Breaking news out of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — the public is embracing technology! The BBC has the scoop:
More people than ever are becoming early adopters of technology, says research outlined in Las Vegas.
"Consumers get it; they understand technology and they are adopting it accordingly," analyst Sean Wargo told the Consumer Electronics Show.
More than $155bn (�80bn) in consumer technologies is expected to be sold in the US in the next 12 months.
"Driving the industry is the transition to the new breed, the next generation of technologies," Mr Wargo said.
More than 140,000 people are in Las Vegas for one of the world’s largest technology shows.
The industry says consumers’ love affair with gadgets will continue despite a global economic slowdown and a prediction that growth in the US market would halve in 2007 from last year’s figures.
Okay, enough sarcasm for today.
