CES Coverage and Thoughts

CES 2013 is coming and while I can’tr get excited about it, some of the coverage should be fun.

CES LogoThe Home Server Show and SurfaceGeeks will be providing live CES coverage. You can watch Dave run around the show floor at http://homeservershow.com/live and the schedule is at http://homeservershow.com/ces-2013-live-broadcast-schedule-liveces.html, although it may be easier to just assume the second half of the day, depending on your time zone, and tune in every evening.

As for myself, I have to admit CES doesn’t excite me. I’ll visit the Home Server Show coverage, but beyond that blogs that will be dedicated to CES coverage get temporarily deleted from my feed and any that slip through just get marked as read in bulk. I’m nearly burnt out on tech. My problem with CES is that it will promote a lot of products we’ll never see along with technology the manufacturers hope catch on. Once the hype of CES fades and products either appear or don’t I’ll get interested again. I don’t want to burn out on marketing, show me the cool tech I can get.

It’s probably because I’m getting old, but this year I want to concentrate on enjoying what I have, tweak it to make it better and not get lost in the hype or always reach for the “next big thing”.

But no matter, the Home Server Show coverage should still be fun.
