Live from CES 2010: Optimism!

January 7, 2010

by Amy Yen, Marketing Specialist, Business Wire

Optimism was the word at Wednesday night’s pre-opening keynote at the 2010 International CES, where Business Wire was on-site. As Keynote speaker and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer put it, even with the economic difficulties in 2009, the consumer electronics industry stayed focused and innovative and still managed to make an impact on people. Both Ballmer and CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro showed optimism about the new year, with Ballmer echoing Berkshire Hathaway and Business Wire boss Warren Buffett’s recent remarks on feeling “bullish” about the future.

Ballmer’s presentation emphasized the idea of “delivering the experiences that people want, whenever they want them, wherever they are.” We certainly agree; our business is getting information to the people to whom it is most relevant, wherever they happen to be. That’s why we’ve added mobile to our distribution network, so our members’ full-text releases can be viewed easily on any mobile device.

Another theme becoming prevalent is user input in product development or user-developed products. Obviously, user-created mobile applications have gone mainstream and crowdsourcing initiatives like MyStarbucksIdea and Dell Ideastorm have successfully involved consumers in product development for major brands. Ballmer noted that Windows 7 was beta-tested by eight million Microsoft customers.

What other major themes do you see coming out of the 2010 CES?

If you missed Steve Ballmer’s keynote last night, you can catch the full video on the Microsoft website or read cNet’s detailed live-blog.
