News for January 8th 2012

TestFreaks Data


It’s Sunday and my youngest got up at 8am and I have to ask why. I don’t like getting up early on Sundays. So I figured I’d post some news and I’ve got a lot of it for you. Just a tiny bit of CES stuff, but I’m sure we’ll see a lot more soon as it’s kicking into high gear now. For now though read the news and see what’s been happening.
