    No booth babes at CES, I saw a write up from the *adult* orientated Microsoft X360 event, and it was poor!

    I've yet to look for the adult entertainment expo roundups, but that's where they all were.

    If Wil and Brett didn't go to the AVN show, I'm going to be disappointed.

    They needed specific AVN passes. I don't think they could pass the entry test either :p

    I attend the NAB film and TV expo there in April most years - familiar locations. I notice that the crappy catering concessions still cost more than the plane fare. Best food in reasonable walking distance of the LVCC is probably either of two hotels just across the parking lot - about the same price as the concessions, but vastly better food, or hop on the monorail for much better options at any of the places on the strip. I have a soft spot for the fake jungle place in the basement of the MGM Grand, or the Wolfgang Puck at the Venetian.

    Vegas is, for all its undoubted plasticky fakeness, a blast for a few days a year - everyone should see it before they die, if only to discover what excess truly looks like.

    Got itchy feet now.

    Great way to review the show with the picture walkthrough, good work.

    If you need a skivvy to carry bags, get food and drink, generally be abused as the show bitch then let me know and I will gladly tag along next year!

    CES is tring to cut down on the number of booth babes, but i did like the Microsoft buterfly booth babes of 3 or 4 years ago, mmmm. The best way to servive CES is to buy a monorail pass and stay at a monorail station hotel, like the MGM, then grab a free backpack and stuff it with some food and water under some promo fliers, that way you dont have to pay the extorionist rates, that pay for our roads, and schools.


    you didnt see any PCI express sound cards at the creative booth did you?

    Glad you guys had fun. this year it took 100,000 man hours to set up the showfloor.

    hmm 100 inch widescreens. :eyebrow: betcha it weighs a tonne... and for the price of it id rather buy a projector... a normal widescreen projector to game on is better than HDCP, and that way i can even use my pc to watch videos..
    :D

    You should have taken at least one picture of a booth babe guys... I feel something is missing... Or isnt Wil done using them for private matters yet? :naughty:
