CES Starts Up

NOON -- The Consumer Electronics Show convenes in Las Vegas this week, with a smaller gathering of attendees than in previous years. According to VentureBeat, CES is expecting only about 110,000 to attend.

Regardless, many are expecting to see some big developments in the areas of 3DTV and green technology, as well as the introduction of Plastic Logic's new Que e-reader, mobile devices like netbooks, and various TV Everywhere solutions.

In other news:

  • Though Steve Jobs will not be present at this year's CES, The New York Times has reported that Apple has booked a stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco for Jan. 26 -- presumably to announce the introduction of its rumored tablet device.

  • Spotify has reached a compromise with music labels to launch its music service in the U.S., TechCrunch reports. "Spotify will be free for users, but a 'very limited' number of people will be able to use it," TechCrunch's Michael Arrington writes. Arrington also claims that Spotify has been in talks with Google to build its Android app into the 2.1 version of Android.
