It’s Monday, so that means it’s time once again for the weekly vlog here on Beyond the Rhetoric. Many of my techie blogger type friends spent last week in Las Vegas, soaking in all the gadgets and tech that the trade show has to offer. Me, I spent that time at home. With my good friend Cuptain America. No, that’s not a typo.

I started going to CES way back in 2008 and I went for eight years straight. Then, for a myriad of different reasons, I skipped last year. And I skipped this year too. Curiously enough, covering the show from home is a lot less stressful. I even got to have some of the show delivered to me.

Check out the Linksys Velop unboxing video on MEGATechNews for a closer look at the new modular mesh Wi-Fi system that can blanket your entire home in speedy Internet coverage. In the video, I also talk about going out to eat Taiwanese beef noodle and the new blog design here at Beyond the Rhetoric.

And yes, I am extra salty this week. Can you guess why? Many other Vancouverites are suffering through the same thing. But at least I’ve got Cuptain America by my side. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end for a special melodious cameo!
