What to expect in CES 2018

Yes, many did, but this is one of those technology things that has been in the pipeline for more than 5 years now and needs both a little more time to implement and better understanding.   

I already get up to 1Gbps on 4G, I don’t think 5G is really a necessity tbh.

It's not just speed, although 1Gb/s is currently rare on 4g (area wise) the advantage to the newer (and changing) specs of 5g is that it can handle more users with lower latency and current tests have speeds upto 6.4Gb/s.   More users is important as more devices are becoming part of the IoT and they are becoming more mobile.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

CES 2019: Smart doorknob which adjusts it's temperature so when you touch it it's a t the perfect temperature

CES 2020: Smart air which doesn't wait for you to breathe it, it comes in to your nose automatically.

CES 202SMART/ Smart Smart. Smart smart smart smart, smart smart smart. Smar smart!

IoT has business applications, and quite a good number of them. It's a bit more useful than 3D printing, but minus terrible OpSec violations, it's pretty worthless in-home tech.

 

But the real problem IoT in the home has comes down to the reality that it's nothing "new". It's minor control/UI/modification implementations for existing appliances. The improvements are incredibly minor, cost a lot, make your home horribly compromised to outside attackers with computer skills and is likely to cause you far more problems than it solves.

 

It also needs to be noted that they've been talking about the "Wired" home since at least the 90s, and it still doesn't really improve much of anything. The more important improvements have come from the building materials side of things.

Haha, that smart garbage can example is...pointless. The list looks rather lackluster, but that's not surprising. CES isn't meant for consumers. Not sure what The Verge is on about either. What the hell do they mean by graphics enclosures improving low level systems? You don't build one and buy an enclosure.

IoT scares me so much. There ways of hacking it. So many devices that are so vulnerable. Thank god I did my dissertation on IoT security and challenges. People need to realise your data can be easily obtained.

I'm hopeful that we'll see stuff like Kaby Lake G and the 2700u, oh and probably some interesting monitors.

The R7 2700, 2700X and 2800X would be more exciting I'd say. And yeah, the Kaby Lake G would be pretty sweet to finally get some proper numbers on (subtract 30% for non-gaming tasks lel)

I just want to see better and cheaper motherboards for Ryzen, as well as new and exciting PC cases.

Yep. It's supposed to launch in Q1 with expected IPC gains.

no ipc gains, but clock speed increases (10%), maybe (not confirmed at all ) a better imc

Regarding smart cities, does this mean that you would need to be connected to the 4/5 g the entire time and that everything would require its own application (yayy, just few dozen applications for each part of the city).

Isn't the entire concept of IoT silly?Why would home appliances need to be connected to the internet (doesn't some cryptocurrency depend heavily on IoT devices?)?

I just want for someone to announce the mainstream replacement for Lithium Ion batteries like Graphene nanotechnology batteries. Modern Lithium Ion batteries are great but just like AHCI that was succeeded by NVME, it needs a refresh that’s better and safer. Even for just a graphene battery bank that can store 2000 mAh on a smaller form factor would be very nice. 

 

But then this is just me wishful thinking. 5G is exciting but I doubt I’d see that rolled out to us when our crony duopolist wireless carriers still can’t be bothered to roll out 20x20 MHz LTE-Advanced which is the true 4G. ?


There is more that meets the eye

It is, to most of the people in the first world and by extension the human race. But when you've spent your life insulated in a wealthy California-borne bubble of trendy liberal luxury and are fast-tracked into entrepreneurship by friends and family, you inadvertently lose a lot of interest in the rest of the world and become disconnected from it all.

 

Most of silicon valley doesn't care about everyone else, even domestically. The average consumer is in the same boat as the Nigerian commoner for all they care, serving as mind fodder for their generalised and ignorant caricatured set of convictions about the world. In a few words, they're drunk on wealth. The Internet of Things is a positive outcome of that.

More variations of good HDR gaming monitors and hopefully not all ultra wide and curved. 

As far as strong year for PC gaming, hopefully components will have good prices. But I guess that will take some time so we'll see.

  1. HDR monitors galore
  2. Z-nand SSD's?
  3. Finally new DDR modules at lower prices
  4. Finally new SSD's at lower prices (nvme)
  5. More OLED stuff, including monitors (though pointless)
  6. µLED panels from Samsung

I’m hoping for more Ruben Mobile PCs to be announced. It completely destroys iGPUs on Intel’s side.


Who needs fancy graphics and high resolutions when you can get a 60 FPS frame rate on iGPUs?

VR/AR has always been over-hyped for what it offers. It's been on the precipice for years and it's gotten no traction at a reasonable level. 

One of the huge problems VR has, is that for most games/experiences, racing and flight sims aside, is it needs a lot of free space to use properly. Most people living in a densely populated country and/or city aren't going to have the space to utilize it, and if they wish to acquire the space the cost will dwarf the cost of the hardware.

Yeah, that's what it stands for. Do you know what it is?

It's a forum for those who have ideas and imerging tech, hoping that it'll be bought by a larger company. Or, the larger companies can showcase future technology to others. It's for business, not consumer. It was only in the last few years the general public even started attending.

An electronic device that's marketed to Joe Blow is called a consumer electronic. Hence Consumer Electronics Show. ;)

CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

I'm not even surprised, CES isn't for consumers even though C stands for Consumer, what a beautiful world we live in...xD
