Dear CNET members,
With the New Year in full swing, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas just ended last week, showing off some exciting technology to come this year. If you--like myself--were unable to attend the show, no worries; CNET editors and staff have our backs with complete coverage of CES 2006. After checking out the coverage on so many new products, what got me all excited wasn't Panasonic's 1080p 65-inch plasma TV (my wallet said no) but something simple: Belkin's CableFree USB hub! It's definitely earned its place on my Want It list, and I can't wait to pick up one of these babies up so that I can get rid of those long USB wires to my two printers and scanners. Whether you were lucky enough to go or missed the opportunity to attend this year's CES, check out CNET's CES coverage and tell us what you think was the coolest thing at CES 2006. Who knows--maybe your pick of the coolest thing will be the talk of the world for the rest of year! I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to say.
This week's hot topic:
Coolest item from CES 2006
Every year, hundreds of electronics companies descend on the CES show in Las Vegas to reveal their hottest, newest products and technologies. While we've already handed out several Best of CES 2006 awards, we wanted to know what you thought was the coolest thing at CES 2006.

Creative Zen Vision:M gives the iPod a run for its money
--posted by Editor: Jasmine France
When I saw first the Creative Zen Vision:M (30GB) online in December, I thought it was a pretty sweet-looking piece of equipment. It's even better in person. Sure, it's quite a bit heftier than the Apple iPod--0.7 inch is thick compared with the iPod's scant 0.4-inch waist--but this extra girth actually makes the Zen...Read more

Samsung updates DLPs,
reinvents the wheel
--posted by Editor: David Katzmaier
DLP HDTV heavy hitter Samsung announced four new big-screen rear-projection units earlier today, and in terms of potential image-quality improvement, the coolest is the HL-S5679W. This 56-inch single-chip 1080p-resolution DLP uses an entirely new light engine that ditches the tried-and-true color wheel/lamp... Read more

Scientific-Atlanta's real TiVo killer
--posted by Editor: David Carnoy
The Scientific-Atlanta MCP-100 may not look all that sexy on the outside, but if you're a cable subscriber, this set-top box should give you reason to salivate. That's because the MCP-100 is an HD DVR that also has a built-in DVD burner. We heard about this one long before the show started, but... Read more
