2nd Annual Geek Week starts now

I’m a little late with this. Every year around this time, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) comes around. Another event, the Macworld Expo, also comes around this time. Macworld shows off new Apple products. This is their first big show of the year. I don’t have a Mac or and Ipod, but I will take a look and see what coming up. I don’t cover it like I do CES. Fanboys and girls drool like I do over CES. CES is a big trade show that shows off a lot of the new and notable items, like TV’s, cellphones, computers, stereos, mp3 players, Tivo and Tivo like products, and a whole bunch of other goodies that will come out during the course of the year. Pretty much every brand name you can think of is there and it pretty much marks the start of the Geek New Year. If you like gadgets and other consumer electronic items, this is the show to look forward to every year. I wish I could have been there. That’s something I have been working on for the past year or two. In fact, if I had any New Year’s resolutions, it would be to travel to shows like this and a couple of Jazz Festivals that I’ve been wanting to hit. Needless to say, I’m starting out wrong. Oh, one other note, CES happens in Vegas and also comes at the same time as a certain Porn convention. Coincidence, I think not. We all know Porn and tech go hand in hand. We wouldn’t have had VHS or dad’s if it wasn’t for porn (it’s true, sort of). Now you see another reason why I want to go. šŸ™‚ And you know, PART of what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Anyway, this year’s CES started Monday and goes through Thursday. And in according with this yearly event, I scour the coverage of the show from a couple of different places. That’s all you really need unless there is a place specializing in video (which there is).

CNET, a site I seem to reference a lot is there in force with their coverage (it’s what they do).

And Engadget, my favorite gadget site, is also there in full force.

Both places are Live blogging various press conferences where the BIG new products are being unveiled for the first time. Alot of

good lustworthy stuff comes from these places and that’s where this comes in. I sift through the coverage and pick out the stuff that I’m drooling over…or just want badly. Thus, my “want list” for the start of the year. It’s supposed to be comprised from stuff throughout the year, but the majority comes from CES. If fact, I see a couple of things that I plan to look into a little more thoroughly to talk about. Most you may not care, a couple of you might. It’s fine either way. If ’07 goes the way I think might, the content here in the blog might run all over the map anyway (and surprise a few of you). bear with me or ride with me this week. You might see something you like. From what I see right now, the word on everyone’s lips is iPhone. I may give my impressions soon. It looks pretty neat, actually.
