The Consumer Electronics Show starts this weekend.  With 3,000 exhibitors and 150,000 attendees from over 150 countries, it’s the biggest tradeshow in America and possibly, the world.  This year the story is going to be big, bigger and biggest.  We’ll see new 84″ ultra HD sets from Sony and LG, a remarkable 110″ ultra HD set from Westinghouse and Samsung and, not to be outdone, Panasonic will be showing an unbelievable 156″ Ultra HD set.  In case you’re wondering, that’s a 13 foot diagonal set – which is bigger than most bedroom walls.  Of course, big, thin, awesome UltraHDTV sets are not the only thing we’re going to see at CES, there will be new powerful, ultrabooks and touch-screen all-in-one computers running Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system.  The rumor mill says that, Polaroid will show a new digital camera with interchangeable lenses that has WiFi and runs Android?  Wonder what it all means?  It means awesome new tech for 2013.
