Well, welcome to Day Three of your redesigned GLITR. Hope you’re enjoying it. Now, on to what else is new and cool!
* Once again, here’s the International CES roundup from the tech news experts at CNet’s News.com, now a CBS property, by the way.
* And yes, as a matter of fact, I would like a 110-inch 4K UHD TV.
* And while Microsoft and Steve Ballmer are no longer giving a CES keynote, Detroit native Ballmer was a surprise speaker Tuesday — as a guest of Qualcomm in its star-studded keynote.
* Meanwhile, Verizon’s keynote is an eye-rolling snoozer, News.com says.
* And how about this gadget, which turns brain waves into gadget commands?
* And here’s a look at the car show that is very much a part of CES.
* Meanwhile, Barry Diller’s live-TV-over-the-Internet service soldiers on, despite lawsuits.
* And it wasn’t just your imagination — 2012 was indeed the warmest ever year in the United States, breaking all recorded history.
* And in the middle of a record breaking heat wave, Australia is forced to add a new color to its weather graphics, as the heat literally goes off the charts.
* Google is offering free Wi-Fi in a New York City neighborhood.
* In space news, NASA’s Curiosity probe uses its rock scrubber for the first time.
* Rut-ro. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the big-windowed, high-tech, super-comfy plane I can’t wait to ride in, is having troubles.
* Finally, U.S. stocks fell Tuesday on earnings concerns.
