CES 2014: Our Fake Recap

by Scott Lydon

 

CES, the annual Consumer Electronics Show, is a glittering week-long extravaganza that boils from the very heart of Las Vegas, a big pile of sin in the middle of the desert. It sounds like the most perfect thing in the world, doesn't it? Except - it's not. It's boring and tedious and nobody has free Wi-Fi and the food is greasy and there's no time for fun and, well, UGH! So this year, Woot.com has chosen to stay and home and just make up a bunch of lies about what we would have seen had we gone. This is... Fauxverage 2014!

Right after the jump, of course. See you inside.

CES: Our 2013 Faux-verage Begins To End

by Scott Lydon

Well, it's the end of a hard week of not walking around Las Vegas. No famous night life, no balmy desert weather, no waking up in bed with a buyer mumbling "let's just keep this between ourselves at the next staff meeting" and no waiting in a TSA line while trying to get back home before 9am on Monday. Such is the life of a writer.

But don't despair! Today I'm taking a good, hard, super-short, made up look of the most adorable products CES didn't have to offer. Come inside for the last day of our 2013 faux-verage, and be awwwwww-struck!

CES: Our 2013 Faux-verage Begins

by Scott Lydon

If you're like us, you're sitting in an office while Jason Toon flies to Las Vegas for a week. And you're thinking "WHAT THE FREAK, JASON TOON, WHY DIDN'T I RATE A TRIP TO WHAT I ASSUME IS PROBABLY A LUXURY HOTEL WITH AN OPEN BAR????" And that's when it hits you, us. The way you can prove yourself to the world. And suddenly, the Faux-verage is born.


 

Over the next week, you'll see Jason's on-the-spot reports from CES every morning. He's going to be shaking hands, meeting people, taking photos, and finding the very best gadgets and gee-gaws. But you'll also be enjoying MY coverage as well, about the things I'm PRETENDING to see. Today, I'm pretending to see the opening ceremonies. Come inside, and let's get started!
