Our own Jon Rettinger gives you a small taste of the sights and sounds of the CES show floor.

Depending on what section you are in it ranges from tiny one booth affairs of people in business suits sitting, waiting hopefully for someone to walk in and talk to them, to huge elaborate affairs like Microsoft, Intel, Motorola and so on. (We won’t even discuss Samsung’s booth that appeared to take up a city block, and even the employees couldn’t tell us where press check-in was)

At it’s core, CES is a trade show where deals are made, and small time entrepreneurs dream of being discovered, so everything you would expect in those situations are here, and more.
