Phones To Watch, And One That Is A Watch

LAS VEGAS -- Palm's Prē smartphone has drawn an enormous amount of attention here -- scroll down for more details about it -- but it's not the only noteworthy phone-related news at CES. Microsoft's Windows Mobile software is running on a wide variety of smartphones on display -- most of...

A Quick Tour of Windows 7

LAS VEGAS--The Microsoft keynote that opened CES this year was all over the map --- one tech-news site called it outright "schitzophrenic" -- but it did break one morsel of news between the video montages and the demos of unreleased products. That news is this: Windows 7, the company's successor...

HD Radio Picks Up Car Makers; Will Listeners Follow?

LAS VEGAS -- For the past several years, my CES itinerary has included a visit to the booth of Columbia-based iBiquity Digital Corp., the developer of the HD Radio system behind digital AM and FM broadcasts. And each year, I've received about the same message when I ask when this...

The Steadier State of the Flat-Panel TV

LAS VEGAS --The single most obvious, eye-catching device at this CES, as at every other one I've covered, is the flat-panel television. At first, flatness alone was enough to draw people's attention. Then manufacturers competed to see who could make the biggest flat-panel display (the record still belongs to the...

Palm Introduces Prē Smartphone

LAS VEGAS--Remember the company named Palm that made handheld organizers and smartphones that people used to anticipate and covet, before it stopped putting any effort into its software and started leaving its users to wonder if it would ever get its act together again? That company may be back. Palm...

CES Opening Acts: Samsung, Panasonic, Sony

LAS VEGAS--The Consumer Electronics Show's opening date is yet another departure from the truth in this city of artifice: Many companies get their news out of the way before the show formally opens. That list could start with Microsoft, which used last night's keynote address to announce the availability of...

Liveblogging Steve Ballmer's CES Keynote

LAS VEGAS--The keynote that opens CES isn't like the one that opens Macworld. There's not much surprise--Microsoft traditionally provides reporters an outline of the presentation a few days in advance. But Microsoft is a rather large software developer with a big footprint in the business, and it does tend to...

The End of Macworld (?), The Start of CES

SAN FRANCISCO --The fate of this one, not-too-large gathering called Macworld has a lot in common with some other transitions the Internet is forcing on established businesses -- say, bookstores and music stores with physical locations. In all these cases, the same question comes up: Can the Internet get the...

Scenes From a Macworld in Transition

SAN FRANCISCO -- Macworld may be all about the Mac, but it's not all about Apple. So after a quick stop by the Apple booth to clear up a few details left unsaid in the keynote, I spent yesterday afternoon talking to various developers scattered around the Moscone Center to...

Liveblogging the Macworld Keynote

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a few minutes from now, Steve Jobs will not give the keynote presentation that opens Macworld Expo here. Apple's bespectacled chief executive, clad in his typical jeans and black turtleneck, will not surprise the packed audience by unveiling new hardware and software, only some of them...

Steve Jobs Lives; Macworld Won't

Apple's last Macworld Expo starts tomorrow, but a lot of the suspense has already been taken out of the show. This morning, chief executive Steve Jobs put out an open letter on Apple's Web site to address questions about his health that have resurfaced since the company announced that Jobs...
