CES COVERAGE:

GADGET SHOW-WEIRD GADGETS

LAS VEGAS â¿¿ From an electronic fork that tells you when to put it down to glitch-ridden TVs that occasionally respond to voice commands, the International CES show is a forum for gadget makers to take big chances. A lot of the prototypes they unveil at the show fail in the marketplace. But the innovators who shop their wares here are fearless when it comes to pitching new gizmos. Here's a look at some of the wackiest devices introduced at this year's show. By Ryan Nakashima and Barbara Ortutay.

It's a great deal for people who mostly watch broadcast television and not a lot of sports, which are primarily on cable TV channels. The company says it's expanding to additional markets this spring. By Technology Writer Anick Jesdanun.
