Every year the International Consumer Electronics Show is organized in Las Vegas. It's the event that basically jump-starts each year in the world of IT, hi-tech, and consumer electronics. Hundreds of companies attend this event, showing off their “goodies” to an audience of thousands of visitors from every part of the world. CES always has a dominant trend each year. Here we’ll explore this year’s most likely trend.
What do we mean by a dominant trend? Well, you see, with the current technology advancements it's really hard to review past years' most outstanding inventions, accomplishments, and basically trends that dominated the year in its entirety. Thus, it's more difficult to predict what's going to happen in the future. Sure, companies expose excerpts of their visions and future goals but combining all of them while trying to find one single thread that connects each is a tough task -- but not impossible.
In this article our mission is to analyze closely and try to define the most dominant trend of CES 2008. Keep in mind, this isn't a coverage article. We cannot give a brief overview of everything that was exposed at Vegas because it'd be overwhelming. All that we can do is connect the dots, find the dominant trend, and then discussing its possible effect on our way of living and the world of hi-tech.
In the past few years there were similar dominant trends that really changed the way we (consumers, but companies aren't excluded) approach IT. A half-decade ago the odds weren't in favor of something like HD-DVD and high-definition Blu-Ray to dominate the IT sphere, right? Who would have ever guessed that the so-called "war" between these two could ever define the progress and inclination of an entire year?
We hope that our introduction was challenging enough and that you can't wait to find out what's going to happen in 2008. Let's turn the page and continue!
