The Friday Breakthrough is Ottawa’s weekly roundup of some of the internet’s best marketing and social media articles for a less-than-intense day at the office.

This week, the web has been inundated with a continuous flow of technology news coming in from the 2010 CES Conference in Las Vegas. Here at MBMagazine,we like to keep our news and opinions in the marketing and social media realm as much as we can. But, because of some of the exciting innovations being revealed in Las Vegas this week that are related to how people get their information, we couldn’t resist showing you some of the excitement.

1) It’s been one of Twitter’s most trendy topics all week – the all-new Google Nexus One smart-phone. Said to be another “iPhone killer”, which seems to be what everyone calls any new smart-phone, the Nexus One is expected to do big things in the American cell phone industry. Sorry Canada, we’ll have to wait (as usual). Oh, and just to be clear, the picture to the left is not to scale.

2) Whether you’re a tech geek or not, the Light Touch is definitely impressing those around the world with it’s innovative approach to computer usability. Absolutely awesome! See for yourself:

3) Finally, although it may prove to be a major hazard for the general public, the Parrot is taking the always dynamic iPhone and turning it into a very fun toy. I can see how this thing is going to be a serious security risk some day.
