One of the companies I like keeping an eye on at any given major conference is ASUS.

"3D" has been a big one in recent years, as has been "cloud", "ultrabooks", "superphones' and so on. This year, a major buzzword is one that really caught fire throughout 2012: "4K". We're of course talking about... Read more...
