The One Fact About CES That Will Astonish You

The International CES is the world's largest consumer electronics show, and a showcase each year for the biggest new things in consumer tech. This year, The Motley Fool's Rex Moore caught up with one of the world's leading tech columnists at the show, David Pogue of Yahoo Tech, to get a breakdown of the hottest new trends in electronics that could soon be hitting the market.

In this segment, Pogue discusses what he sees as the heart of CES, "nutty, ridiculous expensive experiments," 80% of which will debut here, and then never be seen again. He discusses why curved television screens, such as those exhibited this year by LG, Samsung and Sony (NYSE: SNE  ) , or massive 7-inch phones, or many of the other experimental new ideas at CES sometimes never gain traction, but why the process of bringing 10 things to market so that two of them might take hold is an important one.

The future of television?
You know cable's going away. But do you know how to profit? There's $2.2 trillion out there to be had. Currently, cable grabs a big piece of it. That won't last. And when cable falters, three companies are poised to benefit. Click here for their names. Hint: They're not Netflix, Google, and Apple.
