Although Apple and Google officially sit out the biggest tech trade show of the year, their platforms are well represented by the third parties that create thousands of products for them. This year it feels like Microsoft is simply being left out.
Windows has virtually no presence in the two biggest things to hit computing in a long time, and it’s starting to show. Microsoft may not be in trouble – but Windows is.
Oh please, lets cut out the melodrama. Engadget tells a different story:
In short, Microsoft LEFT CES a year ago and has a major developer conference in April, and yet, its OEMs are still around CES with their refreshed line ups for 2014.
If we’re judging success by presence at CES though, look no further than the 3D TV mania last year, a lot of good that did for them.
