NET Critical Conversations: Unearthing the Truly New and Exciting at a Virtual CES
For nearly 30 years, Scott Wilkinson has guided countless consumers’ technology purchases through in-depth research and testing of the most promising products being brought to market. With the recent announcement that CES is now going virtual for 2021 and with many of us working from home, we’ll need Scott’s help more than ever. HPA NET Critical Conversations host Mark Chiolis, along with some friends and collaborators, sit down with Scott to dig into how we will equip our homes, our cars, our toys and of course all of our key communications and media devices for the next few years.
