CES 2010 and Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas

I arrived in Las Vegas two weeks before CES's opening date of January 7th to research venue options for Cloud Computing Expo 2011. During my first cab ride from the airport to the Venetian, I asked my driver how "Shelly" was doing. He replied, "You mean Sheldon Adelson?" I said, "Yes." The driver said, "He is not doing well. I heard he has started suffering from amnesia. They say he is forgetting things. I hope he gets better. He lost a ton of money too." If you visit Las Vegas, you get the latest news and gossip from cab drivers. Adelson is the luckiest man in Las Vegas history in my humble opinion. He built Comdex from scratch, then sold it to Softbank for a billion dollars, or close to it anyway. My second cab driver said, "The town will never see another Comdex again." If you look at the Las Vegas skyline you see more unfinished high rises than you will see in M... (more)

My Thoughts on the Apple iPad

iPhone Apps on Ulitzer iPhone Apps on Ulitzer - The Apple iTablet or iSlate is due to be shown off to the world January 27th, and unleashed on us sometime in March. The blogosphere has been buzzing about the topic. Joe Wilcox of BetaNews.com said “The world doesn’t need an Apple Tablet, or any other” (full post here). MG of TechCrunch followed up with “The World Doesn’t Need Someone Telling Us What We Don’t Need In Tech” (full post here).  I think both writers make some good points, but I wanted to give my thoughts, and ask the readers of CTOvision theirs. The Apple Tablet is rumored to cost $1000. So the first word that comes to my mind is “overpriced.”  When you can purchase a decent netbook for under $300, a solid ultra-portable 12-14″ (laptop) for $500, and a good business laptop for under $700…why would you ever pay $1000 for a simple tablet?  Quite frankly, I...
