Netflix is everywhere this year at CES as the company moves to expand its streaming service. Netflix has already partnered with a handful of Blu-ray manfacturers, including Panasonic, Sanyo, Toshiba and Sharp. The goal is to make the company’s ever expanding streaming service available on all new TVs and Blu-ray players so that users can have direct access to a library of films.

The tablet craze continues at CES as HP introduced its new slate computer. While Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer unveiled the prototype device, HP is expected to also come out with a tablet powered by Google’s Android. The move comes as the tablet market becomes increasingly saturated, however, it gives users the more purchasing options.

Intel’s hopes its new WiDi technology will bridge the gap between the television and the computer. The WiDI processor will wirelessly transmit media from the computer to an HDTV connected to the device. Available exclusively at Best Buy, the WiDI will hit stores January 17th.
