    The biggest news that came out of a day of CES press conferences? LG executives pronounce their new ThinQ smart appliance line "thin-cue" instead of "think." We kid, we kid (sort of). The appliances themselves are noteworthy, in that they talk to one another more proactively than we've previously seen with other smart home appliances.

    Also of interest this early in the show: all the tech we've seen designed to assist the elderly and disabled. And, of course, in addition to all of the above, we've also seen our fair share of TVs: big, rollable and all very expensive, we're sure. As ever, some are more practical than others, and some aren't at all close to coming to market. Find all that and more in our quickie day-zero recap.
