CES 2010 - Certainly Not Out, but Certainly Down, Part 5
by Dave and Carol Clark


Over at THE Show, we found a getting around to be way easier than last year. This year all the exhibitors were on the same floor (sans a few in the downstairs convention area who exhibited in the larger 'convention' type rooms). All in all, these exhibitors had very good sound considering the new location and all that that brings to the table.
