    CES Encounters (Pictures from the Show)

    It all started at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this past week.

    Jeff and I set up our booth in the Middle of South Hall. The convention is huge - 1.4 million square feet of exhibit space.
    Here's a picture from near our booth.


    The show started out with a flurry of appointments.


    Demoing the Strad with a reporter from PC Magazine.




    Tom White, President and CEO of the MIDI Manufactures Association




    Bill Hensler, VP of Audio Engineering at Adobe Systems



    ICHi from EMU Systems


    I had a chance to look around, but only saw a fraction of the show.

    The Dell booth was very popular and they were showing their new XPS Renegade.

    A Night on the Town

    At Night, Jeff and I decided to go out on the town.

    The new Wynn Casino

    We were invited to the PC Magazine party at the Bellagio. We met some interesting people there and had a good time.



    Jeff and Sarah

    Jeff was mingling with some very interesting company. This strange Klingon women below kept coming on to him:

    You Won't Believe What Happened Next....

    While enjoying some Romulan Ale at Quark's Place, I felt a strange sensation on my neck:


    A passed out (maybe too much Romulan Ale). Next thing I know, I'm at the Emagin booth being implanted with an Eyebud:


    The Eyebud eyepiece. provides the equivalent of a 105" screen. The picture was quite clear.

    Next I was wisked over to the Atom Chip booth to be outfitted with the new 1 terabyte chip drives. These chips have up tp a terabyte of storage, no moving parts and no heat, and may replace hard drives.


    More storage was needed so I was outfitted for wifi to connect to the new Seagate wifi storage unit.


    Next it was to the ATI booth to be outfittle with the Quad SLI cards. My transformation was not yet complete.


    The new Nokia Internet tablet allows me to connect to the collective and run diagnostics.


    After some more implants, my transformation was compete: Gary RoboSapian has been totally assimilated. I was one with the collective.

    Now assimilated I immediately gravitated to the Microsoft booth. Microsoft was everywhere at the show.



    Jon Fairhurst and Jeff figured out a plan to sever me from the collective.


    They abducted me and brought me to the Forum Shop on Las Vegas Blvd.


    The forum severed me from the collective and I am back to normal. Wait... was I ever normal?

    There were more things that happened but you know the old addage...

    Wow !
    Thanks for the pics Gary I feel like I was there with you. Way cool.

    Man wouldn't that be great to have a prossesor with no heat or moving parts involved. Think of the sound library crunching we could do. A whole terabyte.
