We just returned home from an extended weekend in Vegas. It was a nice little getaway with hubby as a surprise Christmas gift. The only thing that I’m kicking myself for is not scheduling it a few days later. It wasn’t really an option though since the kids have school and putting that kind of strain on the babysitter (AKA grandparents) just isn’t very fair.What difference did the date make? If I was there a few days later, I could have attended the much coveted CES. When I received invitations to see some of my clients, I was disappointed to have to say “Sorry, I’m leaving Las Vegas on the 5th.” The 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) runs from January 7-10.But one came through for me. After sending condolences for not being able to attend, he said “There will be plenty of stuff going on streaming video-wise. So it’ll be like you’re there!” While I would have loved to attend in person, streaming is the next best thing. What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas… unless, of course, it’s streaming online.

Kodak has lined up “Live from CES” hourly presentations on the K-Zone. I encourage you to stop by the K-Zone to check out the entire schedule of panels, but here is a sampling to wet your whistle:

The New CMO: Chief Memory Officer (Thursday, January 7, at 11:00 p.m. PST) KZONE1

Help, My Mom Friended Me on Facebook (Friday, January 8 at 11:00 a.m. PST) KZONE9

Speakers include: Michael Ferrara (TechnoDad), Jeff Hayzlett (CMO, Kodak), Fred Fishkin (technology reporter, Bloomberg Radio), Jackson Lynch (WIRED)

I realize that being there is the primary choice but streaming is the next best thing. However, for some, the timing on these may conflict with other activities but Kodak has provided a reminder service to help ensure you don’t miss out. Text the KZone Code to 484848 to receive a reminder 20 minutes before the program airs. And if you miss it, “reruns” are nicely organized by day at the K-Zone or you can find them on YouTube.

Kodak has some great products and I’m excited to be able to work with them. As a thank you for sharing this information with you, they’re giving me one of their KODAK D830 Digital Frames. As a special treat, they’re also providing an extra for one of my readers!

  1. The Proof is in the Picture jumps out at me! Thanks for the info and the giveaway. This is what I would've gotten my Mom for Christmas had money not been so much an object.

  2. it told me the page I was looking for doesn't exist… can I still enter even if I can't comment on that post? I did check out the kodak zone

  3. MommyTech – today at 3…
    Momfluencers share how technology helps them stay connected and deal with everyday parenting needs, questions, anxieties – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

  4. KZONE29 Under the Hood: Particulate Inks looks interesting . . . I am an artist (printmaker in particular) and find the conversation about giclees (computer-produced art reproductions) and archival inks interesting. (Oil Paints and oil-based printing inks are mineral based, so the colors never go away . . . in fact, it's paper and canvas that deteriorate.) Giclees are a great way to purchase

  5. I watched “Is this thing on?”
    My server was having trouble loading it, so it was pretty cut up and took a long time to view, oh well, well worth it.
    I found it interesting that you can email directly into the digital frame, it has it’s own email address allowing your elders to enjoy updated photo’s without the frustration of trying to figure out how to download them

  6. I watched “Is this thing on?”
    I used that for my first entry….

  7. I like the Pix Panel. There were a lot of cool pics there. I'm following you on twitter and Facebook. I'm also following Kodak to see if there are other great contests!

  8. main entry: I think "MommyTech" would be my choice because I too can sympathize with moms needing to rely on technology to stay connected with everyday dealing in life with kids & their needs. You want to feel like they are not left with no means of communicate if they need your help & it gives you peace of mind to be able to stay in contact. thank you I would love to win this

  9. "Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Handheld". The ongoing debate between handhelds. My husband and I go through this frequently.
