CES: Land of cables, tricked-out rides and home theaters…


Well, 2006 International CES has kicked off and executives from 64+ Florida companies are glad-handing, beaming business cards and generally playing with stuff in Las Vegas. Not only is Florida well represented with boothage, but a good number of local companies are out there with partners/customers and demo suites — for example, WiDeFi has a full slate of suite meetings without manning a booth.

For fun, I did a quick review of Florida’s listed presenters and the list is included below. For a guy who loves high-tech with proprietary HW/SW, I was a bit surprised by how many people are there selling cables, car audio and home theaters — not that there’s anything wrong with that. On the kewl gizmo front, EdgeTech’s PocketSurfer and Video Without Boundaries’ FlyBoy both look worth a pickup and play. ChannelIntelligence, Intellon, WiDeFi, Authentec and a few others are on the venture track and hopefully CES will bring even more customers/partners. Here’s hoping all Florida attendees win big out in Las Vegas…
