We are actually preparing an update for this as I write this. Stay tuned.
Unfortunately I cannot go into “detail” but I can say that there is some really cool and amazing work going on. It will benefit both consumers and developers in some pretty major ways. But again, we are strictly held to not go into any more detail.
Let me put it this way. I’ve learned a lot in the last two years and the thing that has stuck with me is that projects in tech come and go. Few actually come to fruition and that is the sole reason why we (me) hold back now from sharing a ton of details.
When I give a “political” answer it is not to hide anything from you and it doens’t mean Samsung is tanking us but it doesn’t help to tell you about a really awesome thing have you get excited about it and then never have it come to life. Mostly because that happens ALL THE TIME. It just happens. More than it should, I think, but it’s just what happens.
As for CES we just have different priorities this year. Just because we aren’t making any huge announcements doesn’t mean we aren’t there making strides that will benefit everyone.
