    Doug looks like he may have lost a few pounds from last year.

    btw if anyone hasn't watched this i think some might get a kick out of some of it.

    http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/12/live-from-the-engadget-ces-stage-an-interview-with-qualcomm/

    Its engadget's interview with Qualcomm's Rob Chandhok.

    Theres a little section on there where he discusses some of the things they are exploring like FACIAL RECOGNITION for TV's!! Where when you come and sit down and turn on your TV it'll recognize you and automatically load up your favorites and personal settings and such. Dunno if i'd even use it but stuff like that is crazy.
    I always get a trip unlocking my kinect on the xbox.

    What's up with the google map? This is the second time I've seen a "random" map in a post recently. :confused:

    Did you post this from the DBSTalk app?

    I suspect it was sent from a Smart Phone. My Iphone can send a map of my location in emails, text messages or when using AIM and having a chat. I turned it off just like I turned off "sent from my Iphone" closing.

    Yeah, there's a setting in the advanced section of the new post/reply box in the DBSTalk app that allows you to include a map. I was thinking it got turned on by accident but I can see how a smart phone could do that too.

    Ok, enough of my off topic posting... Great job on the reporting guys. I'm going to have to go to CES one of these years. It looks like a lot of fun!

    thats pretty cool there. wonder if it actually allows light inside when you have ti transparant/clear or with blinds partially open. otherwise if it didn't then you end up with a dark room if your replacing windows with that.

    It was a lot of fun meeting the people I've seen on here and gotten a lot of good information from.

    Yes, I posted from my iPhone, and I think it was the "Advanced" section that allows this. Won't do it regularly, but as I was "Leaving Las Vegas" it had some relevance to CES.

    Well, we finally are wrapping up our trip to Las Vegas and it has been a lot of Fun to enjoy the CES Experience again and Meet & Greet a few of the other DBSTALKER CES Attendees.

    We hope more DBSTALK'rs can come next year to enjoy the wonderful Preview of Electronic Toys at CES 2013 (if the World does not come to an End on Dec. 21, 2012!!! :lol:

    HDTVFAN0001 did a Great Job of Uploading our Pictures and elaborating with Posts and of course he did an Excellent Job of Arranging and Coordinating the 4th Annual DBSTALK CES Attendees Dinner at Maggiones.

    I didn't really see anything about any other TV providers saying anything about RVU except Samsung. Did I just miss it? Or was every other manufacturer just silent on the subject? TIA

    The "reports" from the show were terrific. I'm just happy to have had the opportunity to have dinner with these folks. A great group of people!

    A few bits:

    "The 2012 International CES was the largest in the event's 44 year history, with a record number of more than 3,100 exhibitors across the largest show floor in CES history - 1.861 million net square feet of exhibit space - and drawing a record of more than 153,000 attendees, including more than 34,000 international attendees. More than 20,000 new products were launched at the 2012 CES, which also featured top executives participating in keynote sessions, including those from Qualcomm, Mercedes, Wal-Mart, Intel, Ford, Verizon, Unilver, Ford, eBay, GE, Google and Facebook. Executive delegations from thousands of global companies, from Apple to Zeo, attended the 2012 CES to meet with current and future customers. "

    Q- was MS ripped here by omission?

    Given that they have made it very clear this is their last CES, why plug them?
