Tech Industry: CES 2008 wish list

2:14 /

Molly Wood prepares for CES 2008 and ticks off some of the things we're hoping to see this year.

,[ music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hey I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com, getting ready mentally and physically for the Consumer Electronics Show 2008. I've got my comfy shoes packed, the cameras are at the ready, and I am ready for some extremely awesome developments in consumer electronics. Maybe. CES tends to be a little more evolutionary than revolutionary if you know what I mean? But I'm still hoping, and here's what's on my CES 2008 wish list. First up, entertainment. Won't someone please solve our streaming media, streaming TV remotely, wireless media extender issues with just one box? Please? One box that streams media from your computer to your TV, from your TV to your computer, all around your house, wirelessly? It's no big deal, right? We are begging you. No more Windows Media Center and Apple TV and Slingbox plus Slingcatcher, just one box, please. Another hot category at CES in recent years, robotics. You get your new iRobot doo-dads, and your little walking wowee toys, and your robotic vaccums, and your R2D2 projectors. But you know what I'm looking for? Rosie from the Jetsons. Or at least her great-great-great-great grandmother, at least. Like you take your Ossimo and you take your little oobot dealie, and you give me a robot I can use. And finally, let's talk convergence. Every year we see another gadget that can sorta kinda do it all. Last year there was the Nokia N95 uber phone, and this year I'm sure we'll see things like the Kowen [assumed spelling] Q5 and other sort of tablet laptops, smart phone portable media player things that are supposed to replace all your gadgets. And they all seem really cool, but for some reason none of them are quite right. But I really want to want one. So take like an iPhone, that's also a smart phone, plus an internet tablet, or an internet tablet that can do some bluetooth dialing, or I don't know, like a kindle that isn't just a bundle of locked up potential, and just make we want one, make me one I want. There you go. And also on my wish list this year, a peaceful and sustainable human society, just to keep things in perspective. [ background music ] For CNET.com I'm Molly Wood. See you in Vegas. ^M00:02:07 [ music ]
