MPR's Midmorning aired a discussion about gadgets and tech gear:

The 2010 Consumer Electronics show starts today and features the latest gadgets and game-changing devices. There's buzz about ebook competitors, the rise of 3D technology for TV, and even more mobile computing options.

The 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show creates a bit of buzz because it often showcases breakthroughs as well as products on the horizon. How do the trends affect the market, and affect society? As Kerri Miller said it, how does this technology affect how we create, connect and co-exist?
