COMDEX down, CES to go... Hopefully, CES will be a little
less hectic -- not likely though. Things have actually
slowed down, but I had to cancel a 9-
mo. planned vacation to Vegas to do so. Sucks.
The upside was that I did get to spend time in Vegas at COMDEX (thus hanging out with the extremely cool Helix Code dudes), even though I didn't have any fun b/c I thought I was going back in two weeks...now I get to go again for CES, albeit without my wife, and to spend 14-hr days in a booth.
On the bright side, the payoff is getting to go to Deutschland for CeBit later next year...
...maybe I'll rent a BMW and tour the AutoBahn...
Ah...another year, another COMDEX. This one showed more
evolutionary technology than revolutionary. I
liked the focus on wireless, and the "connected home"
I hung out with some rad guys from Helix Code, and hopefully we should be collaborating soon on some really neat stuff.
Ah...my cable modem is fixed again. Seems that AT&T got
it's wires crossed (pun intended) and thought I was stealing
cable modem service and disconnected me. Since I
AM a paying customer, they hooked me back up
and are not charging me for downtime. I like
22Mbps downstream is cool...
