-- -- Here at the financial exchange now with working phones -- a lot of filling in for Barry Armstrong along side. Unite and joining us on our now functional phone is rich -- aloft Steve from Bloomberg and Rick how are you this morning. Great. So -- let's talk a little bit about some of the biggest trends that you're seeing at CES this year what's getting the most buzz on the -- at this point. I think this do the show this year is largely about television's. In particular television that are getting larger getting better and ultimately having spectacularly better picture quality. The big buzz has been around what are called the U. HDTVs. Of ultra high definition. And these are set but come in big sizes starting at about eighty or interest. And that have. The number of pixels the world our pick of the picture. I have worked on consistent and he has on that and garden variety HTV you might have been out. So certainly -- a lot more clear picture is the big thing that they're pushing their right now. Yeah it is it is that this is something that spill. You know will start received more than such show up later in the year. But basically -- ever since HDTV was adopted. You know at the back and chemistry years ago. The manufactured and look at what the next big thing was that would make you try whatever your current so was -- by a new one. They thought that was could be EDT the but that didn't work out well and that -- will be huge amount. Aaron very few people -- that life must have indeed. But when you see these ultra HD picture. You know you if you look at commander spoke totally -- competitor entered but probably -- You know I think our hope is that people -- -- -- -- -- start a government parties. That they will of the people will begin to -- you know. I really want my next you need to have this. The super high definition format. And in terms of a lot of the technologies that are being. Shown at this event this year. How long does it typically take for these to get into people's homes is at six months a year two years -- some of them just never make it anywhere with with these new technologies. It's a great question am you know my favorite line about technology -- he never mistake here you are short just. And around and that's a lot of -- -- about you could clearly see these things that are in the future and are coming in London will be home. But I I was trying I was talking with a couple mighty -- old tech writers last night. We're trying to remember when we first saw -- -- easy. And we all decided that it was probably in the late 1980s that there is exhibit good. And it took relief from the 1980s and so. You know October 2000 before that technology really propagated. You're already seeing some of these ultra HDTVs. On the market cooker at incredible prices and only -- one. And 84 and 125000. Dollars. So you're about 25000 dollar -- own pocket you can have. Most folks I'll -- Yeah but but there are other issues as well example where the content and content on the set. One of their features and traditional -- content will look better on Oprah HTTP. But really it doesn't become. You know something a must have uncovered a lot of content being created natively for the new -- so happy that takes time. So it's almost a chicken and egg scenario there where no one wants to make -- -- at that resolution because the TV's aren't out there but the TVs are getting bought necessarily because the content is now there. -- -- -- and that's that's exactly right I'm the fact that there is is going to be out quickly that cost them. And we'll see these senate this year well we will see them have at pretty high crisis not as bad as someone put. But the real question is how quickly -- -- well. So in terms of anything that might unexpected at this year's show may be a unique product that a company has come out with that they're displaying. That wasn't expected wasn't in the mainstream consciousness before this are you seeing anything unique that's been really surprising at this show. Well one of the friends about this show has been this is that your weapons of sensors and wearable technology are really -- that are around you almost can't turnaround. Without -- somebody who's selling a new fitness damper new -- watched it will display -- -- Serb recurrent. But -- of the Belle of the ball as the worm in the center based devices would probably typical happy war. Which at the name implies is an electronic war. And what what it does is that it measures how quickly your eating. I'm -- -- buses and vibrate Adidas slow down entry to quickly. And it stores paid about. How much are eating how many -- -- how fast. That you can -- speak with your computer. And be able to sort of analyze and hopefully get control period. That Susan's little company here a couple of friends and leaders there and put together. Am and they have a little party presence. I think everybody kind of problem with that weren't any electronic for my question is what happened what goes through it before but. About that -- That's something that I hope they have figured out before you shell out a hundred bucks for one of these things. And also apple is always notoriously missing from the show they always go off. And do their own thing -- have any upcoming announcements on and maybe some upcoming products that people are excited about over the next three to six months. Well obviously Adobe's you know -- new generation of the existing devices. But going back to what we're discussing a little bit earlier -- from the people are puzzling about all the rumors which apple does not armed. And they are working on TV. And you know we don't know what the display technology that might be. But the key thing in terms of apple is a software as a good TV that. Sort of changes the traditional paradigm from which channels -- -- -- our content out. And -- you some sort of new way of watching TV that the rumors are they're trying to do deals a lot of content providers and do something really new and different. That sort of hangs over -- being part he now there's the -- 64 million or in some cases billion dollar question -- What will apple do. All right well rich I appreciate it coming all of us this morning and certainly want to occupy an -- for some of these technologies making their way into homes over the next couple years. All right that was -- the -- off ski from Bloomberg and June well you know I was just thinking that. What is -- called the happy happy for happy -- -- vibrates. I don't think that's gonna keep me. From eating something inherently like to quickly because it sounds like unhappy for me had actually aired. Look at the pictures on -- to it looks like a pork that like those -- we use the FA OL looks like a kid and you gotta wash yourself. If you really wanted to stop you for meeting you attach it to an electronic -- I'll ask the thing and you shock yourself every time and that might. Get used to copy some read you like right. They got to make that thing durable that was obvious -- that thing off and I and I get hungry I get hungry I'll tell you what. Coming up we are going to finish up by wrapping up some part text messages text us at 6868. Let us know if you have any unique items you plan on leaving to your kids that's next right here on the financial exchange.
