Crave at CES: Phones, tablets, and Justin Timberlake dominate press day
Justin Timberlake’s CES moment
LAS VEGAS–Not even Justin Timberlake could bring the sexy back to MySpace.
The pop singer/actor was one of several celebrities who lent their star status to a number of companies on Monday, when at least 18 consumer electronics manufacturers unveiled their new products and services at CES 2012’s Press Day.
In Timberlake’s case, he joined Panasonic onstage to pimp the new MySpace TV service, but we took it as a bad sign when the audience started laughing at the mere mention of MySpace.
Though you wouldn’t know it by the press conference, Panasonic had some great announcements, including what could possibly be the best TV value on the market and a new flagship model. However, it is facing some facing some stiff competition from LG’s 55-inch OLED TV. Seriously, this TV makes me drool.
