#CES and #NATPE kicked off the year with keen insights into ubiquitous connectivity and content. Awashed in fantastical visions, the theme of imaginative wonder, optimism and excitement permeated the events marking the awakening of a magical many-to-many era. Enter SyFy’s House of Imagination and Alcatel-Lucent’s LTE world – rich, frictionless space for magical personal experiences.  Car as platform, toaster […]


There were many laugh out loud moments today with Hugh Laurie and Judge Judy in the morning, and Chris Hartwick of Web Soup at the Digital Luminaries Awards, but no one could top Donald Trump who won over many fans when Andy Cohen of Bravo asked Jillian Michaels, Curtis Stone and Trump their thoughts on […]


Yesterday was action-packed all day long. From David Zaslav’s IMAX 3D visions and outlook on OWN, to the interesting details of how Fox’s Modern Family wound up on ABC, onto Shelly Palmer’s advice on loyalty, recency and bounce backs, then a tour of the floor. And that was just the morning. Michael Eisner gave a […]
