CES: One of the Best and One of the Scariest Demos Both in the Microsoft Booth

This is a giant touch screen - I would say 8x10 FEET. Each of the little boxes represents a space on the internet. When you tap it a little screen with the relevant info comes up. Waaaaay cool.

The next display, on the other hand, made me cringe. My first thought of was that if Microsoft gets into a car the "Blue Screen of Death" would become literal phrase rather than a metaphore.

My second thought was that the trade show manager should have thought of a better sign than a big blue screen - of death.

There are a lots of analyses of CES out there, but this year it's all about one thing: 3DTV.
