To help you along, we pulled together a few of the best posts we saw on the web last month. We hope this quick summary will give you some great inspiration, and maybe even help you uncover someone new to follow!
CES Round-up by Event Industry News
If you didn't make it to the Consumer Electronics Show in January, don't fear! Event Industry News did a great overview of all the tech trends you shouldn't miss. Sounds like Artificial Intelligence was a big one - we agree. In fact, we talked about that as an evolving trend on a webinar with BizBash last month. You can catch the recording here.
Interesting note: Apple made a surprise appearance with a billboard that read: "What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone". A smart nod to the slogan for Vegas, where CES took place. I wonder if they have some regrets given the news last week about the bug in FaceTime affecting privacy?
