It’s nice to know that the world will be able to read and watch CES coverage from an African-American perspective. Besides, the gadgets come and go. Next year, 4K LCD monitors may be obsolete, but the personal connections will exist for years to come. Here are just a few of the most interesting people that crossed my path on the first day of CES 2013.—Marcia Wade Talbert
