Once a year the geeks of the world gather at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES). This happens in early January every year. Itís a time to see the very newest gadgets in development and gadgets right around the corner for us. Keep reading to find out what was hot at this year's show.
This year wasn't as big as a hit as previous years due to the global economy. The demand for the highest level of tech devices simply isn't there right now. No fear though, there were still plenty of great devices and applications to be seen. So what were this year's highlights?
Though it isn't the official release, we did get the release of the beta of the next version of Windows, called Windows 7. Windows 7 is very similar to Vista in the kernel and components. The user interface has changed some; it is much more usable than any previous versions of Windows.
I have been using it as a day-to-day OS (mind you I'm not using it to deal with any important information), and it is very smooth. The more I used it, the more I realized just how much I like it. If you liked the glass effect and Aero, Windows 7 looks like the finished version of what Vista was suppose to be.
Though it's still beta, it's a lot more stable then Vista was at this point. Microsoft made the Windows 7 beta available to the public for free via download. There was such a high demand that the servers were down for a day as Microsoft brought more servers online to keep up. Naturally, it excited massive interest at CES. Look for the final version to come out around Christmas time.
