TechBits: Hot Technologies at CES (01.16)

      The Tech Guy is back from the Consumer Electronics Show, and has a look at some of this year's hot technologies and products.

      Large screen TVs with super-high resolution were featured this year, along with high end headphones from scores of companies.

      Technologies behind the products were also big, with home automation being at the forefront. {}Much of the home automation technology was driven by a wireless standard called Zigbee.

      Cloud technology was everywhere, with hundreds of products and services designed to take advantage of Internet connections, and the low expense of online storage. {}Taking your files with you is old-school; accessing files on the go is what's hot now.

      Gaming technology seemed just a small segment this year. {}Cases and other accessories for mobile devices were huge.
