PodTech Weekly: Saddam’s Tech-xecution
SAN FRANCISCO, January 6, 2007 (PodTech News) — The 2007 Consumer Electronics Show begins tomorrow night with a keynote by Microsoft Founder and Chairman Bill Gates. Catherine Girardeau takes a look at the CES schedule to see what the next week — and the next year — might bring. While CES is expected to focus on entertainment — from games to movies and other media — Matt Kelly checks in with the world of movies and the Internet, revisiting Intel’s role with ClickStar (and actor Morgan Freeman), which aims to bring the user closer to the world of film.
(PodTech and Seagate will be running a “bloghaus” there, the better to provide complete coverage for the thousands of professionals and enthusiasts who can’t spend the week in Las Vegas.)
Also in the newscast this week, a closer look at the particular way that mobile, handheld media technology infiltrated an execution chamber, and what would have been one of the most private moments in the life of former Iraqi dictator and convicted criminal Saddam Hussein, and the Nintendo Wii’s more dangerous tendencies. Those stories, and a Stat of the Day.
It’s PodTech News.
