Your wallet and this for me at least this is one of the most exciting weeks of the year it is. I'm personally always very excited to see. What kind of new technology is going to be out there are so you know looking out what's going on at the big Consumer Electronics Show CES. What are some of the biggest trends that you're seeing this year. Well that they. Yes it was a little bit about -- there's a lot of vehicles. 48 TDs at higher resolution TVs so it a lot of -- Much talk about media anymore -- about just getting sharper in sharp pictures some of the -- quite sold out yet but that's what. Stony trotted. All the majors at these new Forte keep large of course there and urged eighties. And apart from that and to be -- a lot of you Smart device is devices that connect to the Internet obviously. And also there's and -- -- with as new and that seat near field communications. Where does this at some galaxy -- -- -- -- where -- can captive for instance careless speakers all these palm products now. He couldn't wirelessly stream your audio and just -- the speaker with this NSC. Featured choose to do that. So a minute think that. You know seeing a huge number of you know really important big -- -- -- just a lot of little stuff here. So it's difficult to cover. So it seems like it's a lot of refinement of existing products and building in new features as opposed to. Completely revolutionary new devices that we've seen in previous years. Well I would say it's been like at every year there's there's actually. Much more evolution than revolution these traits. The one part that was attention it was instituted it was -- -- Gaming device from in India. Which. Makes the chips are a lot recently Smartphones and other and graphics cards for computers. That accompanied me it was it was any game controller. A little screen but yeah idealistic view would be played. Android gains and even -- games a new TV over wireless. A lot of people problem with these Smartphones. To play games with a touch screen. And it's it's hard in some awards and games with a touch screens because there was this game controller in your instant it would play. -- -- games on TV. So in terms then of a lot of these new technologies that are being displayed at this show this week. How long does it typically take for something to get from the showroom floor there. Into consumers hands in their living rooms is it a six month process is a year two years to some of these not even make it into consumers' hands. Yeah I mean that -- what they had done -- Nicole politely ECD's. And LG this new TV technology LG. Most you can keep you know in 2012. Outlook 2013. But you'll see some -- dish. Introduced its new. -- with letting DDR yesterday. And they hoped to get and consumers and next. Bumpers so that was pretty cool product. Then you know so it is there is you'll see some some -- will never come on eBay aware and then you know a lot of -- stuff. Is actually -- become the next few months or within the next six months. And have you seen anything unexpected that maybe folks weren't expecting to see at this year's show. That has kind of surprised people at this point. Not really knew there was as a there was that. In Indian gaming -- any any sort of new gaming devices tend to get a lot of attention. But apart from that -- -- paying you know two to -- of course that this show is opening today Seoul's city. If this thing being emerges but a lot of time to. It's these little small a lot of on the accessories for. The iPhone. Year and a lot of it goes speakers that our speakers. So we'll see if there's anything I -- will be some little thing that -- -- there's also this trend towards. -- back. These these activity. Trackers like a bit. On the putting out new burst and of those in the as a beat Butler people trashing their orders and just walking around there they're exercise activities. So wearable track every you're sort of the trend but it is -- bigger trend this year. And and one thing that we always notice about this event is that. Apple is always missing from a they always go off on their own they're always holding their own press conference is their own events so you know given that they're not presenting anything. At this event this week what do they have planned for this year what types of things do you think they're going to be showing off. As we go through the year. You know there's. There's been -- apple apple -- real keys from apple -- apple knows removed -- at some sort of watch. You know and then obviously waiting for the next iPad to a lot of people and I what people are wondering is whether apple which. Traditionally. Released products were on view they will. -- and I'm -- Ready. And so it will become a Wednesday. IPhone -- iPad in the next few months and then in the fall that. Whether apple has with with other companies like Samsung be more impressed with its new products. -- at least. All right well David I appreciate you coming in and fill us in on some of the info coming out of CES. And certainly left people look out for some of these devices as we go forward.
