With a spate of large-scale LA events, including The Grammy Awards and the Critics Choice Awards, being canceled or postponed, there was growing concern that Los Angeles might bow out of hosting the Super Bowl. But city officials have announced that the game will almost certainly go on as planned at SoFi Stadium on February 13. 


According to Variety, the “buzziest” product of CES 2022 was Samsung’s Freestyle, a portable projector screen and smart speaker in one that weighs in at a compact 1.8 pounds. Just as buzz-worthy was the fact that the annual show once again took place in person, after last year’s virtual gathering. The world’s largest consumer electronics show was smaller than usual, drawing some 40,000 attendees to Las Vegas, according to the Consumer Technology Association, the event’s organizer.
