My word what a week -- but it's almost over. Friday is here, which means it's time for Ben and Terrence to excavate this weeks biggest and most interesting stories from the smoldering pile of rubble called the internet.

Sure, there's a certain amount of creeping dread in the lead up to CES each year. It's a sleep-deprived week spent elbowing our way through the packed halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
