It’s no secret that with a new year comes another edition of Las Vegas’ massive Consumer Electronics Show (or CES to the initiated). Although it’s a show formally unattended by Apple, there’s always something to see for those interested in Apple and the markets it inhabits. This year, Macworld’s Philip Michaels and Jason Snell were in attendance and report in from a parking lot beneath Vegas’ not-as-quiet-as-you-might-imagine monorail.
