CES: Possible surprises from Sony tonight?

From the "1001 Noisy Cameras" (?) trade web site:

Some of the major companies have scheduled featured events at the CES 2014 trade show and they will be covered either with live-blogging or live-video at the various technology websites/blogs and by the company's themselves. It is unknown what type of coverage camera/photography will have in their presentations but if you want to get some remote trade show excitement, here is the schedule for Monday 1/6/14 - all times in the blog-post below are New York City time - Eastern time (ET).

+ starts 11am ET: LG
+ starts 1pm ET: Panasonic
+ starts 3pm ET: ASUS and Sharp
+ starts 4pm ET: Intel
+ starts 5pm ET: Samsung
+ starts 8pm ET: Valve
+ starts 8pm ET: Sony

On Tuesday 1/7/13, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai will deliver a keynote address starting at 11:30am ET.

Events will be covered at CNet at CES and The Verge and Engadget and many other places.

Seems they might want to say something with the big guy there.

The site seems to cover only trade-related subjects. The MFT fanboys will be upset by this:

The second wake-up call came from Craig Mod, in a post at The New Yorker entitled "Goodbye Cameras". Craig Mod, if the name sounds familiar, posted a lot about his experience using the Panasonic GF1 way back when it came out. For example, here is his "GF1 Field Test: 16 Days in the Himalayas" post. Fast forward to now, and he wrote, among many others things, in the The New Yorker post:

"After two and a half years, the GF1 was replaced by the slightly improved Panasonic GX1, which I brought on the six-day Kumano Kodo hike in October. During the trip, I alternated between shooting with it and an iPhone 5. After importing the results into Lightroom, Adobe’s photo-development software, it was difficult to distinguish the GX1’s photos from the iPhone 5’s."
