This week is the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Over 140,000 people will come to see more than 2,700 exhibitors, showing off everything from microchips to television sets. Despite fewer companies using the expo for product announcements, we’re sure to see some exciting technology. In other news, a report found that iPhone 4S users are consuming twice as much data as those using previous models. Apple’s Siri virtual assistant has consumers using the smartphone’s functions way more often. Siri relies on the phone’s data connection, putting even more pressure on wireless carriers’ networks. And finally, Vizio, the company known for making low priced HDTVs and Blu-Ray players, announced that it would start manufacturing computers. Vizio has spent the past two years designing sleek models to rival Apple’s, while working to keep the price as low as possible.
