Wearables are a key component of Intel’s vision of the connected
future. Throughout his address, Brian Krzanich, the new
CEO announced several
partnerships with creative industries like fashion, animation
and gaming. Together with Barneys, Opening Ceremony and the
Council of Fashion Designers of America, Intel is working to
promote wearable devices in fashion. Krzanich also announced
that its latest chip, Edison,
part of its Quark family of SoCs, will feature “a full Pentium
class PC in the form factor of an SD card.” This ultra-low
power, 22nm Dual Core SoC can be used to power wearable devices.
“We’re creating a network of devices, all smart, all coming
together, all powered by Edison,” he said.
"Because we're about the lifestyle,"
says. "What we have is an extension of expression ... We
keep that relationship with our people, our father's
fans." He adds, "My father has a movement that started
before us. As his children, we are just the
stewards to build on his foundation." This is the
House of Marley's 4th year at CES...they want to stay

The Futurecast Keynote featured panelists
John Donovan of AT&T, Qualcomm’s Paul Jacobs and Ericsson’s
HansVestberg who collectively discussed the power of mobile
in today’s world, and the future of wireless networks. All
three panelists stressed the importance of mobile as a
platform for creation. “When you give consumers the freedom
to use bandwidth, they’ll use it,” said Donovan, “the phone
is the remote control for your life.” Donovan said that AT&T
is becoming more of a software-oriented company focused on
users, and enabling content creation. Efficiency was also a
hot topic (both power and spectrum efficiency). “When we
think about the Internet of Everything, we want these
sensors to be very low power,” said Jacobs as he discussed
wireless charging, explaining that the Formula-E racing
circuit will use wireless charging, first for support cars,
then eventually for the electric Formula-E cars themselves.
Vestberg predicted that in the next three to four years,
small cells to help handle 4G traffic (both indoor and out)
will be prominent.

director, MESA/2nd Screen Society the group discussed
how adding a companion “little” screen experience to
programming can make the “big” connected screen even
bigger. Panelists reported having to work hard to find
the right formula to deliver additional content and
coordinate two screens...MULTIMEDIA...MULIT-EVERYING...

THE NEXT BIG THING
iOS 7 is getting better...Android's voce
command feature is also getting better. This is
important because while it may
be awkward right now, voice is a far
more natural manner for humans to
interact with computers for many form factors and uses cases
than type and touch...Important implication of Google Glass
is the introduction of a completely new computing platform
where the primary interface is voice. As wearable computers
become more common,
voice-based interaction will become
necessary given the lack of input options in small form
