I went to the biggest tech show in the world after not going for the past 7 years — and I was surprised by how little had changed

I went to CES, the biggest tech show in the world, for the first time since 2012. To be honest, not much has changed since the last time I went seven years ago.

I rode in a self-driving car for the first time at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The car was operated by Yandex, the Google of Russia. If I hadn't been making a point of paying attention to the vehicle's performance, I likely would have forgotten that it was driving without human assistance.   Yandex is the Google of Russia, known for running a search engine that, by some measures, is more popular than Google in its home country.

Investors fell in love with a basket of stocks they called FAANG (for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) and rode those investments up a tall curve for years.
