CES is where the technology year kicks off: It's a gigantic trade show (more than 170,000 attendees are expected) where the biggest names in consumer electronics converge on Las Vegas to show off the tech that will dominate our lives in the next decade. And press day at the show -- the day before the show floor actually opens -- is where the bulk of the news actually hits.
