Looking for a good test DVD for Definitive Technology's BP7002 system, I settled on the swashbuckling Master and Commander.

I'm hearing voices from outer space. Even stranger, I'm hearing different voices in different rooms. Susan Stamberg lectures me in the kitchen, Frank Sinatra croons at me in the bedroom, and Swollen Member is scratching in the den.

In 28 years of attending the International Consumer Electronics Show, I never witnessed the tide of humanity that swept into the opening day of this year's CES.
