Developer’s Description: The IEEE bills itself as the largest professional association for the advancement of technology.  Let’s just say it has a language all its own; and the hottest new concepts are based on wireless technologies.  The new IEEE Standards Wireless Dictionary iPhone app gives professional experts and students alike a chance to gain an in-depth understanding and appreciation for the breadth of coverage of IEEE wireless standards terms and definitions—not found in any other single source.

From 802 to token ring, the dictionary has nearly 3,000 terms and definitions with complete source citations.  You will be able to search for definitions by Standard Number or Alphabetically.  (Just don’t look up definitions while in your client’s office!)

Wireless technology, like many other technical fields, has its own set of jargon and acronyms. Many times, these acronyms are used simply to reduce the effort required to describe concepts.  The goal of this application, says its developers, is to provide meaning for the acronyms and jargon used in the wireless industry with a particular emphasis on commercial systems.

LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255


The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.


The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.


Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.


By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
