You'll know we're recording this episode from the stage before the show has actually begun because of the loud machinery crunching away in the background as vendors ready their booths. In the meantime, we cover Google's official introduction of the Nexus One, a 3D network arriving on your TV, and Microsoft's tablet computer. You heard me right: Microsoft.

Just found a use for Wolfram|Alpha.
I x^2 + 2( 4/5 (x^2)^(1/3) – y )^2 = 1 the show.
Try that equation in Wolfram|Alpha.

I would like to throw in some information regarding the sour grapes comment that Bono of U2 made about digital rights management. U2 made the most money of any group in 2009 doing live tours. So in this light Bono’s statement seems even more ridiculous since obviously U2 is doing despite supposedly rampant piracy. Here is a link for verification

A couple things I found interesting about the Dubai tower is that the architect in charge also built the twin towers of the world trade centre. The features to keep this one safer are mind boggling. For example, every 13 floors you have a safety floor where it’s fire proof and the windows open, and there are elevators along the corners there so they can function in a disaster. Also, there are 135 elevators all high speed, taking a matter of minutes to reach the top.
Have fun at CES!!!
LOVE THE SHOW
