This new year, why don't we attend a conference and learn something new.
International CES 2012 will be next week January 10-13. As someone I know puts it, "Innovation makes the impossible, possible!"
Note: I won't be there since I'm on the other side of the Earth. But, it's right to recommend good things to my readers.

I guess, TVs are not only for watching anymore.
