Bill was in the house


Electric first day here at CES.

I’m here at the show in our cool “blogger room” on the second floor of the massive 12,000 sq. ft. Intel booth. We’ve got the perfect vantage point to capture activity as it happens and tap into the pulse of CES.

Before the doors even opened, Bill Gates came by the Intel booth to checkout Intel’s latest Mobile Internet Devices. We captured these shots of Bill as he wisely came early, before the throngs.
