January 14, 2010 State of the Art Want It or Not, TV Goes 3-D By DAVID POGUE At the end of each season of The Amazing Race, the host always says something like: Five continents, 14 countries, 21 days, 25,000 miles. You are the official winners of The Amazing Race! At the end of each year s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, he really ought to be there at the airport to greet you: Five days, 2,500 exhibitors, 2 million feet of floor space, 110,000 journalists and industry reps.
