CES 2013: Tech Weekly Recap

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Consumer Electronics Show was the talk of tech this week. It was a who's who of the sector, with many notable companies, such as Intel (INTC), Qualcomm (QCOM) and Broadcom (BRCM) in attendance.

TheStreet covered CES live, meeting up with some of the key players and attending press conferences that wowed the masses. Samsung was one of the bigger ones, showing off its latest television sets and taking a few shots at competitor Apple (AAPL).

Samsung's new flagship F8000 television is a sight to behold with its LED screen and incredibly beautiful picture. It comes in sizes from 46 inches to 75 inches, and uses a feature called Intelligent Viewing to help the consumer make better choices when searching for content. What really took my breath away, though, were the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) TVs with built-in speaker systems that look like a work of art. These TVs come in Ultra HD, and are poised to change the way people watch television in the future.

CES Day One Recap

TVs were certainly the hot item this year, with Sharp also showing off its latest and greatest, albeit to a more muted reaction. Chip companies Broadcom and Qualcomm showed off their latest silicon. Broadcom CEO Scott McGregor sat down for an exclusive interview with TheStreet to talk about Ultra HD, which the company announced a new chip for this year.

CES: Day Two Recap


Though CES was the big news this week, some other companies managed to steal some of the limelight, such as Facebook (FB), which announced a major press event, set for next Tuesday.

"Come and see what we're building," the invite said. There's plenty of speculation about what Facebook will show off next week in Menlo Park, Calif., including a search engine, a deal with Netflix (NFLX) or, less likely, a phone.

Yours truly will be attending the event and live-blogging all the news. Las Vegas one week. California the next. No rest for the weary, that's for sure.

Facebook shares gained 10% this past week to close Friday at $31.72 on excitement surrounding the event.
