Posted by geeknews at 1:36 AM on February 1, 2011

I have to admit, I would rather be here in Hawaii for the next couple of days, but when I was a kid there was nothing more fun than a snow storm. Enjoy the time off work, and know that I will be flying out on Thursday nite to head to the windy city for a couple of days and then back to Honolulu. I have a full load of news and commentary for you. Make sure you are subscribed so as not to miss any episodes.

NBCU Appearance #2 CES 2011

Posted by geeknews at 11:58 AM on January 26, 2011

On the third day of CES 2011, Tech Podcast Network had our second NBCU Universal main stage special appearance.

Unlike the first day when we ran into scheduling issues and had to use the Bravo stage, this time we were able to use the main stage at the NBC Univeral Studio.

Thanks go out to NBCU for allowing use the usage of their main stage.

This is an exciting look at some of the coolest products we saw at CES 2011.

NBCU Day 1 Coverage from Bravo Stage

Posted by geeknews at 10:15 AM on January 15, 2011

NBCU was nice enough to offer up their main stage for two events again this year, due to NBCU regular production time over runs we recorded our first NBCU event from the Bravo stage. What is funny is that we finished our 5 company interviews in 26 minutes, yet the program that caused us to not be able to use the main stage, recorded their 8 minute spot 5 times. What was different from take 1 to take 5 still has me still scratching my head, but the producer of that show obviously was not happy.

We had executives from Ford, iRobot, Red, Anti Sleep Pilot and Clickfree we could not not keep these executives waiting,and could not infringe on their time any longer holding them longer waiting for production at NBCU o wrap, so we had to shift to the poorly lit bravo stage. You will see in later videos from our NBCU day 2 coverage the deltas in what going from their main stage to the bravo dome. While I appreciate the support of NBCU and their allowing us to use their facilities we were disappointed that we could not give the companies we invited the appearance experience we had expected. Hopefully in future years we are given time slots that are a lot less conflicting with actual production of NBCU television shows.
