In the first days of January, the Tech sector staged in Las Vegas, a gigantic Show. They celebrated in the desert city of those accomplishments, with which she wants to make in the new year for a conversation piece – and, of course, sales. The CES is the world's largest exhibition for home and entertainment electronics.
More than 4,500 exhibitors are expected would be this year, and a minimum of 180'000 participants, the organizers. That would be a slight growth to 2018. The chief of the online magazine "The Verge" has noted, however, 2019 is the "emptiest, deadest CES" that he had ever visited, without snakes booths before the exhibition, and without a traffic jam in Vegas.
This is by far the emptiest, deadest CES I've ever been to. No lines for events, barely even any traffic in Vegas. It's eerie.— nilay patel (@reckless) 7. January 2019
At the fair first, technologies that have a broad foot and on growth rate. Secondly, those of which the manufacturer wishes, they would make the leap from the niche. The digital assistant in the first category: they were last year, omnipresent, and have also this year a large appearance. They are available as networked speakers, and integrated in a colourful range of household products, and even the fridge and the washing machine.
100 million installed wizard
For almost three years Alexa of Amazon and the wizard will Google fight for supremacy in the controlled devices of the language. Google has expanded its presence over the last year. Because it's a lot of money and a lot of data: Who controls the wizard, occupied a key place in the networked home. As "Forbes" notes, are these devices to the smartphone to the next major supplier for marketable user information.
This smart, voice-controllable devices recorded a sturdy growth. Business consultant Deloitte has calculated that these days is to be exceeded the limit of 100 million installed devices. On the one hand, the digital assistant will establish, on the other hand, new Language areas will be developed. So far, they are widely used in English-speaking areas. This year, Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian, and Japan should come. In Switzerland, there are the products yet still only unofficially as a grey import.
Foldable mobile phones
among the hopefuls, the (for some time around offered) foldable screens and devices this year. Samsung has announced last year a Smartphone with a flexible Display. The phone, which is traded under the name of Galaxy F, comes at the earliest in March for presumed against 2000 francs in the trade, and it is possibly shown at the CES in back rooms.
other manufacturers Also show such devices, for example, the Chinese manufacturer Royole be FlexPai. The Tech-experts are divided on what to think of flexible Displays, Some think it's possible that you care for real innovations, like a few years ago the Convertibles. The surface book Microsoft or the Yoga series from Lenovo, the Laptop into a Tablet to turn, which corresponds to a real need. Just as it is conceivable that the devices turn out to be useful as a feasibility studies without real-life.
the Internet connection at home Is superfluous?
A big appearance the new mobile technology 5G. You will bring more pace and could make for some of the users own Internet connection at home is superfluous. In this country the middle will be taken in 2019, the first 5G networks in operation, however, until the technology is established on a broad Basis, it will take. The Hype seems to be plenty of premature: "At the CES, everything gets Bluetooth, or 5G," the trade magazine "c't", "from the kettle, through the toothbrush to the urine test".
In the case of the TV there are a parade of 8k units, although the demand in narrow limits. The super-fine resolution with 16 times more pixels than conventional HD television is only on very large screens at all recognizable, and so far, there is almost no content in this quality. Nevertheless, the manufacturers want to prove that you are ready: Samsung reveals a device with quantum dots. To expand the color spectrum.
For a small Coup Apple and Samsung have made. The two companies are in the Smartphone-area rival, but the TV they are working together now. The Koreans have announced at CES that its smart TV's that were re-equipped with the iTunes App. Which allows, when Apple purchased movies and TV shows. Via Airplay 2 photos and Videos transferred from iPhone and iPad to the big screen. Samsung TV models by 2018 can be upgraded via Update. The Californian manufacturer Vizio, Sony and LG to integrate Airplay 2.
Apple wants wide success
This Opening amazed: Apple is not known to grant other companies access to the own data universe. Anyone who wants to participate, they needed to date the right Apple Hardware . That was a recipe for success: Apple's customers are loyal, and the cloud services can keep a exclusive Status. But now, Apple wants to spread some of its services on their own Hardware-buying public. A Apple Music: The music streaming service has been running since December 2018 on the Echo-speakers from Amazon. A bit longer usable it is on Android phones, for 2015, a App.
The Opening, with the Apple decorates its own set top box AppleTV competing with one another, is likely to be related to the Streaming plans of the group. Apple is working on a Netflix-like service for movies and TV shows. Officially it is not announced.
But the company has already trial balloons: The Reality-TV series "Planet of the Apps" was produced by mid-2017 to 2018 and have been widely used on Apple's Music. In addition, Apple announced in June of last year, a multi-year partnership with the U.S. Talk show icon Oprah Winfrey for a "Line-up, with Original content from Apple". And Apple Manager Eddy Cue has hired a series of professionals, who have previously been developed for Sony Pictures series.
no Sex, no swearing
So little so far about the service-and-white, one thing is clear: Apple will not produce series such as "Game of Thrones", in which Sex and violence reign. On The Contrary. It is rumored that Apple CEO Tim Cook had personally intervened in the case of the Comedy Show "Carpool Karaoke".
At his request, curses, and below the belt line based jokes out had to be cut. Bloomberg predicts that Apple invests its billions in family-friendly comedies and emotional dramas emphasized.
Apple's streaming service could launch in the spring of 2019. If so, should be allowed to enjoy the spectators: It means that still more money flows into high-quality productions, with which our favor is advertised.
