On Tuesday in San Francisco, Broadcom Corp. gave reporters a preview of its International CES. Trying to play off our love of gadgets, they called it a "geek peek."
Wirelessness was the prevalent theme. Location-based technologies and so-called 5G wireless (Broadcom's nicely confusing term for 802.11ac Wi-Fi) are going to be among the CES highlights for the chip maker. So is near-field communications, which Broadcom thinks is on the verge of big things. (See Broadcom Thinks NFC's Time Is Nearing.)
