Will your next TV be wire-free? To judge from the sets on display at this year's CES, models that wirelessly pull in programs using the Wi-Fi standard are the next hot thing in TV tech. Most of the Wi-Fi-enabled sets here, including models from Sony, Sharp, and Philips, are LCD TVs in the 12- to 23-inch size range.

In 28 years of attending the International Consumer Electronics Show, I never witnessed the tide of humanity that swept into the opening day of this year's CES. Usually the crowds swell on the second and third days of the show, but this opening day rivaled the most crowded days of yore, and then some.

The insanity begins at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Thursday, January 8, Day 1 of the International Consumer Electronics Show, when the doors open to the public - tens of thousands of dealers, installers, and just plain folks eager to see, hear, and get their hands on the latest high-tech wonders.

The kitchen used to be considered mom's domain. But it's now the central gathering point in most homes. During parties, people congregate sipping cocktails and chatting while waiting for the food to cook. Mail is read and checks are written at the kitchen table. Messages are transmitted via refrigerator magnet.

The play, which unfolded in roughly 8 seconds, had no bearing on the outcome of the game.

Photos by Tony Cordoza In the not too distant future, most TVs will be flat. Svelte, inches-thin LCD and plasma displays just make more sense than bulky tubes, especially in kitchens, bedrooms, and other smaller spaces.

Photos by Eleni Mylonas No editor could ask for a better contributor (or a better friend) than Julian Hirsch. He was an unquestionably honest man, a scientist who welcomed innovation, an enthusiast who clearly enjoyed what he was doing, an astute critic, and a fine writer who could address complicated technical subjects in plain, straightforward English.
