At CES 2013 Wednesday the Samsung Chief and Bill Clinton event begins at the Venetian at 9 a.m. Pacific. Check it out below.
This is speculation, but could a sexy Clinton appearance supporting Android-based Samsung tech be payback for the huge democratic support Google has provided the Obama campaign. Remember, Google chief Eric Schmidt was offered and turned down the post of treasury secretary recently … and just moments ago, Schmidt was out calling for an open Internet in North Korea? There’s more than one way to define “open” and both definitions are in Android’s — read Google AND Samsung’s — interests.
Or could Clinton be there to support Google, by way of Samsung, in its efforts to stop such patent assertion firms — patent trolls like Intellectual Ventures — via the FTC-DOJ investigation of patent trolls reportedly in the works? Then again, perhaps it is something entirely out of the ballpark, something to do with Clinton’s foundation, maybe. Or an opportunity to play sax for a bunch of geeks? We’ll know shortly.
