For many people the new year starts in two days on January 1, 2014. The true technophobe knows that the true new year starts on January 7, 2014 in Las Vegas. That is when the CES (consumer electronic show) kicks off a four day long party that shows us the latest technology gadgets in development. This year the Consumer Electronics Association (“CEA”) is giving us one extra bonus to attend the show.
For the first time 8 winners will be chosen to win $50 gift cards just for doing something we all do on a daily basis. Just one simple tweet from the CEA vending machine gets you a free CES t-shirt. Once you get you get your shirt you can show your pride by wearing it and possibly be one of the two daily winners. Getting 50 dollars and a free t-shirt just by sending a simple tweet plus seeing the latest gadgets. What more could the technophobe ask for?
How about meeting and hearing some of the true giants in the technology world that will be present. This years line up of keynote speakers are truly impressive with some of the biggest movers & shaker including Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Sony President and CEO Kazuo Hirai, Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers and Yahoo President and CEO Mirissa Meyer.
After listening to all these impressive speakers we visit the booths some of the most innovative and influential companies in the technology industry. One such company is Acton with their revolutionary M scooter that folds up into 30”x20”x38” easily portable package that is perfect for the techie on the go. The M scooter is all electric and can travel up to 15 miles on a single charge.
