The 2011 Consumer Electronics Expo has officially started and over 150,000 people are here to see what the future of technology has in store. It’s only day one and there are plenty of things to be excited about. First up, Comcast is releasing an app that will allow customers to stream on-demand content right to their iPad. Over 3,000 hours of content will be available at launch with future plans for real-time TV viewing. Still want to cancel cable? In other news, AT&T revealed plans for Android Honeycomb-based tablets that will take advantage of the future LTE network. The new infrastructure will be nationwide by 2013, with compatible tablets, phones, modems and hotspots coming in the second half of 2011. And finally, LG’s Thinq technology is giving your household appliances a mind of their own. While your refrigerator won’t tell you if you ran out of salsa, you might just be able to lower that utilities bill with these grid-conscious appliances.
