    Some 113,000 people attended the Consumer Electronics Show last week in Vegas.

     Last year, it was all about the tablet.

    This year, expect a bigger screen.

    The 2013 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show is expected to be just as crowded and crazy as last year, with products that, thanks to an improving economy, companies actually think they can sell.

    Starting with TVs.

    Sure, smartphones will still be everywhere, and we'll again see lots of tablets, but stepping away from the 3D dream, you'll likely see a new round of TV screens that come loaded with apps, including some you can talk to. We predict that will spur a new round of Apple TV set rumors, with Siri playing a big role in that speculation.

    Television will also start to look more like movies, with enhanced HD and ways for people to see a clear picture, no matter where they're sitting. Intel, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, and others will be leading the way here.

    We'll do our best to send you a clear picture.
