2003 Consumer Electronics Show:Las vegas

2003 CES Las Vegas January 9 - 12th. I am attending. They will have a nice HDTV booth hyping up the Super Bowl at the end of Jan. Anyone else in here going to attend to see the latest in new electronic hardware and software? I am going to stay at Harrahs' Is that a nice hotel? Thanks.

11 stars... Is that the exact number of letters in the name? Can you give us the first letter? Please?

As a pleased user of one of your earlier products, I'm dying to find out what it is.

I would like to buy a vowel

I was thinking of trying to go. do you need to get an insider to get you a pass like E3 or is it open to the public?

Isn't the super bowl on fox? They don't carry hdtv feed right? Just 480p. Just found it kinda funny.

You're right about Faux not doing HD, but fortunately the Super Bowl is on ABC this year. And according to avsforum folks, they've either committed to doing it in HD or there are strong rumors from insiders that they will.

Then I think it's CBS next year - they'll definitely be HD. And Faux the year after, when hopefully they've pulled their head out their a** and have gone HD.

On topic, CES attendees - please report new stuff that you think would be of interest. I personally am very interested in new PVR's, especially if any can do HD.

Hey I don't have HDTV, but I've seen a lot of shows on Fox that have the "Enchanced for widescreen HDTV" banners in the opening credits. What's that all about?

abc has committed to doing the Super Bowl in HD this year, as well as the NBA finals and the Stanley Cup. plus, Monday Night Football will be in HD next season.

And ESPN HD premiers in April!!!

Harrah's is fine. It's older and less expensive than most of the other big name hotels, but it is on the strip (north end), so you could do a LOT worse.

Again, is CES open to the public? I might want to go, if for no other reason than to finally meet bfrank.

Not open to the public but if you want to go I am sure I could find you a badge

Plus I have something VERY cool to show
