CES 2014 may have been my quickest in ’n’ out trip to Las Vegas ever. I was in and out in fewer than 24 hours. But just in that time span, I managed to see a great deal of cool tech.
This year, as with every year, I always get the most out of CES by going to ShowStoppers. That’s because, in just a few short hours, that press event packs in most of the latest tech the industry has to offer. And it feeds me, too.
I was immediately interested in the latest Cloud Scanner from NEAT. Check out my colleague Todd Townsend’s video interview with these folks, here, or scroll below the fold for that and related videos.

I will also take an in-depth look at apps that were promoted on the “Wall Of Apps” show floor, like the styluses from LynkTec …

… and some small and mighty speakers from X-mini. Tiny!

Lastly, a special thanks to TripIt, whose TripIt Pro App has proven to me that it knows more than the agent behind the counter.
There’s a lot to look forward to in 2014, and I’ll be back soon with the details. Watch for more of my CES 2014 coverage as I continue my recovery program — and get some time to get my head around all this new tech.
