For all its fuss and noise I found CES more and more disappointing from year to year, with 90% of exhibits being just gimmicks with fancy names. Without any doubts CES is the world’s most overhyped show for the most overhyped technology. That’s why I prefer more reserved European tech shows like IFA and Cebit.
