With CES (Consumer Electronics Show) starting soon, those of us who can’t make it there want to know how to stay updated. Chris Pirillo is on the case, with a good list of blogs and live streams which will be covering this year’s event. Read on:
January is a magical time if you’re a geek. It brings with it many sacred holidays, such as CES and MacWorld. But what if you can’t make the journey to mecca? Be it financial reasons, or maybe you just couldn’t book a hotel. Thankfully in this web-based world we live in, it’s easy to enjoy the whole event right from your comfy chair.
I’ve compiled a list of sites who will have live coverage of CES 2008.
