Since many companies are good enough to announce products or preview them at pre-show press events, I was able to put this report together before my writing skills decay into gibberish from said press events and the overload that sets in from the CES show floor.
Into the future! The Vegas monorail rocks!
So far, my favorite product isn't on the show floor at all, but runs between the Las Vegas Convention Center and a few choice Strip hotels. The privately-funded monorail came back on line right before Christmas after some startup problems that had it shut down for a few months. But it's up and running and saving me loads on cab rides! So far, though it's pretty empty with most of the show crowd appearing to prefer standing in cab and shuttle bus lines.
