CES—or, as I like to call it, “The mecca for the world’s most productive nerds!”—starts this week, and I’m downright excited.

My first encounter with CES was in 2006. I can remember sitting in class, ignoring the lesson, and focusing instead on the Engadget stories covering CES. Since then, I’ve marked my calendar every year, setting aside time to stay permanently glued to tech news during this awesome week.
