Computex kicks off next week in Taipei. Here’s why it’s a better show for everyone than the International Consumer Electronics Show.
Some publicity stunts are just bound to work better than others, regardless of costs and their stars’ hip factor, so if you put some thought into it, a buzz-building maneuver involving a vintage car, vintage guitar and… vintage movie celebrity can still make quite the impact in 2014.
Samsung might have had a slew of high-end Android tablets, curved HD TVs and a mumbling Michael Bay to show off at CES 2014, Intel flaunted a sleek wearable-sized PC and innovative dual OS platform, but the much lower-profile Neptune Pine could ultimately steal everyone’s Vegas thunder.

The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has started early for Samsung, as it did for LG, ZTE and Acer, with the Galaxy Camera 2 precociously unveiled and at least one piece of wearable technology subtly teased on the company’s “Tomorrow” blog.
