The Reviewed.com staff filed into conference after conference on Monday, cameras ready and notepads primed. There’s no rest to be had on Press Day at CES 2013. How could anyone rest, when tempted with product teases from the likes of Samsung, Sony, Canon, and LG?
Conference highlights included Samsung’s flashy display of, well, displays: plenty of tablets and televisions. Panasonic showed off their revamped line of appliances, including a bright purple coffee machine.
No conference is without its share of highs and lows, though. Fujifilm’s show was supported by a beautiful soundtrack, making it one of the sexiest conferences by default. The world might never truly know why Casio’s panel was host to a talking hologram of a shape-shifting ice cream cone. Sony’s flagship Smart TV had not one but two “blue screens of death” on startup.
It’s a bizarre silicon jungle out there.
