However, CES attendees will see Apple throwing shade on its competitors' struggles about data privacy in an ad plastered on the side of a hotel right next to the Las Vegas Convention Center, one of CES's exhibition spots.

Taiwanese technology heavyweights including Lite-On Technology, motherboard vendor Gigabyte and semiconductor company ELAN Microelectronics Corp. are demonstrating new products at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a week-long showcase of gadgets in Las Vegas that opened Tuesday. But soon after, the company had its award removed by organisers said the firm's founder Lora Haddock.

In 2017 and 2018, for example, they failed to feature any female keynote speakers - something that caused significant backlash and the organisers have sought to rectify this year by ensuring four of its nine such speaking spots are filled by women.

Especially given the varying reasons they claim CES and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) have given for taking the prize back. "CTA has communicated this position to Lora DiCarlo ".

To be determined by an independent panel, these awards are awarded to products that get a high enough score for becoming an honoree. The CTA reportedly informed Lora DiCarlo on Halloween that its product was "deemed by CTA in their sole discretion to be immoral, obscene, indecent, profane, or not in keeping with the CTA's image will be disqualified", the Oregonian reported. And Lora DiCarlo is not able to show its product on the CES floor this week. Clearly CTA has no issue allowing explicit male sexuality and pleasure to be ostentatiously on display.

CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro and Executive Vice President Karen Chupka reportedly followed up with a memo stating that Lora DiCarlo's product-designed with university robotics engineering labs and a team of engineers-was "actually ineligible" for the robotics and drone category.
