Sensory overload at CES

We did a marathon day at CES yesterday, hitting hundreds of showroom booths in 8 hours. To be honest, I ran through the entire hall of auto-related exhibits in about 4 minutes, the amount of time it took me to find the exit door. The greatest challenges of being at CES: bad food, nowhere to sit to rest sore feet except the floor (unless you want a foot massage, which I witnessed outside one of the showrooms -- yuck, do the rest of us have to see that?), long taxicab lines, navigational chaos through multiple buildings and tents, and total sensory overload. Yes, there are 120,000 people at this show, but I have to ask the question - is bigger necessarily better? The guidebook to the show is the size of a telephone directory. Even some of the exhibitors looked too stunned to speak. Or maybe they were just hungry.
One odd thing given the rock concert atmosphere - no lines to get into the women's restrooms.
Mia is back tomorrow with her favorite gadgets and overheard conversations from the show.
