I always loved the late 80s/early 90s AT&T ad campaign dubbed “You Will.” Remember that one?

My Personal Best of CES 2010

I managed to get to CES in Vegas this year. It’s been years since I attended and, frankly, after a year of economic trials and tribulations, I was hoping for some technological inspiration. Something to renew my faith in geekdom. And I’m pretty sure I got it.

Slick LG/Avatar Tie-In Promo

Everyone who knows me understands that I am a full-fledged sci-fi geek. I have no issues with the characterization…I wear the badge proudly.

Yesterday, LG launched an interesting Avatar tie-in promotion for its eXpo smartphone.
