In Las Vegas, as soon as the New Year's revelry ends, the city gears up for another spectacle: CES, the electronics trade show that attracts industry participants from around the globe.
The International Consumer Electronics Show, by far the city's largest convention--with more than 150,000 attendees expected this week--gives manufacturers from Asia and Europe a chance to show off their latest smartphones, gadgets and TVs to potential customers in the U.S.--the world's biggest electronics market. Microsoft decided to leave, but a big chunk of its space has been taken over by Chinese TV maker Hisense, in what may be a symbolic changing of the guard. Stick around for all the biggest stories from the show, which runs Jan. 8-11.
