Six Megatrends in Consumer Electonics

Fish Fry - January 7, 2011

In my Fish Fry this week, I investigate the megatrends driving consumer electronic design today. Also, I reveal the winner of the Texas Instruments Wireless Watch Development Kit and I announce a brand new super cool nerdy giveaway.  To participate in the nerdy giveaway this week, write your Haiku poem in the comments box below.

Join me for this week’s news wrap-up with my spin on the high-tech news of the week…  

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.
