAGE.  It’s our first show of the year, but we have luck on our side.

Most people from the south just accept black-eyed peas will be there at some point on New Year’s Day.  It is supposed to be lucky.  Sounds like a wiley turn of the century marketer with too many beans and snake oil.  But if finding out historical what-nottery is your thing, there are some links below with plenty of people telling you how it really started (ie what each read on Wikipedia).  I am sticking with the wiley marketer.  I am not sure how it started, but I can’t argue with tradition – especially when said tradition includes hog jowl for flavor.  If you don’t know what a jowl is…you probably do not want to know.  What does all of this have to do with anything?  Nothing much.  It just looks better when the boss clicks through to make sure the website is being updated if there are more words.  So, let’s all just keep real quiet and keep reading…you’ll get your tech fix. And that’s how the first World War really started. Thanks, Grampa.

Since 1967, The Consumer Electronics Show has wowed us and showed us the technology we would covet over the next year.  The show started in New York but migrated to Las Vegas after a period of two shows per year – one in the east and one in the west.  With whirlwind product cycles, the Internet, virtual conferences and shrinking T&E budgets, CES has done quite well to keep attracting the crowds.  A few notable debuts at CES include the VCR in 1970, the Laserdisc in 1974 (yes, SEVENTY FOUR!), HDTV in 1998 and many more… including a 10 year anniversary of the Xbox’s 2001 debut. Happy Birthday, Xbox!

This week, we’ll have a new Week In Review and follow it with an encore presentation of our “Information Overload” show with Gabe Goldberg.  Check the SHOW PAGE for more details on the show and the Week In Review story links after the show airs on Sunday at 6pm EDT | 3pm MST in Phoenix.  Catch it live on the web or on 1100 KFNX in the Phoenix area.

The site of the week is LostMyDoggie.com. They offer three tiers of service to help you find your lost dog.  For prices of $40, $75 or $115, they will create and mail fliers, make automated phone calls or both, respectively.  That’s a small price to pay for an important member of the family.  We like it so much, we put a link to the service on our site (on the right).

We tweeted it but wanted to remind everyone its time to sign up for CES 2011 in Las Vegas. Save $100 on the total cost if you register before September 1. Do that here.

Don’t forget you can get our shared news throughout the week, along with shows and blog posts delivered to your inbox.

We also found a new service from Twitter on NYT.

So, tweet it loud –
