There’s that golden, warm, sweet glowing period that surrounds that first, wonderful, falling-in-love part of a relationship. The sun shines a little brighter, birds chirp a little sweeter, rainbows add a new color and even Fiona Apple is happy.

I don’t feel that a phone or another incarnation of the iPad or any other current “iDevice” will be truly be Apple’s next BIG thing. No. Instead I’d like to offer an alternative postulation for the next BIG product from the largest company in the world. One that I think they could reinvent, own the market for and use to expose an entirely new demographic to the Apple “it just works” culture.

Opened my e-mail in-box this morning – well, actually, I tapped “Mail” on my iPhone5 ‘cause that’s how I roll now, playa’! – and saw a message with the tantalizing subject line titled “FREE Driver for Control4.” Since they pretty much had me at “FREE” and then closed the deal with “Control4,” I boldly pressed on. Turns out it was a message from a company called PocketWare.

At CES and CEDIA this year, 3D seemed to be lost in the crowded world of hyping The Next Big Thing – aka 4K – and the other typical video hoopla announcements (Bigger! Brighter! Thinner! Contrast-ier!) At CEDIA, I believe I only saw one demo – Epson – exclusively touting 3D. Clearly, the three-pronged assault on the optic nerve seems to have largely blown over and today, 3D really seems like just another features * on the side of the box, next to 6 HDMI outputs, a retina-searing contrast rating, and Web streaming capabilities.
