To say I'm typically not a fan of CES would be an understatement, but this year was very different. A combination of better logistics and fewer people at the show, coupled with some truly earth-shattering content, made CES a must-attend event this year. One of the things that jumped out at me is that IBM announced a compelling fix for the border wall controversy. It's a fix that actually could improve the U.S. government overall. In addition, I had an interesting chat that showcased the death of the tech market — but that's a good thing.
