Samsung Continues Its Leadership In Innovations For The Home — CES 2017 Update

One of the hottest “must-see” events at CES every year is the Samsung press conference.  Dozens of media people get turned away every year as the seating capacity is limited. Thanks to a strong relationship with Samsung, we were able to gain early access and secured a prime viewing location.

samsung-tim-baxterTim Baxter, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics America, opened the show with an apology for the failings of the Galaxy Note7 (overheating issues), promising to reveal the root cause once they have concluded their analysis and confirmation of it.  He then quickly moved on to discuss the successes of the past year, as well as plans for this year and beyond.
