Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg Contributing Editor David Kirkpatrick talks with Tom Keene about the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in today’s “This Matters Now” on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

And for that i wish i could start up?

The interesting thing is, ces started as a pc event and the home electronics.

It has broadened dramatically.

It is not getting any less important.

If anything, it is probably getting more important, although people are moving out of the central halls and trying to take it vantage of the gathering without paying money to the organizers.

How important are the products -- they are talking about samsung bringing out the new galaxy.

It is important.

We think of the world as being a software-centric world, but more and more creative devices are being -- are emerging to take advantage of the cloud of the software possibilities.

The keynote speaker -- what does she want out of ces and what does she want out of the industry to jumpstart yahoo!. i think yahoo!

Is continuing to try to get its feet, but i think she has done a pretty good job.

She wants more respect.

She has gotten a lot more respect than the company had before she arrived.

I think also yahoo!, everybody wants to find a way to tap into these new devices like my fit bit that i am wearing.

Everyone wants to find the nexus between software and hardware.

Is the sxsw crew different?

Ces was populated by people selling and buying.

Vendors, distributors, etc.. sxsw is more the geek fest.

That is like coders and younger crazy technology freaks.
