My CES Experience: Part 2
Posted by Mike Temporale in "Smartphone Talk" @ 09:30 AM
Back to the show floor for me. I spent some time trolling around the Microsoft booth answering peoples Windows Mobile questions and I even got recognized a couple of times. (And to the guy in the C|Net jacket that mentioned how much he liked the site as he quickly passed me by; you should have stopped. I would have liked to chat with you a little.) The Microsoft booth always seemed busy and that goes for the Windows Mobile corner of the booth too. I got to watch Dale Coffin do a couple Windows Mobile demos on the stage. (Nice work Dale!) Overall, I would say Microsoft's Windows Mobile section had a pretty good buzz going on.
Before long it was time to head over to ShowStoppers event at the Wynn (Link Warning: Annoying voice over). The plan was to get to ShowStoppers early because I was double booked. We ended up arriving a little earlier that expected, which wasn't too bad since we checked out the Tiger Direct event. TD was sponsoring a race to see who could build a PC the quickest. They even had cheerleaders to cheer on the participants. The food was amazing - Shrimp, Sushi, Pork Tenderloin, Ravioli with sauce made fresh for you... Hat's off to Tiger Direct for putting on a great event. Far more than I would have expected from the discount online retailer.
