January's an exciting time for the consumer electronics industry. Just as CEDIA
brings out the best from high-end gear, CES is time for the entire industry to shine. It's a time for feature debuts, a look at future technology and best of all, new product announcements.
The Consumer Electronics Association held its hall of fame inductions earlier last week to honor those who have made a difference in the field. Among them are Joe and Rachelle Friedman who created J&R Music and Computer World, David and Eugene Mondry who built Highland Superstores into the success that it is today and Al Sotoloff, one of the first big-box CE dealers.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is at long last opening its doors to those who work outside of the consumer electronics industry. No matter what your occupation or interest, you'll be able to join the CEA as a Consumer Technology Enthusiast, or CTE.
