Entrepreneurship
Startups are forgoing exorbitant engineering salaries for the more reasonably priced but equal-quality work of an outsourced IT staff. Silicon Valley is largely considered the global leader in technology, with firms in the area competing for the highly-skilled developers and engineers located there.

So, here we are in the middle of what I call “CES season.” The massive Consumer Electronics Show is the first big Las Vegas convention of the year, and the place where all the big brands unveil their new products or services (or their tweaks to the same old products/services).
