How Apple Changed CES Forever

How Apple Changed CES Forever

The world's largest tech show gets fully underway tomorrow, but the government shutdown has forced several federal government speakers to cancel.

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in earnest on Monday, and like every year before Apple won't be participating, instead preferring its own carefully planned media events.

Of course, workers have been setting up very impressive displays and booths that cover nearly 3 million square feet at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and 10 other locations. "As a result, some of our scheduled CES 2019 programming and speakers will change". The real point of the ad, however, is the web address under the text, a link to apple.com/privacy, which goes into detail about Apple's privacy and security features, including how data related to Face ID, Touch ID, Apple Pay, and users' health remain protected.

The big story this year is just how much tech companies are partnering with each other. "In a world where privacy is on everyone's mind, Apple is saying to the technology industry that it stands alone". Cook has said that private information "is being weaponized" against consumers with "military efficiency".

The hardware firm behind the sex toy is called Lora Dicarlo, and its founder Lora Haddock issued a strong rebuke of CES and its leadership on Tuesday regarding their decision to take back the awarding of the honor, pointing to it as evidence of the ongoing issue of gender-bias in tech. Amazon and Google are expected to be in attendance.
