If you didn't make it the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (consider yourself lucky), there are plenty of sites that allow you to experience the event vicariously, without the smoke, congestion and acres of products that seem like the same ones on display as last year.

CNET.com came up with the Best of Show picks (watch the video of the Best of Show awards), and it doesn't include the 150-inch Panasonic plasma display, which was all over the news. The overall best of show went to the Philips Eco TV, a 42-inch, 1080p resolution, flat-panel LCD that includes the ability to dim the backlight in response to program material.

My favorite among the picks is Bug Labs, a hardware mashup platform for building the "long tail" of handheld devices.
