It is 4:05 P.M. here in Las Vegas at the CTIA Wireless Show, and things are still a whirl of excitement in a mecca of gadgetry and uber techdom.  I have managed to make my way around the 200 or so companies who are demonsrating Mobile hardware and software solutions.  As far as “new” or “unknown” technologies on the forefront, it seems that companies are focusing on how to better use these technologies, rather than introducing “newer”, “better” or “faster” toys.  It is a pleasure to see things slow down so that we can get comfortable making the most out of available technology rather than worrying about it becoming obsolete before the next time you take a shower!  All of the major cellular network providers are here to show how to use their neato phones and associated accessories to make your life easier.  HP of course has been making a grand presentation every hour that is geared towards convincing users to grasp the mobile lifestyle.  Several software vendors are taking advantage of this “wireless savvy” crowd by offering various solutions for both security and data protection to handheld users.  There are several companies with exhibits who are featuring “rugged” and “waterproof” handheld/cellular phone cases, wi-fi add on cards, and even “sim” cards that can go back and forth between phones and PDA’s.  One of the hilights of my day was meeting with Mike Wong, the Senior Public Relations Manager for SanDisk.  Also as Brian mentioned, my live radio interview on “Into Tommorow” with Dave Graveline.  By the way, he is a very nice guy.  Too bad I had to make his show sound bad with my uhh’s and umm’s. Well I look forward to posting lot’s of  pics from today’s show when I return home.  I will of course need some time to recover since Brian was too cheap to let me fly on an airline, so I have to go back on a cargo plane.  Until then – Happy Wednesday.
