was a guest on the BJ Shea show while at CES. You can hear them
streaming at www.kisw.com from 6 to 10 AM every weekday morning.
The report for the show went fine, until I realized that they
wanted me to talk about certain things that they didn't tell me
about. As you can hear at the end of the report, they never sent
the list of things that they wanted me to talk about, and BJ and
I were on completely different pages.

Well another CES show has come and gone, and
here’s the sights and sounds of the show. I’ve
got a personal opinion of the show posted at the
end of the report, as well as links to other web
pages that cover the show.
This year, the show had 2900 exhibitors and
over 1.6 million square feet of show space.
There were 140,000 attendees expected. That
seems to be slightly larger than last year. Just
as your feet thought they couldn’t stand any
more walking, the show gets bigger. For those
that have never attended, wear comfortable
shoes! I gave out each day at 7 hours of
walking, the show is open for 9 hours per day
usually. After about 5 hours, each speaker and
amplifier and MP3 player and camera and plasma,
etc etc tends to blend into the next, so the
most beneficial hours seem to be about the first
three of each show.
Well, we couldn’t start the report out
without a tacky picture of the plane that the
g/f and I took to Vegas. Here it is:
It was a quick trip to Vegas this year. We
arrived on the Monday night, the first day of
the show and left on Thursday AM, the last day
of the show. 2 days was lots of time though to
get the bulk of the viewing done. There’s a few
areas that I didn’t see, but I think I got more
ground covered this year.
Here’s a couple of shots just to show the
size of the show, both taken from the same
(these pictures were taken first thing at 9AM, the show floor
got a WHOLE lot busier…)
