Apple greets CES 2019 with snarky iPhone privacy billboard

Apple hilariously trolls competitors in new

And for the thousands of tech nerds at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, that means the intelligent toasters and AI vacuum cleaners are having to make room for the sex toys of the future.

The ad's placement takes on extra irony when you notice that Google's CES presence is even bigger than it was past year - the company once again wrapped the Las Vegas monorail with "Hey Google" ads and once again it is building a huge playhouse in the convention center parking lot.

CES is an exciting time for technology lovers, and the tradeshow has always seen a fairly diverse number of different types of tech out on the show floor. They only had presentations at Macworld.

While the ad does feature an image of the iPhone, it isn't specifically pushing the product, but instead Apple's stance on privacy. The startup's founder and CEO, Lora Haddock (pictured above), has also gone on a PR offensive.

In September 2018, Lora DiCarlo submitted a product called the Osé for CES's Innovation Award.

But as the staff at Lora DiCarlo started prepping for the event, Haddock got an email from the Consumer Technology Association, which organizes CES, rescinding the offer. A robotic massager created to give women killer orgasms without involving men doesn't exactly fit, as CTA said, in that category.

Manafort Allegedly Shared Polling Data With Russian Operative
While the redactions don't specifically mention the Trump campaign by name, they do mention the "2016 presidential campaign". Kilimnik only faces a charge from Mueller related to allegedly helping Manafort tamper with witnesses following his arrest.


Haddock writes that sex positivity and inclusion is at the heard of her startup, that they don't hide what they do and they believe all women should be able to vocally claim a space in the pleasure tech sector, which is still heavily dominated by male executives and CEOs.

An Oregon-based company that specializes in robotic sex toys won an award from Las Vegas' Consumer Electronics Show - only to have it taken back because the show's organizers deemed the product "immoral, obscene, indecent (and) profane".

Later, CTA told The Verge the award had been revoked because the Ose did not fit into any existing product categories and should never have been included in the first place.

On Tuesday, the CTA announced a 10 million dollar (£7.8 million) investment in firms and funds focused on "women, people of colour and other under-represented start-ups and entrepreneurs".

With 4,500 exhibitors, the CES trade show is expected to attract more than 180,000 visitors.
