CES is finally over. Here’s everything you missed

We expected CES this year to be about connecting everything from watches to toothbrushes to virtual worlds. We did see a lot of connected, crazy gadgetry and more: the FCC’s Tom Wheeler hinted at his net neutrality decision and even Twitter won an Emmy to wrap up a long, weird week in Sin City.

Here’s a complete list of our coverage, broken down by topic, so you can get caught up on all the new tech to start the year:
TV and cord cutters
Wearables
Internet of Things
Phones and tablets
Computers
Connected Cars
3D printers, VR and a dose of science

Acer’s shakeup runs deeper as president resigns, founder takes over

Earlier this month, Acer announced a hard reset: With unexpected, staggering losses in Q3, the company would move forward without CEO JT Wang. At the time, it was understood that Acer President Jim Wong would take over Wang’s responsibilities, but a report from Reuters says that Wong has stepped down, to be replaced by founder Stan Shih. Shih has also been elected the new chairman, and will likely oversee the company’s promised “Transformation Advisory Committee” in hopes to get back on track. The role of CEO has apparently gotten the axe as well — concentrating all the power to Shih for the company’s next moves.
