For those CE'ers who can obtain credentials to attend the (Jan 6-9) 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas - the "free registration period" for admittance ends September 30th. Note: This event is not open to the general public - you must qualify for credentials per the instructions at the website. The free registration link is here: http://registration2.experient-inc.com/showces111/Default.aspx?pcode=AN4 Last year, a number of DBSTalkers were there, and several of us provided onsite reports. It was also a great opportunity to meet some of our fellow CE'ers there for the first time. The 2010 show attendance was up about 10% from the previous year (about 121,000 attendees). This coming 2001 CES will likely have some interesting things - rumored new devices, new technologies, and new innovative ideas for the future. Last year, we got "up close and personal" looks at a future DirecTV Home Media Center prototype, SWiM16 and SWiM units, 3D HDTV, and much more. For those fellow "gadget heads" who like to see what is new or coming in the near future in consumer technology - this event is quite the experience. Assuming there may be other CE'ers there again, we'll likely arrange another "DBSTalker" meet and greet dinner similar to last year's great experience. More on that as we get closer to the end of the year. Hope to see at least some of you there. If you register and will attend for sure, feel free to PM me to make sure I include you on any "Meeting dinner" we set up there.
