(CNN) -- On this week's Tech Check podcast, Doug Gross, Brandon Griggs and Mark Milian predict the biggest tech trends that will emerge from next week's Consumer Electronics Show.

Held in Las Vegas, CES is the year's biggest few days in the gadget world, acting as a coming-out party for major electronics makers, and some smaller ones, to show off their most impressive upcoming offerings.

We discuss tablet computers, high-tech TVs and more -- as well as noting some of the big names that won't be at the show.

"Star Wars: The Old Republic" continues to draw in millions of gamers since its release shortly before Christmas. Mark wrote about years, the tens (maybe hundreds?) of millions of dollars and the massive cast that went into making the game. We talk about how it's being received so far and how it fits with other major game releases.

Our Reader Comments of the Week come from a recent story urging readers to make five Web-behavior resolutions for the New Year. (Those copy-past Facebook status updates? Please, please, stop.)

And our Tech Fail of the Week is handed to just about everything about 80-year-old media mogul Rupert Murdoch's first week on Twitter.
