I go to the occassional meeting or trade show where vendors are displaying their wares. I look at what interests me, and sometimes give feedback to the vendors when I have appropriate expertise. Some are interested in my suggestions, some aren't. Not so long ago, I was being given a demo by two guys about their company's leading product.
In January's Java Performance Tuning newsletter there are several interesting news items. Of course we had the usual range of tool vendor and benchmark announcements; what I consider to be "background news", because they are usually there each month.

I love looking through case studies. They can teach you so much about what to do, what not to do, what is in vogue, etc. All those useful design patterns came from analyzing lots of case studies and seeing what worked; and sometimes, more importantly, what didn't work.
So this year I decided to start listing case studies when I find them.
