Who'll have the biggest CES news?

Kara Swisher is angling for seats at Jerry Yang’s keynote at CES in January. Just kidding, I’m sure she’ll get iin.

Last year the guy with the biggest news at CES wasn’t even AT CES. Heh. Steve Jobs is brilliant.

Unfortunately for him this year MacWorld and CES aren’t at the same time, so that means that CES’s keynotes will actually get discussed on blogs.

So, who’ll have the best keynote? Jerry Yang? Or General Motors’ CES keynoter, CEO Rick Wagener? I’m thinking General Motors might just be more interesting. Why? Did you know that BMW is charging $400 for a freaking iPod cable connector that cost them a dollar or two to make?

GM can totally change that for millions of its customers.

I want a car with a hard drive built in that gets music off of my home network while parked in my garage (which already has wifi).

Hope GM does it.

Oh, and if you’re going to CES, make sure you signup for and come to the Seagate/PodTech BlogHaus. It WILL sell out this year and those who signup on Upcoming.org will get first dibs on tickets. We’ll have lots of news of our own there.

  1. LOL @ GM. If GM can’t build a quality, reliable vehicle, I think it would be rocket science for them to design a proper in-car music networking system. Talk about core competencies in crisis. Frankly if I was running Cerberus, I’d push out Wagener if he was wasting his time with the car entertainment features.

  3. Yeah, I can totally see GM rocking everyone’s world at those show. I was at the CES Forum earlier this week, and they announced a new partnership with BMW, too. So it could be a very auto New Year at CES.
