Tech News Highpoint For The Week – The All Things D Conference

The highpoint this week in tech news has been all the news coming out of the Wall Street Journal All Things D Conference – the conference focuses on technology and is held annual – this is their 11th year — and All Things D staff have interviewed a number of prominent tech industry people like Apple CEO Tim Cook, Roku CEO Anthony Wood and others. The conference ran from May 28 through May 30 and boy did they demo and discuss quite a few cool upcoming and/or evolving tablets.

And I can’t possible talk about all of them in a short blog posting so here are some related links!
