When it comes to electronic gadgets, it doesn’t get any bigger than the International Consumer Electronics Show, the CES, each January in Las Vegas. In 2015, the event starts January 6th and runs until January 9th.
The CES usually takes place right before the annual AVN or porno awards in Las Vegas, which this year will be held from January 21st through the 24th at the appropriately named Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. At the AVN Awards trophies are handed out in categories such as Best All-Girl Sex Scene, Newcomer of the Year – Gay Video (I did spell “newcomer” correctly) and Best Non-Sex Performance, which I’m not understanding the purpose of, but OK.
The 2015 CES will provide a snapshot of the technology the unwashed masses will riot over at Walmart or Best Buy next Black Friday. They say “wearable devices” will be hot. 4K and curved flatscreens will be worth trampling a 70-year old woman for. And to make us feel like our flatscreen at home is already outdated, televisions will now have “nits” approaching 1000! In fact some prototype screens at the 2015 CES may have “nits” close to 4000. 4000 “nits!” I swear to God future TV’s will have 4000 “nits!” 4000 must be better than a 1000 “nits.” Do we need more “nits?” I’d guess no, but who wouldn’t want to have more flatscreen “nits” to brag about to friends?
You know what won’t be hot at the 2015 CES? Radio. How do I know this? Right before the Christmas holiday I received my “special” invite to the show and noticed something with a reference to “radio” misspelled.
I guess I should be happy the word “radio” appeared in this invite.
Oh well. Maybe the 2016 CES will feature new and improved “spell check” software.

It’s how the brightness of the screen is measured. 🙂 I figure 4000 “nits” may light up the neighborhood.
I’m guessing they also might have trouble spelling “terrestrial”.
Richard, that just might be the case. 🙂 I hope you’re doing well. Happy New Year! Darryl
