Watching CES 2013: Events and Trends

Some of the news events that occurred at CES

The team at IDG Enterprise (including Network World, Computerworld and CIO.com) and the IDG News Service created more than 50 videos last week at 2013 International CES, covering everything from news events, computers, smartphones, tablets and other electronic gadgets. In this post, we are highlighting videos from some of the events that took place at the show, whether it was a visit by a former U.S. President, or tech glitches that occurred during a major press conference: First up, former U.S. President Bill Clinton gave a speech at the technology trade event:

Finally, we were able to capture a small glitch - during Sony's press conference, one of the monitors experienced a "blue screen" (although discussion in the comments revolve around whether this was a blue screen of death or just a standard BIOS boot-up sequence). Regardless of whether it was a full crash or not, it's not always the best timing when your presentation experiences something like this.
