Devices Dominate

There was no shortage of devices on display throughout the halls of the Austin Convention Center, where attendees tapped on iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy S3s and Microsoft Windows Phones while they waited in line for panels or coffee. Hardware became a theme of this year's SXSW, with Memoto touting tiny cameras that clip to a shirt, Leap Motion demonstrating computers that respond to hand motions and MakerBot promoting its line of 3-D printers.
