Gadget Bloggers Cover CES 2006

Posted on January 10, 2006

Blogging CES has been mandatory for all serious gadget blogs over the past few days. The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow. Tech journalists and gadget bloggers attend the event to learn about the latest gadgets and tech products. This year CES was held in Las Vegas.

CES posts will start slowly fading now that the conference is over but Technorati stills shows over 1,000 CES posts per day. This year also saw new CES blogs from Time, Reuters, CNET and Yahoo. And CNN launched a CES blog by Renay San Miguel -- although it lacked permalinks. There was even an odd character blog to promote Nuvi, a portable GPS and entertainment device.

Jeff Jarvis wonders if the event is getting too crowded in a post called CES OD: "So I wonder whether CES is such a good place to launch products anymore. You get buried; as soon as you make news, you're yesterday's news." Om Malik blogs that Macworld is the real CES.
