Has the world's largest gadget expo lost its mojo?

GoodGearGuide: "The International Consumer Electronics Show takes place next week in Las Vegas, and as always there will be plenty to trigger our technolust. Teaser press releases from exhibitors augur a new suite of super-thin laptops and mid-range tablets, plus Internet-connected cars and TVs, as well as the latest developments in charging and connecting devices without wires.

But having absorbed the conference's record 20,000 new product debuts, provided courtesy of 3100 companies who demoed across a record-breaking 1.861 million net square feet of exhibition space, we're still left with more questions than answers. Chief among them: With launches in key categories like smartphones and tablet PCs largely taking a backseat to thinner connected TVs and expanding cloud multimedia services, does the show still remain relevant for entrepreneurs and small business owners?
