CES 2012 please … wait … for …. me!


Well I should be reporting live from CES 2012 right now rather than the Medford Oregon Airport where fog kept me from leaving yesterday for CES Las Vegas, the world’s premier consumer electronics show held every January.

I was supposed to be reporting live over at our Retirement blog from this morning’s keynote at the Silvers Summit, the CES Venue for the intersection of retirement and technology.

If I DO ever manage to get out – we’re not going to make our new 9:15am departure – I’ll have a lot of new pictures and technology content a several of the blogs:

CES 2012 at Technology Report will be the main tech reporting from the conference.

CES 2012 at the Retire USA Retirement Blog will feature some of the technology of special interest to those over 50.   Over 50 is hardly a “senior” in my view, but that’s the cutoff for AARP and the Silvers Summit.   In fact I think we need a new name for those of us over 50 and I don’t think “seniors” or even “silvers” is really the right angle here.    What’s next, the “Ripe” generation?

I’ll also be posting a bit at Las Vegas Blog, LasVegas1.   I’m staying downtown at the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas’ oldest venue at One Fremont Street.   Looking forward to the history as well as the relaxed feel of the downtown area, which has undergone a fair amount of rennovation and remodelling over the past decade in an effort by the downtown hotels to capture some of the shiny luster of the strip, which has been  “the” Las Vegas for most tourists for some time now.

    Golden Gate, eh? When telephone service first came to Las Vegas, its phone number was “1”.

    They have a great Party Pit casino wherein young attractive females both deal and take turns dancing, but unlike other casinos the Blackjack stays at 3:2 rather than the stingy 6:5 that other Party Pits pay out.

    Their Video Poker payouts are pretty good, the highest being 98.98 percent.

    Their craps tables are 10x odds when almost half of Vegas tables are at or near 5x odds and some craps tables are shamefully down to 2x odds. Its often a three dollar minimum at the craps tables at Golden Gate. Drink service tends to be prompt but has been known to lag a bit at very busy times.
