LAS VEGAS--We're very excited for our first official show from the CNET stage at CES 2010, and it seems like the entire conference is buzzing about the latest in 3D technology! We're still working on getting 3D for our show, so you'll have to settle for us throwing cameras, USB keys, and printers at the camera in the meantime.
Today's show kicks off with a preview of what you can expect from this year's conference, starting with news about the future of home theater and a batch of 3D TVs that stream 3D content over the existing 2D landscape, replete with fabulously gaudy "active-shutter" glasses, sold separately of course. Per usual, Jeff retains a healthy dose of skepticism about the trend, but Wilson and I are excited about the prospect of enjoying sports and movies in true 3D.
We're also looking forward to Steve Ballmer's keynote speech at the show, where he'll supposedly reveal details about a new HP multitouch tablet computer. Piggybacking on last year's news of the Microsoft Courier, the "slate-type computer" will join the ranks of Apple and Lenovo for tablets to be released in 2010.
With all the excitement surrounding CES, we're all itching for a chance to meet Lady Gaga, who will be making several appearances at the show to promote her Monster Heartbeat headphones and speak to her recent multiyear partnership with Polaroid as Creative Director. Although the project is still in infancy, we're hoping that the pop star will reinvigorate the popular brand with her unique style and direction.
Finally, we wrap up today's episode of The 404 with a rundown of the top 10 movies to watch in 2010, which includes the new Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe, Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island, Iron Man 2, The Social Network with Justin Timberlake, and many more. We also have plenty of surprise guests and 404 merchandise giveaways to look forward to, so be sure to check us out live at 4PM PT on CNET TV for plenty more fun!
