At CES, the pundits worried over the super-high cost of super-high resolution televisions. And then there was the lack of Ultra HD content. But a forthcoming compression standard appears to be the fix, and Apple is already in the thick of it.

Intel-powered Ultrabooks were everywhere at CES 2012. But can they beat Apple at its own game?
When Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak visited Australia last year, he made predictions about where the technology industry would be going over the next year. Almost six months to the day, Wozniak's predictions have come to fruition in Las Vegas in the form of voice-controlled everything at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
As expected, Canonical showed a version of its Linux-based Ubuntu operating system for TV sets at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, along with an in-car entertainment system. Ubuntu TV sets could appear this year, to compete with Google TV sets running Android -- which so far have failed in the marketplace -- and the widely-predicted Apple TV.
Google TV is under heavy pressure to show some successes as Apple supposedly readies a TV set and Microsoft continues to steal the connected living room thunder with its Xbox 360 console. In advance of CES, the company has announced a new partner, as well as further commitments from a few previously announced partners.
The mass display of me-too tablets at the CES last week is a testament to the tablet that Jobs built. While everyone else plays catch-up, Apple could shake things up again with a little iPad.
After a flurry of news at CES, Verizon has one more card up its sleeve -- a big one -- and it will reveal it on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. Is it the Apple iPhone?
Apple was never going to keep quiet with the rest of the tech world focusing on announcements from CES, and news duly arrived today that the Mac App Store had launched with, Apple claims, over 1,000 free and paid-for apps available.To access the store, you'll need to update Snow Leopard to version 10.
Now everyone is gearing up their tablet computer TV promotion spots. Hewlett-Packard has debuted an ad for the HP Slate, the gadget's first major appearance since CES 2010. Considering the HP Slate less than wowed people at CES and how much the Apple iPad captivated the public at their own press event following CES, HP and Microsoft have a lot of work to do in attracting buyers to their tablet.
I have mentioned several times here on this blog how much I like using my B&N nook, including how nothing I saw at CES could knock it out of my hands. However, I have been thinking quite a bit about this upcoming Apple Tablet device to be announced in a few hours and honestly think it could take the place of the nook as an ebook reader. The revelation last night from McGraw-Hill's CEO that the Tablet runs the iPhone OS actually has me more excited about the device than if it ran the OS X, from an ebook reader perspective.

CES 2010: Before we can even get some official information on the heavily/overly-rumored Apple Tablet, Freescale Semiconductor has gotten there first, with their announcement of a potentially $200 tablet computer.
Acting Apple CEO Tim Cook may have just sent a thinly veiled threat Palm's way over the Pre.As most folks know, Palm made a big splash at CES with the Pre and hit a home run that may have saved the company.
There's been a lot of discussion over last week's rumor that Apple is forsaking Macworld Expo and will instead make the the 600 mile drive south east to Las Vegas to exhibit at CES instead.Regardless of where you stand on the rumor CNet News.
I wouldn't believe any buzz that might surface this weekend about Apple looking to "go large" at CES next year, now that Steve Jobs and company have dumped Macworld. No way.
A salacious rumor (originating at Cult of Mac) making the rounds here in San Francisco is that Apple will be exhibiting at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in 2010.The source, citing “friends who work at Apple,” insisted the company is ditching MacWorld (sic) because it will “go large” at CES, which typically runs concurrently with MacWorld in early January.
Exhibitors at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco are taking advantage of deals for next year's show, if it happens. On the show floor, some say a Apple pavilion at CES in Las Vegas might be a better option.
The tech community is gearing up for CES and Macworld Expo 2009 events this week and it is expected there will be new from the large computer makers, Apple, HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc. However, did you know that Nokia is now the world's largest computer maker with 13.8% of market share? HP, Dell, Apple, Acer, Lenovo, RIM, and Toshiba follow in the stats. These numbers only include the Nokia smartphones and not all of the Nokia mobile phones (Series 40 phones are quite powerful too, but not included) or devices (Nokia Internet Tablets are not included), which would increase their numbers even more.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs strides across the stage of the Macworld Expo keynote on Tuesday and the computer industry pauses for an hour and holds its collective breath. Again, Apple delivered the goods, in hardware innovation, in services and in partnerships. What a contrast to last week's pathetic performance of Microsoft — the industry leader, right? — at the CES show in Las Vegas.
