This is David; I wanted to pop up a quick post about my first tour of duty at our booth at CES. Today was the first day of CES 2008, and the traffic in Las Vegas Convention Center was impressive. Getting our badges was a challenge this morning because the registration computers were having issues. The Consumer Electronics Show computers were down... irony is truly the spice of life. :)

To deal with the mammoth lines the convention employees handed out temporary badges. Bright orange stickers that say "Temporary" on them. Not the coolest looking badges in the whole world, but they got us inside.

After those hiccups, my tour of duty at the booth was almost a relief. It was a lot of fun actually. Quite a few members of the press / Blog-o-sphere came by to see us and check out the new demos. In addition to the P5E3 Premium motherboard (which just launched recently) we are showing off a new ASUS M70 laptop demo with Splashtop on it. For ASUS notebooks, Splashtop is being branded as "Instant Fun." The notebook demo is really cool, and everyone seemed duly impressed. Thanks to all of you who stopped by to chat and to check out our demos - we appreciate the support.

Booth duty is mostly pretty fun, especially when the booth is hopping. Interesting people from all over the world come to CES, and I am constantly impressed with all the exciting innovations.

We will continue to update the blog throughout the show. If you're here at the show, please stop by and say hello.

Thanks everyone,

David
