Pritzker, who was named to her position in June 2013, discussed how the Commerce Department is attempting to create a better environment overseas so American companies can compete. This includes having teams overseas that can help U.S. corporations deal with the local government.

CES 2014 Las Vegas - Cisco CEO John Chambers’ Tuesday afternoon International CES keynote bore a greater resemblance to a religious revival meeting than a tech conference as he forcefully argued for the world to embrace the “Internet of Things” (IoT).

At the start of the address, Chambers immediately walked off the stage and conducted his impassioned pitch while walking among the crowd.

“2014 will be the transformational pivot point for the Internet of Things,” he said.

2014 CES Las Vegas - T-Mobile's entertaining and often foul-mouthed CEO John Legere poked another finger in the eye of its cellular carrier rivals by announcing it will pay consumers' early termination fee (ETF) for up to $350 per line and an instant credit of up to $300 per trade-in device for up to five lines.

"This is not a promotion," Legere insisted, after reveling in his physical ejection from the AT&T event the night before. "This is forever. This is the end of contracts."
