ExtraBITS for 16 January 2012
Just two quick bits this week: a pointer to the Macworld | iWorld T-shirt contest and some general coverage of CES that makes the show sound like an easy one to miss.
Macworld | iWorld T-Shirt Contest — This is fun — the Macworld | iWorld folks are having a t-shirt contest (dry, thank you, we’re geeks) to shine a light on some of the coolest t-shirts in the Apple world. We’re planning to hunt through our massive collection of vintage Mac shirts for some suitable entries.
CES Press Day Shows You’re Not Missing Much — From CNET’s coverage, the Consumer Electronics Show press day sounded uninspired. The PC world is getting into ultrabooks (think of a MacBook Air running Windows), there are new TVs that don’t look all that different from old TVs, smartphone manufacturers are trying out large-screen models that won’t fit in a pocket, 3-D printers are still kind of expensive, and cameras will increasingly have Wi-Fi. Oh, and Microsoft will no longer exhibit at CES.
