CES by the numbers

Day Three of CES has dawned bright, sunny and cold. We've got miles of stands to walk and an ever growing number of meetings in our diaries. I could spend ages writing a post about the event, but we've got to walk a chunk of the Strip in a few minutes. Instead I'm going to distill the last few days into a set of meaningless statistics.

Number of days the press events start before the show: 1.5
Number of times walked between the Venetian and the LVCC: 3
GB of press releases on memory stick: 9
GB of press releases on MP3 players: 4
Number of press conferences quueued for: 7
Number of press conferences to full to get in: 2
Number of keynotes attended: 4
Hours spent queuing for the Bill Gates keynote: 3.5
Number of maps of exhibit halls: 4
Number of times lost in exhibit halls: 7
Number of sessions attended: 5
Number of sesssions with Xena the Warrior Princess: 1
Number of sessions with Neal Stephenson: 1
Number of articles submitted: 5
Number of emailed announcements: lost count
Number of cups of coffee: lost count
Average hours worked each day: 19.5
Amount of sleep: not enough

Two days to go. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

Once more into the breach...

There seems to be a mad dash at work not to go to CES - since we don't exhibit there but use it mostly for wall-to-wall meetings with suppliers etc. (Our big show is IBC which I managed to get out of last year but don't think I'll be allowed to miss this time round).

Is there anything new, and of interest, Vegas-wise, that will still be there next week when I'm in town?
