Back from the Big Show: a CES Recap

Posted by Tristan Barnum on Tue, Jan 12, 2010 @ 04:46 AM
Mini flying helicopters, giant video game screens, multi-colored lights, thumping music and tens of thousands of people. Some sort of amusement park or arcade attraction? Nah, just another year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the biggest technology and gadget confab in the world.

A small contingent from Voxox attended the four-day event in Las Vegas last week, meeting with press, analysts and other parties to show off the second version of our Voxox Personal Assistant, a productivity tool that helps you better manage your voice communications. Think Google Voice, but richer and more robust. The enhanced version adds remote access functionality, which is key because it takes Voxox off the desktop and allows you to access your personal assistant from any mobile phone.

The show was big success. And now that we've recovered (on sleep at least; my wallet is still way too light after hitting the craps tables), I wanted to share some of our experiences, including select press coverage and random photos I took with my iPhone.
