Reporting 'live, as it happens', especially at an electronics trade show, does have some drawbacks.  You benefit from the feeling of being there and capturing the moment and get to see a lot of cool new kit for the first time without waiting for a full write up.  That quickness does tend to make the reporting a little more shallow since there simply isn't time to full cover all the details.  Ars Technica has revisited a lot of what they covered at CES in a more indepth fashion, which you can see h

If the videos that Ryan posted over the weekend still haven't satisfied your desire to see everything that was on display at CES 2009, follow the links below and you can pretty much be guaranteed to have caught as much coverage as is humanly possible.  You can start off by taking a look at the current tablet for the OLPC project as captured by The Tech Report.  It isn't a powerful gaming laptop by any means, it's a fairly simple Atom based tablet with a 60GB hard drive that only weighs 2.8lbs, perfect for a child

One of the biggest headaches for tech innovation right now has to be the economic downturn.  Not just because their own jobs may be in danger but also because buying new luxury items really isn't at the top of most people lists.  The gang at CES 2009 is soldiering on regardless, bringing all the newest toys, gadgets and tools to show off.  Many displays are toned down compared to last year; but there is still a wide variety to see.  Check out AnandTech's highlights here.

ASUS definitely isn't sitting on its hands with this whole "Eee" branding thing.  While we have in the past poked fun at the company's desire to put the Eee moniker on just about ANYTHING they could paint white, at CES yesterday ASUS showed off quite a few interesting new products in various stages of development.  The most exciting was probably the Eee Keyboard PC - a fully functioning computer in a stylized keyboard that has an iPhone-sized touch pad on the right hand side where the number pad would usually be located.  The back of the unit has connections like Ethernet, DVI/V
