The keynotes for both days of the event were live casted, but just in case you weren’t following along, we’ve highlighted them again. Various bits of news and videos were released this week from manufacturers Samsung, LG, and HTC, while a surprise announcement came late Saturday from Sony announcing that they’ve begun restoring the PlayStation Network.
