Well after a (surprisingly) smooth drive from California, I’m in Vegas baby!
I’m staying at the Monte Carlo hotel on the Vegas strip and I have to say, it’s not too bad.
I’m surprised because Vegas doesn’t really look that busy but maybe it’s just me.
Anyway, tomorrow will be a busy day.
I’m obviously looking forward to Steve Ballmer’s (last) speech at CES tomorrow because that’s 90% of the reason I’m here.
I’ll be in and out of the press room at the Venetian and the schedule will be as follows..

I have a few more private sessions with some vendors and depending on how relevant they are, I’ll bring you the updates as they happen.
Of course there are a ton of other products and vendors at the Venetian showing their wares but these are the ones that I am really looking forward to.
Off to bed.
Bring on Windows 8 Beta.
