Two weeks until Las Vegas and CES
Once again this year I'm going to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. I'll be flying out on January 4th and returning on the 9th, the show runs the 5th to the 8th. Of course I'll be hitting TiVo's booth first thing and reporting on any news in tivolovers, and my next priority will be Blu-ray info for bluraydisc - yeah, and anything those HD-DVD losers have to say. ;-) I'm excited about the trip - and not just because of the monster mug of coffee I just gulped down, or getting out of the cold for a week. :-) I'm such a geek boy, bright, shiny, expensive toys get my juices going. ;-) I want to bask in the glow of insanely huge plasma screens. I'm not a gambler at all, so that part of Vegas doesn't appeal to me really. And while both Adult Entertainment Expo and Internext Expo are running concurrently with CES this year, I don't plan on hitting those. Last year Internext ran sequentially with CES, so I attended Internext for work, then CES for fun. But since they're simultaneous this year, it is just CES for me. :-) (Yes, I would pick the gadgets over the pr0n.) About the only thing missing is a geeky girl who'd like to go with me - maybe next year.

What do you mean "over?" Gadgets are pr0n!

Ok, so I'll pick the silicon pr0n over the silicone pr0n.

Oh, I would totally hit the Adult Entertainment Expo if it was me!

I work for a company that handles online payments, including the adult industry. After a while, it gets old. Not that I don't like pr0n, but saturation level is a bit much. :-) And when I've been to shows like that, I've been working - going around, shaking hands, giving out cards, pitching our products.

hm, I may pass on the shaking of the hands.

Most of the people in the industry are just business people really, they just happen to sell sex. :-)

Yep.

Though there are some real characters. :-)

Have a nice time, the temperature has been nearly in the 70s this week. Don't forget to stop by Capriotti's for a good sammich.

Check out the iRobot booth at CES. You can see the Scooba :)
