As you may already know, I’ve been spending the last few days in Las Vegas covering the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show. I’ve been very busy checking out all the latest technology and meeting with some friends too, many of whom I only see once a year.

If you are looking for some coverage of the new and innovative products on display at CES (which happens to be the largest tech trade show in North America), point your web browsers over to Mobile Magazine and Futurelooks where I have been posting some of my articles.

Aside from the gadgetry, what else did I see? Here are a few highlights from my Flickr account.

This is the first year that I arrived early enough to watch some of the move-in process for the product booths. This place dramatically changes in a matter of hours.

One of the annual event is the Tiger Direct Charity PC Race. Competitors try to build a computer as quickly as possible and the winner gets $10,000 to the charity of his or her choice. Stephen failed again, coming in at an abysmal 21st place. He managed to beat iJustine, but is that really an achievement? She is nearly Apple-exclusive, after all.

In addition to iJustine, I also bumped into a few other celebrities. Shown above are Lady Gaga and Dr. Dre at the Monster Cable booth. They were there to promote their respective headphones. Along the way, I also saw Leo Laporte and Walt Mossberg.

CES can be a rather random show. I spotted this guy in the hallway near the press room in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Those icons on his back were fully illuminated and animated.

I’ll be leaving Vegas tomorrow morning and then I won’t see Sin City again for another year. Bittersweet farewell.
