Everyone says CES doesn't start until Monday. But we went to the Las Vegas Convention Center today, disguised as construction workers, and got to take all sorts of cool photos before we started getting dirty looks from the CES rent-a-cops. Most of the booths, including Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Philips, and Hitachi, were coming together so very nicely. I felt hot and bothered just looking at the gaping spaces where huge plasmas would be hung in the coming day. But it's all still very much under construction as you'll see in this entirely unauthorized photo gallery.
Pre-show floor is also a great opp to meet your next CES fling. How? Check by 10 x 10 - 10 x 20 booths mostly. (where GES trolls are seldom seen) Don't let the sloppy outfit and bad hair fool you, give a hand to that exhibitor girl on the ladder waiting for another double sided velcro piece.
Go back the show morning and compliment on her booth and what a great job they did in such a short time. She'll be transformed into the voluntary booth babe you always fancy by then. Talk a little shop, swipe your card and bounce.
Then go back late afternoon with Starbucks on one hand, a keypad on the other and give it your best shot. Chances are she'll fuck your brains out as it's said it's really difficult to find nice and thoughtful man in the world of CE. What a load of crap :P
