Mid-afternoon Vegas time on the first day of CES 2009, and the Google News index is up to 543 hits on "CES Printer" with page-one names that are very familiar to readers of this blog, including Polaroid, ZINK, and Memjet.
Notable news comes from the new-to-me site printercomparison.com, with "CES 2009: Memjet introduces new printhead" and the AP round-up piece "Even in recession, CES to have stuff worth seeing" where Memjet is referenced among the dozen or so show highlights. The former piece refers to Memjet's parent as "Silverback" rather than the correct Silverbrook Research. A simple typo, or a bit freudian?
I will be visiting and blogging from those companies' exhibits, as well as others, tomorrow, Friday January 9th, so stay tuned!
