CES is just too big for any one human being - or, in our case, nine human beings - to cover completely. And, unless you’re a word-factory like my compatriot, John “The Sciacca” (who, I believe, outsources his blogs and reviews to a small company in Sri Lanka), it’s damn near impossible to write about everything you see at CES while you’re in Las Vegas. And then, of course, there are all the things you didn’t see but wished you had...

According to the CEA, over 110,000 bodies came to swarm the Las Vegas Convention Center and environs for the 2010 CES. Even though there were still two days to go when I took this picture, CES had already taken its toll on these two gentlemen.

One of DXG’s latest HD camcorders records H.264 video in 720p (1280 x 720) at 30 fps, has a 3” LCD screen, uses SD cards with support for higher capacity cards, takes up to 8MP digital still pictures, and uses rechargeable NI-MH AAA batteries (included) or standard alkaline AAAs (you’ll have to buy those yourself). Of course, you might have to take out a loan in order to afford the DXG-569V HD at its estimated street price of...$149.

Maybe I’m still suffering the aftereffects of installation overstimulation at CEDIA last month, but it seems that everywhere I turn someone’s talking up home automation. Yesterday, for example, Control4 issued a press release touting – and rightly so – the many benefits of integrating home security systems with home automation systems. While that’s definitely awesome, the more interesting buzz that I’ve noticed lately isn’t about Home Automation, where the cost of the hardware, installation, and programming is often discussed in terms of a percentage of the cost of the home it’s installed in. No, the chatter du jour is about home automation “for the rest of us” (to borrow a term from Apple that originally had nothing to do with price, nor does it now). Once again, there’s a push to bring home automation to the masses – or at least to the smaller masses who would be willing to spend a couple hundred bucks for it.

But what kind of home automation can you get for $200 or maybe, if you’re willing to splurge, $300?

If $149 was too much for you to pay for being able to record your foolish antics in HD, DXG also offers the new iPod-knockoff-like DXG-567V HD 720p camcorder with a 2” LCD screen and 2X digital zoom available for $129. At this price, I’m thinking of starting a “One HD camcorder per child” project.

If you've been waiting for the prices of stand-alone Blu-ray Disc players to reach a more reasonable level, Sony says that day is almost here.

Hmmm, which pair of legs should I wear today?
