O.P. Tongue  CES 2009 anyone?
I and a few others are almost certain that we'll be attending CES 2009 in Vegas in two months. The dates are Jan. 8 - Jan. 11th, cost is $100 + trip to Vegas.

Anyone here thinking or know they'll be attending :)?

Tis what I'm trying to do. Split the hotel with someone, and it'll be an affordable trip.

PLEASE NOTE: The International CES is not open to the general public and all attendees must be affiliated professionally with the consumer electronics (CE) industry to be eligible to attend the show. Due to the investment made by our exhibitors, International CES show management wants to ensure that its attendees are members of the trade. All attendees must provide two forms of ID: one photo ID and the other proving their affiliation with the CE industry (pay stub, business card, etc.). Attendees will not be allowed into the 2009 International CES without these two forms of ID.

Should I just say "crap" ?!
I work at futureshop.. Shouldn't that work?

I will see if I can get the firm to pay for it and if I can fit it on my schedule with the other commitments I already have for January.

If I can make it and anyone wishes to share the room with me, it should be free to you -- all my expenses will be fully reimbursed.

According to quite a few friends, they never ID you once you get your badge, so don't worry about not having proper ID :p.
