CES 2014 Scorecard: Who were the winners and losers?
The Fierce editorial team was at CES in full force. And now that we've recovered from the outrageously long cab lines, the packed show floor and the standing-room-only panels, we've had time to contemplate some of the major themes from CES and what they mean to the wireless industry. Some companies emerged stronger than ever. Likewise, others failed to make an impression. Here's a scorecard of the technologies and companies that we think emerged as winners and losers at last week's event.

LAS VEGAS--Wearable computers were seemingly everywhere at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, popping up in keynotes and at booths, in the form of watches, earbuds, bracelets bands and others.
