CES Blog #1 – On the Way to Vegas
My day started off very early. Ed picked me up at my house at 6 a.m. and we set off for the airport to catch a flight to Vegas to attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). To save a few bucks, we flew standby, which worked fine until we reached Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. It seems that a lot of people also want to get to Vegas today and all the flights are full. It looks like we have at least a six hour wait ahead, so here I sit, writing this blog entry to kill some time. The bright side is that, if you have to get stuck at an airport, Sky Harbor is a good one; there’s free WiFi and they have a Nathan’s hot dog stand with free soda refills.
I ate a chili dog to kill some time, which as it turned out, only took about five minutes. I was hungrier than I thought. Now I’m resisting the urge for a waffle cone.
With any luck at all, we’ll land in Vegas by 9 p.m. local time and get to our hotel. Circus Circus. Not the best, but once again, cheap. You gotta do what you gotta do. We had hoped to attend the CES Unveiled presentation tonight, but there is no way we’ll make it there in time. Hopefully we won’t miss too much.
If you want to follow our CES adventures, follow @newmediascoop on Twitter, as well as myself, @peakaction and Ed, @elozano We’ll be tweeting everything that happens, and you can expect one or two blog posts per day. We’ll be reporting on all the best gadgets and announcements.
