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.

Executives are honored as well, including Panasonic's former president Richard Kraft, RCA's Frank McCann and Fredrik Philips, who saved the lives of 382 Jews during World War II when he told the Nazis that they were indispensible.

Dr. Lauren Christopher and her team were honored for their creation of the satellite system used by DirecTV, Larry Weber for his work in developing plasma displays and Dr. Ivan Getting and Dr. Bradford Parkinson for their work on GPS.
