    We'll see where it fits on the "list" of people to see, places to go, things to do...

    Hey, FanBoy can do his Electronic Thing but I am Not cutting out the Booth Bunny Thing as I have a New GoPro 1080P Camera that I need to check out to make sure it works as advertised. :D

    I'll check out Mr. P. Smith's Request as I am also interested in it too along with looking at the Latest Sharp LED 60" 3DTV!!! :)

    Dave, that is the same OLED TV that Mr. Smith wants us to check out so I will be looking into it!!!

    It is supposed to be much more Efficient than the Plasma and Better PQ Quality but they had to overcome high production costs which apparently they have done.

    It's not a product. I have no idea why The Verge is speculating on whether it will be affordable, when it's not even a product. It's a technology demo. It's also not being shown publicly; you'll need an invite to the "back room" to see it.

    Of course it is not a Product as yet but a Prototype that the CEO states will debut in the second half of 2012.

    Well the CEO stated it Is A Forthcoming Product and here is their comment about what he had to say about it's Debut.

    "LG Display's claim that the panel "is a significant step forward in the popularization of OLED TVs" gives us hope that the company is on track to ship a 55-inch OLED TV in the second half of 2012, as confirmed by its CEO back in July."

    And we can use our Press Passes can't we???

    That's what CES is about - seeing things that will be out on the market the following year...sometimes only months later.

    As for the press pass...yeah...one of us will be able to do that perhaps. ;):D

    Thank God at least one of us had enough Sense and Clout to get a Press Pass so we can have Access to Back Room Events. Good thing I am toting his Camera Bags so I guess they will let me in too!!! :lol:

    Rich,

    Looking forward to your posts, or anyone who can dedicate themselves, at least initially, to a specific DirecTV-only focus.

    Lots of folks can provide an overview, or CES-wide coverage, but it would be great if someone can sniff out every booth with any DirecTV specific info and post, maybe even with some photos later as time permits, without any non-DirecTV distraction.

    Enter, visit Broadcom, Entropic, Jethead, someplace "new" ... post ...

    Maybe even a new guy/gal, without any special privileges, who can post any and all DirecTV specific gossip ...

    Similar to Citivas' posts from last year ...

    Good luck.

    I've done it the past 4 years - reports and photos both.

    The "target locations" are known in advance to a few folks, and then there are some others pointed out onsite.

    As he pointed out...Rich helps (he carries my camera bag). :D
