CES 2016 in Las Vegas is Rolling Along

So CES 2016 is all about automobiles, home entertainment, and the Internet of Things - Wearable Technology. There is a lot to see, like the new LG Ultra-thin, Roll Up HD prototype - giving us a glimpse of the future of display technology. LG Electronics debuted some ultra-high-definition televisions, including a bendable one. It is a mere 2.57 millimeter-thin OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) television that impressed a lot of onlookers. The screen can be rolled up and stored away if necessary. PC and mobile device makers are rolling out their latest models for the new year, which means there is a throng of new hardware products vying for attention. Lenovo is included in that list, having introduced one of the show's more prominent products with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. At first glance, the device appears to be a typical tablet or perhaps even a two-in-one hybrid. But further inspection reveals why this tablet deserves a closer look. While technology over the past few years have become very user driven with home and personal technology, Enterprise IT will be watching CES 2016 closely to see what changes will impact the way business operates as well.
