With CES 2010 just a few sleeps away, the buzz surrounding this year's show is reaching a feverish pitch. With a dry week of news behind them, bloggers and reporters alike are lapping up the sweet nectar of pre-show hype.
I think many in the industry are looking to CES as a forecast for the next few years - like Ground Hog Day for the tech industry.

Come join AMD Social Media mavens and some of our cooler executives for an informal and entertaining meet-up/tweet-up at the St. Regis Hotel.

Day 2/3 summaries, Fatal1ty presentation, Exhibit hall events, AMD overclocking
The final day of Quakecon was a sight to behold as gamers played throughout the night and got their fill of headshots, monster frags, tons of swag, and some even made a few new friends along the way. The first event on the main stage was our PC Perspective Hardware Workshop where Ryan and most of our staff held a overclocking exhibition with AMD, DirectX 11 preview, Quakecon 2009 case mod contest finalists, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision demonstration.
Introduction, Registration, BYOC waiting line, Shelby GT500 unveiling

More than 3,000 gamers are expected to fill the BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) section to capacity by the end of the three-day event. Check out all the action from Day 1 of Quakecon 2009.

As the more astute of you know, PC Perspective is going to be a part of Quakecon this year. Judging case mod contests is just a part of it, as is figuring a way to rig the contest so that one of our members can drive home in the new Shelby GT. There will also be a both with tons of t-shirts and prizes to be won. Enough prizes that Ryan has had to resort to extreme measures to get them all there.
