Next month I will be heading to Las Vegas once again to cover the Consumer Electronics Show. I've been going to CES (or Comdex when that existed) since 1988 and it's always a great way to see the latest gadgets from numerous vendors. But one firm is conspicuous in their absence. Macworld is always held around the same time, and that's where Apple holds court. So it's understandable that Apple puts all of its eggs in one basket... or maybe it's a basket of apples?
