What the #$*! Do We (K)now!?

I've always found it a little surprising that as soon as the holidays (and shopping days) are over, there are big electronics conferences. Examples of three that are already over are the Consumer Electronics Show, Mac (Apple) Expo, and the Adult Entertainment Expo 2007. What do we need to know? I've asked my new media students to check things out, and post them here as comments.
