The Consumer Electronics Show ended this week. This is always a great time for the geeks, and I look forward to it.

This year seems kind of off. There were a lot of tablets, but since everyone is just waiting to see what Apple’s does, there was just not there to get excited about. It seems that in this space you need the first mover advantage, the bold move should have been made by a media company and not a hardware company.

The touchscreen is now in everything. I am up and down with this. On some applications it’s the only thing that makes sense,in others it’s just a lame product differentiation tactic. I have a touch screen desktop and it adds little. We have a touch screen for our lobby computer and it is not as good as it could be.

I ma excited about tablets, my job is a lot about filling out forms and if a good tablet can be hooked to a forms system ( maybe .pdf) then we may have a great little paperwork killer.
