If New York is the city that never sleeps, then Las Vegas is his loud, drunk cousin who's keeping him up all night. Add to Sin City's inherent rowdiness the congestion and general sexual frustration of the 100,000+ people attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show, and insomnia becomes less an inconvenience than a benefit.

A big, wide world of LCD televisions is just one of the eye-catching displays at the Philips booth. Connected Planet is the company's umbrella for a broad range of products - like Internet-connected Streamium TVs - that use "wireless, broadband, and mobile-enabling technologies to provide seamless accessibility to entertainment, information, and services."

Integra and Integra Research finally learned what pizza makers have known for decades. You establish a reputation for a great basic pie and finish it off to suit each customer's taste. Actually, these brands are simply designing high-end audio/video electronic components as if they were PCs.

Will your next TV be wire-free? To judge from the sets on display at this year's CES, models that wirelessly pull in programs using the Wi-Fi standard are the next hot thing in TV tech. Most of the Wi-Fi-enabled sets here, including models from Sony, Sharp, and Philips, are LCD TVs in the 12- to 23-inch size range.

In a town where poker is a religion, there's nothing like laying down a royal flush. Arousing the press for an early morning press conference on the far side of the Strip from the Convention Center, JVC introduced the ultimate DVD/VHS combo player-recorder.

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. Usually the crowds swell on the second and third days of the show, but this opening day rivaled the most crowded days of yore, and then some.

The insanity begins at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Thursday, January 8, Day 1 of the International Consumer Electronics Show, when the doors open to the public - tens of thousands of dealers, installers, and just plain folks eager to see, hear, and get their hands on the latest high-tech wonders.

Steven Van Zandt of The Sopranos (and Bruce Springsteen's band) lends some celebrity cred to the Sirius satellite radio press conference.

As in past years, the day preceding the official opening of the 2004 International Consumer Electronics Show was devoted to dawn-to-dusk press conferences.

The kitchen used to be considered mom's domain. But it's now the central gathering point in most homes. During parties, people congregate sipping cocktails and chatting while waiting for the food to cook. Mail is read and checks are written at the kitchen table. Messages are transmitted via refrigerator magnet.

Photos by Tony Cordoza In the not too distant future, most TVs will be flat. Svelte, inches-thin LCD and plasma displays just make more sense than bulky tubes, especially in kitchens, bedrooms, and other smaller spaces. Even big-screen projection TVs are slimming down as tubes give way to newer technologies.

Photos by Michelle Hood On third-and-one with 1:22 left in the third quarter of a game between the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, Miami quarterback Jay Fiedler overshot tight end Randy McMichael with a short pass down the middle. The play, which unfolded in roughly 8 seconds, had no bearing on the outcome of the game.
