It’s press day at CES 2013. It’s a marathon of press conferences held by some of the largest technology companies in the world. This is the chance to get products in front of the press for the first time, to drive up excitement for new gadgets and to get the scoop on all the competition. The first press event I attended today was held by LG and they set the tone early — everything was all about smart technology, connectivity and finding new ways to control your electronics (presumably so they don’t control you).

Late this afternoon I saw an announcement that Google might be preparing to launch a mobile payment service that uses near-field communications (NFC). Olga Kharif and Greg Bensinger wrote about it at Bloomberg Businessweek. The new system would use Google’s Android operating system and would require specially equipped phones to operate. Bensinger and Kharif said three sources said Google will begin service in five cities: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
