Editor-in-chief, Fraser Macdonald, said, “This is a tremendously exciting partnership for Stuff. We always send a contingent to Las Vegas for CES as it's the first opportunity to get our hands on the year's biggest gadgets, and to gauge what the following years will bring.“
Macdonald added, “From its world-leading position, Stuff is ideally placed to partner with CEA. Our experts will pick real winners: the 2011 CES Hot Stuff awards will only feature new products that all gadget fans will love, and that most gadget fans will buy.”
