Welcome to CES! Here Are All the New Gadgets...

By Kat Hannaford on at

Did you know that a large chunk of the following year's gadgets get unveiled at CES, the trade show that takes over Las Vegas every single January? Some CES gadgets never go on sale (helloooo, Lady Gaga's Polaroid glasses!), and some completely take us by surprise (looking at you, Palm Pre).

Like my pal Joe Brown says over at Gizmodo US, a lot of tech journalists and bloggers bitch and moan about CES because it's a week of very long hours; sub-par announcements, and more walking than the average tech blogger does in a year. But I love it. Not least because it means getting to eat like a Yankee for one week of the year.

Speaking of eating, here's all the news that's been let out of the CES-bag so far. Bookmark this page, as we'll be adding links to all the news, features and videos every day.
