Reader's Choice

This weekend, The Herd sets off for the Nevada desert to cover CES 2012. Beginning Sunday, we’ll be bringing you a solid week’s worth of all the words, images, video and social media you can handle from the biggest gadgetfest in the land, the Consumer Electronics Show. The week kicks off Monday with Press Day and the AT&T Developers’ Summit (a traditional launching pad for new AT&T devices), and the show itself opens Tuesday morning.

As part of the fun we’ll be handing out our first-ever TechnoBuffalo Best of CES awards, and we need your help. At least one of the awards we hand out will be selected by you, the readers. We’ll run a poll during the show giving you the chance to vote on your favorite product(s) from the show. And we’ll hand out at least one shiny new TechnoBuffalo Readers’ Choice award to the winner(s) on site in Vegas.

Think of it as a chance for you to voice your opinion and give a little shape to the new year in consumer technology – without even having to leave home. The more we can be the voice of you, the consumer, the more we feel like we’re doing something right around here. Consider this a small but important way to kick off 2012!

So stay tuned for all of our CES coverage and keep an eye out for the Readers’ Choice poll beginning early next week. And be sure to vote and spread the word via social media, Email, or good old fashioned text message. You can even tell folks about it face-to-face – imagine that!

Meantime, let’s start this party early via the comments section. What are your pre-show predictions, hopes, and dreams for CES 2012?
