5G at CES 2020: Here’s what you can expect to see at this year’s show
CES 2019

5G will no doubt loom large at CES 2020. We're now at the point where the technology has real-world applications, and the nation's carriers are building out their 5G networks as we speak. While the main 5G show won't happen for another few weeks until Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, a fair amount of 5G devices and technologies will make their debut in Vegas this week.

To help guide you on what to expect, we've come up with a few central themes that we think you should keep your eyes out for during the show. While there might be some surprise revolutionary announcements, a good deal of what we'll see will be evolutionary and build upon the work of component manufacturers and carriers to prepare for 5G's long-awaited, broader 2020 rollout.

CNN further reported that an FBI spokesperson would not comment on details in the report, but noted that "in furtherance of public-private partnerships, the FBI routinely advises private industry of various cyber threat indicators observed during the course of our investigations."

waymo takes its self driving cars to florida for testing in heavy rain

If we’re ever to see fully autonomous cars tootling along our streets, they’re going to have to be able to handle extreme weather conditions such as rain, snow, and fog.

Much of the testing on public roads today is happening in places like Arizona. The mostly bright and dry weather there allows autonomous-car companies to focus on honing the core technology that powers their vehicles, but the next stage is to advance that technology so the vehicles can deal competently and safely with inclement weather.
