A big theme at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been the connected home. There are televisions connected to the Cloud; refrigerators connected to the Internet; heating, lighting and security systems connected to sensors and monitors. And IBM wants all of those devices to be connected to its Cloud.
There is a growing discontent over digital privacy issues, but legislation would have a chilling effect on the development of new apps and ecosystems. That was the conclusion of a panel entitled "The Smartphone-Tablet Economy: Apps, Devices, Commerce and the Consumer Obsession" today at CES.
Despite its name, the annual Consumer Electronics Show isn't wholly consumer tech. These seven announcements--covering data analytics, collaboration, RAM and more--may impact the systems and devices your employees use in 2013.
