The conversation at CES centered on connectivity. It was widely accepted that in the "not so distant future" we will be connected to multiple devices, gadgets and home goods 24/7. Is connectivity by choice or is it simply inevitable? Even now connected devices are drilling down into people's homes and minds -- some, like IBM's Watson, can sense how people feel in real time. Increasingly, devices want to understand people and "help them to live better." The rationale is that as long as products are not cumbersome and are as good (if not better) than the existing goods, they will organically become a vital part of our lives.
