How New York Tech Is Poised to Lead 'Consumer Electronics'
This year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was notable, not so much for what was there as what has vanished. As Shelly Palmer so apply put it -- aisle after aisle of what used to fill stores like Best Buy are simply vanishing.

Point-and-shoot cameras, video cameras, music players, GPS systems, voice recorders, calculators, digital picture frames, and a hundred other products have all been rolled into smartphones and tablets."
