Back To The Gym!

One New Year’s Goal kept! Today I went back to the gym for my first workout of the year. And man are my muscles tire! Surprisingly I don’t feel as sore as I thought I would. I guess the extra bit of stretching helped out. Because it was my first time back, I took it relatively easy. I stuck with […]

The MGM Skylofts

I thought I would post a few photos of where I stayed while I was in Las Vegas for the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show. The MGM Skylofts is like the most pimping hotel I have ever stayed in. You know you’re not in Kansas anymore when you see a LCD monitor in the mirror! There’s also a 32 inch plasma […]

At first I thought spreading the show across two convention centers was a good idea because it would help with some of the traffic congestion created by putting everything in one place. […]

Too Many Parties!

My CES party went off pretty well. This was the first time I held it at the MGM Skylofts and while everyone like the location more, I maybe heading back to the Bellagio next year. The reason is the Skylofts has this problem with having too many people in their suites. We were not even half way full when the […]

Hello From Vegas

We made it nice and safe to Las Vegas. Our flight was about 10 minute late but other than that it was pretty smooth. I almost had a bit of a problem going though customs. Made the mistake of telling them I was here to cover the CES. The customs guy said “Oh, you mean you’re going to work down […]

Viva Las Vegas!

Our bags are packed and we’re off to Las Vegas for the 2006 CES. Our flight leaves at 2:15PM and we’ll be landing in Vegas at 4:55PM. There will be a Maybach limo waiting for me at the airport to take us to our penthouse at the MGM Skylofts. However, I won’t be going directly to the suite. Instead I’m […]
