Jason Hiner (ZDNet) compiles “the four biggest trends that will define this year’s International CES, for the professionals who pay attention to this stuff.”

  1. Wearables. “Make no mistake, other companies have been watching the [Google Glass] hype and they’ve decided that wearable technology is what’s next for the tech industry.”
  2. The Internet of Things. “In terms of the raw numbers of business use cases, the Internet of Things will make the biggest showing at CES 2014.”
  3. Contextual computing. “It collects uncomfortable amounts of data about you and then uses it in ways that are just useful enough to make you forget about the discomfort.”
  4. Consumerization of business tech. “It’s all about the bottom-up movement of workers selecting their own tools to become more efficient and productive rather than being stuck with the outdated tools handed out by their companies.”
