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.

NEW YORK â¿¿ Broadcast networks make a lot of their shows available on the Internet these days, but you usually have to wait at least a day after an episode airs on television. A subscription service called Aereo breaks those shackles and makes network programs available right away. That sounds too good to be true, and in a sense it is. 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.
