This week could be summed up in three words–or one three-letter acronym. Yep, just in case you hadn’t noticed, this week was all about
CES. You can read CNET’s every last word, as well as see our every last picture and video on the subject, at our CES 2011 hub here. Below, we’ve called out a few of the bigger and wackier highlights:

? Verizon got hit by an HTC Thunderbolt (and nine other first-wave 4G LTE devices).

? Ford electrified with its new Focus.

? Motorola Xoom-ed onto the
tablet scene.

? IoSafe’s Rugged Portable drive took a bullet (or 20).

? Samsung offered its funky spin on a Windows ultraportable.

? Thumbs-up for the Genius Ring Mouse.

? Sony saw the world through 3D-colored glasses.

? For Lady Gaga, it was more about Polaroid.

? Pleo the dinobot: not extinct, after all.

? Vader invaded Vegas.

Now please excuse us while we drag our CES-addled bodies out for a robomassage.
